Penn State, Iowa still unbeaten in Big Ten

Sports

October 19th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Penn State was supposed to be too depleted by defections and turmoil to be a factor in a Big Ten title race it is ineligible to win. Iowa simply wasn’t supposed to be good enough in 2012, even though the Legends Division appeared to be wide open. The Nittany Lions and Hawkeyes will meet on Saturday night in Iowa City in a surprising matchup of teams without a Big Ten loss.

Penn State (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten) has rallied from the most turbulent offseason in the history of the sport and an 0-2 start to post four straight wins. Iowa (4-2, 2-0) has overcome a terrible passing game and a pair of home losses.

Punter Colquitt a bright spot for Chiefs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — One criticism being lobbed at Kansas City general manager Scott Pioli is that he still has not come to contract terms with punter Dustin Colquitt. Colquitt is one of the best punters in the NFL and one of Kansas City’s best players. He says he has no plans to leave Kansas City even, though he could be an unrestricted free agent in 2013. He says there’s no friction between him and Pioli, and that he also has a strong personal relationship with owner Clark Hunt. He indicated contract talks are under way.

Cardinals beat Giants 8-3 to take 3-1 lead in NLCS

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Adam Wainwright threw seven innings of four-hit ball and the St. Louis Cardinals roughed up Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants in an 8-3 rout Thursday night that gave them a 3-1 lead in the NL championship series. Matt Holliday, Jon Jay and Yadier Molina had two RBIs apiece to lead a 12-hit outburst by a team that batted just .198 through the first three games of the series. The defending champion Cardinals can wrap up their second straight trip to the World Series as a wild card with a victory at home Friday night in Game 5. Lance Lynn faces Giants lefty Barry Zito. Lincecum was a bust in his first postseason start since the World Series clincher over Texas in 2010, giving up four runs in 4 2-3 innings.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Carlos Beltran is not in the St. Louis Cardinals’ starting lineup for Game 4 of the NL championship series against the San Francisco Giants, a day after injuring his left knee while running on a double-play grounder. Matt Carpenter batted second in place of Beltran and played first base, with cleanup man Allen Craig moving to right field for Thursday night’s game against the San Francisco Giants. The Cardinals lead the series 2-1. Manager Mike Matheny says tests showed no significant injury but that Beltran is sore. Matheny also says Lance Lynn will be his Game 5 starter Friday night against Giants lefty Barry Zito.

Iowa governor to honor wrestling legend Dan Gable

Sports

October 18th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Gov. Terry Branstad is expected to honor Iowa wrestling legend Dan Gable on his 64th birthday next week. Branstad will issue a special proclamation declaring Oct. 25 as Dan Gable Day during an event at the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum in Waterloo. In a press release, Branstad says Gable represents the “commitment, perseverance, and dedication” that are the foundation of Iowa. Gable won three state wrestling titles in high school, two NCAA titles at Iowa State University, and an Olympic gold medal in 1972. Then, he coached the University of Iowa’s wrestling team to 15 NCAA championships and 21 consecutive Big 10 titles.

Beltran leaves with strained knee, is day to day

October 18th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Carlos Beltran’s availability for Game 4 of the NL championship series was uncertain after the St. Louis Cardinals slugger left Wednesday’s game with a strained left knee. Subbing for Beltran in right field, Matt Carpenter hit a two-run homer in his first at-bat to help the Cardinals beat the San Francisco Giants 3-1 for a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Still, the prospect of losing Beltran for even a game or two is troubling for St. Louis given his postseason pedigree. Beltran leads the Cardinals with a .400 postseason batting average. He has three home runs and six RBIs in the playoffs this year and leads all players with eight extra-base hits.

Beltran sub boosts Cardinals in Game 3

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Matt Carpenter hit a two-run homer after subbing for an injured Carlos Beltran and the St. Louis Cardinals chased Matt Cain before a 3½ hour rain delay in the seventh inning of a 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants for a 2-1 series lead Wednesday night.

Kyle Lohse worked around a season-worst five walks in 5 2-3 innings. Mitchell Boggs struck out Hunter Pence and Brandon Belt with two on to end the seventh and Jason Motte earned the first two-inning save of his career to reward what remained of a sellout crowd of 45,850, perhaps a third, that stuck around.

Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro had two hits and a clean game in the field, two days after Matt Holliday rammed him breaking up a double-play ball. Manager Bruce Bochy had said there would be no retaliation, and Game 3 was collision-free.
