Gaudin gets win in first start in 3 years


June 2nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Chad Gaudin picked up a win in his first start in over three years and Brandon Belt broke a tie with a two-run pinch-hit double to lead San Francisco to a 4-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, ending the Giants’ seven-game road skid.  Gaudin (1-1) went six innings in his first start since Sept. 28, 2009 as a member of the New York Yankees. He allowed four hits and two runs, both coming on a two-run homer by David Freese in the fourth. Gaudin is temporarily replacing Ryan Vogelsong in the rotation. Vogelsong broke several bones in his right hand May 20.
Belt slammed the first pitch from reliever Randy Choate into the gap in left-center to bring in Brandon Crawford and Gregor Blanco for a 4-2 lead in the seventh inning. Crawford began the rally with a single off St. Louis rookie Tyler Lyons (2-1).

June 1st, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Duffy Waldorf shot a 5-under 67 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead after the second round of the Champions Tour’s Principal Charity Classic. Waldorf had an 8-under 136 total. Bart Bryant and Jay Don Blake were tied for second. Bryant had a 64, and Blake shot a 66. Russ Cochran was 6 under after a 67.

The 50-year-old Waldorf is winless in 12 career starts on the 50-and-over tour after winning four times on the PGA Tour. He took advantage of calm conditions at the Wakonda Club to post a bogey-free round after opening with a 69 for a share of the first-round lead.

Jay Haas, a three-time winner in the event, was 3 under after a 70. Points leader Bernhard Langer shot a 75 to drop 11 strokes back.

June 1st, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — The Cubs placed right-handed reliever Rafael Dolis on the disabled list because of a strained right forearm, and brought up right-handed reliever Blake Parker from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday. Dolis pitched five scoreless innings in five relief appearances in three stints with Chicago.

Parker is 0-1 with seven saves and a 2.04 ERA in 16 relief appearances this season with Iowa. He was available for the Cubs’ game Saturday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks. To make room for Parker on the 40-man roster, right-handed reliever Alex Burnett was designated for assignment. Burnett, claimed off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles on Monday, pitched a scoreless inning for the Cubs on Wednesday before being optioned to Iowa on Thursday.

Marshall G Kane joins Iowa State


May 31st, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State announced Friday that former Marshall guard DeAndre Kane will play for the Cyclones next season. Kane, who averaged 15.1 points and ranked 11th nationally with seven assists per game last season, has one year of eligibility left. Kane figures to challenge for the starting job at point guard for Iowa State, which lost four perimeter players from last year’s NCAA tournament team. Kane scored nearly 1,500 points in three seasons at Marshall.

Coach Fred Hoiberg says Kane will add “great versatility” to the Cyclones, while Kane says Iowa State’s up-tempo style was a major draw.

4 tied for lead at Champions Tour in Iowa


May 31st, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Tom Lehman, Duffy Waldorf, Dan Forsman and Scott Hoch shot 3-under 69 on Friday to share the first-round lead in the Champions Tour’s Principal Charity Classic. Hale Irwin, who turns 68 on Monday, topped a group of eight at 70. Defending champion Jay Haas opened with a 71, and tour points leader Bernhard Langer had a 72.

This event is in its first year at Wakonda Club. The tournament was held at Glen Oaks Country Club in neighboring West Des Moines 11 of the last 12 years. The switch led to much higher scores than usual. The first-round leading score was the highest ever in Iowa — and every player had at least one bogey.
