Cardinals Drop Braves

Matt Carpenter went 2-for-4 with two RBI as the Cardinals edged the Braves 4-3 in Atlanta last night. Shelby Miller allowed two runs over five innings to improve to 4-and-2 while Trevor Rosenthal survived a scare in the ninth for his ninth save. St. Louis has won three out of five.

The Cardinals continue their three-game series with the Braves in Atlanta tonight. Tyler Lyons takes the mound for St. Louis looking for his first win against two losses. The Braves counter with Gavin Floyd, who's making his 2014 debut. First pitch from Turner Field is set for 6:10.

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.
