Cards win, Brewers SS Segura out after son’s death


July 13th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Adam Wainwright pitched seven strong innings and the St. Louis Cardinals sent Milwaukee to its seventh straight loss, 10-2 on Saturday as the Brewers mourned the death of shortstop Jean Segura’s young son. Segura left the team and traveled home to the Dominican Republic, a day after his 9-month-old son died. The Brewers observed a moment of silence for Janniel Segura, and the clubhouse was closed before the game.

The 24-year-old shortstop learned his son had died after the Brewers’ 7-6 loss to St. Louis on Friday night. Manager Ron Roenicke said the boy had been ill. The Cardinals pulled into a first-place tie with Milwaukee in the NL Central. St. Louis trailed by 6 1/2 games on July 1.

Frustrated Brewers star Carlos Gomez struck out swinging in the fifth inning and tried three times without success to break the bat over his leg. He slammed his helmet and tore up his batting gloves.

Hunter-Reay wins IndyCar race in Iowa


July 13th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — Ryan Hunter-Reay blew past the field with two laps to go and won the IndyCar race at Iowa Speedway on Saturday for his first victory since the Indianapolis 500. It was the fifth straight win in Iowa for Andretti Autosport, and the second in three years for Hunter-Reay.

Hunter-Reay hadn’t led a lap since Indianapolis, and he spent most of Saturday’s race far from contention. But he got new tires on a late pit stop and stormed past Tony Kanaan for his third victory in 2014. Josef Newgarden finished second, followed by Target Chip Ganassi teammates Kanaan and Scott Dixon. Ed Carpenter was fifth.

Helio Castroneves finished eighth, taking sole possession of the series points lead.

Holliday Homer Sends Cards to Win Over Brewers


July 12th, 2014 by Chris Parks

MILWAUKEE (AP) – Matt Holliday hit a solo homer with two outs in the top of the ninth inning off Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez, completing the St. Louis’ Cardinals comeback from a six-run deficit for a 7-6 win Friday night over Milwaukee.

Milwaukee has lost six straight and 10 of 11 games.

Holliday sent the first-pitch changeup from Rodriguez (3-3) into the left-field seats to break the tie. The Cardinals hit four homers and cut the sliding Brewers’ lead in the NL Central to one game.

Trevor Rosenthal wrapped up six shutout innings for the St. Louis bullpen with his 28th save, getting two strikeouts after allowing a leadoff single to Aramis Ramirez in the bottom of the ninth. All-Star setup man Pat Neshek (4-0) tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings for the win.

Scott Dixon wins pole for IndyCar race in Iowa


July 11th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — Scott Dixon will start from the pole for Saturday’s IndyCar race at the Iowa Speedway. Dixon will be joined on the top line by Target Chip Ganassi teammate Tony Kanaan following single-car qualifying on Friday. Helio Castroneves will start third, followed by Ryan Briscoe, Carlos Munoz and Sebastien Bourdais.

Team Penske has three of the top four drivers in the points chase with co-leaders Castroneves and Will Power and last week’s winner, Juan Pablo Montoya. But Penske has never won in seven starts at Iowa, while Andretti Autosport drivers have won four straight on Iowa’s short track.

The pole winner has never gone on to win an IndyCar race in Iowa.
