Castillo’s HR in 10th lifts Cubs over Cards 4-3


September 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Welington Castillo homered and drove in the winning run with a 10th-inning single, giving the Chicago Cubs a 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals that tightened the NL Central race Tuesday night. St. Louis’ lead was reduced to 1 1/2 games over second-place Pittsburgh, which clinched a playoff berth by beating Atlanta. With four games to play, the Cardinals, who secured a postseason spot last weekend, still have a magic number of four to wrap up their second consecutive division crown.

Castillo finished 2 for 5 with three RBIs. Zac Rosscup (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning for his first major league win. Pat Neshek (7-2) took the loss.

Iowa’s starting quarterback job in flux


September 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says quarterback C.J. Beathard will open this week’s practices as the starter ahead of Saturday’s Big Ten opener at Purdue. But that’s only because junior Jake Rudock is “day-to-day” because of a leg injury.

Beathard, a sophomore, finally got his shot at extended playing time last weekend. He gave the struggling Hawkeyes (3-1) a major boost in leading them back from 10 points down to beat Pittsburgh, 24-20. Beathard was 7 of 8 passing for 98 yards in relief of Rudock.

Purdue looks for confidence vs Iowa


September 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue is making progress. The Boilermakers already have won twice – one more than in 2013 – and have beaten an FBS school, something they did not achieve during coach Darrell Hazell’s first season as head coach. When Iowa (3-1) comes to West Lafayette on Saturday, Purdue has a big chance to win its first Big Ten game in the Hazell era and to achieve that milestone on homecoming.

Hazell made no attempt to downplay this game’s significance on Tuesday. Since a 38-17 loss on Sept. 6 to Central Michigan, Purdue (2-2) has played well in a 30-14 loss to unbeaten Notre Dame and then scored the game’s first 25 points Saturday in a 35-13 victory against previously unbeaten Southern Illinois.

Gov. Branstad heavily outspending Hatch on TV ads


September 24th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A new study confirms what anyone watching Iowa television probably knows already — Gov. Terry Branstad is massively outspending his Democratic opponent Jack Hatch in the Republican incumbent’s drive for re-election.

The data compiled by the non-partisan Center for Public Integrity shows that $2.9 million has been spent on television advertising in Iowa state level races — such as governor or the state legislature — through Sept. 8.

Nearly all the money has been spent on the governor’s race, with $2.2 million coming from Branstad’s campaign, and just $129,200 from the Hatch campaign.

The Iowa State Patrol reports a 2000 Freightliner semi driven by 24-year old Eric Almanza, of Lenox, was traveling west on Ashworth Road at around 6:15-p.m., when the rig failed to stop at the intersection with Ute Avenue. The semi hit a southbound 2002 Chevy Blazer, driven by 29-year old Nicholas Gordan, of Winterset.

Gordan, and an unidentified minor female in the SUV, also from Winterset, were transported by Dallas County EMS to Methodist Hospital in Des Moines. Almanza, was transported by Dallas County EMS to Mercy West Lakes Hospital.
