Big Mac returns to SoCal as Dodgers hitting coach


November 8th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mark McGwire was hired Wednesday as hitting coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers, where he’ll work with All-Star sluggers Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier. McGwire spent the past three seasons in the same job with the St. Louis Cardinals, where he starred during parts of his 16-year major league career. During McGwire’s tenure, the Cardinals led the National League in batting average (.269) and on-base percentage (.337), ranked second in runs (2,263) and fourth in slugging percentage (.416). He worked with All-Star sluggers Carlos Beltran, Lance Berkman, Matt Holliday and Albert Pujols, while helping develop 2011World Series MVP David Freese.

The job is a homecoming for McGwire, who is from the Los Angeles suburb of Pomona and currently lives in Orange County. He played college baseball at Southern California and was a member of Oakland’s 1989 World Series champion team. McGwire replaces Dave Hansen, who was let go last month and hired by the Seattle Mariners for the same job.

Chiefs’ Quinn rules out again with concussion


November 7th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn has not been cleared for contact following his concussion and will miss his second straight start Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Matt Cassel will start in Quinn’s place. Cassel was the starter the first five games of the season before sustaining a concussion and then losing the job during the bye week.

Quinn was hurt early in the Chiefs’ loss to Oakland on Oct. 28. He missed Thursday night’s game at San Diego, when Kansas City dropped to 1-7 with its fifth straight loss.  The former first-round draft pick returned to Kansas City late Tuesday after being advised by neurologists that he should avoid contact. Quinn has been cleared to take part in light workouts during the individual portion of practices.

Cyclones Overwhelm Lady Statesmen in Exhibition


November 7th, 2012 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State women’s basketball team defeated the William Penn Lady Statesmen, 98-55 in the Cyclones’ second exhibition game of the season on Tuesday night in Hilton Coliseum. The Cyclones were lead offensively by sophomore Fallon Ellis who came off the bench to post a 20-point, 12-rebound double-double on a perfect 7-7 shooting night.

The Cyclones looked sharp early, getting off to a fast start and led 16-4 less than five minutes into the game. Senior Chelsea Poppens fueled the Cyclones early, hitting her first three shots from the field. The forward ended the night with 12 points and eight boards in just 14 minutes of work.

The Lady Statesmen fought their way back into the game later in the first half, narrowing the Iowa State lead to one point at 33-32 with 4:16 to play in the half. A late surge by the Cyclones, capped by a Brynn Williamson trey with 10 seconds left in the half, gave Iowa State a 42-34 cushion heading into the locker room.

After the intermission, the Cyclones picked up right where they left off, shooting 70.8 percent from the field and 8-13 from the three-point line in the second half. Iowa State was able to pull away from William Penn as senior post player Anna Prins scored 13 of her 15 points after the break. Ellis also had 13 of her 20 points in the second half.

Junior forward Hallie Christofferson also chipped in 17 points on the night, while freshman guard Kidd Blaskowsky had 14 points on 5-6 shooting from the field, while adding four assists and four steals. In all, 10 Cyclones saw double-digit minutes on the floor.

The Cyclones will open regular season play Sunday at 1 p.m. CDT in Hilton Coliseum to take on Western Illinois.
