Cardinals beat Marlins 5-4 on Stanton error


July 6th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Jon Jay scored from first on right fielder Giancarlo Stanton’s throwing error on Shane Robinson’s single with two outs in the ninth inning, giving the St. Louis Cardinals a 5-4 victory over the Florida Marlins on Saturday.  Edward Mujica (1-1) worked a scoreless ninth for the Cardinals after Matt Adams’ pinch-hit two-run homer tied it two innings earlier.

Jay drew a full-count walk off A.J. Ramos (3-3) with two outs in the ninth and had third easily on Robinson’s pinch-hit single, then scored without a play after Stanton hesitated before throwing a relay that skipped under Morrison’s glove at first base.

The Marlins got homers from Derek Dietrich and Logan Morrison but their run of four straight series wins ended after dropping the first two against the Cardinals.

Westbrook strong, Cardinals beat Marlins 4-1


July 6th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jake Westbrook worked seven strong innings and Allen Craig had two RBIs for a lineup that spoiled Jacob Turner’s homecoming early on in the St. Louis Cardinals’ 4-1 victory over the Miami Marlins on Friday night. Matt Holliday doubled twice with an RBI and Edward Mujica rebounded with the save for the Cardinals, who had lost eight of 11 and plummeted from the majors’ best record to second place in the NL Central entering a five-game home stand.

The Marlins totaled three hits and lost for just the third time in 11 games. The hard-throwing Turner (2-1) surrendered four runs on seven hits in six innings. Westbrook (5-3) was hurt only by Logan Morrison’s 440-foot homer to straightaway center leading off the second.

Lullabye Foundation names golf tournament after 2 Atlantic residents

News, Sports

July 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Officials with “The Lullabye Foundation” have announced that their 2013 Annual Golf Tournament has been named to honor the memories of two long-time Atlantic residents and community benefactors, James and Gertrude Hunt. The 4-person, “Texas Scramble/Best Ball” Tournament will be held on Saturday, July 20th, at the Atlantic Golf and Country Club.  Registration begins at 8:15am.  Play – with a shot-gun start – begins at 9:00am.  All players will receive a meal ticket for a picnic lunch, which will be available between 10:30-a.m. and Noon. 

Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams; those prizes being gift certificates for a foursome and two carts to Lake Panorama National in Panora, and Fox Run and Bent Tree Golf Courses in Council Bluffs.  There will be individual hole prizes on ten of the courses’ 18 holes.

All proceeds from Lullabye’s Jim and Gert Hunt Memorial Golf Tournament will be used to support the Lullabye Foundation’s mission of helping CassCounty children. Since 2007, nearly $65,000 has been given to deserving children to help them achieve a dream they might never experience without Lullabye’s intervention.

Lullabye’s Pastors Dennis and Sally Meyer, say their mission is one Jim and Gert Hunt’s family believes reflects the kind of care, concern, and personal mission their parents were committed to as they lived and served in the greater Cass County community for many years.  Gertrude was a teacher, and saw first-hand the needs of many kids and tried to address them as best she was able.  The Hunt’s were generous supporters of numerous programs that built stronger kids in the community, including the Lullabye Foundation.

Opportunities remain available to enter teams into the tournament and/or to step up to be hole sponsors for the event, or both.  Questions about the tournament can be directed to Mike or Pam Koranda at 243-2982, or at 2705 Palm Street in Atlantic.
