Mayberry has winning hit in 14th, Mets beat Cardinals 2-1


May 19th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

NEW YORK (AP) — Pinch-hitter John Mayberry Jr. had an RBI infield hit with one out in the bottom of the 14th inning, lifting the New York Mets to a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night after blowing another lead for Matt Harvey. Lucas Duda beat a shifted, drawn-in infield with an opposite field hit for a run-scoring single off John Lackey in the fourth, but Jason Heyward had a sacrifice fly in the ninth off closer Jeurys Familia as the Mets wasted another 1-0 lead for their ace.

The division leaders then struck out a combined 12 times in extras before Sam Tuivailala (0-1) walked Eric Campbell and Duda to open the 14th. Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal relived and got Michael Cuddyer to ground into a fielder’s choice. Rosenthal then walked intentionally Daniel Murphy to load the bases.

Mayberry, who entered batting .114, grounded the first pitch off diving drawn-in shortstop Jhonny Peralta’s glove.


Chiefs wrap up 3-day look at rookies in minicamp


May 19th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Mitch Morse would have been hard-pressed to find a better opportunity. Start with the fact that the rookie offensive lineman was drafted by the Chiefs, just down the road from where he played in college. Throw in the fact that he was picked well before most experts anticipated — and what that meant for his first contract.

Then consider this: The Chiefs watched their starting center sign with the Oakland Raiders in free agency, leaving a gaping void in the middle of their offensive line. Suddenly, the second-round draft pick could be counted on by a playoff contender.


Celebration of life Wednesday for Nebraska soccer assistant

News, Sports

May 19th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Celebration of Life service for Nebraska assistant soccer coach Peter Underwood will be held Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. The 31-year-old Underwood was killed in a car accident Saturday on Interstate 80 in western Iowa, while on a recruiting trip near Atlantic. He was a Nebraska assistant for four years, the last two as a full-time coach. People attending the celebration of life should enter the arena on the north side on the ground level. Parking is free.

Charges are currently pending against 49-year old Paul W. Marshall, of Modale, in connection with the crash. Marshall, who was driving a pickup the wrong way on Interstate 80 when he collided with Underwood’s car, was listed in fair condition Monday, at the Cass County Memorial Hospital, in Atlantic.
