AM-1490 & 96.7-FM KRIB, kribam.com — Clear Lake baseball vs. Newman — 6:50



ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Miguel Sano’s two-run homer in the eighth inning lifted the Minnesota Twins to a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Sano has homered twice in the past three games. Eddie Rosario singled with one out in the eighth before Sano hit Ty Buttrey’s fastball over the wall in right-center. It is the first home run Buttrey (2-2) has allowed in 38 relief appearances over two seasons. Taylor Rogers (1-0) allowed one hit in 1 2/3 innings and Blake Parker got his eighth save.


CLEAR LAKE — Clear Lake opened up the baseball season last night with a 14-4, six-inning win over Charles City at Lions Field, as you heard on AM-1490 & 96.7-FM KRIB. After both teams went scoreless in the first three innings, Clear Lake used a seven-run fourth, three-run fifth and four-run sixth to pick up the victory. Chase Stuver entered the game in the fourth inning after playing in Clear Lake’s substate quarterfinal soccer game in Waverly earlier in the night and had a two-run single that sparked the Lions seven-run frame. Stuver ended up 3-for-3 from the plate, while AJ Stevenson was 3-for-3 with three RBI. Mac Adams pitched five-and-two-thirds innings to pick up the win, not giving up an earned run while striking out six. Clear Lake is scheduled to host Newman tonight weather permitting. The varsity game is scheduled to start at 7 o’clock and you can hear it on KRIB starting at about 6:50.

IOWA CITY — Iowa has placed its volleyball coach on leave. Iowa athletic director Gary Barta calls it a significant violation.

Bond Shymansky was placed on a 30-day paid administrative leave.  Barta says the violation was first reported by a former student athlete. The school has notified the NCAA of the violation and the investigation is ongoing.

Barta has named associate head coach Vicki Brown as interim coach.

Shymansky has been the Iowa coach for five years and led the Hawkeyes to a 15-16 record this past season. His 2019 recruiting class is ranked 24th nationally, the highest ever for the program.



MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves have named Ryan Saunders their full-fledged head coach. The 33-year-old is the first millennial to hold the job in the NBA. Saunders took over on an interim basis during the second half of the season, assuming the role long held by his late father, Flip Saunders. The widely expected decision was made by new president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas. Players unabashedly endorsed Saunders for his leadership, and owner Glen Taylor made clear he was the favorite.
