Wacha following up on October rookie breakout

Sports

April 11th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Take it from the Cincinnati Reds: Michael Wacha’s breakout postseason was no fluke.  In his first two starts for the St. Louis Cardinals, the 6-foot-6 right-hander has stared down one of the National League’s top lineups. Just like last fall, he’s been impervious to pressure, too.

After the Reds mustered a single run in 12 2-3 frustrating innings against the 22-year-old Wacha, Jay Bruce said it was like facing a carbon copy of Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright, also lean and lanky and among the majors’ best pitchers for several years.

On the rare occasions you get a pitch to your liking, Bruce said, you’d better not miss.

Iowa football looks solid at RB, WR

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa appears to be deep enough at both running back and wide receiver heading into next season. What the Hawkeyes would really like to see is a few of those guys blossom into big-time playmakers.

Iowa’s abundance of backs could be the envy of the new Big Ten West in 2014, and the Hawkeyes are also deep and experienced at wide receiver. But the Hawkeyes also averaged 4.2 yards per rush and 6.8 yards per pass last season en route to just 26.3 points a game.

That’s why one of the main tasks for Iowa this spring has been to identify explosive but possibly inexperienced players and see how close they are to helping Iowa next season.

Reds beat Cardinals 4-0, avoid sweep

Sports

April 9th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Billy Hamilton had three hits and his first two steals, and scored easily after tagging up on a shallow outfield pop fly to support a strong outing from Mike Leake in the Cincinnati Reds’ 4-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday.

Leake (1-1) allowed four hits and a walk in eight scoreless innings and Devin Mesoraco hit a two-run home run for the Reds, who avoided a three-game sweep after dropping their ninth series in their last 10 in St. Louis. They’re 2-4 against the Cardinals, their NL Central rival, and wrapped up a 2-4 trip.

Shelby Miller (0-2) allowed his fourth homer in two starts and faced trouble most of his six innings, but held the Reds hitless in nine at-bats with runners in scoring position. Mesoraco hit his first homer in the fourth after doubling twice Tuesday in his first start after coming off the 15-day disabled list.

other Atlantic scores:

Girls JV: Kuemper 232, Atlantic 265

Coach comments:  It is not the best to have to start our season against Kuemper, but this meet is a good gauge of where we are at and for a first meet, I feel we are sitting in a good spot. Kuemper is a solid team; defending state champs.

Very happy for Brooke Fletcher topping their top 3 golfers for medalist honors with a 3 over par. She finished with 4 pars and a birdie. Erin Olsen is starting the season out strong – some solid pokes of the tees and finishing holes, also with 4 pars. Newcomers Brooke Newell and McKenna DenBeste seemed jittery at first but played more relaxed the second half of their rounds.

Coach comments:  Nice start to the golf season. One of our first rounds on the back. Course was in good shape for the weather. Great to see Evan have a great score when he wasn’t hitting greens. One under for the first match. Look forward to seeing that more often. I though Sam Renaud and Jake Olsen had solid rounds. Both felt they could have shot better. Also nice to see Kyle come in as our 4th score. He struggled on a hole or two but played well otherwise. Cooper and Zac also had good scores. Take out two bad holes and played well. Great start to season.

Meyer, Stokes to leave Iowa

Sports

April 9th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Iowa reserves Kyle Meyer and Darius Stokes are leaving the program.    Hawkeyes coach Fran McCaffery says the seldom-used forwards have been released from their scholarships and plan to transfer.

Meyer, a 6-foot-10 post player from Alpharetta, Ga., played one season at Iowa after redshirting in 2012-13. Meyer appeared in just 12 games and averaged 1.3 rebounds. He’ll have three years of eligibility left.

Stokes played in 38 games in four years with the Hawkeyes. He is scheduled to graduate in May and should be eligible immediately for a final season at another school.
