SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The Springfield Cardinals close out a four game series against the Travelers Sunday night. After dropping the first three games they look to avoid the sweep.

Cards pitcher Jimmy Reed making his Hammons debut.

And it was a great start for him. Strikes out the first batter of the game, Maikol Gonzales whiffs.

And later here's another strikeout. This time it's Mike Bianucci looking. Reed would retire the first 10 batters.

But in the fourth, here comes trouble Bianucci comes back with a single to right center. Alex Yarbrough scores. 1-0 Arkansas.

Still in the fourth Jett Bundy drills a three run blast to left. That makes it 4-0 Travs on top.

In the fifth Arkansas' back for more Yarbrough with a bloop single. Matt long scores.

Arkansas wins 5-0 and complete the sweep.


ST. JOSEPH, Mo--The Kansas City Chiefs with just two practices left, one Sunday and one Monday, until their preseason opener. In our KC Blitz report, we check back in at St. Joseph for Chiefs training camp.

This is video of Saturday's practice since the rain forced the chiefs to move indoor on Sunday.

Both safety Eric Berry and cornerback Marcus Cooper did participate in practice this afternoon. Which is a great sign for the defense.

Another great sign is the Chiefs pass rush. Putting pressure on the QB has always been a staple in Kansas City and hoping to enforce that theory is rookie Dee Ford. As the first round draft pick anticipates his first game in KC.

"From what I am hearing it is nothing compared to the regular season game but I'm still looking forward to it. Anytime, any opportunity that I have to be at Arrowhead, I am excited about. I was so happy that I was drafted here. Here they take pride in the pass rush. They know what it can do to a game, it can change a game and we take pride in that," said Dee Ford.
