Kent St. eliminates top-seeded Gators 5-4 at CWS


June 18th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Kent State scored four unearned runs and another on a wild pitch, then held off Florida’s comeback bid in the ninth to eliminate the top-seeded Gators from the College World Series with a 5-4 victory Monday. The Gators loaded the bases with one out in the ninth against shaky relievers Michael Clark and Josh Pierce. Pierce fought back from a 3-0 count to strike out Casey Turgeon when Turgeon couldn’t check his swing and got called out on an appeal to the third-base umpire. Justin Shafer flew out to right to end the game. The Gators, who reached the CWS finals last year, committed five errors in two games after coming to Omaha seventh in the nation in fielding. Florida’s Hudson Randall (9-3) left after the first inning because of heat-related symptoms. Ryan Bores (10-3) got the win for Kent State, making its first CWS appearance.

IndyCar to reduce downforce at Iowa Speedway


June 18th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — IndyCar will reduce downforce in the cars for the race at Iowa Speedway on Saturday night. The decision was announced Monday and will reduce downforce by about 9 percent. IndyCar vice president of technology Will Phillips says reducing the downforce makes the cars difficult to drive, and most of the drivers have been asking for that challenge. The drivers unanimously voted for less downforce two weeks ago at Texas to eliminate the pack racing that develops on high-banked ovals. Aside from the reduction of downforce and removal of the rear wicker, IndyCar will use the same short oval aerodynamic package it used last weekend at Milwaukee. IndyCar also said it will set the fields for Friday night’s qualifying heat races by lap times recorded in the second practice session.

Cardinals Fall to Royals 3-2


June 16th, 2012 by admin

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Mike Moustakas cut down Tyler Greene at the plate to end the game, capping a wild ninth inning and preserving the Kansas City Royals’ 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night.

Greene reached on a two-out infield hit for his third single of the game, stole second and advanced on catcher Bryan Pena’s wild throw. He tried to score on another off-line throw by second baseman Chris Getz, but third baseman Moustakas made a strong throw to nip Greene at home.

The crazy finish came after Yadier Molina eased up on what he believed was an infield hit to start the St. Louis ninth. The catcher belatedly sped up after Alcides Escobar’s diving stop, and the shortstop made a strong throw to first as Molina banged his helmet with his hands.
