Wainwright injures knee, Cardinals blank Mets 3-0

Sports

April 23rd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

NEW YORK (AP) — Adam Wainwright threw seven neat innings before leaving with a knee injury, and Jon Jay hit a two-run single that sent the St. Louis Cardinals to a 3-0 victory over the New York Mets on Tuesday night.

Left fielder Matt Holliday robbed Chris Young of a tying homer, one night after the Mets played some dazzling defense of their own to post a shutout in the series opener.

Wainwright faced the minimum through four innings and outpitched Dillon Gee. It was the second consecutive scoreless start for Wainwright, who tossed a two-hit shutout last Thursday at Washington.

Panel clears tax rebate for Knoxville Raceway

Sports

April 22nd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A proposal to provide a state tax credit of up to $2 million to the Knoxville Raceway has advanced in the Iowa Senate. The plan received the approval of the Senate Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday and is now eligible for floor debate.

Under the proposal, the racetrack in Knoxville would receive a state sales tax rebate to help fund an expansion. The rebate would be capped at $2 million or 25 percent of the total project cost, and the track would be eligible to receive the rebate from Jan. 1, 2015, to Jan. 1, 2025.

The offer follows a similar credit provided for the Iowa Speedway at Newton, approved by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Terry Branstad earlier this month.

KC Chiefs football News

Sports

April 22nd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs are speaking with representatives of quarterback Alex Smith about an extension that would keep him in Kansas City beyond next season. Smith said Monday that his agent, Tom Condon, has been talking with the team about a new contract. Smith is due to make $7.5 million in the final year of a contract signed in 2012, when he was still with the San Francisco 49ers.

Chiefs general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid have both expressed their desire to keep Smith in Kansas City, but his play last season underscored his value. Smith completed 66 percent of his passes with a career-best 23 touchdowns and only seven interceptions while leading a team that had been 2-14 to an 11-5 record and the playoffs.

*******

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs have gathered for the start of offseason workouts, giving coach Andy Reid an opportunity to provide an update on issues ranging from injuries to potential starters. Reid said Monday that Eric Fisher, who will slide from right tackle to left tackle, had surgery on his left shoulder and to repair a sports hernia. Reid also said safety Sanders Commings had surgery for an undisclosed injury and has been cleared to work out.

The Chiefs will have to replace the tandem of Jon Asamoah and Geoff Schwartz at right guard and Kendrick Lewis at free safety. Reid said that Rishaw Johnson will get the first shot at the offensive line spot and that Husain Abdullah is the front-runner for the safety job.

Unger chosen as GM for Cards’ Triple-A affiliate

Sports

April 22nd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Craig Unger has been hired as general manager of the Memphis Redbirds as the St. Louis Cardinals take over daily management of their Triple-A affiliate. Unger joined the Cardinals organization in 2008. He helped return the team’s radio broadcasts to KMOX, served as field producer for the 2009 All-Star game at Busch Stadium and coordinated the 2011 World Series victory parade. Unger is moving permanently to the Memphis area, where he’s spent the past few months assisting in the ownership transition.

Unger said “this is a special moment in our team’s history, with the best days ahead of us,” in a statement Monday announcing his appointment. Ben Weiss, who had been the Redbirds’ general manager since 2009, is now a senior adviser assisting Unger in daily management of the team.

Mejia sharp, leads Wright, Mets over Cardinals 2-0

Sports

April 22nd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

NEW YORK (AP) — Jenrry Mejia pitched four-hit ball into the seventh inning, David Wright delivered another key hit and the New York Mets beat the St. Louis Cardinals 2-0 Monday night. Wright lined an early RBI single that extended his hitting streak to 12 games and Kyle Farnsworth earned his first save as the New York’s newest closer.

On an evening when the Mets debuted new camouflage tops to salute the military, they looked sharp. The Cardinals lost for the third time in four games. Mejia bounced back well from a torn blister on his right middle finger that limited him to five innings in his last start. The 24-year-old righty began the game by getting Matt Carpenter to look at three straight strikes, and rarely was in trouble.

Cardinals promote LHP Lyons, start him vs Mets

Sports

April 22nd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

NEW YORK (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have promoted left-hander Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis and are starting him against the New York Mets. The 26-year-old Lyons was set to pitch Monday night at Citi Field. Right-handed reliever Jorge Rondon was optioned to Triple-A. Lyons will take the rotation spot held by Joe Kelly, who was put on the 15-disabled list last week. Kelly strained his left hamstring trying to beat out a bunt.

Lyons went 2-4 with a 4.75 ERA in 12 games for St. Louis last year, including eight starts for the NL champions. He made his major league debut last season and was with the Cardinals during four separate stints. He was 2-0 with a 3.32 ERA in three starts at Memphis this year. He last pitched on Wednesday.
