Lynn pitches Cardinals past Rockies 6-2

Sports

July 6th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Lance Lynn returned to his All-Star form for the Cardinals. The St. Louis rookie right-hander broke out of a three-start slump with six shutout innings, and Matt Holliday and Carlos Beltran drove in a pair of runs apiece to lead the Cardinals to a 6-2 win over the Colorado Rockies on Thursday night. Lynn (11-4) bounced back with a strong effort following a trio of disastrous outings. He surrendered four hits and struck out seven in winning for the first time since June 13. Lynn, voted to the All-Star team by his fellow players, was 0-2 with a 9.98 ERA in his three previous starts. His performance helped St. Louis win for the fourth time in five games, and 11 of 14 against Colorado. The Rockies have lost four of five. Colorado has scored 13 runs in its last six games. The hot-hitting Holliday paced the attack with a run-scoring groundout in the first and a bases-loaded single in the fifth off Colorado starter Christian Friedrich (4-6), who gave up six earned runs in 4 1-3 innings. Holliday, who has an RBI in each of his last six games, is 34 for 68 with four homers and 21 RBIs in his last 18 games. Jake Westbrook (7-6, 3.91) will face Florida Marlins right-hander Ricky Nolasco (7-6, 4.62) in the opener of a three-game series this evening (Friday) in St Louis.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — George Wine, a longtime sports information director at Iowa and co-author of an autobiography of Hawkeyes coach Hayden Fry, died Thursday following a heart attack. He was 81. The university said Wine died at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, two days after undergoing hip replacement surgery. Wine served as the Hawkeyes’ SID from 1968-1993. He later co-wrote “The High Porch Picnic” with Fry and a book on Iowa’s sports history titled “Black & Gold Memories: The Hawkeyes of the 20th Century.” A former president of CoSIDA, he was inducted into the Kinnick Stadium Media Wall of Fame in 2006.

Wine was born in Omaha, Neb., and served in the Air Force from 1951 to 1954.He graduated from Iowa two years later and was the sports information director at what is now Northern Iowa and Memphis before returning to his alma mater and home state. Survivors include his wife, Dr. Barrie Anderson, and son, Steve Wine, a sports writer for The Associated Press based in Miami.
