Cardinals Crush Reds In Rubber Match

The Cardinals hit four home runs and got a complete-game shutout from Jake Westbrook to beat the Reds 10-0 at Busch Stadium. Jon Jay, Carlos Beltran, Matt Adams and Matt Carpenter all reached the seats for the Redbirds, who took two-of-three from Cincinnati. Westbrook threw a five-hitter.

The Cardinals enjoy an off-day today. They open a three-game series tomorrow night against the division-rival Brewers at Busch Stadium. Shelby Miller is slated to oppose former Cardinal Kyle Lohse, who signed with Milwaukee just last month. The Brewers are off to a 2-and-6 start.

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Union Senior Bethany Coons. Bethany finished the basketball season at Union averaging 11 points and eight assists per game. Coach Dusty Weiskopf says Bethany is good at handling the basketball and teams would find it difficult to press Union when Bethany was in the game because of her lateral movement. When combining her scoring and assist averages, Bethany was contributing about 25 points per game.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
