BACK IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT - J.R. TODD RETURNS FULL-TIME FOR KALITTA NHRA TEAM

Fiery drag racing legend and team owner Connie Kalitta reportedly was quite irate after driver David Grubnic botched a run in qualifying at the SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals Friday, March 28, in Las Vegas.

The 10-time NHRA national event winner and 1994 U.S. Nationals champion, known as somewhat of a maverick over his six-decade career, reacted directly.

Australian Grubnic's misfortune became the good fortune of Lawrenceburg's J.R. Todd, who was tapped to drive Kalitta Motorsports' special edition Bounty Hunter Top Fuel dragster the very next day.

Todd, 32, with six career wins and the 2006 NHRA rookie of the year award under his belt, qualified 11th for Sunday's eliminations at Vegas, racing to the quarterfinals.

Trivia

Q: The Reds and Pirates combined to belt a stadium record 10 home runs in Monday night's weather-suspended six-inning 7-7 contest at Great American Ball Park. What is the Major League record for total home runs by both teams in a single game?

A: 12, achieved twice in games matching the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox, on May 28, 1995, and July 2, 2002. The NL record is 11, from four different games, including the Reds vs. Pirates August 12, 1966, and vs. the Cubs July 28, 1977, both 13-inning contests.


Today in …

1934 – The Dodgers win their season opener 8-7 over the Boston Braves before 28,000 fans at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, N.Y. During the opening ceremonies, an enthusiastic fan in a field box sets off a string of firecrackers several feet in length. A large piece of bunting on the upper deck catches fire and spectators scramble for safety as blazing fragments fall into the seats below. In the confusion, home plate umpire Ernie Quigley overlooks the ceremonial first pitch, scheduled to be thrown out by Brooklyn borough president Raymond Ingersoll. After Dodger pitcher Van Lingle Mungo throws a strike to Boston leadoff hitter Billy Urbanski, Quigley halts the game so the borough president can throw the ball to Brooklyn catcher Al Lopez.

SIX-RUN 6TH BREAKS OPEN CATS' 8-0 WIN VS. KNIGHTS
Written by Staff Report   
Tuesday, April 15, 2014 1:41 PM

BROOKVILLE – It was actually much closer than the 8-0 final score indicated.

Franklin County baseball (4-1), climbing to No. 5 in this week's Class 3A state coaches poll, broke open a 2-0 game with six runs in the home half of the sixth inning to take its Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference opener from visiting South Dearborn Monday night.

Coach Jay Malott's Knights, now 2-2 (0-1 EIAC), wasted a solid pitching performance by sophomore right-hander Wyatt Schwing, who allowed two earned runs in the first inning and scattered five Wildcats hits over five frames, striking out four.

South Dearborn marked eight hits to the hosts' nine, but left 10 baserunners over seven innings, shooting itself in the foot with a total of five errors.
