ST. LOUIS (AP) – Randy Wolf pitched eight sharp innings and the Milwaukee Brewers jumped on Jake Westbrook early to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-1 Wednesday night, giving the NL Central leaders their 13th win in 14 games.  Prince Fielder had a sacrifice fly in the first inning and an RBI double in the third to help the Brewers open a five-game cushion on the second-place Cardinals.  Milwaukee clinched only its fifth road series win of the season and will try for a sweep Thursday night. The Brewers have taken four of five from St. Louis this month.  The Brewers are 41-15 at home and just 26-35 on the road, but are one win away from a perfect 6-0 trip.

Iowa Content Being Out From Spotlight in 2011

     IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – A year ago, Iowa tumbled from a preseason top-10 ranking to a .500 finish in the Big Ten.  The Hawkeyes earned a trip to the Insight Bowl, but they went without their top running back and wide receiver after December arrests.  The glow over a comeback win over Missouri was sullied by an offseason workout gone awry. It left 13 players hospitalized, and coach Kirk Ferentz was forced to defend his program.  All that drama, coupled with the departure of a celebrated senior class led by Adrian Clayborn and Ricky Stanzi, has significantly lowered expectations for Iowa in 2011.

Cyclones Search For QB Will Define Upcoming Season

Sports

August 11th, 2011 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State’s defensive line appears to be its strongest in years. its linebackers and defensive backs are skilled and experienced. The Cyclones have intriguing options at wide receiver and running back and three starters back in the trenches.  None of that will matter if they can’t find a quarterback.  How Iowa State replaces three-year starter Austen Arnaud will likely define its third season under coach Paul Rhoads. Junior Jerome Tiller, junior college transfer Steele Jantz and redshirt freshman Jared Barnett are all in contention for the job.  Iowa State finished 5-7 (3-5 Big 12) in 2010, missing out of postseason eligibility after a 14-0 home loss to Missouri in its finale.

     ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) – Tamba Hali thanked Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt and his family, then talked about getting back to work.  Kansas City’s star linebacker spoke with reporters Tuesday for the first time since signing a five-year, $60-million contract last week. The Chiefs placed the franchise tag on Hali during the
offseason, but there was no lengthy holdout from a player coming off of a career year in which he had 14 1/2 sacks.  Hali’s deal made him the second-highest paid outside linebacker in the league behind Dallas’ DeMarcus Ware. The contract included $35 million guaranteed.
