1 of 2 suspects Project Recycle in Boston held Saturday bombing killed
The Associated Press WATERTOWN, Mass. — The two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing killed an MIT police officer and hurled explosives at police in a car chase and gun battle overnight that left one of them dead and his brother on the loose, authorities said today as thousands of officers swarmed the streets in a manhunt that all but paralyzed the Boston area. The suspects were identified by law enforcement officials and family members as Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, brothers from a Russian region near Chechnya, which has been plagued by an Islamic insurgency that has carried out deadly bombings. They lived near Boston and had been in the U.S. for about a decade, an uncle said. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a 26-year-old who had been known to the FBI as Suspect No. 1 and was seen in surveillance footage in a black baseball cap, was killed overnight, officials said. His brother, a 19-year-old college student who was dubbed Suspect No. 2 and was seen wearing a white, backward baseball cap in the images from Monday’s deadly bombing at the marathon finish line — escaped. The law enforcement officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the unfolding case. Authorities in Boston suspended all mass transit and warned close to 1 million people in the entire city and some of its suburbs to stay indoors as the hunt for Suspect No. 2 went on. Businesses were asked not to open. People waiting at bus and subway stops were told to go home. From Watertown to Cambridge, police SWAT teams, sharpshooters and FBI agents with armored vehicles surrounded various buildings as police helicopters buzzed overhead. “We believe this man to be a terrorist,” said Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis. “We believe this to be a man who’s come here to kill people.” The bombings on Monday killed three people and wounded more than 180 others, tearing off limbs in a spray of shrapnel and instantly raising the specter of another terrorist attack on

One Year Ago St. John’s Elementary School third-graders in Teresa Recker’s class are filming “Inside a Barn in the Country.” Students used puppets purchased with MAC Grant funds several years ago. Librarians Jean Mueller and Karen Densel assisted with the production. 25 Years Ago – 1988 More than 100 of Allen County’s outstanding graduating seniors will be recognized for their scholastic achievements April 20 at an academic excellence dinner.

Brent Reidenbach was the only Blue Jay with more than one hit as he went 2-for-3. Randy Mueller and Scott Schulte had two RBIs each. Delphos Future Farmers of America member Doug Eggeman showed third-grader Kim Keyton, a student at Franklin Elementary School, how to milk a cow at Tom Hempfling’s dairy farm. Third-graders from St. John’s, Landeck and Franklin elementary schools visited area farms Monday, with Delphos FFA members giving farm tours and demonstrating various farm procedures used to make food. 50 Years Ago – 1963 Twenty-six members of the Delphos United Presbyterian Women’s Organization attended a tea given by the United Presbyterian Women’s Organization of the Venedocia Salem Presbyterian Church Wednesday evening.

IT WAS NEWS THEN

Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and NBA star Patrick Ewing. The images released by the FBI depict the two young men walking one behind the other near the finish line. Richard DesLauriers, FBI agent in charge in Boston, said Suspect No. 2 in the white hat was seen setting down a bag at the site of the second of two deadly explosions. Authorities said surveillance tape recorded late Thursday showed Suspect No. 2 during a robbery of a convenience store in Cambridge, near the campus of MIT, where a university police officer — 26-yearold Sean Collier — was shot to death while responding to a report of a disturbance. From there, authorities said, the two men carjacked a man in a Mercedes-Benz, keeping him with them in the car for half an hour before releasing him at a gas station in Cambridge. The man was not injured. The search for the vehicle led to a chase that ended in Watertown, where authorities said the suspects threw explosive devices from the car and exchanged gunfire with police. A transit police officer was severely wounded, authorities said. Watertown resident Christine Yajko said she was awakened at about 1:30 a.m. by a loud noise, began to walk to her kitchen and heard gunfire. “I heard the explosion, so I stepped back from that area, then I went back out and heard a second one,” she said. “It was very loud. It shook the house a little.” She said a police officer later knocked on her door and told her there was an undetonated improvised explosive device in the street and warned her to stay away from the windows.

U.S. soil. Authorities have shed no light on the motive for the attack and have said it is unclear whether it was the work of domestic or international terrorists or someone else entirely with an unknown agenda. The endgame — at least for Suspect No. 1 — came just hours after the FBI released photos and video of the two young men at the finish line and appealed to the public for help in identifying and capturing them. Tips came pouring in to the FBI immediately, but exactly how authorities managed to close in on the two was not immediately disclosed. The men’s uncle, Ruslan Tsarni of Montgomery Village, Md., told The Associated Press that the brothers traveled here together from the Russian region near Chechnya. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was registered as a student at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, the school said. The campus closed down along with other colleges around the Boston area. Their father, Anzor Tsarnaev, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press from the Russian city of Makhachkala that his younger son, Dzhokhar, is “a true angel.” “Dzhokhar is a second-year medical student in the U.S. He is such an intelligent boy. We expected him to come on holidays here,” the father said. The city of Cambridge announced two years ago that it had awarded a $2,500 scholarship to Dzhokar Tsarnaev, who was listed as a senior at Cambridge Rindge & Latin School, a highly regarded public school whose alumni include

The VFD controllers are connected to the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), a system that collects data from various sensors at the treatment plant and sends data to a central computer that manages and controls the data. One of the key processes of the system is its ability to monitor an entire system in real time and send data to a Human Machine Interface (HMI) where data is viewed and monitored by an operator. “We can monitor different level transmitters, monitor the speed of the water and how much water is on top of a filter,” Williams detailed.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The Ohio Attorney General’s Office is sending a training video to every school district in the state about how to prepare and respond to a school shooting situation. The office said the video — called “School Shootings: How to be Aware, Prepare, and be a First Responder in a Crisis” was being mailed to districts beginning today. The video is an extension of the in-person training at the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy that began in January and has attracted more than 4,200 educators and others. Participants were instructed to be aggressive about reporting troubling student behavior, practicing for an active shooter situation and making sure school staff and law enforcement have a similar understanding about how a response would work.

