Cardinals plan to keep catcher Molina active

Sports

October 14th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals plan for now to keep catcher Yadier Molina active on their active roster despite a strained left oblique muscle sustained in Game 2. Molina flew on the team charter to the Bay Area on Sunday night after leaving Busch Stadium for an MRI exam. After the team arrived at AT&T Park on Monday, Molina met with team doctors and medical staff in the training room of the visitors’ clubhouse.

Manager Mike Matheny was encouraged Molina was able to throw Monday. Matheny carried three catchers and has Tony Cruz and A.J. Pierzynski to fill the big void, if needed.

Iowa State sees improvement in QB Richardson

Sports

October 13th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State spent years trying to figure out what it had in quarterback Sam Richardson, and know now that he might be the Cyclones’ most valuable player. Richardson set a school record with 37 completions in Iowa State’s 37-30 win over Toledo last weekend. He threw for 351 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions while rallying the Cyclones (2-4, 0-3 Big 12) past the Rockets to keep their slim bowl hopes alive.

The junior quarterback has thrown 10 TD passes with just four picks through six games. He’s also Iowa State’s leading rusher with 283 yards. The Cyclones take on Texas (2-4, 1-2) in Austin on Saturday.

Wong homers in 9th, Cards edge Giants to tie NLCS

Sports

October 13th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Kolten Wong hit a leadoff home run in the ninth inning and the resilient St. Louis Cardinals beat the San Francisco Giants 5-4 Sunday night, evening the NL Championship Series at one game each. The Cardinals lost All-Star catcher Yadier Molina to a strained oblique muscle in the sixth. St. Louis got late homers from Oscar Taveras and Matt Adams before Wong connected off Sergio Romo.

The Giants made it 4-all when pinch-runner Matt Duffy dashed home from second base on a two-out wild pitch in the ninth. Game 3 will be Tuesday in San Francisco.

Cards C Molina leaves game with strained oblique

Sports

October 13th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Star catcher Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals left Game 2 of the NL Championship Series with a strained muscle on his left side. Molina was replaced by Tony Cruz in the top of the seventh inning with the score tied 2-all Sunday night. Cruz’s passed ball helped the Giants go ahead in the seventh.

Molina hardly budged from the batter’s box when he grounded into a double play against San Francisco reliever Jeremy Affeldt in the sixth. The six-time All-Star remained hunched over until a trainer and manager Mike Matheny came out to meet him. Molina walked off on his own, but was clearly in pain.

Molina, who missed seven weeks this season with a thumb injury, has won six straight Gold Gloves and finished third in NL MVP voting last year. His loss was a huge blow to the Cardinals, who had trailed 1-0 in the best-of-seven series.

 

Cardinals GM: Wainwright weary more than hurt

Sports

October 13th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright insists he’s fine physically, though he’s failed to make it through the fifth inning in both of his postseason starts. St. Louis general manager John Mozeliak said Sunday that he thinks Wainwright’s workload is simply taking a toll. The GM said it might be a good idea in the offseason to figure how to cut down on all those innings.

Counting the postseason, Wainwright has thrown 512 2-3 innings the last two years. That’s by far the most in the majors. In nine postseason innings, Wainwright has surrendered eight earned runs and 17 hits. He blamed mechanical woes and not a chronic elbow issue after losing Game 1 of the NL Championship Series to San Francisco on Saturday night.

A big September may have worn down Wainwright. He was 5-0 while totaling 39 innings, although he was scratched from the regular-season finale after the Cardinals clinched the NL Central.

Giants shutout Cards Saturday, Game 2 in NLCS is today (Sunday)

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The St. Louis Cardinals shelled Madison Bumgarner the first time they faced him in the National League playoffs before last night, torching him for six runs in three 2/3 innings during the 2012 division series. Bumgarner turned the tables on the Redbirds Saturday while leading the Giants to victory in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series.

Bumgarner struck out seven while allowing four hits over 7 2/3 innings of a 3-0 shutout at St. Louis. He was breezing until the seventh, when the Cardinals collected consecutive one-out singles before Kolten Wong tapped out and pinch-hitter Tony Cruz fanned. Bumgarner also set a major league postseason record with 26 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings on the road.

Travis Ishikawa put the Giants ahead with an RBI single in the second before Hunter Pence scored on Matt Carpenter’s error at third base later in the inning. Brandon Belt added a sacrifice fly one inning later. That was more than enough offense for the Giants to win for the 12th time in their last 13 playoff games.

Loser Adam Wainwright allowed two earned runs and six hits in just 4 2/3 innnings.  Game 2 is tonight (Sunday) in St. Louis, where Lance Lynn will get the starting nod for the Cards against Jake Peavy. Pre-game coverage on KJAN begins at 6:12-p.m., with the first pitch at around 7:07.
