Beltran Helps Cards Crush Mets

Carlos Beltran went 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBI as the Cardinals crushed the Mets 10-4 at Busch Stadium. Jon Jay also homered for St. Louis, which built a 9-0 lead in the fifth inning. Filling in for Jake Westbrook, John Gast pitched five shutout innings before giving up a four-spot in the sixth to win his big league debut.

The Cardinals and Mets play the third of their four-game series at Busch Stadium tonight. Shelby Miller puts his 5-and-2 mark on the line for St. Louis, while New York counters with 0-and-3 Shaun Marcum. Miller is coming off a complete-game, one-hitter in which he struck out 13 and walked none in a 3-0 victory over the Rockies last Friday.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

3 weeks 1 day ago

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