AKRON (AP) — Police are searching for answers in the shooting deaths of four young adults in the basement of a northeast Ohio townhome. Names of the victims in the Thursday shooting haven’t been released by police, but family members at the scene said the bodies had been identified. The victims were two men and two women. Police said they had all been shot in the head at close range. A friend at the Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority complex told reporters he went into the townhome just before 3 p.m. Thursday and saw shell casings on the floor before discovering the bodies in the basement. The housing complex is in the Chapel Hill section of Akron, about 35 miles south of Cleveland. Police spent Thursday night collecting evidence and talking to neighbors. In 1852, Ohio became the first state to enact laws to protect the working women.
Police search for clues in OH townhome slayings
COLUMBUS — A sweeping state budget that would give residents an income tax cut while scrapping an expansion of Medicaid passed the Republican-controlled House on Thursday after lawmakers agreed to continue discussing health coverage for the poor. The $61.5 billion, two-year budget rewrites Republican Gov. John Kasich’s proposals for overhauling the state tax code and drops his plans to extend Medicaid health coverage to thousands more low-income residents. The House voted 61-35 on the spending blueprint, which would begin July 1. The plan, with the support of three Democratic lawmakers, now goes to the GOP-dominated Senate, where more changes and hearings are expected. Before the final vote, representatives dumped a contentious provision approved by a House committee that would have barred instructors from distributing contraceptives or promoting what the provision referred to as “sexual gateway activities” in health education classes. Other debate was focused on whether the state should move forward with expanding the federal-state Medicaid program under President Barack Obama’s health care law. Roughly 366,000 low-income Ohio residents would be eligible for coverage beginning in 2014 by expanding Medicaid, the health program for the poor that already provides care for one of every five residents in the state. The Kasich administration expects the state to see $13 billion from the federal government over the next seven years to cover those newly eligible for Medicaid. Instead, representatives Thursday evening unanimously approved an amendment to give lawmakers time to study the issue and allow the state to pursue other options. The Kasich administration has been negotiating with federal officials for months over the details of possibly providing private health coverage to some people who would be eligible for Medicaid under the expansion. The amendment directs administration officials to assist lawmakers in developing Medicaid reforms and to submit a Medicaid plan to the Legislature by this fall. It says state lawmakers would have to sign off on any Medicaid proposal that has federal approval before it gets implemented. The change had the reluctant support of Democrats, who earlier Thursday had tried unsuccessfully to restore Kasich’s proposal into the budget. Democrats argued pursuing expansion was the best way to create new jobs, save state taxpayer dollars and keep Ohio residents healthy. “We had the opportunity to do the right thing today, not to just kick the can down the road,” House Democratic Leader Armond Budish, of Beachwood, told his colleagues. Still, he said, the amendment was “better than doing nothing.” The amendment requires a future bill be introduced in the House that reforms the Medicaid program and reduces the number of people who enroll in the program over time. House Finance Chairman Ron Amstutz, a Wooster Republican, said the measure allows lawmakers the chance to work with the Kasich administration to find common ground. “If we want healthy Ohioans, we need to roll up our sleeves,” Amstutz said. “And next week and the week after find ways to come together and do good policy.”

After 25 years, familiar religion-beat questions
Friday, April 19, 2013
Every year or so, editors are asked to sit patiently while market researchers dissect thick reports about what consumers say they want to see in their newspapers. That was already true back when Harry Moskos was editor of the Knoxville (Tenn.) News Sentinel. But he immediately noticed something strange when handed the executive summary of one late-1980s survey. Two words near the top of the subjects valued by readers caught his attention -“religion” and “family.” Yet the professionals interpreting the data offered zero suggestions for improving coverage of those subjects. “I remember saying, ‘Look at that.’ ... Those words just jumped out at me, primarily because I knew people in Knoxville tend to see those subjects as connected,” said Moskos, 76, in a telephone interview. He recently ended his 60-year journalism career, with most of that work in Knoxville and in Albuquerque, N.M. Of course, he admitted, the fact he noticed the words “religion” and “family” also “says something about the life I’ve lived and how I was raised” in a devout Greek Orthodox family. “I just knew we had to do something ... to respond to that interest among our readers,” he said. Thus, Moskos asked his team to create a
section on faith and family life. As part of that effort, he asked -- at a meeting of Scripps Howard editors -- if the newspaper chain could start a national religion-news column. That’s how -- 25 years ago this week -- I began writing this “On Religion” column for the Scripps Howard News Service. At that time, I was the religion reporter for one of the chain’s major newspapers and then I continued this work while teaching, first in a seminary, then in two liberal arts colleges and, now, as director of the Washington Journalism Center. Through it all, I have been amazed that many people still think religion is a boring, unimportant subject that can be relegated to the periphery of news coverage. The late Associated Press religion writer George Cornell once noted that -- year after year -- at least half of the items in that wire service’s global list of the top news events have obvious ties to religion.
And what about that journalistic mantra, “Follow the money”? When hundreds of thousands of sports fans -- spending millions of dollars -- head to stadiums or turn on their televisions, news organizations respond, big-time. What happens when millions of religious believers -- spending billions -- do the same? Not much. “Usually, where people put their time and money, that’s where their interests are,” Cornell told me in 1982. “Newspapers’ attention and space are supposed to be geared to people’s interests. Right?” The other big mystery, for me, is why professionals who lead newsrooms rarely seek out experienced, even trained, religion reporters. Discussions of this topic often reference a religion-beat opening posted by Washington Post editors in 1994, noting that their “ideal candidate” was “not necessarily religious nor an expert in religion.” Please note the word “ideal.” Try to imagine editors saying their “ideal” candidate to cover the U.S. Supreme Court would be someone who is not an expert in the law. How about similar notices for reporters covering politics, education, sports, science and film? “The religion beat is too complicated today for this kind of approach to be taken seriously,” said Russell Chandler, who
covered religion for years at the Los Angeles Times. I interviewed him for “Blind Spot: When Journalists Don’t Get Religion,” from Oxford Press. “If you don’t have experience you have to pay your dues and get some. Then you have to keep learning so that you get the facts right today and tomorrow and the day after that,” he said. “I have never really understood what this argument is about. It’s like saying that we want to sign up some people for our basketball team and we don’t really care whether or not they can play basketball.” This logic also rings true for Moskos, who noted that he once interviewed five skilled sportswriters when seeking someone to cover University of Tennessee football -- a quasi-religious subject for locals. Why not take that approach to religion news? “If you send somebody out to cover the Oak Ridge National Laboratory,” he concluded, “you’d better find yourself a journalist who knows something about science. ... If people are going to get the job done covering religion then they need to find some journalists who know a thing or two about religion.”
(Terry Mattingly is the director of the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and leads the GetReligion.org project to study religion and the news.)

