Morning Sports Report - July 23, 2014

A hot, steamy night at the ball park with the Springfield Cardinals facing Tulsa. And it would be a nail-biter up to the very bottom of the 9th. Here's your morning Sports Report
ST. LOUIS, Mo--The Springfield Cardinals continued their series with Tulsa Tuesday night.

And the Cards won't have big leaguer Kevin Siegrist in the bullpen.

He's completed his medical rehab and St. Louis will activate him Wednesday night.

Meanwhile a hot and humid night at Hammons for the Cards and Drillers.

And Springfield's Kyle Hald was throwing b-b's, he strikes out Taylor Featherston swinging to end the first.

The Cards gave him support in the bottom half, two out and Curt Smith doubles to center that scores Cody Stanley and it's 1-nothing Springfield.

The Cards add to it, Breyvic Valera flares this into short center, it drops in, Smith scores and it's 2-nothing Springfield.

The Cards running last night on the Drillers as well, Valera with the stolen base.

That was key, because Rafael Ortega then singles to center, that scores Valera to make it 3-nothing.

Then Matt Williams doubles to center, Ortega scores it's 4-nothing.

Tulsa scored six in the sixth to take the lead, but it was an 8-8 game in the bottom of the ninth.  Springfield scores again to win 9-8.

ST. LOUIS, Mo--The St. Louis Rams are sweating it out at their training camp in the St. Louis area.

And the hot topic the last 24 hours has centered on Rams rookie linebacker Michael Sam and former Bucs and Colts head coach Tony Dungy.

Dungy told the Tampa Bay Tribune that if he were still coaching in the NFL he would not have drafted Michael Sam.

Saying the first openly gay player would be a distraction and he would not want to deal with that.

After a backlash of reaction, Dungy clarified his statement saying that Michael Sam absolutely deserves a chance to play in the NFL.

Dungy went on saying that he has no problems having Sam on his team, the distraction would come from the media.

Michael Sam and his Ram rookie teammates reported to camp Tuesday.
