Haith Leaves Missouri
Missouri coach Frank Haith has verbally agreed to become the next coach at Tulsa, a source close to the situation said Thursday. Haith, who traveled to Tulsa on Thursday afternoon to finalize the deal, will replace Danny Manning, who left for Wake Forest earlier this month. A surprise hire by Missouri out of Miami three years ago, Haith led the Tigers to the NCAA tournament in two of his three seasons. He had a 76-28 record at Missouri. While Missouri plays in the high-profile SEC, Tulsa might be a more stable situation for Haith. The Golden Hurricane went 17-16 and played in the CBI tournament two years ago. This past season, Tulsa improved to 21-13, won the Conference USA tournament and reached the NCAA tournament with a young team. Next season, the Golden Hurricane will be moving to the American Athletic Conference, which includes national champion Connecticut.
Royals Sweep Astros
James Shields struck out 12 in eight innings and the Kansas City Royals completed a three-game sweep of the Houston Astros with a 5-1 win on Thursday night. Shields (1-2) gave up one run and four hits, all singles.  He got back to his winning ways after seeing his nine-game road victory streak snapped in his last start at Minnesota when sloppy defense led to six unearned runs in a 7-1 loss. Houston’s Scott Feldman (2-1) yielded four earned runs and nine hits in six innings. The Royals are back home tonight for a weekend home stand against the Minnsesota time is 7:10pm.
Cards Beat Nationals
Adam Wainwright threw a two-hitter Thursday night for his seventh career shutout, chipped in at the plate with a double and single, and St. Louis benefited from four errors by Washington in the Cardinals' 8-0 victory. Wainwright (3-1) allowed Ian Desmond's infield single in the second inning and Adam LaRoche's single to right in the ninth. He struck out eight and walked three. During one dominant stretch, the runner-up for the 2013 NL Cy Young award retired 18 consecutive batters. This was the right-hander's 17th complete game and his fourth two-hitter. The Cards and Nationals play again tonight…game time is 6:05pm
Blues Win In Triple OT
And…Alexander Steen scored at 26 seconds of the third overtime to give the St. Louis Blues a 4-3 victory over the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night. Steen beat Corey Crawford off a pair of short passes from Steve Ott and David Backes to cap the longest overtime game in franchise history. Both teams face a short turnaround with Game 2 Saturday afternoon.
