Cardinals Beat Reds 2-1 in 10 innings Tuesday


April 18th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Matt Carpenter hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the 10th inning to give the St. Louis Cardinals to a 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. David Freese walked to lead off the 10th off Sam LeCure (0-1). Tyler Greene came in as a pinch-runner and advanced on a sacrifice by Yadier Molina. After an intentional walk, reliever Bill Bray entered and walked Daniel Descalso to load the bases. Carpenter, who returned to the bench after playing the last four games for the injured Lance Berkman, pinch-hit and worked the count full before flying out to right field. Jay Bruce’s throw home was unable to nab Greene. It was Carpenter’s 11 RBI of the season. Jason Motte (1-0) worked the 10th for St. Louis.

Former Hawkeye Returns from Colorado for Drake Job


April 18th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A former Iowa basketball player will return to her home state and coach Drake University’s women’s team. Drake introduced Jennie (Lillis) Baranczyk (bah-RAHN’-chek) at a news conference Tuesday in Des Moines. The 29-year-old Baranczyk has spent the past two seasons on the staff at Colorado, where she went after coaching at Marquette. Baranczyk says she’s “thrilled” to be at Drake. Colorado head coach Linda Lappe praised Baranczyk as a good teacher who has high character. Baranczyk captained the Hawkeyes for three years and graduated in 2004. She’s replacing Amy Stephens, who left Drake after nine seasons. Stephens claimed she resigned because she and school had different visions for the program’s future. The Bulldogs finished with an 18-16 record this past season.

Chiefs’ Berry wonders about hit that left him hurt


April 17th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs safety Eric Berry is telling people to “make your own opinion” about whether the Buffalo Bills intentionally hurt him in last season’s opener. Last month, as the NFL was accusing the New Orleans Saints of using a bounty system to reward players for knocking opponents out of games, Berry tweeted that he wondered whether the Bills had offered incentives to hurt him. The Pro Bowl safety tore the ACL in his left knee when he was blocked by wide receiver Stevie Johnson. Although the open-field block was deliberately low, it was still within the rules. Berry said Tuesday that his tweet was “pretty much a joke. Pressed on whether he thought the hit was intentional, he said: “You can look at the tape and make your own opinion about that. I mean, my opinion is my opinion.”

Chiefs Return for Start of Offseason Program


April 17th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – After a season of turmoil, one marred by injuries to some of their best players and the firing of the head coach, the Kansas City Chiefs are ready for a reset. The Chiefs began their offseason program Monday, and next week’s draft gives general manager Scott Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel another opportunity to fill holes that have developed since last season’s 8-8 campaign. Pioli has already been busy this offseason, bolstering the offense by signing tackle Eric Winston, running back Peyton Hillis and tight end Kevin Boss.    Kansas City will also get a bunch of players back from injuries, including quarterback Matt Cassel, Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry and All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles. You can listen to Kansas City Chiefs football all season long, on KJAN.
