Young, Granderson, Colon lead Mets over Cards 4-1


April 25th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

NEW YORK (AP) – Chris Young homered to start New York’s comeback and slumping Curtis Granderson singled in a run as a pinch hitter as Bartolo Colon and the Mets beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-1 Thursday to send Lance Lynn to his first career loss in April.

Colon allowed four hits in seven innings, struck out eight and walked none. Carlos Torres and Scott Rice split the eighth, and Daisuke Matsuzaka finished the four-hitter with a perfect ninth for his first save since 2000 with the Seibu Lions of Japan’s Pacific League.

New York took three of four from the defending NL champions and has won four of five overall.

Cards’ Wainwright says knee good for Sunday start


April 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

NEW YORK (AP) – St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright threw a bullpen session and said his right knee feels good enough to allow him to make his next scheduled start Sunday against Pittsburgh. He stretched his scoreless streak to 17 innings Tuesday but left a 3-0 win over the New York Mets after hyperextending his right knee while lunging for Chris Young’s flare between the mound and first base.

Wainwright said Thursday his knee was “a hair sore – on fully extension only.” “And when you look at the way I pitch, you barely do anything stiff-legged, so I’m going to be OK,” he said. Wainwright is 4-1 with a 1.46 ERA.

Jones returns to Drake for shuttle hurdle relay


April 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Lolo Jones has decided to run the Drake Relays after waffling on a return to her hometown meet a year ago. But rather than compete in the high-profile 100-meter hurdles, Jones will make her transition from the bobsled back to the blue oval in a much more relaxed event.

The two-time Olympic hurdler and 2014 Sochi Games bobsledder will take it relatively easy Friday night when she competes in the shuttle hurdle relay. The 105th Drake Relays kick off with a light schedule Thursday. Titles will be decided in the decathlon, heptathlon and 5,000 and 10,000.

Mets cut down tying run, hold off Cardinals 3-2


April 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

NEW YORK (AP) — Lucas Duda hit a long home run and the New York Mets threw out the potential tying run at the plate in the ninth inning to hold off the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 Wednesday night with a stiff wind whipping through Citi Field. Jonathon Niese earned his first win of the season, and shortstop Ruben Tejada cut down Matt Carpenter for the second out of the ninth on a strong relay from center fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis.

St. Louis manager Mike Matheny challenged the call, which was upheld following a replay review of 1 minute, 20 seconds that showed catcher Travis d’Arnaud nicked Carpenter with a sweep tag near his armpit. Cardinals right-hander Michael Wacha set career highs with 10 strikeouts and five walks in the shortest of his 14 regular-season starts in the majors. A bizarre outing if ever there was one — but it was that sort of night.

Chiefs to open season Sept. 7 vs Tennessee


April 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs will have to get used to playing away from Arrowhead Stadium. Kansas City opens the season at home against Tennessee on Sept. 7, and then has just one more home game over the first seven weeks — the Patriots visit on Sept. 29. Otherwise, the Chiefs will be taking trips to Denver, Miami, San Francisco and San Diego along with having a week off during the first half of the season. The NFL announced the schedules for all teams Wednesday night.

If the Chiefs can navigate their early road swing, they’ll have an opportunity to finish strong at home. They welcome cross-state rival St. Louis on Oct. 26, and play home games against Seattle, Denver and Oakland before wrapping the regular season against San Diego on Dec. 28.

Iowa’s offense looking to match strong defense


April 23rd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa’s defense was back among the nation’s elite last season. The Hawkeyes offense failed to follow suit. Getting both units to play at an equally high level will likely be crucial to Iowa’s hopes of competing for the inaugural Big Ten West title.

The Hawkeyes will be among the league favorites because it has a lot of returning starters and what appears to be a manageable schedule. But Iowa will need to score more than the 26.3 points it averaged a year ago, and quarterback Jake Rudock says the unit’s continuity will be a big plus next season.

The Hawkeyes wrap up spring practice on Saturday with a scrimmage at Kinnick Stadium.

Restaurant sues ex-Cardinal Edmonds over name


April 23rd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – A Cincinnati restaurant owner is suing former Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds over the name of the Precinct, a restaurant he co-owns in downtown St. Louis. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Jeff Ruby filed a federal lawsuit against Edmonds’ business late last year. The suit alleges that Edmonds’ steakhouse infringes on the Ohio restaurant group’s trademark.

The St. Louis Precinct features police and sports memorabilia and is located next to the new city police headquarters building. The Precinct in Cincinnati opened in 1981 and occupies a former police patrol building. Edmonds played for the Cardinals from 2000 to 2007. He later played for the Cincinnati Reds before retiring from baseball in 2011.
