May 8th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Travis Wood pitched impressively into the seventh inning to outduel Lance Lynn, Nate Schierholtz hit a two-run homer and the Chicago Cubs snapped the St. Louis Cardinals’ six-game winning streak with a 2-1 victory Tuesday night. The Cardinals’ streak was their longest since an eight-game run July 11-21, 2010. Wood (2-3) allowed one run and five hits while striking out eight in 6 2-3 innings for his first win since April 27 at Miami.

Carlos Marmol relieved Wood with two outs in the seventh and pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings. In the eighth he allowed a single to Yadier Molina and walked Jon Jay before getting out of the inning by picking Molina off between second and third. Lynn (5-1) was trying to become the National League’s first pitcher to win six games.

CHICAGO (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals closer Jason Motte had season-ending Tommy John surgery Tuesday. Motte tweeted the ligament replacement surgery on his right elbow “went well.” “One day closer to getting back out there then yesterday,” he wrote on Twitter. The Cardinals announced before their game against the Cubs that they had activated first baseman Matt Adams (right oblique) from the disabled list.

Motte was placed on the Cardinals’ disabled list March 29 with right elbow soreness. After trying to rehab the injury and play catch, the team decided he should have the elbow-ligament replacement procedure. Motte saved 42 games in 2012 with a 2.75 ERA. Edward Mujica has taken over as the closer for St. Louis. He has converted all eight of his chances and has a 2.08 ERA.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have hired longtime Bears personnel man Chris Ballard to be their director of player personnel. Chiefs general manager John Dorsey announced the move Tuesday. Ballard has spent the past 12 seasons with the Bears, rising from an area scout to serving last season as their director of pro scouting. Among the player he helped draft were running back Matt Forte, cornerback Charles Tillman and defensive tackle Tommie Harris.

Before joining the NFL, Ballard spent seven seasons as an assistant coach at Texas A&M-Kingsville, where he helped tutor current Chiefs assistant defensive backs coach Al Harris. Dorsey said that Ballard is respected around the league, and called him “a tremendous talent evaluator and a great fit for our staff.”

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — Joey Logano will run a NASCAR Nationwide race in Iowa in June, the night before competing in a Sprint Cup event at Pocono. The Iowa Speedway says Logano will return to its .875-mile track for its Nationwide opener on June 8. Logano beat Kevin Harvick in a K&N Pro Series race at Iowa in 2007 and led the first competitive lap ever run at the track as a 16-year-old in 2006.

Logano says that racing at Iowa and Pocono should be fun and that he’s looking to go “two-for-two” for the weekend. Logano is the biggest driver yet committed to Iowa’s first Nationwide race of the season. The track will host another Nationwide race in August in addition to an IndyCar event and two Camping World Trucks series races.

ISU’s Otzelberger leaving for Washington

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State assistant coach T.J. Otzelberger is leaving the Cyclones for a similar position with Washington. Huskies coach Lorenzo Romar announced Otzelberger’s hiring on Tuesday, calling him a “tenacious recruiter.”  The 36-year-old Otzelberger has been with Iowa State since 2006. He was promoted to associate head coach in 2010 under Fred Hoiberg. Though Otzelberger’s strength lied with recruiting, he was also responsible for Iowa State’s game plans over the past two seasons.

Otzelberger tells The Associated Press that the move felt like a logical step in what he hopes is his progression to a head coaching job someday.

ISU releases details of Hoiberg’s new contract

Sports

May 7th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) – It will cost Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg $2 million to leave the Cyclones for another Division I school under a new contract signed last week and made public on Tuesday.  Hoiberg agreed to a new 10-year, $20 million deal in March after leading Iowa State to back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances.

Hoiberg would essentially owe a year’s salary to Iowa State if he leaves for another school. But Hoiberg’s buyout will be just $500,000 if he accepts a job as a head coach or general manager in the NBA.   Hoiberg also receives $250,000 for reaching the Final Four and $100,000 for winning or tying for the Big 12 regular season title.

Hoiberg’s new deal, which mirrors one recently signed by football coach Paul Rhoads, runs through 2023.
