Rookie Jordan Yamamoto dazzled again, matching his first career start by pitching seven scoreless innings as the Marlins beat the Cardinals 6-0 on Tuesday night. Yamamoto allowed two hits, struck out seven and walked two. He gave up three hits in seven innings in his major league debut, on June 12 in Miami against the Cardinals. Before that game, he had not pitched above Double-A. Yamamoto became the first pitcher since Pittsburgh’s Nick Maddox in 1907 to beat the Cardinals twice in a seven-day span when the first game was his debut. Jack Flaherty pitched seven innings, allowing three runs on four hits while striking out eight, and had the Cardinals’ first hit off Yamamoto, a ground-rule double in the third. Dexter Fowler singled with two outs in the seventh for the other hit.

Dexter Fowler and Matt Carpenter homered to back a strong outing by Miles Mikolas, leading the Cardinals to a 5-0 win over the Marlins on Monday night. Mikolas snapped a career-high losing streak of five straight decisions. He had not won a game since May 6 against Philadelphia. In making his team-leading 15th start and second straight against the Marlins, Mikolas went six innings. He scattered six hits and struck out four. The Cardinals have won four of their last five games and six of their last eight.

The Cardinals announced Monday they have bought the contract of rookie first baseman/outfielder Rangel Ravelo from Triple-A Memphis and placed infielder Yairo Muñoz on the paternity List. To make room for Ravelo on the team’s 40-man roster, the Cardinals transferred right-handed pitcher Mike Mayers from the 10-day Injured List to the 60-day Injured List. Ravelo, a 27-year-old rookie, has appeared in 838 career games in the minors, including stints with the White Sox and Oakland A’s organizations. The Havana, Cuba native was signed by the Cardinals as a minor league free-agent in April of 2017. Ravelo got the opportunity as a pinch hitter in the seventh Monday, grounding out to first.

Paul DeJong tagged the Mets again, hitting a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning that sent the Cardinals over the Mets 4-3 on Sunday. The Cardinals won despite getting outhit 10-3. They took three of four in the series, and DeJong homered in each victory. DeJong is 30 for 83 with nine homers and 10 doubles against the Mets overall. Paul Goldschmidt hit a prodigious home run off the facade of the second deck and scored twice for the Redbirds, who went 5-5 on its season-long 10-game road trip. Andrew Miller pitched a scoreless seventh to earn the victory and Carlos Martinez went two innings for his second save.

A vintage Babe Ruth New York Yankees jersey sold for a record $5.64 million at an auction Saturday. The jersey, which was a road uniform and dates from between 1928 and 1930, broke the previous mark of $4.4 million for a 1920 Ruth jersey. Ruth’s granddaughter, Linda Ruth Tosetti, said the jersey, as well as over 400 other items, was sold with the intent “to further his legacy within a new generation of baseball fans.”

The Cardinals/Mets game was suspended because of rain Thursday night, moments after Harrison Bader hit an RBI double with two outs in the top of the ninth inning that made it 4-all. Play will resume today at 6:10 p.m. beginning in the bottom of the ninth. That will be followed by the regularly scheduled game between the teams. The Cardinals scored twice in the ninth, capping a bizarre sequence that saw umpires reverse their call and order the tarp off the field right after it had been rolled out. Rain was falling hard when the Mets took the field for the ninth with a 4-2 lead, and umps ordered the field covered. After the umps and both managers met in the middle of the diamond, the call was overturned and the grounds crew finished working on the field and action resumed after a nine-minute wait. Kolten Wong then hit an RBI single off the left field wall with two outs and scored when Bader doubled into the corner. Wong managed to keep his footing on the soaked dirt as he rounded third, but Bader was thrown out after he slipped and fell between second and third. The field was covered after that, and the suspension was announced 50 minutes later.

Ryan O’Reilly scored for the fourth straight game and rookie Jordan Binnington stopped 32 shots in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night to lead the Blues to a 4-1 victory over the Bruins and their first NHL championship. Alex Pietrangelo added a goal and an assist and Brayden Schenn and Zach Sanford also scored for the Blues, who woke up on New Year’s morning with the worst record in the league but won 30 of their final 49 regular-season games and soared through the playoffs to reach the final for the first time since 1970. Coach Craig Berube, who took over when Mike Yeo was fired in November, is the fourth coach in the past 11 years hired in mid-season to lead his team to the NHL title. O’Reilly was named the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as the most valuable player of the playoffs.

