KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Salvador Pérez became only the fourth Kansas City player with consecutive multi-homer games and Jarrod Dyson scored the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning when centerfielder Gilberto Celestino made a pair of errors on a simple fly ball, helping the Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 6-5. Pérez hit a 456-foot solo homer in the first and another solo and drive that just cleared the wall in the fifth off JA Happ. With the score 5-5 in the seventh, Jarrod Dyson scored from first when Celestino dropped the ball and followed with an errant throw.

MASON CITY — The new Mason City Toros Tier 3 junior hockey team has named its first coach. Nick Bruneteau recently finished a six-year pro playing career that included stops in the United States as well as Norway, Germany and Italy. The Omaha native comes to north-central Iowa from the central Europe-based Alps Hockey League. He prepped at Shattuck St. Mary’s in Faribault Minnesota before going to the University of Vermont. After playing for the Reading Royals and Indianapolis Fuel of the East Coast Hockey League, he finished his pro career with five seasons in Europe. The Toros are taking over the spot of the North Iowa Bulls in the NA3HL as the Bulls are moving next season to the Tier 2 North American Hockey League.

 

 

IOWA CITY — Iowa basketball coach Fran McCaffery says Jordan Bohannon was on the court as the Hawkeyes began summer workouts today. Bohannon suffered a head injury last month after he was assaulted in Iowa City.

McCaffery expects Bohannon to play off guard next season. With losses from last season and the uncertainty over the future of Joe Wieskamp, McCaffery says the Hawkeyes need a good three point shooter.

McCaffery says junior guard Joe Toussaint was not on the court today. Toussaint is recovering from off-season ankle surgery but should return to the court soon.

McCaffery says he is not sure what factors will determine whether Joe Wieskamp remains in the NBA Draft or returns for his senior season.
