Cardinals Roll Pirates

Matt Holliday and David Freese drove in two runs each to lead the Cardinals to a 7-2 win over the Pirates at PNC Park. Allen Craig, Matt Carpenter and Yadier Molina had two hits apiece. Joe Kelly allowed a run on four hits and struck out five to improve to 7-and-3. The Cardinals moved into a tie for first place with the Pirates in the NL Central. Marlon Byrd and John Buck drove in the Pirates' runs. Kris Johnson lasted only two innings and took the loss to fall to 0-and-2.

Adam Wainwright has a chance to keep his St. Louis Cardinals in first place, but must rebound against the club that battered him around last week in the shortest start of his career. Wainwright squares off again on Monday afternoon against the Cincinnati Reds
in the opener of a four-game series.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

2 weeks 2 days 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.
