Santana pitches first no-hitter in Mets’ history

Sports

June 2nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

NEW YORK (AP) — Johan Santana pitched the first no-hitter in New York Mets’ history, helped by an umpire’s missed call and an outstanding catch in left field in an 8-0 victory over St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night. After a string of close calls in their 51-season history, Santana finally finished the job in the Mets’ 8,020th game since the team was born in 1962. He needed a couple of key assists to do it. Carlos Beltran, back at Citi Field for the first time since the Mets traded him last July, hit a line drive over third base in the sixth inning that hit the foul line and should have been called fair. But third base umpire Adrian Johnson ruled it foul and the no-hitter was intact. Mike Baxter made a tremendous catch in left field to rob Yadier Molina of extra bases in the seventh, getting injured in the process.

Sprint Center to host Big 12 hoops though ’16

Sports

June 1st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Big 12 men’s basketball tournament will remain in Kansas City through 2016. The conference announced a two-year extension to its deal with the Sprint Center, which has hosted the event the past three years and was scheduled to host the tournament through 2014. There were questions about the future of the tournament with Missouri and Texas A&M in leaving for the Southeastern Conference next month. Some believed the tournament would move to Dallas or Oklahoma City to avoid playing in a state without a Big 12 member. Still, the Sprint Center is a short drive from Kansas and centrally located for fans of Kansas State and Iowa State, which is why Kansas City has been a traditional host dating to the days of the old Big Eight.

June 1st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Mike Goodes shot a 7-under 64 to take a two-shot lead after the first round of the Principal Charity Classic on Friday. Goodes opened the Champions Tour event with four straight birdies and closed with birdies on the 17th and 18th holes. Goodes shot a 30 on the front nine and tied his lowest overall round on the Champions Tour. Jay Haas, who won in Iowa in 2007 and 2008, leads a group at 5-under 66 that includes South African David Frost and former Masters champion Larry Mize. Mark Brooks heads a group three strokes behind Goodes. Sixty-eight-year-old Graham Marsh scored the tournament’s first hole-in-one since 2006 when he aced the 203-yard second hole. Marsh finished with a 73.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Incoming Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby says he is against stipends for student-athletes, pointing out that there are other places where they can play for money.

Bowlsby also repeated the stance of acting commissioner Chuck Neinas, school presidents and athletic directors that the Big 12 supports a four-team playoff consisting of the highest-ranked teams to determine college football’s national champion.

Bowlsby spoke after the final session of the Big 12′s annual spring meeting Friday, and just before he hopped on a plane to attend the Pac-12 meetings.

Bowlsby is finishing up his tenure as the athletic director at Stanford. He will officially take over at the Big 12 on June 15.

ISU Linebackers Rated High

Sports

June 1st, 2012 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State linebacking duo of A.J. Klein and Jake Knott are part of the reason that the Cyclones’ linebackers are rated second nationally as a group by Lindy’s College Football Preview. Both were named as first-team All-Big 12 selections.  Klein was voted second-team All-American.

“Arguably the two best linebackers in the Big 12 – and one of the most productive tandems in the nation – play in Ames. Senior A.J. Klein (116 tackles, 7.5 for loss) was the Big 12’s Co-Defensive Player of the Year in 2011, and senior Jake Knott (115 tackles, four forced fumbles) was also a first-team All-Big 12 pick.”

Klein is rated as the second-best inside linebacker nationally and Knott the seventh-best outside linebacker in the country.
