Morning Sports Report - September 17, 2013

The Bears return to Plaster Saturday - the Cards stay atop the NL Central and Drury women get by C of O in volleyball.
The Missouri State Bears will return to home to Plaster Field for a bear fight with Central Arkansas.
The Central Arkansas Bears are ranked 13th in the latest FCS College Football Poll.
Missouri State is still looking for its first win of 20-13.
In our Bear Nation report, Missouri State will need to clean up its mistakes if it can pull the upset Saturday night.
In the Bears' three point loss to Murray State, they committed 14 penalties for 100 yards, and failed to get any points on a first and goal at the end of the first half.
Missouri State did generate nearly 600 yards of offense and that would help against Central Arkansas.
"Oh yea, mistakes come with playing, 99 snaps, 14 penalties from 99 snaps," says MSU running back Vernon Scott.  "We'd like to see that number down. But that's a lot of plays to be out there playing. It's a little frustrating as a team wise, not just me."
"Yea, it's frustrating but we have to get back out here. And get back to work and get ready for the next opponent," adds Sybhrian Berry, cornerback.

In Major League Baseball:

The bad news for the St. Louis Cardinals is that they've lost three of their last five games.
The good news is that the skid has not cost them any ground in the National League Central race.
Going into last night's game in Colorado, St. Louis was still tied for first.
Here's a look at the NL Central race going into the action:  the Cards and Pirates were tied for first, but check out Cincinnati.
The Reds were only two and a half back.
Joe Kelly starting for the Cards Tuesday night - he's trying to rebound from his first loss in a month.
And St. Louis strikes first in the first inning. Yadier Molina singles to center, Jon Jay scores it's 1-0.
St. Louis gets another in the second, Matt Carpenter with the seeing eye single past first into right, Daniel Descalso scores; it's 2-0 Cardinals.
St. Louis with a big third inning, Molina again, and this time he golfs this to left, off the wall, Matt Holliday scores on the double; it's 3-nothing.
Matt Adam follows by rifling this shot into left, Molina scores; 4-0.
More Cards fun in that third.  Daniel Descalso shoots this into the right field corner, Adams and David Freese both score, making it 6-0.
And the Cardinals go on to win 11-4.
In Kansas City last night, the Cleveland Indians scored five unanswered runs to come from behind and beat the Royals 5-3.\
