NLCS Game 3 delayed by rain in 7th, Cards lead 3-1


October 17th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Game 3 of the NL championship series is being delayed because of rain in the seventh inning with the St. Louis Cardinals leading San Francisco 3-1. The game at Busch Stadium was stopped with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. An announcement was posted on the scoreboard saying a severe weather warning had been issued by the National Weather Service. The Cardinals and Giants are tied at one game each. Matt Carpenter hit a two-run homer off Giants ace Matt Cain in the third inning. Carpenter came into the game after Cardinals star Carlos Beltran left after the first inning because of a strained left knee. This is the third game delayed by rain this postseason. Two games between the Yankees and Orioles in Baltimore were affected.

AP Interview: Pioli admits ‘I’ve made mistakes’


October 17th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli tells The Associated Press he is not concerned about his job status despite a 1-5 start by the team in his fourth season in charge. Pioli says he has made mistakes, though he refused to discuss any of them in detail He did say they encompass all facets of his job: player personnel, fan relationships and a failure to fully understand the role of the GM in Kansas City.

Pioli admitted that changes are necessary, though he said “getting into the specifics publicly is not in anybody’s best interest right now.” He did say that he remains confident in coach Romeo Crennel, who also serves as the team’s defensive coordinator. The Chiefs are off this week before playing Oakland on Oct. 28.

Chiefs offense a no-show the last 2 games


October 17th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The struggling offense of the Kansas City Chiefs has more than a quarterback controversy to work on this week. The Chiefs (1-5) have not scored a touchdown in the last eight quarters while losing 9-6 to Baltimore and getting blown out 38-10 at Tampa Bay. Here’s how bad it was for offensive coordinator Brian Daboll last week in Tampa: When the Chiefs had the ball, the Buccaneers outscored them 7-3. Trying to get the offense back on track is a big priority for the Chiefs during their bye week.

Ozzie Smith to auction Gold Gloves


October 17th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

LAUGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. (AP) — Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith is planning to auction his 13 Gold Gloves and a pair of World Series rings he received from the St. Louis Cardinals in retirement. SCP Auctions said Tuesday that bidding for the online sale will start Nov. 14 and end Dec. 1. SCP said Smith decided on the auction, which also includes 11 All-Star game rings, as part of estate and family planning.

In a separate sale, bidding began Tuesday at Goldin Auctions for Pete Rose’s copy of the 1990 agreement in which he agreed to a lifetime ban from baseball following an investigation of his gambling while manager of the Cincinnati Reds. Bidding runs through Nov. 17th.

Cardinals back home for NLCS Game 3 against Giants


October 17th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Kyle Lohse is all about efficiency, about avoiding extended at-bats and letting the hitters get themselves out. The St. Louis Cardinals are in a spot where they could really use that kind of game. The 16-game winner can pitch his team to the lead today (Wednesday), with the NL championship series against the San Francisco Giants tied 1-1.

St. Louis has gone three straight games without a starter getting an out in the fifth inning. Lohse gets a chance to end that troubling trend when he faces Matt Cain in a matchup of 16-game winners. The game carries more of the usual Game 3 buzz due to the uncertainty of Marco Scutaro’s availability after getting rammed by Matt Holliday while busting up a double play on Monday night. A person with knowledge of the injury told the Associated Press that Scutaro strained his left hip.

No fines for OT parking for Game 3


October 17th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The National League Championship Series is coming to St. Louis for the seventh time since 2000, and the city is clearing some parking space. The Cardinals and Giants split the first two games in San Francisco. The next three games are in St. Louis Wednesday through Friday. If necessary, the final two games would be back in California. Today’s (Wednesday’s) game is scheduled to start shortly after 3 p.m. Central time. City Treasurer Larry Williams says overtime parking violations will not be enforced at meters in parts of downtown near Busch Stadium — specifically in the area bounded by Tucker, Chouteau, Locust and the Mississippi River. All other regulations will be enforced.

It’s back to work for surging Penn State


October 16th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Bill O’Brien allowed himself to relax a little for his first weekend without a football game in nearly two months — but only briefly. After taking his wife out for a nice dinner, it was back to the work early the next day for Penn State’s coach. Following an off week, the Nittany Lions want to keep the momentum of a four-game winning streak rolling into this weekend’s tough trip to Iowa. Both teams enter this weekend’s tilt with identical records (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten). A win Saturday for Penn State, coupled with a victory by No. 7 Ohio State over Purdue, would set up a high-stakes showdown on Oct. 27 for first place in the Leaders Division. But the Nittany Lions vow they’re only concentrating on Iowa.
