Chiefs’ Smith sustained shoulder injury vs Rams

Sports

October 28th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith played through a sprained throwing shoulder that he sustained just before halftime of Sunday’s 34-7 rout of the St. Louis Rams. Smith never mentioned the injury in his postgame remarks, and it wasn’t until Chiefs coach Andy Reid brought it up Monday that anybody learned of it outside the Kansas City locker room.

Reid said that Smith landed on his shoulder but played through the pain. The game was still very much in the balance when the injury happened, the Chiefs leading just 10-7 at the break. Smith went through a series of examinations Monday. Reid said the quarterback is “tender” and declined to say whether he will miss any practice time this week.

The Chiefs play the New York Jets on Sunday.

Giants beat Royals 5-0 for 3-2 World Series lead

Sports

October 27th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Madison Bumgarner smothered the Kansas City Royals for the second time in a week, pitching a four-hitter that led the San Francisco Giants to a 5-0 victory Sunday night and a 3-2 World Series lead. Bumgarner struck out eight and walked none in improving to 4-0 in four World Series starts. He has allowed one run in 31 Series innings, an astonishing 0.29 ERA.

Brandon Crawford drove in three runs and Juan Perez hit a two-run double for the Giants, seeking to become only the second NL team to win three titles in a five-year span. James Shields lost to Bumgarner for the second time, allowing eight hits and two runs in six innings.

In the 41 previous instances the World Series was 2-2 in the best-of-seven format, the Game 5 winner has taken the title 27 times. After a day off, the Series resumes Tuesday night at Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium. In a rematch of Game 2 starters, Jordano Ventura pitches for the Royals and Jake Peavy for the Giants.

Cardinals Outfielder Taveras Dies in Car Crash

Sports

October 26th, 2014 by Jim Field

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) – St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras died Sunday in a car accident in his native Dominican Republic.
The crash happened on a highway between the beaches of Sosua and Cabarete in Puerto Plata, about 215 miles north of the capital of Santo Domingo.
“I spoke to the mayor of Sosua, Ylana Newman … and she confirmed to us that Taveras lost control of his vehicle and went off the road,” police spokesman Jacobo Mateo Moquete told The Associated Press.
Angel Ovalles, the Cardinals’ representative in the Caribbean country, said late Sunday that Taveras was driving the car along with a young woman. Erico Rosario, one of Taveras’ representatives, also confirmed his death.
“He was killed in an accident,” Rosario said, weeping.
The 22-year-old Taveras made his major league debut this year. The promising slugger hit .239 with three homers and 22 RBIs in 80 games for the NL Central champions.
“I think he can be a star,” manager Mike Matheny said last Monday at his season-ending press conference. “He proved that at times. Right to the end, he was very, very much into the competition. Yes, he wanted to be the guy out there every day. You see some things offensively that absolutely excite you.”

Rams lose Quick, Saffold to injuries vs Chiefs

Sports

October 26th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The St. Louis Rams lost wide receiver Brian Quick and right guard Rodger Saffold to injuries just two plays apart early in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Chiefs.
Quick hurt his shoulder while getting tackled near the Kansas City sideline on the first play of the Rams’ drive, and Saffold hurt his shoulder while blocking for running back Zac Stacy. Both of the players were questionable to return.

The Rams’ offensive line continued to sustain injuries later in the game. Center Scott Wells left in the third quarter with an elbow injury, shortly before left tackle Jake Long walked slowly off the field with an undisclosed injury.  The Rams were already playing with a depleted defensive backfield. Starting cornerback Janoris Jenkins and backup Trumaine Johnson were inactive with knee injuries.

The Chiefs lost cornerback Jamell Fleming to a hamstring injury early in the second half.
