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.

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.
