Group of Chiefs fans hopes to break noise record

Sports

July 26th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A group of Kansas City Chiefs fans is organizing an effort to break the world record for the loudest roar at a sports stadium sometime in the upcoming NFL season.  The group calls itself “Terrorhead Returns” and says Guinness Book of World Records officials have given final approval for the record attempt, though no date has been set.

Organizers say the effort is an attempt to unify the local fan base and revive Arrowhead Stadium’s reputation as one of the loudest venues in the NFL. The effort follows a dismal season in which the Chiefs finished 2-14, dealt with the suicide of linebacker Jovan Belcher outside the stadium and saw the firings of head coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli.

Chiefs report to camp with high expectations

July 26th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — Eric Berry didn’t even allow a question about last season to be asked before cutting off the inquiring mind. There’s no way he was going to relive that nightmare. Instead, the Pro Bowl safety spoke optimistically about what the Kansas City Chiefs can accomplish this season under a new head coach. Berry thinks the pieces are in place for a quick turnaround from a 2-14 record a year ago to a team with playoff aspirations.

Berry was among the veteran players who checked into training camp Thursday on the campus of Missouri Western State University. They joined rookies, quarterbacks and selected veterans who were able to get a head start over the past few days. The Chiefs’ first full-squad workout is today (Friday).

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Lance Lynn allowed one run over seven innings and the St. Louis Cardinals scored three times in the third in a 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday. Matt Carpenter, Jon Jay and Matt Adams drove in runs for the Cardinals, who have won seven of nine. Philadelphia has lost five in a row, tying a season high. The Phillies also dropped five straight from June 7-12.

St. Louis has the most wins in the majors at 62 and is a season-high 25 games over .500. Lynn (12-5) had dropped four of his previous five decisions and was 3-4 with a 6.32 ERA in his past eight starts.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals recalled Marc Rzepczynski from Triple-A Memphis on Thursday, giving them three left-handed relievers. Rookie right-hander Carlos Martinez was optioned to Memphis.

The 27-year-old Rzepczynski was demoted to the minors April 29 and was 1-2 with a 3.07 ERA at Memphis while limiting left-handed hitters to a .185 batting average. Rzepczynski appeared in 70 games with St. Louis last season.

The 21-year-old Martinez was the organization’s minor league pitcher of the month in June and is among their top prospects for a future rotation spot. He has a 5.56 ERA in 10 games covering 11 1-3 innings with St. Louis.

Iowa hires N. Illinois official for athletic post

Sports

July 25th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The University of Iowa has hired a Northern Illinois University administrator to oversee academic services for athletes. Athletic director Gary Barta named Lisa Tovar an associate athletics director Wednesday. Tovar worked in a similar job at Northern Illinois for two years after previously working as an athletic academic counselor at Ohio State.

Her hiring comes under a reorganization in which the athletics department has created separate units to oversee compliance and academic services. Previously, department official Fred Mims oversaw both functions but Mims was reassigned last year amid questions about the school’s handling of sexual harassment allegations against a counselor.

Barta says he’s impressed by Tovar’s passion for helping student-athletes and working with coaches. Last week, Barta named Arizona State administrator Lyla Clerry to oversee compliance with NCAA regulations.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jake Westbrook pitched seven solid innings and contributed offensively with his second career steal, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to an 11-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night. Matt Adams had two hits and three RBIs and Shane Robinson’s three-run triple in the fifth was his third hit of the game for the Cardinals, who are 4-1 since the All-Star break and lead the majors with a 61-37 record.

Allen Craig had two hits and a walk to give him 16 hits during a nine-game hitting streak. He’s second in the league in hitting at .337 behind teammate Yadier Molina, who had three hits and an RBI and is batting .339. Westbrook (7-4) had his first career three-hit game and helped knock out John Lannan (2-4) when he drew a two-out walk in the fourth, stole second and scored on Carpenter’s single for a 4-0 lead.
