Trivia

Q: Losing their first five games coming out of Major League Baseball's All-Star break last week, the Cincinnati Reds surely will win again soon. Won't they? Name the team that holds the MLB record for consecutive losses.

A: The 1889 Louisville Colonels of the original National League lost 26 consecutive games starting May 22 that year, finally beating the St. Louis Browns 7-3 on June 23. In the modern two-league era, the Philadelphia Phillies hold the record with 23-straight losses during the 1961 season.

 

 

Today in …

1983 – With two out in the ninth inning at Yankee Stadium, Kansas City third baseman George Brett hits a two-run home run off New York closer Rich (Goose) Gossage, putting the Royals ahead 5-4. But Yankees manager Billy Martin protests that Brett has put pine tar on his bat more than the allowable 18 inches from the handle. Umpires agree, calling Brett out and ending the game with the Yankees apparently winning, 4-3. On hearing he ruling, a wide-eyed Brett explodes from the KC dugout and challenges the umps. Royals protest the game, and American League president Lee MacPhail rules that Brett's home run does count, calling for the contest to be resumed with two outs in the top of the ninth. When the game is resumed, weeks later, Royals hold on to win 5-4.

MORRISON, Colorado – Lawrenceburg's J.R. Todd earned his first Top Fuel win of the season and first since 2008 Sunday at the Mopar Mile-High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway.

Todd, driver of the Team Optima Batteries dragster, trailed Brittany Force at the start of the final elimination run.

Winner of the 2006 Auto Club Road to the Future award, as the NHRA's top-performing rookie driver, he was able to defeat the driver of the Castrol Edge dragster with a run of 3.878 seconds at 317.87 miles per hour, besting Force's 3.968 at 297.35.

It was the second career win at Bandimere Speedway for Todd, who claimed his first career NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series win at the facility in 2006.

His last previous NHRA Top Fuel division championship came at Dallas, Texas, in 2008, ending a record-breaking win streak by Tony Schumacher.

BROOKVILLE – Hanover College cross country and track and field recruit Joe Rector, of Aurora, won his second consecutive Southeast Indiana Racing Circuit (SIRC-it) title in Saturday's Lakeside 5K Run event at Franklin County High School.

So did women's division 5K Run winner Lisa Andi, as well as 5K Walk overall winner Bill Cannon, both of West Harrison.

Rector, 18, a May graduate of South Dearborn High School, clocked the winning time of 17:42 on a perfect cool, overcast morning for running on Lakeside 5K's second year of following its 3.1-mile Brookville street course.

The lanky blond youngster won the 2013 Southeast Indiana Racing Circuit overall leaderboard title with a combined time of 1:27.08 for all five 5K races.

Runner-up Justin Noppert, 38, of Lawrenceburg, third finisher in the previous weekend's Trojan Trot 5K SIRC-it series kickoff, came in at 18:12 Saturday.

Working mom Lisa Andi, 32, women's 5K Run champion in four of the five SIRC-it races in a breakout season a year ago, followed last week's 19:08 winning time at St. Leon with a 19:03, finishing fifth overall among a field of 114 runners at Brookville.

Cannon, 48, topped a slim field of eight race walkers with a 31:43 effort. Cannon swept all five SIRC-it 5K walk races in 2012.

YORKVILLE – The Catholic parish, which dates back to 1852, may now be part of the All Saints Church consolidation.

But Yorkville's St. Martin's 5K Country Run - part of the popular St. Martin Church Festival - will extend its tradition for a 34th consecutive year Sunday.

Dearborn County's longest-running road race is scheduled for a 9:30 a.m. start Sunday, rain or shine.

The 3.1-mile course starts in front of St. Martin's Church, proceeding north on York Ridge Road and doubling back. The fast course completely follows asphalt roads, with some small hills.

Race day registration will be $10. Official race t-shirts will be available for an extra $10.

Awards will be presented to the overall men's and women's winners, plus the top three finishers in each age group for men and women, including 14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and over.

St. Martin's signature Most Improved Runner award also will be presented. Candidates must have completed the 2013 race and be pre-registered to qualify. An award for the top Masters runner also will be given.

Modern restroom facilities will be available in the parish hall before and after the race. Water will be available at the start-finish line and on the course during the race. Split times will be given at each mile.

Defending St. Martin's Country Run winners from 2013 include men's overall champion Jordan Brown (18:15) and women's winner Alexandra Stevens (20:25).

Top Masters runner a year ago was Aurora's Jim Rector, with the Most Improved Runner award going to Tony Mapes.
