August 29th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Tyler Bray threw for 169 yards and three touchdowns, and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Green Bay Packers 30-8 on Thursday night in a preseason finale nearly devoid of starters. Bray, an undrafted rookie out of Tennessee, outshined Chiefs backup Chase Daniel while giving starter Alex Smith the night off. Bray hit Junior Hemingway late in the first half for a touchdown, and then connected with Josh Bellamy and Frankie Hammond Jr. for TDs in the second half.

Vince Young had a rough game for the Packers in place of Aaron Rodgers, who likewise sat the game out. Young was just 13 of 29 for 121 yards and fumbled twice, losing one of them. B.J. Coleman was 2 of 7 for 19 yards on the few series he played for Green Bay.

Bruce leads Reds’ 10-0 rout over Cardinals


August 29th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jay Bruce homered and had five RBIs and the Cincinnati Reds got a dominant effort from Homer Bailey to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 10-0 on Wednesday night and avoid a three-game sweep. The Reds came out swinging a few hours after Brandon Phillips’ expletive-filled tirade at a Cincinnati Enquirer reporter sparked by scrutiny of his .310 on-base percentage, and after manager Dusty Baker criticized his team for falling short while dropping four of five.

The Cardinals lead the NL Central by a half-game over Pittsburgh after losing for the third time in 12 games, and the Reds are 3½ games back.

Bailey capped a six-run first against Adam Wainwright with the Reds’ sixth hit and his first RBI of the season. He allowed five hits in 7 1-3 innings with seven strikeouts and is 4-0 in his past six starts.

Cardinals recall Blazek, option Martinez to minors


August 28th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals promoted a fresh arm from the minors for the second straight day, recalling rookie right-hander Michael Blazek from Triple-A Memphis and demoting rookie right-hander Carlos Martinez. The 24-year-old Blazek has appeared in 10 games with St. Louis with an 8.31 ERA in 8 2-3 innings before Wednesday night’s game against the Reds. He’s 1-2 with a 2.77 ERA and two saves in 19 games at Memphis.

The 21-year-old Martinez is one of the franchise’s top pitching prospects and earned his first career victory on Monday, working two innings of relief. The Cardinals sent rookie Tyler Lyons to Memphis on Tuesday, a day after lefty started against Cincinnati, and promoted right-handed reliever Fernando Salas.

Chiefs’ Dorsey gets chance to see Packers again


August 28th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Everything that John Dorsey has done to mold the Kansas City Chiefs since becoming their general manager in January has been influenced by a career spent with the Green Bay Packers. He’ll get a chance to catch up with old friends Thursday night.

Dorsey played for the Packers in the 1980s before rising up the scouting ranks, eventually becoming director of football operations. He was hired as the Chiefs’ GM in January. Now, Dorsey will be using a preseason game against the Packers to make some final roster evaluations ahead of Saturday’s deadline to reach the 53-player limit. The Packers likewise have several jobs still up for grabs ahead of their regular-season opener.
