Cubs beat Cardinals in Extra Innings


April 12th, 2014 by Chris Parks

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Welington Castillo hit a three-run homer in the 11th inning off closer Trevor Rosenthal, who struck out with an unusual chance to win it, and the Chicago Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-3 on Friday night.

The Cardinals had runners on first and second with two outs in the 10th when manager Mike Matheny decided against a pinch hitter. Rosenthal (0-1) took a called third strike in his second career at-bat.

Nate Schierholtz doubled for his fourth straight hit leading off the 11th and advanced on a sacrifice. Starlin Castro was intentionally walked and Ryan Kalish popped out on a bunt attempt before Castillo lined a 1-1 fastball 426 feet to left for his second homer.

Justin Grimm (1-0) walked Matt Holliday and Matt Adams on eight pitches to start the 10th but got out of it, partly because Matheny left Pete Kozma and Tony Cruz on the bench. Hector Rondon finished for his first career save.

Iowa State Bumps Hoiberg’s Salary to $2.6 Million


April 11th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State has given coach Fred Hoiberg a $600,000 a year raise, bumping his annual salary to $2.6 million.  The Cyclones announced Hoiberg’s revised contract on Friday.   Hoiberg just finished his fourth and most successful season at Iowa State. He led the Cyclones to 28 wins, a Big 12 tournament title and the program’s first Sweet 16 appearance in 14 years.

Hoiberg, a former star with the Cyclones, agreed to a 10-year, $20 million contract in March of 2013. The $600,000 raise in annual compensation is the only change to that deal, which runs through 2023.

Coach Hobson says:  Finally a beautiful night for golf.  Pleased with our performance. It is hard to play with a competitive mindset when the outcome of the match is known before it starts due to a insufficient number of players for Creston. We talked about that before we started but you still don’t know how the girls will respond.   Brooke Fletcher had another outstanding night shooting a 2 over 35; Brooke Newell, Bailey Walter and McKenna DenBeste continue to bring there scores down. Erin Olsen is hitting some solid tee shots.

Score card to settle. Kyle Nelson also had a great round with even. Tough to do on an away course. I though Jake played well even though he had a little high score. He had some troubles with distances. Sam also had a good round. A little high but played better than last time here. Cooper and Zac played pretty well. Had a few water issues. Otherwise would have been much better. Proud of my boys for only losing by 5 strokes on an away course. I know we are going to battle all year with Creston.

Buddy Lazier to enter Indianapolis 500 in U of I sponsored car


April 11th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) – Buddy Lazier will return to the Indianapolis 500 this season in a car fielded by Lazier Partners Racing.  The announcement Thursday was expected after the family-organized team also entered Lazier last season, one month after forming the team. Lazier started 32nd last May, ran only 44 laps because of a fuel pressure issues, and retired with a 31st-place finish.

The 46-year-old Lazier will drive the No. 91 Chevrolet with sponsorship from the University of Iowa Stephen A. Wynn Institute for Vision Research. The research center specializes in cures for rare, inherited retinal diseases.

Jacqueline Lazier, the drivers’ 12-year-old daughter, was born with Aniridia, which is a complete or partial absence of the colored part of the iris. Jacqueline has lost vision in her right eye.

Tony La Russa awed by Baseball Hall of Fame


April 11th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) – Tony La Russa has toured the Baseball Hall of Fame, and says he’s “getting overwhelmed.”  La Russa, the third-winningest manager in major league history, took in the sights Thursday in preparation for his induction this summer.  The 69-year-old La Russa, who led Oakland to the 1989 World Series title and the St. Louis Cardinals to championships in 2006 and 2011, was unanimously elected in December by the Hall of Fame’s expansion-era committee along with former managerial colleagues Bobby Cox and Joe Torre.

They will be inducted July 27 along with pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine and slugger Frank Thomas, who were elected in January in their first time on the writers’ ballot.  La Russa calls the scenario perfect because Cox and Torre were contemporaries and are right behind him in wins.

Wacha following up on October rookie breakout


April 11th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Take it from the Cincinnati Reds: Michael Wacha’s breakout postseason was no fluke.  In his first two starts for the St. Louis Cardinals, the 6-foot-6 right-hander has stared down one of the National League’s top lineups. Just like last fall, he’s been impervious to pressure, too.

After the Reds mustered a single run in 12 2-3 frustrating innings against the 22-year-old Wacha, Jay Bruce said it was like facing a carbon copy of Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright, also lean and lanky and among the majors’ best pitchers for several years.

On the rare occasions you get a pitch to your liking, Bruce said, you’d better not miss.
