Carpenter throws to live batters

Sports

June 3rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter threw to live batters Monday for the first time in his comeback attempt from a career-threatening nerve issue. After throwing successful bullpen sessions on May 27 and 30, Carpenter threw about 20 pitches to teammates Shane Robinson and Matt Adams on Monday. He threw another 20 or so without a batter from the mound, while several teammates gathered behind the batting cage to watch.

Carpenter said the next move depends on how his body responds to Monday’s action. If the reaction is positive, he’ll throw two or three more similar sessions before any additional steps such as a rehabilitation appearance. If not, he will once again rest and reset the process which he has done at least twice in his latest comeback attempt.

Des Moines driver anxious for return to Iowa Speedway

Sports

June 3rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

NASCAR driver Michael Annette is looking forward to returning home this weekend when he competes in the DuPont Pioneer 250 at the Iowa Speedway in Newton. The Des Moines native is coming off his best finish of the season in the Nationwide series, a 13th place finish at Dover International Speedway. Annette says he’s ready for a busy week, as he tries to fill ticket requests from friends and family.

Annette missed several races after being injured in a crash at Daytona back in February. Even though he considers the Iowa Speedway his “home track” he will treat it like any other race. But Annette admits winning at the Iowa Speedway would be even sweeter.

Cochran wins Champions Tour event in Iowa

Sports

June 2nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Russ Cochran won the Principal Charity Classic on Sunday for his fourth career Champions Tour title, closing with a 5-under 67 for a one-stroke victory over Jay Don Blake. Cochran finished at 11-under 205 at Wakonda Club. The left-hander, two strokes behind second-round leader Duffy Waldorf entering the day, broke a winless streak that stretched 35 tournaments.

Blake shot 69. He bogeyed the par-3 17th with his first three-putt of the tournament to fall a stroke behind. He had a chance to force a playoff, but his birdie try on the par-4 18th missed to the right. Waldorf had a 71 to tie for third at 9 under with Mark Calcavecchia and Kirk Triplett. Calcavecchia and Triplett shot 67.

Gaudin gets win in first start in 3 years

Sports

June 2nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Chad Gaudin picked up a win in his first start in over three years and Brandon Belt broke a tie with a two-run pinch-hit double to lead San Francisco to a 4-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, ending the Giants’ seven-game road skid.  Gaudin (1-1) went six innings in his first start since Sept. 28, 2009 as a member of the New York Yankees. He allowed four hits and two runs, both coming on a two-run homer by David Freese in the fourth. Gaudin is temporarily replacing Ryan Vogelsong in the rotation. Vogelsong broke several bones in his right hand May 20.
 
Belt slammed the first pitch from reliever Randy Choate into the gap in left-center to bring in Brandon Crawford and Gregor Blanco for a 4-2 lead in the seventh inning. Crawford began the rally with a single off St. Louis rookie Tyler Lyons (2-1).
