Morning Sports Report – 8/27/2014

Travis Wood pitched six innings of two-hit ball against his former team for his first win in two months, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 3-0 victory over Johnny Cueto and the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. Arismendy Alcantara hit a two-run shot and Anthony Rizzo connected for his 30th homer for the Cubs, who have won four in a row for the first time since June 30-July 4. Cincinnati was shut out for the 12th time this season. Cueto struck out eight in 6 1-3 innings in his second straight loss after winning seven consecutive decisions. Cincinnati will look to even the series tonight versus Chicago and will send Matt Latos the mound. Tonight’s game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pre game set for 6:40 and the first pitch at 7:10.

After three weeks of sprints, drills, meetings, tackles and cold tubs, the Bobcats are ready for the regular season to begin. The grind of the Ohio University’s annual fall camp is over and the Bobcats are now less than a week away from the 2014 season opener on Saturday. Several players said this week, despite the trials and tribulations of two-a-days, they’ve never had more fun during August. Ohio coach Frank Solich said the reason for that goes to the team’s leadership core and the difference between 2013 and 2014 was noticeable. The ‘Cats will square off against the Golden Flashes at Kent State this Saturday at 6PM.

1 True to his word, Solich named a starting quarterback on Monday. True to his track record, he also promised he’d play more than one quarterback in the Bobcats’ season opener. Derrius Vick was tabbed by Solich as Ohio’s starting quarterback, and he’ll be the first signal-caller on the field for the ‘Cats in Saturday’s game at Kent. Vick emerged as the top choice after an extended competition with sophomore J.D. Sprague. Solich added that Sprague will play at some point against the Golden Flashes. He wouldn’t specify when or how much, but Solich is a firm believer in having his backup quarterback get playing time.Login Top of Form

Kenny Kaminski, a 6-foot-8 forward, has enrolled at Ohio University for the fall semester and will be joining the men’s basketball team as a scholarship player. Kaminski signed with Michigan State out of high school, and sat out the 2012-13 season while recovering from a shoulder injury. As a redshirt freshman in 2013-14, Kaminski averaged 4.9 points per game and played 12.2 minutes per contest with the Spartans. One source indicated that Ohio and Kaminski would pursue a waiver from the NCAA to be eligible to play immediately. If the waiver appeal is denied, Kaminski could practice with, but could not play for the Bobcats this season.
