Cardinals Top Giants

Saturday-Cards 6 Giants 3

Barry Zito tossed seven innings of three-hit ball to help the Giants blank the Cardinals, 1-0. It was the home opener at AT&T Park for the defending World Series champions. Angel Pagan drew a bases-loaded walk to score Gregor Blanco in the bottom of the fourth for the game's lone run. Sergio Romo locked up his third save of the year for San Francisco, which improved to 3-and-1 on the season. Jake Westbrook threw six-and-two-thirds frames of one-run ball to suffer the tough-luck loss for St. Louis. Allen Craig had two of the three hits for the Cards, who fell to 1-and-3.

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
