Cards, Dodgers open series with battle of aces

In an effort to prevent history from repeating itself, the Dodgers have adjusted their rotation, activating pitcher Stephen Fife, who started Sunday versus the Cubs, giving the rest of the rotation an extra day of rest and bumping Capuano from the Cardinals series. More importantly, it set up a battle of aces in the first of a four-game set at Busch Stadium. The move pits Greinke against Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright, who will be playing for a National League-best 14th win, on Monday. If he hadn't missed time with a broken collarbone, Greinke might very well be among the NL wins leaders, too. Greinke is 8-3 through 17 starts this season and has allowed more than two runs just once in his last five starts. Wainwright, named to his second All-Star team ealier this year, has been a rock in the St. Louis rotation. However, he's sporting a 3.68 ERA over his last three outings. It's not bad compared to most pitchers, but it's a full run above his 2.61 ERA this year. In 12 games against the Dodgers in his career, Wainwright has a solid 3.02 ERA over 62 2/3 innings. Game time is 6:05.

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.
