Cards Beat Brewers Sunday Afternoon 9-3

Sports

April 8th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Lance Lynn pitched two-hit ball into the seventh inning and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-3 on Sunday, taking two out of three games from their NL Central rivals to start the season. Ryan Braun hit his first home run of the year for the Brewers, a solo shot with the game well out of reach in the ninth. It was the third career start for Lynn (1-0), who played a key relief role during the Cardinals’ championship run last season. The 24-year-old right-hander was added to the rotation after Chris Carpenter went on the disabled list with a shoulder problem this spring. Corey Hart had a solo homer in the fifth for Milwaukee after hitting a pair of home runs Saturday. Next up for the Red Birds, is a trip to Cincinnati, to take on the Reds. You can catch the first game of that series Monday evening with the pre-game show at 5:15, on KJAN.

Interest for Iowa City to Host 2016 Wrestling Trial

Sports

April 8th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – The 2012 U.S. Olympic team wrestling trials are two weeks away but there’s already interest in bringing the event back to Iowa City in 2016.  Josh Schamberger, president of the Iowa City-Coralville Convention and Visitors Bureau, says there is “a real good chance” USA Wrestling will want Iowa City to host the event again. He told the Iowa City Press-Citizen that there is a bid process for the event but a likely sellout for the 2012 event is promising for the future.  Schamberger says more than 11,000 tickets have been sold for this year’s trials, set for April 21-22 at the Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The trial will determine who’ll wrestle for the United States in the London Olympics.

Hart Homers Twice, Brewers Beat Cardinals 6-0

Sports

April 7th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Corey Hart homered twice, Zack Greinke pitched three-hit ball for seven innings and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-0 on Saturday. Rickie Weeks homered while Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Gomez add RBI doubles for the Brewers, who rebounded after dropping Friday’s season opener. Ryan Braun had a pair of doubles and drew a walk after going 0 for 5 on Friday. Greinke (1-0) continued the dominant form he showed at Miller Park all last season. He didn’t walk a batter and struck out seven. Greinke’s strong outing overshadowed the long-awaited return to the mound for the Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright, who missed all of the 2011 season after having elbow surgery.

Sports

April 6th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

MILWAUKEE (AP) — David Freese hit a two-run drive for one of four St. Louis homers off Yovani Gallardo, and the Cardinals spoiled the Milwaukee Brewers’ opener with an 11-5 victory on Friday. Yadier Molina, Carlos Beltran and Matt Holliday also connected for the Cardinals, who are in Milwaukee for a three-game series after opening with a victory over the Marlins in Miami on Wednesday. Gallardo (0-1) lasted only 3 2-3 innings, giving up seven hits and six runs with five walks and three strikeouts. Manager Ron Roenicke gave Gallardo the opening-day start ahead of Zack Greinke, despite Gallardo’s career 1-7 record against the Cardinals with a 5.66 ERA coming into Friday’s game.

Coach Shawn Petersen Comments:

Tough day for the Trojans in a lot of ways; first, getting beat is never fun, but worse than that, we may have lost Matt Cook for the season with a knee injury — he got injured late in his singles match and may be done for the year — we’ll find out more later.  At #1 Mitch got a nice win over a seasoned and talented Hanson by playing big — both guys are big hitters but Mitch was more consistent and figured out some weaknesses and got the win. Tyler at #2 was down big early then rallied to get it close late but couldn’t finish off Taylor. At #3 Matt was up early, but then McIlravy really turned it on and almost had the match closed out before Matt got hurt and couldn’t finish. Gunnar at #4 was up 8-7 and serving late, but his inexperience showed a little bit and he couldn’t close out the experienced Bochart who played high-percentage tennis and got the key win for Creston.  At #5 Scott got buzzsawed a little bit by the senior Hower, who played awfully well and didn’t let Scott get much going in the match.  Jake at #6 played a fantastic match against last year’s #2 player for Creston — Jake had to fight off a couple of match points late then forced a tiebreak that he won 7-4 — the best win of Jake’s young career.  Being down 4-2 after singles meant that we needed to sweep doubles to steal the meet, and we couldn’t get it done.  We lost at #1 doubles 10-7 — after getting down early 4-1, our guys rallied to within one late but Creston held us off for the clinching dual point.  At #2 a bright spot for Atlantic was Tyler and Noah — their match took maybe 25 minutes over a veteran team from Creston — Noah and Tyler really played well and got a great win for us.  At #3 Rob Nichols substituted in for Matt and played quite well alongside Jake, but they ultimately came up short for Creston’s final point.

Overall, more credit should be given to Creston for the win than being upset for anything our guys did to lose — they are a veteran hardworking group who have 6 3-year starters in their lineup — ultimately it came down to the fact that there were 4 tight matches and they won 3 of them, and that’s what decides close duals.  Our guys will regroup, and we’ll have to figure out our lineup after Matt’s injury, but we’ll be ready to go for a tough trip to Glenwood, another veteran talented team, on Tuesday.

Coach Shawn Petersen Comments:

Much like on the boys side, Creston returned virtually their entire lineup from last year, who gave us a good match then when we were loaded with seniors — I figured this to be a tough matchup for our girls and that proved to be the case.  At #1, Tori got her first win as the #1 player, rallying late after being down the entire match to get the win 8-6 — really happy for Tori for the win and proud of her coming back to win a match.  Leah was off most of the night and couldn’t find the range, in losing to a talented Fyock girl.  Lexi kind of got away from her power game a little too much and lost — hopefully she’ll learn to stick to what she’s best at, which is staying on the offense and getting her big forehand going, b/c she has a lot of power in that swing.  Abby continues to work at the tough #4 spot — Abby’s a first-year player, and being varsity #4 first year out is not easy, but Abby will keep working at it b/c she has a great attitude.  At #5 Lisa got beat by the senior Bakerink, but I really like Lisa’s athleticism and know that she has a bright future.  Kaley almost got a win for us at #6 — Kaley’s come a long way and keeps making strides.  In doubles, the girls struggled most of the night against Creston’s big serve games and had a hard time getting anything going — we definitely have a long ways to go in doubles, and just need to keep working to get better every day, so that hopefully we can find some more success down the road.

Medalist:  Brooke Fletcher, Atlantic 43

Top Creston Score:  Miranda Ford 52

 

Coach Kathy Hobson says:   Brooke Fletcher had a good round.  She had a better start tonight which played a role.  Top to bottom, I thought we might score better on our home course.  We had several instances where we struggled from the rough and pulled up on putts.  These girls can be very consistent scorer as we go through the season but they have to stay focused on a couple basic fundamentals.
