Braves snap 7-game skid, beat Cardinals 2-1

Sports

May 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ATLANTA (AP) — Justin Upton homered and scored the tiebreaking run on Chris Johnson’s eighth-inning single, and the Atlanta Braves beat the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 on Tuesday night to end their seven-game skid. Braves right-hander Gavin Floyd was impressive in his season debut, allowing one run on six hits in seven innings.

Floyd made his first major league start since April 27, 2013, for the White Sox against Tampa Bay. He had season-ending Tommy John surgery 10 days later, and his comeback included six minor league rehab starts this year. David Carpenter had two strikeouts in a perfect eighth. Craig Kimbrel had two strikeouts in a perfect ninth for his ninth save.

St. Louis left-hander Tyler Lyons allowed only one run on four hits, including Upton’s homer, in six innings.

Chiefs could be in market to trade draft picks

Sports

May 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs general manager John Dorsey would love to hear his phone ringing on draft night. One year after picking first overall, Kansas City will be waiting until No. 23 to make its first selection this year. It’s also the only selection the franchise has in the first 86 picks, which is why Dorsey made it clear he’s entertaining offers to move down and acquire more.

If that doesn’t happen, expect Kansas City to address one of its most glaring holes, wide receiver. The Chiefs have struggled to find a playmaker to stretch the field, and with that position arguably the deepest in the draft, it’s a good bet that’s where they’ll go.

Oregon State’s Brandin Cooks and LSU’s Odell Beckham Jr. are two possibilities.

Cards LHP Garcia doing better after hit on elbow

Sports

May 6th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ATLANTA (AP) – St. Louis Cardinals left-hander Jaime Garcia does not appear seriously injured after being struck on the elbow by a pitch during a rehab start in the minors. General manager John Mozeliak said Monday that Garcia had some significant swelling right after the game, but it had “gone down quite a bit” by morning.

Garcia has been on the DL all season with an injured shoulder. He was hit on the left elbow while batting Sunday with Double-A Springfield, forcing him out of the game after two innings and 28 pitches. Speaking before the Cardinals played in Atlanta, Mozeliak said Garcia may just need a few days off. The team is hoping he can pitch again by next Sunday or Monday.

Cardinals hand slumping Braves 7th straight loss

Sports

May 6th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ATLANTA (AP) — Matt Carpenter’s two-run double in the fifth inning helped carry the St. Louis Cardinals past the slumping Atlanta Braves, who shook up their lineup but still lost their seventh in a row, 4-3 Monday night. Desperate for more offense, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez batted pitcher Aaron Harang eighth and put second baseman Ramiro Pena in the ninth spot.

Pena had two hits, including a seventh-inning homer that brought the Braves within a run, but they couldn’t overcome a 4-0 deficit. Taking advantage of shaky defense, Carpenter doubled in two runs and Matt Holiday followed with a run-scoring single. Peter Bourjos had an RBI single in the sixth to extend St. Louis’ lead.

Shelby Miller (4-2) got the win and Trevor Rosenthal earned his ninth save. Harang (3-3) took the loss.
