Cardinals Slugger Pujols Held Out Against Pirates

Sports

August 29th, 2011 by Jim Field

     ST. LOUIS (AP) – St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols was held out of the starting lineup Sunday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Manager Tony La Russa said he felt Pujols needed a day off.   The Cardinals are off Monday, giving Pujols a two-day break.  The three-time NL MVP has been a healthy scratch twice this season, the last on July 20 against the New York Mets.  Lance Berkman made his 16th start at first on Sunday.  Pujols, who has started 113 games at first this season, missed 13 games with a fractured wrist from June 20-July 4.

Chiefs Trying to Find Offense Before Regular Season

     KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Todd Haley has complete confidence the Kansas City Chiefs can figure out a way to get their offense going in the right direction.  Even if they  manage to score once in a while going the wrong way.  The Chiefs’ high-profile starters struggled in their third consecutive preseason defeat Friday night, this time to the St.
Louis Rams. The first team’s only scoring drive came after an interception set up prime field position, and it went one yard backward before Ryan Succop kicked a short field goal.  With one preseason game left, time is running out to get things straightened out.

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Kyle Lohse went a workmanlike five innings for his 100th career win and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Lohse (12-8) gave up four runs, two of them earned. He allowed six hits, struck out four and walked two.  Lohse also put the Cardinals ahead to stay, getting an infield single in the fourth and scoring on Allen Craig’s sacrifice fly for a 5-4 lead.  Pittsburgh has lost four of its last six. The Pirates fell a season-high 18 games behind NL Central-leading Milwaukee.  Lohse became the 36th active pitcher to reach the 100-win mark.  He has 106 losses in his nine-year career.  Jason Motte picked up his first save of the season with a perfect ninth.  Jeff Karstens (9-8) gave up five earned runs in 3 2-3 innings.

Hyde Remains at Safety on Iowa Depth chart

Sports

August 26th, 2011 by Jim Field

     IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa junior Micah Hyde will start the season as a safety, according to the latest depth chart for the Sept. 3 opener against Tennessee Tech.  Hyde, who played his first two seasons at cornerback, will start at free safety with Collin Sleeper listed at strong safety.  Greg Castillo has earned a starting nod at cornerback in place of Hyde, and sophomore Christian Kirksey is starting at linebacker.  The Hawkeyes will need another week of practice to sort out whether Thomas Nardo or Dominic Alvis will start alongside Mike Daniels at defensive tackle.  Quarterback A.J. Derby and John Wienke are listed as co-backups to James Vandenberg.  The Hawkeyes haven’t disclosed who’ll be returning kicks against the Golden Eagles.
