Cards unbox brooms against D-backs

Allen Craig drove in the go-ahead run with a double in the seventh and the St. Louis Cardinals completed a three-game sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks with a 4-2 victory on Thursday. Shane Robinson went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored. Craig and Jhonny Peralta both contributed two hits and a run scored for the Cardinals, who have won seven of their last eight. Pat Neshek (1-0) earned the win after allowing just one hit over two scoreless innings in relief of starter Lance Lynn, who surrendered two runs on seven hits with six strikeouts in six frames. Paul Goldschmidt and Aaron Hill both drove in a run as Arizona dropped its third straight game. Wade Miley (3-5) was tagged with the loss after giving up three runs on seven hits with four walks in 6 2/3 innings.

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people. None have been as difficult to watch, however, as the annexation battle in Washington--which pitted good people who care about their community against good people who care about their community.