T-Birds erupt for 11-4 win over Lancers LIMA — The Lima Central Catholic baseball team scored four times in the bottom of the second and five more in the fourth to down Lincolnview 11-4 in Northwest Conference action Thursday at windy Players Field at LCC. The Thunderbirds (5-3, 2-0) built a 6-0 lead in the first two frames. “I was disappointed in our focus and intensity for the game tonight. We had just came off a conference win and had the opportunity to carry some momentum over into a big conference game for us,” Lincolnview coach Kevin Longstreth noted. “We have to be able to beat teams like LCC to ever have a chance to be at the top of the NWC. We started off the first two innings of the game with errors and LCC did what they were supposed to when given extra outs We have to be more consistent with our approaches at the plate and drive in runs when guys get on.” Kyle Williams took the loss for the Lancers (3-6, 1-1 NWC), while Nick Watkins (1-2) got the win for the home team. Troy Patterson went 2-for2 for the visitors and Jalen Roberts (2 runs) 2-for-3, while Williams knocked in two runs. Patteron, Austin Leeth and Nick Leeth each stole a base. Next game for the Lancers in tonight at home against Antwerp with a 5 p.m. first pitch.

three more in the sixth to runrule the Lancers. Shepherd earned the win, going the six innings while giving up four earned runs on eight hits. She struck out four while issuing one walk. McClure took the loss for the Lancers as she gave up 11 runs, all earned, on nine hits. She issued four free passes and a hit batter. The Lancers drop to 6-1 on the season and 0-1 in NWC play. LCC improves to 2-4 overall and 1-0 in conference play. Lincolnview plays host to Antwerp today. ——— Lady ’Dawgs chomp Eagles BENTON RIDGE — Freshman Micheala Black pitched a 2-hit shutout (7 strikeouts, 0 free passes) and helped her cause at the plate with a 3-run homer in the second inning to pace Elida to a 10-0 5-inning rout of Liberty-Benton Thursday in Benton Ridge. Black led the 12-hit attack for the Lady Bulldogs (5-4) with four runs batted in and three hits, while Sabrina Kline added three hits and three RBIs and Taylor Thompson three hits. Caitlin Shroyer added an RBI. The Lady Eagles fall to 3-6. Elida is at St. Marys Memorial 5 p.m. tonight.

the second baseman and right fielder miscommunicated and the ball fell, allowing Griffith to move to third, putting runners on first and third with one out. Elisha Jones followed up with a single to make it a 4-0 game, bringing Hoffman to the plate. Hoffman sent a dribbler back to Neely but the Mustang pitcher air-mailed it to first and sent it down the right-field line, Two batters later, Jay delivered on his second hit of the game, resulting in his second RBI of the contest. Two Bulldog batters later, the bases were loaded again after back to back walks; with Jay on third, Neely delivered a wild pitch, allowing the Grove catcher to score and making it a 5-0 score. Neely was lifted for a relief pitcher (Casey Crow); his first eight pitches were all out of the strike zone, resulting in another Bulldog run. Before striking out Jones to end the inning, Crow plunked Smith with a pitch to bring in another run, making it a 10-0 score with the home team in full control. The Bulldogs added one more in the fourth after Hoffman led off with his second base hit of the game and with 2-out back-to-back walks to Roney and Shafer loaded the bases for the fourth consecutive inning. “That was great to see, especially in the first inning; we had a couple different guys that were maybe struggling a little bit this season, so that was nice to see those guys get some hits. The whole team contributed in some way. That’s what you want; everybody to contribute and we did that tonight,” King commented. The Bulldogs’ patience at the plate enabled them to load the bases in every inning with Mustang pitching delivering 10 walks and a hit batsman. Columbus Grove improves to 6-1 overall and 1-0 in the NWC, while the Mustangs drop to 3-5 and 0-2. Grove visits Spencerville 5 p.m. tonight (weather permitting).