WRESTLING

The NCAA committee on women’s athletics is recommending all three divisions add women’s wrestling as an emerging sport, a key step toward making it a championship-level sport. If the recommendation is approved, women’s wrestling as well as acrobatics and tumbling would be added as emerging sports Aug. 1, 2020. A sport must have at least 20 varsity teams and/or competitive club teams to be considered for the program, and at least 40 varsity teams for NCAA championship consideration.

The IHSA has approved changes to the boys and girls state basketball tournaments. Beginning in 2021, the IHSA state basketball tournaments will switch from the current four-week setup to one three-day period on consecutive weekends.  For the 2021 postseason, all girls’ state tournament games will occur March 4-6 and boys state tournament games over March 11-13, 2021. This will replace the present concept, which splits 1A/2A from 3A/4A in both genders across a period of four weeks. This has been in place since basketball shifted to a four-class alignment beginning with the 2007-08 season.  Alterations also will be necessary for regional, sectional and super-sectional games according to an IHSA release.

MLB

Rookie Dakota Hudson allowed one run in a career-high seven innings as the Cardinals handed the Marlins their sixth consecutive loss Tuesday night, 7-1. Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina returned after missing 11 games because of a strained right thumb and went 2 for 5 with a single and double. Marcell Ozuna punctuated the victory with a ninth-inning homer, his 18th. He has a career average of .452 against his former team. Hudson gave up four hits, struck out six and retired 10 in a row during one stretch for the Cardinals, who have won his past five starts. The right-hander has the highest groundball rate in the majors, and 12 of his 21 outs came on grounders. He hasn’t given up a homer in 47 innings.

Michael Wacha pitched six scoreless innings in his return to the rotation Monday as the Cardinals broke a three-game losing streak by beating Miami 4-1. Wacha, who was briefly demoted to the bullpen, benefited from three double plays and a pickoff in his first start since May 22. The former All-Star allowed five hits, struck out four and lowered his ERA to 5.63. Jordan Hicks worked around a leadoff single in the ninth and struck out two for his 13th save. The Cardinals totaled only four hits but scored three unearned runs in the sixth, when Marlins catcher Jorge Alfaro made a wild throw on a sacrifice bunt.

The Cardinals have placed right-hander Adam Wainwright on the 10-day injured list with a mild left hamstring strain. The 37-year-old Wainwright was hurt running out a double in the fifth inning of Sunday night’s loss to the Cubs. He returned to St. Louis while the Cardinals flew to Miami for a three-game series, and he’ll be re-evaluated in a week. Manager Mike Shildt said Monday he hadn’t decided who will take Wainwright’s turn in the rotation Friday at the Mets. Right-hander Ryan Helsley was recalled from Triple-A Memphis after being optioned there Sunday. Wainwright is tied for the team lead in wins and is second in innings at 70 1/3. He surpassed 2,000 career innings on Sunday.

The Cardinals have activated Carlos Martínez from the injured list after the right-hander missed the first 44 games of the season because of a strained right shoulder cuff.  The club also designated veteran right-hander Luke Gregerson for assignment before Friday’s interleague game at the Texas Rangers while recalling rookie reliever Ryan Helsley from Triple-A Memphis and sending down right-hander Dominic Leone.  Martínez was a two-time All-Star as a starter for St. Louis before making 18 of his 33 appearances out of the bullpen last season. The 27-year-old is expected to be used as a reliever.  It is the second time Helsley has been brought up from the minors this season. The 24-year-old right-hander gave up two runs in 6 1/3 innings over three appearances in his first stint.  Gregerson, a 35-year-old who hadn’t pitched since last July when he was activated May 4 coming off right shoulder impingement, allowed five runs and 11 hits over 5 2/3 innings in six relief appearances. Leone has an 8.02 ERA in 20 games out of the bullpen.

Adam Wainwright was in vintage form Sunday, pitching six sharp innings as the Cardinals avoided a three-game sweep with a 4-1 win over the Padres. The Padres hadn’t swept a series in St. Louis since 1980, and Wainwright prevented it from happening this time by giving up one run and five hits. He struck out nine and didn’t issue a walk while throwing 100 pitches. Jordan Hicks recorded four outs for his first save in two chances. Yadier Molina had two hits, and moved into seventh place on the Cardinals all-time hit list with 1,857. He passed Ken Boyer, who had 1,855. Before the game, the Redbirds sent RHP Alex Reyes and INF Yairo Munoz to Triple-A Memphis. LHP Tyler Webb and RHP Giovanny Gallegos were recalled and were in uniform.

