New Bemidji State Track and Cross Country Coach Kevin Kean will be introduced at a press conference tomorrow. Kean is coming off his third season as the assistant track and field coach at NCAA Division II Tiffin University, where he has been responsible for training the multi-event athletes and jumpers. Kean takes over for Craig Hougen who retired after last season. The press conference tomorrow will air on 1300 The Sports Fox at 1pm.
Eric Hosmer drove in Lorenzo Cain with nobody out in the ninth inning, helping the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 3-2 on Sunday for a split of their four-game series. Cain drew a leadoff walk against Twins reliever Blaine Boyer (2-4) to start the ninth after Ervin Santana had nearly shut Kansas City down in his return from a drug suspension. Twins manager Paul Molitor called upon Aaron Thompson to face Hosmer, who ripped a pitch down the right-field line. Cain sprinted around third base at full speed, and a throw from Torii Hunter in right field was nowhere close to getting him at the plate. Phil Hughes starts in the opener of a three-game series against Baltimore tonight.
Although he has texted he is looking forward to playing with the Vikings this season, at least one source is reporting cornerback Josh Robinson has a torn pectoral muscle. E-S-P-N is reporting the injury happened during the team's June mini-camp. The severity of the injury hasn't be released. Robinson has been a regular on the Viking defense since he was drafted in the third round of the 2012 N-F-L Draft.