Reds beat Marlins for 4th straight win
The Associated Press CINCINNATI — Tony Cingrani might have been a little too relaxed for his first big-league start. With the way the Reds have been hitting, that’s understandable. Shin-Soo Choo singled, doubled and scored twice, helping Cingrani get a victory in his starting debut as the Reds won their fourth in a row by beating the Miami Marlins 11-1 on Thursday night. Cincinnati’s winning streak has featured stingy starting pitching. The 23-yearold Cingrani needed a lot of pitches but kept up the trend. “If anything, I might’ve been a little too relaxed,” he said. “It’s a different mindset. Around the fifth, I started feeling comfortable. Giving up one run in five innings is not too bad.” The left-hander gave up five hits, including Justin Ruggiano’s homer, while striking out eight and throwing 102 pitches. Reds manager Dusty Baker gave him a congratulatory handshake and a big smile when he reached the dugout after fanning Greg Dobbs to end the fifth. Cingrani got the better of a matchup of two up-and-coming starters. Right-hander Jose Fernandez (0-1) lasted only four innings, giving up five runs and seven hits while taking his first big-league loss. “It’s not going to be the last time,” Fernandez said. “I’ll just try to get better.” Miami fell to 3-13, worst in the majors. The Marlins have been shut out or limited to one run in nine games. Rightfielder Giancarlo Stanton was back in the lineup after missing six games with a bruised left shoulder. He committed two errors, including one that let a run score. It was the right time and place for Cincinnati to start a rookie. The Reds have the best home record in the majors at 8-2. And they’ve been on quite a splurge offensively. They’ve scored 22 runs with 27 hits in their last two games. It’s the first time they’ve had back-to-back games with at least 11 runs since they beat Houston 12-2 and 15-6 at Great American Ball Park in 2010. Cingrani didn’t have to be sensational to come out a winner. “He gave us what we needed and we gave him what he needed,” Baker said. The 20-year-old Fernandez had allowed only one run in his first two major-league starts, giving up a total of five hits to the Mets and Phillies. He fanned Choo on a 97-mph fastball to open the Reds’ first, quite a start. Didn’t do so well the second time through the order. Choo and Zack Cozart singled with two outs in the third. Fernandez threw a wild pitch that allowed Choo to score from third. It fell apart for Fernandez in the fourth, when Cincinnati sent eight batters to the plate for four runs. The Reds put together a walk, three singles, Choo’s RBI double and a sacrifice fly by Devin Mesoraco for a 5-1 lead, ending Fernandez’s outing. “He’s got great stuff,” manager Mike Redmond said. “The big leagues are tough. It’s tough to pitch. We’ve got scouts, we’ve got video. Believe me, it’s not like he’s a secret. The word is out.” Todd Frazier added a 2-run
LCC softball slugs past Lincolnview LIMA - The Lincolnview Lady Lancer softball team traveled to Lima Central Catholic Thunderbird country Thursday, and came out on the wrong end of a 14-4 slugfest last. The Lancers struck first when Kaitlyn Brant lined a single to left field. Devann Springer then deposited a 1-2 pitch deep into the parking lot to give the visitors an early 2-0 lead. LCC came right back in the bottom half of the first as Shasha Santaguida delivered a bomb of her own to left center to move the home squad to within one. LCC jumped right back into the scoring column in the second when it tallied four runs on four hits and two freebies. LCC’s lead after two complete - 5-2. Lincolnview responded in the top of the third with two more runs as Brant reached on an error and Springer ripped a solid single to left. Baylee Neate then took one for the team as she was hit by the pitch to load the bases. A groundout force at home provided the second out of the inning before Autumn Proctor stepped to the plate. She stung a single to left to score one but leftfielder Molly Clemente threw a strike to home to nail a would-be tally. LCC led 5-4 after three. Lima Central extended the lead as they tallied five runs in the fifth. A run scored and leadoff hitter Meredith Neise then unloaded the bases with a bomb to the parking lot and end the day for Lancer hurler Ashley McClure. McClure’s counterpart, Meredith Shepherd, shut down the Lancer offense the rest of the way to garner the win. The T-Bird offense scored
The Associated Press OTTAWA — Kyle Turris scored twice and the Ottawa Senators ended Washington’s winning streak at eight games with a 3-1 victory over the Capitals on Thursday night. Cory Conacher also scored and Craig Anderson made 18 saves to help the Senators win their fourth straight game and move within a point of Toronto (53) for fifth place in the Eastern Conference. Mike Ribeiro scored and Braden Holtby stopped 35 shots for the Southeast Division-leading Capitals, who hadn’t lost since a
Grove softballers edge Mustangs 6-4 COLUMBUS GROVE — Allen East’s softball crew jumped out to an early advantage against Columbus Grove Thursday afternoon. After the first inning, the Mustang offense stalled and when the Bulldogs pushed across five runs over two innings, it was enough for Columbus Grove to claim a 6-4 Northwest Conference win. This was the NWC opener for the Bulldogs as they moved to 5-1 on the season. The Mustangs dropped to 1-1 in conference play and 6-4 overall. Allen East grabbed a 3-0 first inning lead as Alex Mertz, Erin Conkle and Madison Schantz all safely reached with base hits to give the Mustangs a 2-0 lead before Kaycee Rowe followed with a single to left that made it 3-0. The Bulldogs answered back in the bottom of the inning with a run as Monica Delgado had an RBI single to center. Although both teams had chances to put additional runs on the scoreboard in the next two innings, the starting pitchers worked out of jams. In the bottom of the fourth inning, the Mustangs were unable to avoid trouble as the Bulldogs pushed across three runs to take the lead. Micah Stechschulte and Haley Grigsby reached to start the inning before Allen East got an out. Kyrah Yinger reached on an error before Bobbie Heckel lined a runscoring single to left field. Two passed balls played into the scoring as the Bulldogs took a 4-3 lead to the fifth. After Heckel stranded a base-runner at second in the top of the fifth, the Bulldogs added two runs to their lead in the bottom half as Hope Schroeder lined a double to deep left field to start the inning and Delgado followed
5-4 setback in overtime at Philadelphia on March 31. Washington’s lead over Winnipeg in the division was trimmed to two points after the Jets beat Carolina 4-3. While Anderson was rarely tested, he did make some timely saves to bail out his team in the third. With the Senators holding a 2-1 lead midway through the final period, Anderson made a huge save on Eric Fehr when he skated in on net all alone.

