Holliday’s slam caps Cardinals’ big 10th inning


June 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CINCINNATI (AP) — Matt Holliday’s grand slam capped a seven-run 10th inning to help the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Cincinnati Reds 11-4 on Sunday night. J.J. Hoover (0-5) walked Allen Craig to lead off the 10th. One out later, David Freese singled Craig to second, extending his career-best hitting streak to 19 games, tied with San Francisco’s Marco Scutaro for the longest in the National League this season.

Daniel Descalso followed with his RBI double off the left field wall. Matt Carpenter added two insurance runs with a bases-loaded single before Holliday hit his homer — a 464-foot shot into the left field seats off Curtis Partch, who was making his major league debut. The homer was Holliday’s 10th of the season. Trevor Rosenthal (1-0) had four strikeouts in two perfect innings to get the win.

Corning Freshman, Hunter Pontius took first place overall and is the 2013 State Champion in the Junior Division for the Iowa Hunter Education Challenge that took place over the weekend south of Indianola. Iowa YHEC-the Youth Hunter Education Challenge-is a weekend-long event that takes place each June. This year the event was held at Wesley Woods Camp near Indianola.

Youth from all over Iowa came to compete in 8 events, learn about the outdoors, and have fun with other youth and adults that have similar interests. The events include four shooting events (archery, muzzleloading rifle, shotgun, and small-bore rifle) and four non-shooting events (wildlife identification, orienteering, hunter safety trail, and written exam).

Sponsors for Pontius were Corning Gunclub and Pheasants Forever.

Trevor Bayne wins NASCAR Nationwide in Iowa


June 9th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — Trevor Bayne rallied to win the rain-plagued NASCAR Nationwide series race in Iowa on Sunday, becoming just the third series regular to win this season. Bayne caught pole-sitter Austin Dillon with 11 laps to go and hung on for his second career win and first of 2013. Dillon was second, followed by Elliott Sadler, Sam Hornish, Jr. and Kyle Larson in the first Nationwide race of the year without a Sprint Cup driver.

The race had been scheduled for Saturday night before being washed out by rain. Bad weather forced a 70-minute delay two-thirds of the way through Sunday’s race.
