Morris Leads Veteran Linebackers at Iowa.


August 20th, 2013 by Jim Field

A veteran linebacker corps will try to help the Iowa football program return to its winning ways this season. James Morris, Christian Kirksey and Anthony Hitchens all enter their senior season but Morris says as a group the linebackers don’t rank very highly, yet.

All three of the linebackers saw the field as true freshmen.

Morris believes the Hawkeyes will be an improved team this season and he hopes the won-loss record reflects it.

The Hawkeyes open the season August 31st against Northern Illinois.

You can hear Iowa Hawkeye Football all season long on KJAN AM 1220 & FM 101.1.

Stewart to Miss Rest of the NASCAR Season


August 20th, 2013 by Jim Field

UNDATED (AP) — The 2013 Sprint Cup season is over for Tony Stewart. The three-time Cup champion will miss the rest of the season because of broken bones in his right leg.

He will be replaced in the Stewart-Hass No. 14 car by Austin Dillon and Mark Martin. Stewart is expected to return in time for preseason testing in January 2014.

Stewart broke his right leg in a sprint car crash Aug. 5 in Iowa.

Carpenter’s Single Helps Cards Rally over Brewers


August 20th, 2013 by Jim Field

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Matt Carpenter hit an RBI single with two outs in the eighth inning, putting the St. Louis Cardinals ahead during a four-run rally Monday night in an 8-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Cardinals got seven of their 16 hits in the big inning, capped by David Freese’s two-run double. St. Louis won for the ninth time in 11 games.

Aramis Ramirez snapped a 1-for-18 skid since returning from the disabled list Aug. 13 with a two-run homer off Michael Wacha in the seventh to give the Brewers a 5-4 lead.

It didn’t last long. The Cardinals erupted in the eighth off reliever Brandon Kintzler.

Edward Mujica, who was unavailable during the weekend series at the Chicago Cubs because of a tired arm, pitched the ninth for his 32nd save in 34 chances.

Chiefs Trade Baldwin to 49ers in WR Swap


August 19th, 2013 by Jim Field

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have traded wide receiver Jon Baldwin to the San Francisco 49ers for wide receiver A.J. Jenkins in a swap of disappointing first-round picks.

Baldwin was the 26th overall pick of the Chiefs in 2011. He missed time his rookie season after getting hurt in a fight with a teammate, and has been prone to dropping passes. He has just 41 catches for 579 yards and two touchdowns in two seasons.

Jenkins was the 30th overall pick of the 49ers last year. He appeared in only three games as a rookie and did not make a catch, even though he was healthy all season.

It’s the second significant deal between the Chiefs and 49ers this year. Kansas City acquired quarterback Alex Smith from San Francisco for a pair of draft picks during the offseason.

Chiefs’ Charles says no hesitation about practice


August 19th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles returned to Chiefs practice with no hesitation Sunday despite a lingering right foot strain that caused soreness to travel halfway up his leg. Charles spoke to reporters before hitting the practice field for the first time since last Monday, when he stepped on a teammate during the workout. He missed last Friday night’s preseason game against San Francisco and his status for next weekend’s game at Pittsburgh is undecided. Rookie running back Knile Davis worked out with the first team while Charles was out.

Charles said it was the first time he’d had this type of foot strain, calling the injury “weird” and that “it was definitely scary” because it affected the way he runs. When asked whether there was any hesitation about practicing Sunday, Charles said, “Oh no.” The Chiefs are not scheduled to practice Monday.

Wainwright, Jay lead Cardinals past Cubs 6-1


August 18th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright struck out 11 and allowed one run through seven innings, and Jon Jay drove in four runs with a homer and double to lead St. Louis to a 6-1 win over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. Matt Carpenter singled in two runs in the third to help back Wainwright (14-7), who was in command and allowed just five hits and one walk after going 0-2 in his previous four starts.

Junior Lake drove in the Cubs’ only run with a double in the sixth. Wainwright hadn’t won since July 21 at home against San Diego and had allowed 14 runs in 28 innings during the span. On Sunday, he faced only one batter over the minimum through the first five innings and only 26 through seven innings.

Chiefs learning life rough without Jamaal Charles


August 18th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Injured running back Jamaal Charles plans to return to Chiefs practice today (Sunday), though coach Andy Reid wouldn’t say how much he’ll participate or whether Charles will play in next weekend’s preseason game at Pittsburgh. Charles sat out Friday night’s 15-13 loss to the San Francisco after straining his right foot in practice earlier in the week. The Chiefs’ offense failed to score a touchdown in the game.

Charles worked out prior to kickoff, but Reid said he didn’t want to risk further injury by allowing him to play in the game. Instead, Charles spent most of the night helping rookie running back Knile Davis, who got most of the reps with the No. 1 offense.