Lester pitches Red Sox to 6th straight win, 6-3
The Associated Press CLEVELAND — Even after extending their winning streak to six games on Thursday, the Boston Red Sox had something more on their minds as they packed up for the flight home. They will reunite with their fans for the first time since Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon when they host the Kansas City Royals tonight. “It’s going to be great,” said Jon Lester, who pitched seven strong innings in Boston’s 6-3 win. “Maybe for a couple of hours it can get back to being Boston and watching a baseball game and not thinking about all the other things. Hopefully, we’ll be able to do that.” The Red Sox paid tribute to their home city by hanging a “617 Boston Strong” jersey in their dugout throughout their 3-game sweep of the Indians. “We feel a sense that we can contribute to a communal spirit and hopefully create a little bit of a diversion for those affected directly,” manager John Farrell said. “We’re certainly not going to replace what happened — I think maybe we may have a way of helping getting back to some sense of normalcy.” Clay Buchholz, today’s scheduled starter, is looking forward to taking the mound at Fenway Park. “I’m sort of lost for words for everything,” he said. “I don’t really know how
Bulldogs pummel Mustangs in NWC By Dave Boninsegna The Delphos Herald email@example.com COLUMBUS GROVE — Rain had hampered the area for most of the week but Thursday afternoon at Columbus Grove, the weather cooperated long enough for the Bulldogs and Allen East Mustangs to battled it out in Northwest Conference baseball play. However, it might have been in the Mustangs’ best interest for the showers to have come as the hosts took command from the first pitch of the game when Blake Hoffman hit the first pitch he saw for a double. The Bulldogs scored 11 runs on eight hits, while Grove pitcher Trey Roney held the guests to just three hits as the ’Dogs blanked Allen East 11-0 in a run-ruled 5-inning game. Roney went the distance on the mound for the Bulldogs, while helping his own cause at the plate as well, reaching four times with a pair of walks, a fielder’s choice and a single. The senior struck out two and walked two, while throwing just 56 pitches. “You expect him (Trey) to go out there and throw strikes and challenge hitters; that’s exactly what he did tonight. He threw strikes. He maybe walked one or two but he did exactly what we asked him to do. He’s not a strikeout type of guy, so we have to play good defense behind him,” Columbus Grove coach Cory King stated. For the hosts, Matt Jay was 2-for-3 with a pair of runs batted in, Brady Shafer reached base all four times he made a trip to the dish: three free passes and a fielder’s choice. Allen East pitcher Erik Neely had his pitching woes from the get-go; after the Hoffman leadoff 2-bagger, the Mustang hurler gave up hits to Jay and Kody Griffith. Josh Verhoff capped off the 9-batter inning with a double a batter after Roney reached on a hit, giving the home team a 3-0 edge after the first inning. Grove sent 13 batters to the plate in the third, scoring seven times on just three hits. It started off with a walk to Griffith, followed by Verhoff reaching on a error by the third baseman. Mason Smith followed with a strange infield fly-rule out; the ball started out in the infield but thanks to the wind, by the time in came down it was in short right but

The crowd was announced at 18,341 as the Rockies matched a team record for the coldest home start. A game against the Montreal Expos on April 12, 1997, was played in a similarly frigid conditions. A pair of Mets-Rockies games in the previous three days were postponed because of heavy snow. Garland (2-0) allowed two runs and six hits. He walked none and struck out four. Troy Tulowitzki homered and hit a go-ahead single off Jonathon Niese (2-1). Dexter Fowler and Josh Rutledge also hit home runs as the Rockies won their sixth straight home game. BREWERS 7, GIANTS 2 MILWAUKEE — Yovani Gallardo homered and struck out six in his first start since being arrested on a drunken driving charge and the Milwaukee Brewers beat San Francisco for a 3-game sweep. Gallardo (1-1) was arrested early Tuesday morning. The right-hander allowed five hits, one walk and one earned run in six innings. Milwaukee won its season-high fourth in a row after a 1-8 skid. Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy also homered for Milwaukee, which swept the Giants for the first time since July 18-20, 2008. San Francisco fell to 0-4 when Matt Cain (0-2) pitches. CARDINALS 4, PHILLIES 3 PHILADELPHIA — Carlos Beltran hit a go-ahead homer in the eighth, Adam Wainwright pitched seven solid innings and the St. Louis Cardinals held on to beat the Philadelphia Phillies. Philadelphia put runners at first and third with no outs in the ninth against Edward Mujica but the fill-in closer retired three straight batters for his first save. The Phillies lost their fourth in a row. Wainwright (3-1) gave up three runs and nine hits while striking out four and walking none. Beltran broke a 3-all tie with one out in the eighth when he hit an opposite-field homer to left off Mike Adams (0-1). BRAVES 6, PIRATES 4 PITTSBURGH — Pinch-hitter Evan Gattis connected for a tie-breaking, 2-run homer in the eighth inning and the Atlanta Braves beat the Pittsburgh Pirates. Atlanta brothers B.J. and Justin Upton homered in the same game for the second time this season as the Braves kept up their torrid play. Atlanta improved to a major leaguebest 13-2 after Gattis hit a sinker from Jared Hughes (1-1) into the left-field bleachers for the first pinch-hit homer of his career. Justin Upton leads the majors with nine home runs. Anthony Varvaro (1-0) won in relief of starter Julio Teheran. Craig Kimbrel worked a perfect ninth for his seventh save. INTERLEAGUE CUBS 6, RANGERS 2 CHICAGO — Alfonso Soriano hit his first home run of the season, Anthony Rizzo also homered and the Chicago Cubs beat the Texas Rangers at a soggy Wrigley Field. Despite torrential rains that caused citywide floods, the teams were able to play in an occasional drizzle. The Cubs and Texas were rained out Wednesday. Rizzo hit a 2-run homer in the third inning and Soriano followed with a shot that gave the Cubs a 5-0 lead against Alexi Ogando (2-1). Soriano’s homer accounted for his first RBI of the season. Welington Castillo added a careerhigh four hits as Chicago ended its 3-game losing streak.
homer off John Maine as the Reds pulled away. The Marlins came in with a .209 batting average, 32 runs and three homers, all the lowest marks in the majors. The series opener on Thursday represented a chance to nudge those numbers up — facing a rookie pitcher in a homer-friendly ballpark with the wind blowing out to left field. Ruggiano hit a solo shot to left in the fourth, making him the first Marlins player with more than one homer this season. He was the only Marlin to reach third base. Cingrani made three relief appearances for the Reds last September and was first in line for a promotion if the Reds needed a starter. He took the place of Johnny Cueto, who went on the 15-day disabled list.
to comprehend a bunch of it. “But it’s going to be a special day for everybody. I think that goes above and beyond it being another baseball game. It’s going to be the city of Boston and what the Red Sox are about.” While their minds may have been on the tragedy in their home city, Red Sox outscored Cleveland 19-8 in the series with solid starting pitching, excellent work from the bullpen and timely hitting. Lester (3-0) held the Indians to two runs and four hits while Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a tibreaking home run in the fourth. Daniel Nava had two RBIs while Saltalamacchia, Dustin Pedroia, Mike Napoli and Mike Carp each drove in a run. See LESTER, page 7

