Morning Sports Report - August 20, 2013

The Chiefs make a trade for receivers - and a Springfield Cardinal is named pitcher of the week. Dan Lucy has your morning sports report.
KANSAS CITY, Mo--The Kansas City Chiefs have Monday off, but that didn't stop the front office from making a move that they hope will shore up the receiving corps.

K.C. traded Jonathan Baldwin to San Francisco for receiver A.J. Jenkins.

The Kansas City Chiefs drafted Baldwin with their first round pick in 2011 out of Pitt.

The new Chiefs regime has been frustrated with Baldwin for most of training camp, as he's dropped a number of passes both in practice and in the exhibition games.

In two seasons, Baldwin has caught 41 passes with only two touchdowns.

Jenkins was the Niners first round draft pick in 2012 out of Illinois.

He's only played in three NFL games.

Chiefs general manager John Dorsey says the deal will be beneficial for all parties involved.

-------------------


The St. Louis Cardinals opened a three game series at lowly Milwaukee last night with Shelby Miller on the hill.
The rookie was looking for redemption following his last start, and also looking for his fourth win of the year against the Brewers.  
 
The Cards took two out of three from the Cubs and started play last night just one game out of first in the Central behind Pittsburgh.

And the Cards break on top in the top of the first inning  when Carlos Beltran takes one deep to right center, over the boards and gone, - a solo shot, making it 1-0.

 It was  1-1 in the fourth when St. Louis retakes the lead, with Allen Craig at first, the hit and run, and Yadier Molina fires this into the right field corner.  Caig motors around third and heads for home, he's safe, it's 2-1 St. Louis.

Milwaukee ties it up but St. Louis moves back in front in the sixth, Jon Jay deep to center, a 2-run shot, making it 4-2.

It was 4-3 in the seventh when Aromis Rameriz takes Michael Wacha deep to left, a two run shot that puts the Brewers in front 5-4.

Matt Adams tied it up, then Matt Carpenter singles to left, Daniel Descalso scores, making it 6-5 St. Louis.
And the Cardinals go on to win 8-5.  




SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The first place Springfield Cardinals return to Hammons Field Tuesday night for the second to last homestand of the season.

It's a four game series with Northwest Arkansas.

Springfield is in first place by one game over Arkansas and two games over the Naturals.

And the Texas League named Springfield southpaw pitcher Tim Cooney as it's pitcher of the week.

This is the second straight week that Cooney's won the award.

Cooney beat Frisco in Texas last Thursday going seven innings and striking out seven Rough Riders.

He'll pitch Wednesday against Northwest Arkansas.
