Cardinals Club Cubs

Adam Wainwright bolstered his NL Cy Young resume as the Cardinals clobbered the Cubs 6-2 at Busch Stadium. Wainwright allowed two hits and a walk over five-and-third innings to improve to 19-and-9. Matt Holliday hit a two-run home run for St. Louis, which has a one-game lead on Atlanta for the National League's top record. Yadier Molina was 2-for-2 with a pair of RBI and a run scored in the win. Seth Maness picked up his first save. Edwin Jackson gave up six runs in under three innings for the loss. He left early with lat discomfort on his right side. Anthony Rizzo lifted a solo shot for Chicago, which dropped to 66-and-95.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

1 week 2 days ago

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