Harrison Bader hit a two-run homer in the eighth to tie the game at 3. Wong then led off the 10th with a triple and scored when O’Neill followed two batters later with a sharp single to right. John Gant worked a scoreless ninth to pick up the win. Dakota Hudson collected his first major league save when he stranded the tying run at third in the 10th.

The University of Illinois will start selling beer in general seating areas at Memorial Stadium and State Farm Center this fall. School athletics officials said Tuesday that beginning with the 2019 football season, beer will be available at several stands around Memorial Stadium, where the Illini football team plays. Alcoholic beverages will continue to be sold in premium seating areas. A portion of sales will be set aside to pay for more police officers and additional security at home football games. UI Athletic Director Josh Whitman says fans told the school that beer sales would encourage them to use their tickets and increase the amount of time they stay in the stands. Illinois joins five other Big Ten schools that plans to sell beer in their stadiums this fall.

Paul DeJong scored on a passed ball in the top of the 11th inning as the Cardinals rallied past Pittsburgh 6-5 on Monday to spoil the Pirates’ home opener. The Cardinals came back twice against Pittsburgh’s erratic bullpen, tying it in the eighth and again in the ninth. DeJong put the Redbirds in front for the first time when he singled with two outs in the 11th, moved to third after a hit by pitch and a walk and then raced home when Nick Kingham’s fastball squirted past Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli. John Gant picked up the save despite issuing a one-out walk to finish a sloppy 4-hour, 53-minute marathon that featured 16 pitchers, 16 walks, four hit batters, three errors and two home plate umpires. Crew chief Jerry Layne left in the seventh after taking a ball off the mask.

The Cardinals placed five players on the injured list as they shaped their roster for Thursday’s opener at Milwaukee. The team said Monday the official reason for Brett Cecil’s designation is carpal tunnel syndrome, though the left-hander also is dealing with arm fatigue and erratic mechanics. Right-hander Carlos Martinez is out with a strained rotator cuff and reliever Luke Gregerson with a right shoulder impingement. Jedd Gyorko will start the season on the IL after dealing with a calf issue for most of March. He was hoping to be ready by opening day but will instead be out until at least April 4. Justin Williams is on the IL with a fracture in his right hand, though the Cardinals have plenty of depth in the outfield and he will likely head to Triple-A Memphis when he’s ready to go. The Cardinals have also pared down to 25 active players with a flurry of moves. They optioned left-hander Tyler Webb to Memphis and reassigned seven players to the minors: right-hander Chris Beck, left-hander Tommy Layne, catchers Andrew Knizner and Francisco Pena, infielders Tommy Edman and Rangel Ravelo, and outfielder Dylan Carlson.

NFL

As part of the celebration of its 100th season, the NFL will break from tradition and feature the Packers vs. the Bears in its season opener Sept. 5. Usually, the Super Bowl champion is the home team for the prime-time opener, but the league wants to salute historic rivalries in 2019. None fits better than Bears-Packers. The teams have met 198 times since 1921, when the Bears were the Chicago Staleys. Green Bay leads the series 97-95-6, including the clubs splitting two postseason games. Staging the Thursday night game at Chicago’s Soldier Field, even if it is a modernized version of the stadium, adds to the theme. This will be the first time since 2003 the Super Bowl champion has not hosted the opener. New England instead will open at home in the prime-time game Sunday night, Sept. 8. The opponent has not yet been determined. The full schedule will be announced next month.

Mt Carmel is leaving the Big 8 Athletic Conference effective at the end of this school year. According to a release from the Big 8, Mt Carmel was voted out as a member of the conference following the 2020-2021 school year. The release states that Big 8 schools felt it was in their best interest to move forward without Mt Carmel due to recent changes in the IHSA’s football scheduling format. The changes left Mt Carmel with only three guaranteed conference games during the 2020-2021 season. The release further says that Mt Carmel’s decision to leave after the current school year was made after the school found that finding six one year contracts was not feasible, but that finding opponents willing to schedule the Aces for two years became a viable option.

