October 4th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Rookie Gerrit Cole gave up two hits in six dominant innings and drove in a run, Pedro Alvarez had a two-run homer and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-1 Friday to even their division series at a game apiece.

After taking advantage of several Cardinals mistakes for a convincing win, the Pirates head home for Game 3 at PN Park, where fans raucously celebrated Pittsburgh’s return to the postseason. Wild-card winner Francisco Liriano faces Cardinals right-hander Joe Kelly on Sunday.

Big 12: Replay correctly upheld disputed play


October 4th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Big 12 says there was no indisputable video evidence showing game officials made a mistake in ruling a Texas running back was down before the ball came loose late in the fourth quarter of the Longhorns’ 31-30 win over Iowa State.

The Cyclones appeared to strip the ball from Texas’ Johnathan Gray with about 1 minute to play. The call on the field was that Gray was down and that was upheld by the replay official. Texas scored the winning touchdown two plays later.

Big 12 officials supervisor Walt Anderson said Friday the replay official watched the play from five angles and “correctly determined there was no indisputable evidence” to confirm or overturn the call. By rule, the call on the field was upheld.

Chiefs without right tackle Fisher vs Titans


October 4th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs will be without rookie right tackle Eric Fisher because of a concussion when they visit the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Rookie tight end Travis Kelce, who’s been dealing with a knee injury, has also been ruled out.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Fisher sustained the concussion in last Sunday’s win over the Giants. Reid thought the blow Fisher sustained was more of a glancing shot to the shoulder than a serious hit to the head, but the No. 1 overall draft pick still hasn’t been cleared to play.

Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles is listed as probable after missing practice early in the week with blisters on his feet. Starting defensive backs Brandon Flowers (knee) and Kendrick Lewis (ankle) are questionable for Tennessee.

Cyclones fall to Texas in controversial ending – Reaction


October 4th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Texas scored with :51 seconds to go in the ballgame and converted the extra point to hold off the upset bid by Iowa State Thursday night 31-30 in Jack Trice Stadium in Ames. The tying touchdown came after a play at the goal line with 1:08 to play where it looked like ISU linebacker Jeremiah George had pulled the ball away from the Texas running back, but the officials ruled the back was down by contact and a video review upheld the call A very emotional Cyclone coach Paul Rhoads, thought his team had the turnover.  “I’ve got pretty good eyesight. The view I had of that gigantic screen in the north end zone showed their guy was not down and our guy with the football,” Rhoads says.

He was asked what the officials told him about the play. “I got the same explanation that everybody in the stadium got– the call was confirmed,” Rhoads replied. Rhoads says the conference will review the play like they do all such disputed plays and will decide what happened. Rhoads was asked what he told his team after the close loss. “I tell them to get ready for Texas Tech. To keep doing the things they’re doing, to keep giving it up for their teammates, to keep working with extreme emotion and effort,” Rhoads says.

George talked about the controversial play after the game and says the Texas player never stopped. “He was trying to score, okay, he was trying to score a touchdown. As a defender you don’t stop until you hear the whistle, the whistle never blew. The whistle never blew until I had the ball in my hand and was 30 yards down the field,” George says.

George says he asked an official about the call after the play stopped. “As they were reviewing the play I was ‘like what’s the rule and how could you call it any other way? And he was like ‘his momentum stopped or something like that’,” George says. “But his momentum didn’t stop. If he were to continue to push and cross the goal line they would have said “touchdown.” Why didn’t they call a fumble? I don’t understand that rule.”

George says they can’t dwell on the loss and have to move on to the next game. “We can’t let it linger because if you think that the Texas Tech Red Raiders care about Iowa State getting a game stolen from them, they really don’t,” George says. “It’a ranked team on the road, it’s going to be a very hostile environment, and we’re going to have to win this football game.”

Iowa State falls to 1-3 overall and 0-1 in the Big 12.
