Jay Leaves Cardinals for Personal Matter

Sports

September 25th, 2014 by Jim Field

CHICAGO (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Jon Jay left the team due to a personal matter and missed Wednesday’s series finale with the Chicago Cubs, according to Cardinals manager Mike Matheny.

Jay is expected to rejoin the team Friday in Arizona when the Cardinals face the Diamondbacks. The Cardinals do not play Thursday.

Jay, who had an RBI in Tuesday’s loss to the Cubs, is batting .302 with 52 runs in 138 games this season.

The Cardinals currently lead the Pittsburgh Pirates by 1 1-2 games in the NL Central.

Peter Bourjos started in centerfield in Jay’s absence.

Arrieta Outpitches Lackey as Cubs Beat Cards, 3-1

September 25th, 2014 by Jim Field

CHICAGO (AP) — Jake Arrieta pitched seven strong innings to outduel St. Louis’ John Lackey and lead the Chicago Cubs to a 3-1 victory over the Cardinals on Wednesday night.

Arrieta, coming off a one-hit shutout against Cincinnati last week, limited St. Louis to two hits and an unearned run while striking out 10. He also had a two-run triple in the fourth inning.

The Cardinals, who clinched a playoff berth earlier in the week, remained 1 1/2 games ahead of Pittsburgh in the NL Central. The Pirates lost at Atlanta, reducing St. Louis’ magic number to three for clinching the division title.

The Cardinals’ loss assured NL East champion Washington will open a division series at home.

Lackey gave up two runs and five hits in 6 2-3 innings. He struck out eight, his most since joining the Cardinals at the trade deadline.

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

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.
