Iowa looks to rebound after 7-6 season

Sports

April 12th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Perhaps the most crucial spring practice session of Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz’s 17-year tenure reached the halfway point Saturday. For the third spring game in a row, the Hawkeyes travelled to West Des Moines, Iowa – just minutes away from the state capitol and about a 30-minute drive from Iowa State’s spring scrimmage on Saturday.

Iowa is coming off a disappointing 7-6 season and must replace key starters on both sides of the ball. The offensive and defensive lines are in flux, and C.J. Beathard has taken over at quarterback for Jake Rudock, who will transfer after losing the starting job. “It’s our ninth practice,” Ferentz said. “Depth is always an issue in spring practice and it’s certainly something we’ll continue to develop.”

Adams homers, spurs Cardinals to 4-1 win over Reds

Sports

April 11th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

CINCINNATI (AP) — Matt Adams delivered his first home run of the season and the St. Louis Cardinals snapped the Cincinnati Reds’ season-opening winning streak at four with a 4-1 win on Saturday. Kolten Wong drove in a run with a sacrifice fly, Jhonny Peralta and Yadier Molina added ninth-inning run-scoring singles and Michael Wacha pitched into the seventh inning to get the win in his first appearance of the season.

Wacha (1-0) shook off Todd Frazier’s first-inning home run to go 6 1-3 innings, allowing five hits and one run with a walk and two strikeouts. He stranded a runner in scoring position in each of his last four full innings. The Reds left five runners in scoring position.

Trevor Rosenthal, the Cardinals’ fifth relief pitcher, got the last five outs for his second save.

April 11th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State senior quarterback Sam Richardson has the starting job for 2015 locked up. Grant Rohach solidified his place as Richardson’s backup with a stellar finish to spring practice.

Rohach, who started the final four games two years ago, was 13 of 18 passing for 186 yards Saturday in Iowa State’s spring game. Sophomore Joel Lanning was just 11 of 27 for 125 yards, and he got sacked twice.

Reds stay unbeaten, down Cardinals friday

Sports

April 11th, 2015 by Chris Parks

CINCINNATI (AP) – Joey Votto hit a pair of two-run homers – the strongest indication yet that he’s fully back in form – and Todd Frazier had a tiebreaking sacrifice fly on Friday night, keeping the Cincinnati Reds unbeaten with a 5-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Reds are 4-0 for the first time since 2011, when they won their first five games. They’ve won each game in their final at-bat.

Votto homered off John Lackey in each of his first two at-bats. Frazier’s sacrifice fly in the eighth off Jordan Walden (0-1) marked the second time this week that he’s knocked in the deciding run.

J.J. Hoover (2-0) escaped a threat in the eighth. Aroldis Chapman gave up a hit and fanned two in the ninth for his second save.

Votto hit only six homers last season – the last one on May 10 – and didn’t play after July 5 because of strained muscles above his left knee.

Hoiberg To Undergo Medical Procedure

Sports

April 10th, 2015 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg announced Friday that he will undergo open heart surgery to replace his aortic valve on Friday, April 17 at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

“After my initial surgery to replace my aortic root 10 years ago, I knew that this was something that would need to be done at some point,” Hoiberg said. “My valve has severe regurgitation and the time has come to get it replaced. I am hopeful that this will be my last surgery and I’m looking forward to getting this behind me.”

Hoiberg recently finished his fifth season as Iowa State’s head coach. He has guided the Cyclones to a school-record four consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances and back-to-back Big 12 Championship titles. Hoiberg owns a 115-56 career record.
