Descalso hits HR, Cards beat reeling Braves, 8-2

Sports

May 28th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ATLANTA (AP) – Lance Lynn joined Philadelphia’s Cole Hamels as the major leagues’ first eight-game winners, and the St. Louis Cardinals’ extended the Atlanta Braves’ longest losing streak in two years to eight games with an 8-2 victory Monday.  Lynn (8-1) allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings. While he was dominating the Braves, Hamels pitched the Phillies to an 8-4 win at the Mets.  Atlanta is on its worst skid since the Braves lost nine in a row from April 21-29, 2010. The Braves have given up seven runs or more in four straight games. Daniel Descalso hit a two-run homer as a fill-in starter at third base for David Freese, who was given a day off with a mild sprain of his right hand. The Cards and the Braves face off again Tuesday. Pre-game on KJAN is at 5:15, with the first pitch at around 6:10.

Cubs activate Marmol, send Dolis to minors

Sports

May 28th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — The Cubs have activated reliever Carlos Marmol from the 15-day disabled list and optioned Rafael Dolis to Triple-A Iowa. Manager Dale Sveum says Marmol will be used in a setup role and not as the closer, a job he lost to Dolis this month. Marmol then went on the DL because of a strained right hamstring on May 12. He was 0-1 with a 6.35 ERA in 15 appearances this season and had two blown saves in four chances before Monday’s game against San Diego. Dolis wasn’t much better with a 2-4 record, 5.68 ERA and four saves in six chances.

Iowan Zach Johnson finishes on top in the Colonial

Sports

May 28th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

 FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – Zach Johnson shot a 2-over par 72 in the final round of the PGA’s Colonial, but finished play on top by one stroke over Jason Dufner. The last round was a tough one for Dufner, the leader after three rounds, as he shot a 4-over-74. Johnson got the win despite a double bogey on the 18th hole.  Dufner’s 74 included two double bogeys, two bogeys and three birdies.

Cardinals beat Phillies 8-3, avoid historic sweep

Sports

May 27th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Roy Halladay gave up a grand slam to Yadier Molina in an abbreviated two-inning start before leaving with shoulder soreness, and the St. Louis Cardinals avoided a four-game sweep with an 8-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. The Phillies were looking for their first four-game sweep in St. Louis in 99 years.
 
Adam Wainwright (4-5) allowed a run on seven hits in six innings, thriving in 90-degree heat for his second straight dominant outing. Molina left due to dehydration during an at-bat in the fifth.  All of the Cardinals’ runs came from homers. Carlos Beltran’s three-run homer in the fifth was his NL-leading 15th and rookie Matt Adams, who’s been filling in for injured Lance Berkman at first base, hit the first of his career off Chad Qualls in the seventh.

Halladay (4-5) departed with a 3.98 ERA after an outing that matched the second-shortest outing of his career. The team said the two-time Cy Young award winner was taken out as a precautionary measure and that he’ll be re-evaluated in the next few days.

Phillies Blank Cardinals Saturday

Sports

May 27th, 2012 by Chris Parks

ST. LOUIS — Kyle Kendrick’s first win of the year was almost worth the wait.

The right-hander was in complete control with a seven-hitter for his first career shutout, putting the Philadelphia Phillies on the verge of their first four-game sweep in St. Louis since 1913 with a 4-0 victory on Saturday night.Shane Victorino’s RBI double in the fourth was the only support Kendrick (1-4) needed. John Mayberry added a two-run double in a three-run sixth, and Hunter Pence and Brian Schneider had two hits apiece for the Phillies, who have won four in a row.Roy Halladay (4-4, 3.58) pitches in the finale on Sunday, facing Adam Wainwright (3-5. 4.78)”That’s a good offense over there, so it’s a good feeling,” Kendrick said. “I wanted to go out there and finish it, give the bullpen a little rest and watch Roy throw tomorrow.”Kendrick entered with a 5.23 ERA and the Phillies were 1-9 in the games he pitched, five of them starts. But he’s 5-1 against the Cardinals in eight games, all but two of them starts, and three of the wins have come in St. Louis.He didn’t mind that it was 94 degrees at gametime.”This is one of my favorite places to pitch, Atlanta and here,” Kendrick said. “It’s warm, I like the humidity.”Jaime Garcia (3-3) allowed four runs on six hits in six innings for the Cardinals, who swept a three-game series against the Padres before hitting the wall against the team they upset in the NL division series last fall.  The Cards and the Phils play again on Sunday 5/27 with a 12:20 pregame on KJAN.
