Cardinals Fall to Astros 5-4

Sports

May 5th, 2012 by admin

HOUSTON (AP) – Jose Altuve put the Houston Astros on top with a three-run homer in the second inning and they held on for a 5-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night.

The win is the fourth straight for the Astros and the second consecutive loss for the National League Central-leading Cardinals.

The game was tied at 2-2 before Altuve’s shot, which a fan in the top row of the Crawford Boxes in left field caught, to give Houston a 5-2 lead.

It was another good night for Altuve, who is among the top batters in the NL with a .360 average this season. 

Houston starter Lucas Harrell (2-2) gave up seven hits and four runs in 5 1-3 innings. Closer Brett Myers allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth for his seventh save after three other relievers combined to pitch 2 2-3 scoreless innings.

Big 12 Hires Stanford AD Bowlsby as Commissioner

Sports

May 4th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

LAS COLINAS, Texas (AP) — The Big 12 Conference has made it official, announcing the hiring of Stanford athletic director Bob Bowlsby as its new commissioner. The North Texas-based league announced the hire on Thursday, a few hours after Bowlsby broke the news to his staff and coaches at Stanford. He will take over from interim Commissioner Chuck Neinas on June 15th. The 60-year-old Bowlsby spent the past six years at Stanford, helping it rebuild its football program into a national power. He was hired away from Iowa in 2006, following 15 years running the Hawkeyes’ athletic department. Bowlsby will now take over a BCS conference that seems to have found some stability after losing four schools over the past two years. The league will head into this fall with 10 members, including new additions TCU and West Virginia.
