Cardinals Double Up Dodgers, Take Commanding NLCS Lead

Matt Holliday hit a two-run homer in the third and the Cardinals held on for a 4-2 win over the Dodgers in Game Four of the NL Championship Series from Dodger Stadium. Shane Robinson added a pinch-hit solo homer in the seventh for St. Louis, which now holds a commanding three-games-to-one lead in the best-of-seven set. Matt Carpenter opened the scoring with an RBI double while Lance Lynn pitched five-and-a-third innings of two-run ball to get the win. Trevor Rosenthal closed it out for the save and the Cards will look to close out the series in Game Five this afternoon.

The Boston Red Sox have the upper hand in the American League Championship Series. Mike Napoli homered in the seventh inning and John Lackey outdueled Justin Verlander as the Red Sox shut out the Tigers 1-0 in Detroit in Game Three. Lackey struck out eight over six-and-two-thirds scoreless innings for Boston, which leads the best-of-seven series two-games-to-one. Koji Uehara recorded a four-out save. Verlander fanned ten over eight innings of one-run ball for the loss. The Tigers were 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position. The game was delayed 17 minutes in the second inning due to a power outage. Detroit hosts Game Four on Wednesday.

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
