Hamilton steals base, Reds beat Cardinals 1-0

CINCINNATI (AP) – Speedy Billy Hamilton got his first major league steal Tuesday night and came around on Todd Frazier’s double in the seventh inning, sending the Cincinnati Reds to a 1-0 victory, their second straight over the St. Louis Cardinals.  Hamilton set a professional record by swiping 155 bases in the minors last year. He got an ovation when he made his big league debut as a pinch runner for Ryan Ludwick, who led off the seventh with a single against Seth Maness (5-2).

After Maness threw to first three times, Hamilton took off and beat catcher Yadier Molina’s off-target throw. He scored easily on Frazier’s hit and got congratulatory slaps in the dugout.

Tony Stewart calls injury a small bump in the road

September 3rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (AP) — An upbeat Tony Stewart says he views his broken right leg as “a small bump in the road” and believes he’s on pace to return to racing in time for next year’s Daytona 500. The three-time NASCAR champion made his first appearance Tuesday since his Aug. 5 injury in a sprint car crash in Iowa. He underwent two surgeries on a broken tibia and fibula and has been homebound for almost a month.

Stewart used a wheelchair to get around Stewart-Haas Racing before sliding into a chair on the stage for his news conference. It’s the first significant injury for the 42-year-old owner/driver of SHR, who saw his streak of 521 consecutive starts come to an end with the injury.

Chiefs place Commings on IR, sign McDougald

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs placed rookie safety Sanders Commings on injured reserve and signed Bradley McDougald to replace him on the roster heading into Sunday’s season opener at Jacksonville. Commings missed nearly all of training camp after breaking his left collarbone. The fifth-round pick from Georgia was put on IR with a designation to return, meaning he could return to the active roster at any time during the season.

McDougald made it through final cuts as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas, only to be waived Sunday when the Chiefs claimed seven other players off waivers. The Chiefs also signed offensive guard Rishawn Johnson to the practice squad Tuesday. He takes the place of Rokevious Watkins, who is serving a one-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.

Iowa shows progress despite loss in opener

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa lost again last weekend to MAC school Northern Illinois— its seventh straight dating back to 2012 and first in an opener in 13 years. But don’t mistake a loss for lost confidence. The Hawkeyes (0-1) showed signs that the misery of last season could eventually be a thing of the past, even in defeat.

New starting quarterback Jake Rudock played well. The running game showed signs of progress and Iowa’s defense appears to be in decent shape heading into Saturday’s game with FCS school Missouri State. Coach Kirk Ferentz says he saw a lot of “good things,” from both the offense and defense.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Authorities say a woman trying to get onto the field before the University of Iowa’s opening season football game had a blood alcohol content that was more than four times the legal limit to drive.  The university’s Department of Public Safety says 22-year-old Samantha Lynne Goudie, of Iowa City, tried to enter the playing field about an hour before the game against Northern Illinois University on Saturday. She was taken to the prisoner staging area at Kinnick Stadium.

Campus police say Goudie was unsteady on her feet and a preliminary breath test showed her blood-alcohol level was .341.  Goudie was charged with public intoxication. More than a dozen people were arrested during campus police’s game-day operations.
