April 26th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – College football season is still more than four months away, but Barack Obama is drawing applause just for mentioning Iowa’s opening game. During his stop in Iowa City on Wednesday, Obama told University of Iowa students he’s glad the Hawkeyes open play at Soldier Field in his hometown of Chicago against Northern Illinois on Sept. 1.  Obama says Iowa has shown him great hospitality during his political career, and he hopes Chicago returns the favor to Iowa players and thousands of fans who are expected to attend. Iowa rarely plays at neutral sites. Obama made the remark at the beginning of his 30-minute speech at the Field House.

April 25th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — David Freese homered and Lance Lynn threw eight strong innings to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-1 win over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday afternoon. Lynn (4-0) held Chicago to six hits in becoming the first four-game winner in the majors and helping the Cardinals avoid a three-game sweep. Freese’s two-run blast in the sixth capped a three-run, two-out rally against starter Chris Volstad. Freese added an RBI double in the eighth. Volstad (0-3) threw six solid innings, retiring St. Louis in order during four of them. But he’s still 0-8 in 15 starts since July 10, 2011. Bryan LaHair homered to lead off the fourth for Chicago’s only run. LaHair has four of Chicago’s majors-lowest seven home runs this season.

Manning Drama in Past, Cassel Focuses on Future

Sports

April 25th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Matt Cassel doesn’t believe that the Kansas City Chiefs went behind his back when they pursued Peyton Manning during the offseason. In fact, he appreciates them being open with him. The veteran quarterback was quick to acknowledge that Manning is one of the best to ever play the game. Manning ultimately ended up with AFC West rival Denver, where he’ll play the Chiefs twice a year in the regular season. And that means Cassel is back in control of the Chiefs, a position that he never really lost. General manager Scott Pioli said he’s confident that Cassel can lead the Chiefs back to the playoffs. That’s what he did two years ago, before a tough 2011 season cut short by injuries.

Soriano Lifts Cubs Past Cardinals 3-2

Sports

April 25th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Alfonso Soriano hit a game-ending RBI single in the 10th inning and the Chicago Cubs beat St. Louis 3-2 on Tuesday night, ending the Cardinals’ run of 13 consecutive winning series. Tony Campana sparked the winning rally with a one-out single off Fernando Salas (0-1). Campana then stole second in a close call that led to the first ejection for Cardinals manager Mike Matheny. After Starlin Castro struck out, Bryan LaHair was walked intentionally before Soriano hit a full-count pitch off second baseman Tyler Greene and into the outfield. Campana scored easily to give the Cubs their second consecutive dramatic victory against the Cardinals.  James Russell (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning to get the win.