Jim Delany, one of the most influential figures in college athletics for three decades, will step down as Big Ten commissioner when his contract expires June 30, 2020. The Big Ten announced Delany’s plans on Monday. The 71-year-old has been commissioner since 1989. The Big Ten Council of Presidents and Chancellors has started a search for Delany’s successor led by Northwestern president Morton Schapiro and the executive committee. Schapiro said Delany has had an extraordinary impact on the conference and “has been a forward-thinking, collaborative and decisive leader in every aspect of conference proceedings.” Delany oversaw three expansion of the conference to increase membership from 10 to 14 schools, and conference revenues increased dramatically. When Delany launched the Big Ten Network in 2006, it was the first Power Five conference with a television network devoted solely to programming of conference events.

The Cardinals have signed All-Star pitcher  Miles Mikolas to a four-year contract extension.  Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed. Mikolas was recently tabbed as the Cardinals 2019 Opening Day starter after going 18-4 in his initial season with the Redbirds in 2018, co-leading the National League in wins while also posting the league’s top winning percentage. Mikolas was also voted by his teammates as the recipient of the 2018 Darryl Kile Award, presented annually by the Cardinals Chapter of the BBWAA to the Cardinals player who best demonstrates the qualities of the late Darryl Kile by being a good teammate, a great friend, a fine father and a humble man. Meanwhile, right-hander Carlos Martinez had an injection to stimulate healing in his weak pitching shoulder, and likely will not be in the starting rotation at the beginning of the season. The Cardinals said Tuesday that Martinez won’t throw for two weeks after he receeived a platelet-rich plasma injection Monday.

HS FOOTBALL

IHSA member schools have approved a dramatic change to the state’s current football regular season & playoff scheduling system.  Proposal 23 was approved 324-307.  It essentially charges the IHSA with scheduling the majority of regular-season football games for its member schools while also changing the playoff qualification process.   Beginning in 2021, the IHSA will assign football teams to eight or nine team districts based on classification and geography. Previously, schools did not officially know their postseason classification until the completion of the regular-season. The IHSA will assign each school’s regular-season games against their district opponents. Districts will be set for two years, allowing home and away scheduling within the district. Schools can then schedule non-district opponents for any open weeks, but those non-district games will not count toward playoff qualification.

The Blues, meanwhile, have placed backup goaltender Chad Johnson on waivers and called up Jordan Binnington to take his place. The Blues put Johnson on waivers after recalling Binnington and sending forward Sammy Blais down to the American Hockey League’s San Antonio Rampage. Johnson is 2-6-0 with a 3.54 goals-against average and .884 save percentage in 10 appearances this season. The Blues signed the 32-year-old Johnson to a $1.75 million, one-year contract in the offseason to replace Carter Hutton as Jake Allen’s backup. The Blues have lost 10 of its past 14 games, their 24 points are tied for second-worst in the NHL and their .893 team save percentage ranks 25th out of 31 teams. Coach Mike Yeo was fired last month and replaced by Craig Berube on an interim basis.

The Cardinals have struck gold in their search for a big hitter, getting All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt from the Arizona Diamondbacks in a multiplayer trade. The Cardinals sent pitcher Luke Weaver, catcher Carson Kelly, minor league infielder Andy Young and a 2019 draft pick to Arizona in the deal Wednesday. A six-time All-Star at 31, Goldschmidt was among the top players available in the trade market. He hit .290 with 33 home runs and 83 RBIs last season and has often finished high in the NL MVP voting. The Redbirds have missed the playoffs for three straight years, its longest absence since 1997-99. Goldschmidt has a $14.5 million salary next year, receives a $1 million assignment bonus for the trade and will be eligible for free agency after next season. The Cardinals believed they needed a boost in the middle of their lineup to compete with the likes of Milwaukee and the Cubs in the NL Central.

Nebraska opened up an early 11-point lead and then held off Illinois for a 75-60 win Sunday in the Big Ten conference opener for both teams. Nebraska came out hot, hitting its first three field goals and all six of its free throws to go up 13-2 just 2½ minutes into the game. The Illini trimmed its deficit to four points midway through the first half but Nebraska closed on a 10-2 run to take a 39-23 halftime lead.

 Trent Frazier scored 16 points and Kipper Nichols added 14 to lead Illinois past Mississippi Valley State 86-67 on Sunday. With the winm the 2-4 Illini snapped a four-game skid.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

The Illini have opted to extend head football coach Lovie Smith’s contract two more years through 2023. In three years with the program, Smith has gone just 9-27 and after a 4-8 record this year, the Illini have been last in the Big Ten West each of the last two seasons. Illinois Athletic director Josh Whitman says the extension demonstrates his belief in Lovie Smith, his staff and the plan they have for the future success of Illinois football.
