Castillo’s HR in 10th lifts Cubs over Cards 4-3

Sports

September 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Welington Castillo homered and drove in the winning run with a 10th-inning single, giving the Chicago Cubs a 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals that tightened the NL Central race Tuesday night. St. Louis’ lead was reduced to 1 1/2 games over second-place Pittsburgh, which clinched a playoff berth by beating Atlanta. With four games to play, the Cardinals, who secured a postseason spot last weekend, still have a magic number of four to wrap up their second consecutive division crown.

Castillo finished 2 for 5 with three RBIs. Zac Rosscup (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning for his first major league win. Pat Neshek (7-2) took the loss.

Iowa’s starting quarterback job in flux

Sports

September 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says quarterback C.J. Beathard will open this week’s practices as the starter ahead of Saturday’s Big Ten opener at Purdue. But that’s only because junior Jake Rudock is “day-to-day” because of a leg injury.

Beathard, a sophomore, finally got his shot at extended playing time last weekend. He gave the struggling Hawkeyes (3-1) a major boost in leading them back from 10 points down to beat Pittsburgh, 24-20. Beathard was 7 of 8 passing for 98 yards in relief of Rudock.

Purdue looks for confidence vs Iowa

Sports

September 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue is making progress. The Boilermakers already have won twice – one more than in 2013 – and have beaten an FBS school, something they did not achieve during coach Darrell Hazell’s first season as head coach. When Iowa (3-1) comes to West Lafayette on Saturday, Purdue has a big chance to win its first Big Ten game in the Hazell era and to achieve that milestone on homecoming.

Hazell made no attempt to downplay this game’s significance on Tuesday. Since a 38-17 loss on Sept. 6 to Central Michigan, Purdue (2-2) has played well in a 30-14 loss to unbeaten Notre Dame and then scored the game’s first 25 points Saturday in a 35-13 victory against previously unbeaten Southern Illinois.

Alex Smith leads Chiefs past Dolphins 34-15

Sports

September 21st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Alex Smith shook off five sacks to throw three touchdown passes and help the Kansas City Chiefs earn their first victory by beating the Miami Dolphins 34-15 on Sunday. Smith led touchdown drives of 62, 76 and 66 yards in a span of four possessions as Kansas City took leads of 14-0 and 21-10. The Chiefs improved to 1-2 and won for only the third time in their past 11 games, including postseason.

The Dolphins fell to 1-2, another wobbly start for a team that hasn’t won a postseason game since 2000. Smith, who ranked 35th and last in the NFL in passing after two weeks, went 19 for 25 for 186 yards, with three of his incompletions dropped. He threw scoring passes of 11 and 4 yards to Joe McKnight, and 20 yards to Travis Kelce.