Is there a challenge for Heat in NBA playoffs?
By BRIAN MAHONEY The Asssociated Press Looking for a reason not to pick the Miami Heat to win another NBA title? Don’t check the odds, where the Heat are such an overwhelming favorite that it might as well be Tiger Woods against a weekend hacker. Definitely don’t bother with the Heat’s results, which show exactly three losses since the start of February. And certainly don’t look on the court, where LeBron James sent seasonlong reminders that he’s better than ever and already the best in the world. The only people who might really believe in caution are the Heat themselves. “There’s going to be trials and tribulations no matter what, no matter how good of a team you are,” Dwyane Wade said. “There’s going to be a moment in the playoffs where our back is going to be against the wall. And I think everything we’ve done this season will prepare us for that moment. We have a goal, just like every other team that gets into the playoffs, to win a championship. But we understand the process that it takes.” It starts Saturday, when the playoffs start with four first-round games. The Heat will open Sunday against Milwaukee in what’s expected to be a quick series. Then it will be up to someone like the Knicks, Thunder, Spurs, or some other contender, to prove that the next two months aren’t just a formality. “They’ve had the best record and they’re the defending champs, so they’re the team to beat, but I don’t think it’s much beyond that,” Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo said. “I mean, give them their due. They have the best record and they’re the defending champs, so they’re the team that you need to beat, but no, I don’t think anybody is head and shoulders over any. There’s too many good teams.” New York, which won three out of four from Miami, hosts Boston on Saturday in the playoff opener. The Nets welcome Chicago for the first postseason game in Brooklyn, while the Western Conference has Golden State visiting Denver and the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies squaring off in a first-round rematch. On Sunday, the Los Angeles Lakers go to San Antonio without Kobe Bryant and defending West champ Oklahoma City faces former Thunder star James Harden and Houston. Indiana and Atlanta meet in the other East game. Miami went 66-16 and has been so dominant since Super Bowl Sunday that the betting site Bovada gave the Heat opening odds to win the championship that it said were “unheard of in recent years” — and then already had to lower them when most of the action was coming in on the Heat, anyway. That dropped Miami to a 2-to-3 favorite, meaning a $3 bet only won $2 more. The Heat were 2-to-9 favorites to win the East, where Indiana and Chicago also beat them multiple times during the regular season. Knicks center Tyson Chandler said the other contenders shouldn’t feel slighted by all the experts that are picking the Heat. “No, not at all. They should pick the Heat,” he added. “They’re the defending champions and they should get that respect. But that’s not what we believe. We haven’t believed in that throughout the year. But they should get that respect because they’ve earned it.” Miami faced plenty of adversity during last season’s championship run. They were down 2-1 to Indiana in the second round, with Wade struggling and Chris Bosh injured. The Celtics took a 3-2 lead in the conference finals back to Boston before James fought off elimination with a 45-point performance in Game 6 and the Thunder took the opener of the NBA Finals and nearly rallied two nights later to put the Heat in a 2-0 hole. But this version of the Heat is much better and certainly miles above the team that lost in the 2011 finals in the first season with its Big Three. With Ray Allen, Chris Andersen and Rashard Lewis, the Heat have added players who won games for them even when they chose to rest their superstars down the stretch. “It’s a challenge. Look, these guys are really good. They’re the world champions,” Milwaukee coach Jim Boylan said. “Dwyane Wade has won multiple NBA championships, LeBron is going to win multiple NBA championships before it’s all over and let’s not forget Chris Bosh and Ray Allen and all the other guys, too. Shane Battier. Great players. They present a large, large number of problems.” There is much more intrigue out West, especially in the two series involving Los Angeles teams. The Clippers and Grizzlies went seven games last year before the Clippers advanced; this time they have the home-court advantage. The Lakers didn’t

even clinch a playoff spot until Wednesday but won their final five games and look dangerous even without Bryant thanks to the inside play of Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol. The Lakers and Spurs had one of the NBA’s best postseason rivalries in the last decade and this one could join their list of memorable series. “We’re happy that we’re in the playoffs but we’re not done yet,” Howard said. The highlight in the East could be in the Boston-New York series. The Knicks ended the Celtics’ 5-year reign as Atlantic Division champions with their first division title since 1994, with Carmelo Anthony leading the NBA with 28.7 points per game. New York will have to fight off a No. 7 seed hoping it still has a run left with Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett and trying to give a lift to a hurting city after the Boston Marathon bombings. “They’ve been around. They’ve won. They have a lot of experience,” Anthony said. “I think that was one of the reasons that we put together this team that we have with the experience that we have with some of the guys on this team. So right now we want to continue the way that we’ve been playing.” The winner could emerge as the best hope in the East to beat the Heat — if there is such a thing. Count former NBA coach and ESPN analyst Flip Saunders among those who doubt there is, adding Wednesday on a conference call that he doesn’t “see anyone challenging them. “They’ve really been off the charts and the way LeBron is playing, there’s teams that are going to be able to beat them a game or two — maybe — but I can’t see anyone that has the ability to beat them four games in a row.”

