Lake homers, drives in 6, Cubs rout Cardinals 17-5


May 13th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Junior Lake homered, doubled twice and drove in six runs as the Chicago Cubs broke loose, routing St. Louis 17-5 Monday night and forcing the Cardinals to finish with infielder Daniel Descalso as a relief pitcher. The Cubs had totaled just four runs while getting swept in a three-game series at Atlanta over the weekend, and had lost seven of eight overall. Chicago has the worst record in the league at 13-24, but is 4-3 against the defending NL champions.

The Cubs hit for the cycle in the first five batters — Emilio Bonifacio doubled, Anthony Rizzo singled, Starlin Castro tripled and Mike Olt’s two-run homer capped a four-run first inning. Bonifacio had four of Chicago’s 20 hits and scored five runs, once on a play overturned by video review.

Descalso made his first pro pitching appearance and retired the only batter he faced, getting Olt on a fly ball.

Chiefs pick med student in sixth round of draft


May 13th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — There are few players in the NFL draft who have a better fallback plan than Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, the offensive tackle taken by the Kansas City Chiefs in the sixth round. After all, he only needs one more year of medical school before he becomes Doc Larry.

The 23-year-old Canadian from McGill University is planning to put those career aspirations on hold to play football for the Chiefs. He was supposed to fly to Kansas City this week and immerse himself in an orientation program, with a rookie minicamp beginning May 24.

Duvernay-Tardif first turned heads at the East-West Shrine Game, and then impressed the Chiefs enough at a personal pro day that they drafted him on Saturday.

Cardinals hold on to beat Pirates 6-5


May 11th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Shelby Miller won his fourth straight start and Trevor Rosenthal induced a bases-loaded double play to end the game as the St. Louis Cardinals held off the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-5 on Sunday night. Allen Craig and Yadier Molina had two hits each, including RBI singles in a four-run first inning. Craig went 5-for-11 in the three-game series after entering with a .202 batting average. Molina was 0-for-12 in his previous four games.

Miller (5-2) walked four and allowed four hits in 5 1-3 innings, but held the Pirates to just two runs – which came on Jordy Mercer’s first home run of the season in the fourth inning. Rosenthal gave up a run in the ninth that made it 5-4, but got Mercer to hit into a 1-2-3 double play to end it.

Charlie Morton (0-5) took the loss.

Alvarez’s single lifts Pirates over Cardinals 4-3


May 11th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pedro Alvarez singled in the go-ahead run and the Pittsburgh Pirates won their season-high fourth consecutive game Saturday night, 4-3 over the St. Louis Cardinals. Alvarez’s hit capped a four-run fourth inning against Lance Lynn (4-2) that helped the Pirates wipe out a 3-0 deficit.

Josh Harrison and Ike Davis each had two hits for the Pirates, who have won 11 of their last 14 games against the Cardinals in Pittsburgh. Harrison also hit an RBI single in the fourth. Jared Hughes (2-0) retired all four batters he faced in relief of starter Edinson Volquez. Mark Melancon earned his fourth save with a scoreless ninth.

Pirates outfielder Starling Marte was lifted for a pinch-hitter because of tightness in his lower back.

Jets draft ISU LB George


May 10th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets loaded up on wide receivers on the final day of the NFL draft, taking Oklahoma’s Jalen Saunders, UCLA’s Shaquelle Evans and Nebraska’s Quincy Enunwa. Among the Jets’ other selections were Furman offensive lineman Dakota Dozier, Iowa State linebacker Jeremiah George, Northwest Missouri State cornerback Brandon Dixon, Louisiana Tech defensive end IK Enemkpali and Utah linebacker Trevor Reilly.

They also added another quarterback to the mix Saturday, selecting Clemson’s Tajh Boyd with the last of their three compensatory picks in the sixth round. While Geno Smith and Michael Vick will compete for the starting job this summer, Boyd will likely go up against Matt Simms for the No. 3 spot.

New York entered the final day with a league-high nine picks and used them all.
