Sports

December 2nd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Cardinals added more bullpen help, agreeing Tuesday to a $3.5 million, one-year contract with free agent Matt Belisle. The 34-year-old right-hander has made 70 or more relief appearances in four of the last five seasons and led the NL with 80 in 2012.

Belisle was 4-7 with a 4.87 ERA in 66 games for Colorado last season and has a 48-54 career record with a 4.41 ERA in 524 games. He joins Jordan Walden, a right-hander acquired by St. Louis from Atlanta last month. Belisle could earn $500,000 in performance bonuses: $150,000 each for 50 and 60 games, and $200,000 for 70.

St. Louis also hired Chris Correa as director of scouting and promoted Luis Morales to assistant director of international scouting. The 34-year-old Correa joined the franchise in 2009 and had been director of baseball development.

Sports

December 1st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Peyton Manning threw two touchdown passes, Connor Barth was perfect on five field-goal attempts and the Denver Broncos beat the Kansas City Chiefs 29-16 on Sunday night to remain alone in first place in the AFC West.

C.J. Anderson added 168 yards rushing and caught a 15-yard touchdown pass, and Demaryius Thomas also had a TD grab to help the Broncos (9-3) beat Kansas City for the sixth straight time. Alex Smith threw for 153 yards and two touchdowns for the Chiefs (7-5), the second of them to Jamaal Charles to make it 26-16 early in the fourth quarter. But Smith’s pass on the 2-point try fell incomplete, and the Broncos added another field goal to put the game away.

The victory kept Denver a game up on San Diego in the division race.
