Hello, and Happy Friday everybody it's Tyler Henry back with another KINA Sports Update presented by Salina Regional Orthopedic and Sports Medicine.

On Thursday, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice surrendered to police on charges including aggravated assault, after he and another driver of a speeding sports car allegedly caused a crash involving a half dozen vehicles on a Dallas highway last month.

A spokeswoman for Rice's attorney confirmed to the Associated Press Thursday evening that Rice turned himself into the Glenn Heights Police Department. Rice was booked into the Regional Jail in DeSoto and was released on bond on Thursday night.

Meanwhile, in Kansas City, Bobby Witt Jr. had four hits including two home runs and five RBI as the Kansas City Royals used a nine-run first inning to defeat the Houston Astros 13-3  on Thursday, completing the three game sweep and extending their win streak to seven games. 

Vinnie Pasquantino who came into Wednesday's game hitting just 108 with no RBI was three for five with three driven in and it's now batting .222 with eight driven it.

And finally speaking of diamond sports today, two of the hottest softball teams in the state of Kansas will collide at 3 p.m.  as the Southeast of Saline Lady Trojans prepare to host the Chapman Lady Irish in Gypsum.

SES will look to remain undefeated while the Irish look to extend an impressive 6-2 start and both games will be broadcast on demand after the contests are complete on our YouTube page and on Salina Post.
