Halladay Tosses Gem, Phillies Down Cards


April 20th, 2013 by Chris Parks

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Roy Halladay tossed a two-hitter over seven innings and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 8-2 Friday night in a rain-shortened game to snap a four-game losing streak.

Halladay (2-2) allowed two runs, walked two and struck out six to record a complete game. He’s had consecutive strong outings after starting the season with two poor ones. The two-time Cy Young Award winner is coming off an injury-plagued, subpar year, but has looked like his old self this week.

Jimmy Rollins, Ben Revere, Humberto Quintero and John Mayberry Jr. each had two hits for the Phillies, who busted out of their slump with five runs off Jaime Garcia (1-1) in the first inning.

Carlos Beltran and Matt Holliday hit solo homers for the Cardinals.

The game was called after a 35-minute rain delay before the bottom of the seventh.

News, Sports

April 19th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Officials with the Harlan Community School District say there are calls being circulated with regard for advertising on athletic posters. Athletic Director Mitch Osborn said in a press release a man by the name of “John Pennington,” is calling businesses to sponsor a poster of athletic schedules. Pennington contacted our sister station KNOD in Harlan on Tuesday, about purchasing an ad on the poster.

Osborn says the school has a partnership with the Harlan Newspaper and it is the only school sponsored athletic poster and schedule. The paper then contributes back to the school programs.

Beltran, Wainwright lead Cards past Phillies 4-3


April 19th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carlos Beltran hit a go-ahead homer in the eighth, Adam Wainwright pitched seven solid innings and the St. Louis Cardinals escaped a ninth-inning jam for a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday night. Philadelphia put runners at first and third with nobody out against Edward Mujica, but the fill-in closer retired three straight batters to preserve the victory.

Yadier Molina went 3 for 4 with two RBIs for the Cardinals, who had seven hits one night after getting held to Beltran’s seventh-inning double in a 5-0 loss to A.J. Burnett and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Wainwright (3-1) wasn’t as sharp as his previous start, when he pitched a four-hitter and matched a career high with 12 strikeouts Saturday in an 8-0 win over Milwaukee, but he was still effective.

KC Chiefs News


April 19th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs coach Andy Reid will make his return to Philadelphia when Kansas City visits the Eagles for a Thursday night game in mid-September. Kansas City opens the season Sept. 8 at Jacksonville, plays its home opener Sept. 15 against Dallas, and then visits the Eagles — where Reid spent 14 years as head coach — on Sept. 19 for a prime-time game. The Chiefs return home against the Giants on Sept. 29, visit Tennessee the next week, and then have three straight at Arrowhead Stadium against Oakland, Houston and Cleveland. They visit Buffalo before a bye week Nov. 10, and then visit the Broncos before two more at home against San Diego and Denver. The Chiefs play three of their last four on the road: at Washington and Oakland, against Indianapolis on Dec. 22, and at San Diego to finish the season.


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid denied a report Thursday that the team has given permission to the Miami Dolphins to speak with left tackle Branden Albert. Reid said the report was not true, denying any suggestion the Chiefs granted permission to help facilitate a trade of the franchise tackle for a second-round pick in next week’s draft. Albert has not attended any of the Chiefs’ voluntary offseason workouts after expressing his displeasure with getting the franchise tag. Albert said he wants a long-term commitment, and has indicated he’s unwilling to move to the right tackle. Nevertheless, Albert has already signed the tender, which means he will make about $9.3 million if he plays for Kansas City under the franchise tag next season.


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Alex Smith has been relishing his chance to get on the field with the Kansas City Chiefs. Even if it’s April, and only for three days — all without pads. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been itching for the moment ever since he learned of the trade that sent him to Kansas City. The Chiefs finished a voluntary, three-day minicamp Thursday, which is allowed for teams that underwent an offseason coaching change. They’ve certainly been helpful for a team that also experienced a quarterback change. Smith has been able to bore into the Chiefs’ playbook, begin building chemistry with his wide receivers and offensive line, and get some hands-on work with coach Andy Reid and new offensive coordinator Doug Pederson.

Wild move minor league team from Houston to Iowa


April 19th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Wild are moving their primary minor league team to Iowa. The Wild made the long-anticipated announcement Thursday that their American Hockey League affiliate will relocate from Houston to Des Moines, starting next season. Wild chief operating officer Matt Majka says the organization was unable to agree on terms of a new arena lease at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The Aeros have been the Wild’s top minor league club in the 30-team AHL since 2001. Des Moines is about a 3½-hour drive from the Twin Cities.
