Craig homers, Cards avoid sweep, top Pirates 5-4

Sports

July 1st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Allen Craig homered for the second time in three days and All-Star Yadier Molina also connected as the Cardinals beat the Pirates 5-4 on Sunday.  St. Louis avoided getting swept in a three-game series at home by Pittsburgh for the first time since 1991. Jason Motte got the last four outs for his 17th save in 21 chances to end the Pirates’ four-game winning streak. Motte was the last in a flurry of moves by rookie manager Mike Matheny that left three players seeing time at two positions.  Michael McKenry’s three-run homer capped a four-run fourth that put the Pirates ahead for the first time and also gave them a homer in nine straight games. They’ve totaled 15 homers in their longest streak since another nine-gamer in June 2008.  Next up for the Cards is the Colorado Rockies. Catch the action Monday, beginning with the pre-game show at 6:20-p.m. on KJAN. The 1st pitch is at 7:15-p.m.

Cardinals Fall to Pirates 14-5

Sports

June 30th, 2012 by admin

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Clint Barmes, pinch-hitter Alex Presley and Garrett Jones each homered in a four-run sixth inning that snapped a tie, and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals 14-5 in a game that began in 101-degree heat Friday night. 
 
Andrew McCutchen had four of the Pirates’ season-high 19 hits, the last a three-run homer off Marc Rzepczynski in the ninth. McCutchen also robbed Allen Craig of a third extra-base hit with a running catch near the center field wall in the fifth. 
 
The Pirates have 38 homers this month, one off the franchise record set in 1975, and the run total was the franchise’s best since they also scored 14 on Aug. 31, 2010, at the Chicago Cubs.
 
Carlos Beltran got his 2,000th career hit on an RBI single in the third against Kevin Correia (4-6).

Sports

June 29th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — U.S. wrestler Stephany Lee has been suspended for a year and must give her up spot on the Olympic team after testing positive for marijuana. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency on Thursday says Lee tested positive for tetrahydrocannabinol acid, a marijuana metabolite, at the Olympic Team Trials in Iowa City on April 21. Lee, who also tested positive for marijuana in 2009, has accepted the sanctions. She must forfeit any medals, points or prizes dating back to her positive test. Ali Bernard, who lost to Lee in a best-of-three championship series at the Olympic Trials at 72 kilograms, has been declared the trials champion and has been nominated to represent the United States in London.

HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Rockets have taken Kentucky forward Terrence Jones with the 18th pick in the draft, their third and final selection of the first round. The 6-foot-9 Jones played only two college seasons, and averaged 12.3 points and 7.2 rebounds last year, helping the Wildcats win the NCAA championship. Earlier, the Rockets took Connecticut guard Jeremy Lamb at No. 12 and Iowa State forward Royce White at No. 16. The 6-5 Lamb entered the draft after just two college seasons. He averaged 17.7 points and 4.9 rebounds for the Huskies last year and became just the sixth sophomore in Connecticut history to score 1,000 career points (1,060). The 6-8, 270-pound White averaged 13.4 points, 9.3 rebounds and five assists per game last season.