(Continued from Page 6) Indians manager Terry Francona, who managed in Boston for eight seasons and led the Red Sox to World Series titles in 2004 and 2007, was swept in the first series against his former team. Cleveland has lost four straight. “If they pitch like that, they’re going to give a lot of people trouble,” Francona said. Zach McAllister (1-2) allowed three runs in five innings. Andrew Bailey pitched the ninth for his second save. The Red Sox are expected to have designated hitter David Ortiz in the lineup for the first time this season today in what surely will be a heart-felt evening as Boston continues the healing process after Monday’s tragedy. “I imagine it will be pretty emotional for some people,= but at the same time we’re going to go out there and give them a good effort and show them we care and we’re playing for them,” Lester added. The Indians, who went 2-6 on their first homestand, open a 10-game trip today in Houston. Cleveland’s struggling offense has scored nine runs in the losing streak. Lester, who struck out five and walked one, has won his first three decisions for the third time in his career. Saltalamacchia’s 2-out homer broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth. The line drive to right landed in Boston’s bullpen and came after McAllister struck out Nava and Jonny Gomes to start the inning. After Saltalamacchia’s home run put the Red Sox ahead for good, Pedroia’s run-scoring single in the fifth gave
(Continued from Page 6)
Boston a 2-run lead. The Red Sox put it away with a 3-run seventh. The second inning started when Napoli’s wind-blown fly ball drifted over the head of rightfielder Ryan Raburn, who missed on a leaping attempt at the wall. The ball rolled back toward the infield and the slow-footed Napoli lumbered into third. Mike Aviles’ RBI groundout tied the game in the bottom of the inning. Mark Reynolds led off with a double, took third on a fly ball and scored on Aviles’ grounder to short. Napoli, who has a 7-game hitting streak, was 6-for-15 with six RBIs, three doubles, a triple and three runs scored in the series. Jacoby Ellsbury started the fifthinning rally with a double and stopped at third on Shane Victorino’s single. Pedroia lined a 3-2 pitch to right that scored Ellsbury. Bailey, who also saved Wednesday’s game, retired all six batters he faced in the two appearances.
NOTES: Ortiz, who is nursing a sore Achilles, homered Thursday in the final game of a rehab assignment at Triple-A Pawtucket. Rookie OF Jackie Bradley Jr., in an 0-for-20 slump, will likely be sent to Pawtucket when Ortiz is activated. … Francona said 2B Jason Kipnis (sore left elbow) could return to the lineup today against Houston. Kipnis missed his fifth straight game Thursday. AMERICAN LEAGUE ORIOLES 10, RAYS 6, 10 INNINGS BALTIMORE — Matt Wieters hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 10th inning and Baltimore withstood four solo homers by Tampa Bay. Nolan Reimold and Steve Pearce also homered for the Orioles. It was Baltimore’s 17th straight extrainning victory, including 16 last season. After Nick Markakis led off the 10th with a single against Jamey Wright (0-1), Brandon Gomes came in to face Manny Machado, who reached on a bunt single that hugged the first-base line. Adam Jones followed with a long single to the warning track that eluded rightfielder Ben Zobrist but Markakis held up
at second and could only make it to third. Wieters drove Gomes’ next pitch over the right-field wall. It was Baltimore’s first game-ending grand slam since Harold Baines did it against the Chicago White Sox on May 4, 1999. Troy Patton (1-0) worked the 10th for Baltimore. Desmond Jennings and Evan Longoria homered for the Rays in the first inning, Jose Molina connected in the sixth and James Loney went deep in the eighth against Darren O’Day to knot the score at 6. Tampa Bay starter David Price, the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner, walked off the mound with the lead but remained winless in four starts this season. BLUE JAYS 3, WHITE SOX 1 TORONTO — R.A. Dickey threw six shutout innings before leaving with soreness in his neck and back during Toronto’s victory over Chicago. Dickey (2-2) retired his first 11 batters and allowed two hits, both singles. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner walked one, struck out a season-high seven and lowered his ERA from 5.82 to 4.30. Esmil Rogers got four outs and Casey Janssen finished for his fifth save. Rajai Davis sparked the Blue Jays’ offense with two stolen bases and an RBI double. Chris Sale (1-2) allowed three runs, two earned, and four hits over seven innings. Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista missed his fourth straight game with a sore back. MARINERS 2, TIGERS 0 SEATTLE — Kyle Seager hit a 2-out RBI double off Justin Verlander in the seventh inning to break a scoreless tie and help Seattle beat Detroit. Verlander (2-2) threw 126 pitches in seven innings. He struck out 12 and gave up nine hits. Endy Chavez followed Seager’s double with a run-scoring single. Carter Capps (1-1) worked two innings in relief of starter Hisashi Iwakuma for his first major-league win. Tom Wilhelmsen earned his sixth save. INTERLEAGUE DIAMONDBACKS 6, YANKEES 2, 12 INNINGS NEW YORK — Cody Ross hit a go-ahead single in the 12th inning, Eric Chavez followed with a 3-run double against his former team and Arizona beat New York after one fan came up with two home run balls, including Francesco Cervelli’s tying drive in the ninth. Yankees failed to complete a 3-game sweep after learning captain Derek Jeter fractured his left ankle and will be sidelined until after the All-Star break. On a strange night that included a pair of catcher’s interference calls against Cervelli, Robinson Cano started New York’s comeback from a 2-0 deficit with a sixth-inning homer off Patrick Corbin. David Phelps (0-1) escaped trouble in the 11th, but couldn’t do it again an inning later.
KINGS 2, BLUE JACKETS 1 LOS ANGELES — Kyle Clifford scored the tiebreaking goal, Jonathan Quick made 20 saves and Los Angeles beat Columbus to slow the Blue Jackets’ late-season surge. Drew Doughty scored an early power-play goal for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who kept pace with San Jose for fourth place in the West by snapping Columbus’ 5-game winning streak. Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 21 shots and Dalton Prout scored his first NHL goal for the eighth-place Blue Jackets, who lost for the first time in four stops on their 6-game trip. Columbus, which was last in the NHL on Feb. 25 but is 16-5-5 since, leads Detroit and Dallas by two points in the race for the final playoff spot in the conference. STARS 5, CANUCKS 1 DALLAS — Cody Eakin, Jamie Benn and Ray Whitney scored goals early in the third period to break open a tie game before Dallas cruised to a victory over Vancouver. Vernon Fiddler and Erik Cole also found the back of the net and Kari Lehtonen stopped 37 shots for the Stars, who are 6-1-0 in their last seven games. Dallas moved into a tie with Detroit for ninth in the West, two points behind Columbus for the eighth and final playoff spot in the conference. The Stars have five games remaining, including one against the Blue Jackets in Dallas on April 25 and the finale against Detroit at home on April 27. Derek Roy, who Dallas traded at the April 2 deadline, scored for Vancouver. CANADIENS 3, LIGHTNING 2 MONTREAL — Brian Gionta scored his second goal of the game with 47 seconds left in regulation and Montreal snapped a 3-game skid with a victory over Tampa Bay. Gionta was at the left post and sent a rebound off the end boards into the net for the winner. Alex Galchenyuk also scored for the Canadiens, who had been outscored 18-8 in their three previous outings. Richard Panik and Vincent Lecavalier scored for Tampa Bay, which is winless in its last five games and has only one victory in its last eight. It was Montreal’s first win since clinching a playoff
spot last week. SHARKS 6, WILD 1 SAN JOSE, Calif. — Marty Havlat scored twice against his former team and San Jose closed in on a ninth straight playoff berth with a win Minnesota — its most lopsided victory of the season. Logan Couture added two goals and two assists, and Raffi Torres and Joe Pavelski also scored for the Sharks, who have won three straight to remain tied for fourth place with Los Angeles in the race for home-ice advantage in the first round of the West playoffs. Antti Niemi made 26 saves in his 22nd straight start. Pierre-Marc Bouchard scored the lone goal for the Wild, who dropped behind St. Louis into seventh place in the conference. Minnesota has a 4-point lead over ninth-place Dallas and Detroit. ISLANDERS 5, MAPLE LEAFS 3 TORONTO — John Tavares had two goals and an assist as New York rallied past Toronto to move within two points of the Maple Leafs for fifth place in the East. The Islanders overcame an early 2-0 deficit to win the first of five straight road games they will play to end the regular season. New York improved to 13-5-2 away from home, earning its fifth win in six games while seeking a playoff berth for the first time since 2007. Brad Boyes, with a goal and two assists, Matt Moulson and Frans Nielsen also scored for New York. Cody Franson, Joffrey Lupul and Dion Phaneuf scored for the Leafs, who were solidly outshot 38-21. Phil Kessel, appearing in his 500th career NHL game, added three assists. BLUES 2, COYOTES 1, SO ST. LOUIS — Brian Elliott stopped all three chances in a shootout for the second straight game, bouncing back after a late goal denied him a fourth shutout this month, and St. Louis beat Phoenix to move a step closer to a playoff berth. Radim Vrbata’s power-play goal tied it with 1:07 to go for the Coyotes. Vrbata capitalized on a boarding penalty against Blues captain David Backes. Andy McDonald was the first to go in the shootout and got the only goal, beating Chad Johnson. David Perron scored in regulation for the Blues, who have scored two or fewer goals in 12 of their last 16 games. They’ve won 10 of those games thanks to
tight defense and strong play in goal. RANGERS 6, PANTHERS 1 NEW YORK — Rick Nash had a goal and assist in the first period and Ryan Callahan had a pair of assists as New York hung on to eighth place in the East with a victory over Florida. Derick Brassard and Nash both scored powerplay goals, with help from Callahan in the first, and Mats Zuccarello found the net for the second straight game to give the playoff-hopeful Rangers their sixth win in nine games (6-2-1). New York had a lackluster 4-2 loss at Philadelphia on Tuesday that allowed Winnipeg to get even in points in the tight Eastern race. The Rangers (22-174) have five games left. Jonathan Huberdeau scored in the second period for Florida. JETS 4, HURRICANES 3, OT WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Dustin Byfuglien scored 1:23 into overtime and Winnipeg beat Carolina to continued its hunt for a playoff berth with a seasonhigh fifth straight win. Byfuglien beat Justin Peters off a rebound from a shot by Andrew Ladd, who finished with three assists. Blake Wheeler had a goal and two assists and Zach Bogosian and Paul Postma also scored for the Jets, who moved within two points of first-place Washington in the Southeast Division. Washington, which lost 3-1 to Ottawa, has 50 points. The Jets and eight-place Rangers are tied with 48,but New York has played one fewer game. Tuomo Ruutu scored twice and Alexander Semin added a goal for Carolina. DEVILS 3, FLYERS 0 HILADELPHIA — Martin Brodeur stopped 23 shots for his 121st career shutout, helping to keep New Jersey’s slim playoff hopes alive with a win over Philadelphia. Ryan Carter, Matt D’Agostini and Adam Henrique scored to help the Devils snap a 10-game winless streak (0-6-4). New Jersey came in eight points out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the East and has five games left, leaving the Devils in need of serious help to make the postseason. Brodeur wasn’t seriously tested all game but did enough to earn his second shutout of the season. It was also the NHL’s all-time wins leader’s 11th career shutout against the Flyers, who fell one point back of New Jersey in the standings.

SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 2013 Your earning potential could greatly increase in coming months. Your current cycle points to several sources creating multiple opportunities for gain. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- As long as you don’t create obstacles for yourself, you can be a leader in an endeavor that is theoretically controlled by someone else. Don’t be afraid to step up. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your potential for success is exceptionally good, as long as you don’t overthink things. The secret is to focus on where you want to go. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Priority should be given to a situation that would either enhance your career or add to your resources. Look to these areas to get the results you desire. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Knowledge that you recently gained can be used to your advantage. However, it’s important not to discuss your intentions with anybody. Just do what needs to be done. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- To get anything done today, you must be bold as well as enterprising. Don’t take time to palaver or discuss matters with others -- just dive in with both feet. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If you subdue your self-interest and try to do things that will provide the greatest good for the biggest number, you’ll come out on top. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Conditions are exceptionally good for fulfilling one of your more ambitious objectives. Set your sights on your target and let nothing distract you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Take some time out of your busy schedule for exercise. Physical exertion will invigorate not only your body, but your mind as well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Instead of waiting for fortune to bring good things to your doorstep, make things happen yourself. You have the power to write your own destiny. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- How well you perform is likely to be determined by the company you keep. If you get involved with some movers and shakers, you’ll mirror their behavior. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Because you’re presently in a fruitful cycle, you could reap some substantial results from your entrepreneurial endeavors. Focus on involvements that could be financially meaningful. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -You’ll become the motivating force in an arrangement that is now being handled by another. This person will be totally prepared to take a backseat and let you do the driving. COPYRIGHT 2013 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.
