Dodgers Hold Off Cardinals

Adrian Gonzalez had three hits and drove in three runs, one of those on a solo home run, to lead the Dodgers to a 5-3 win over the Cardinals. Nick Punto added three hits and scored twice and turned in the defensive play of the game when he dived to stop a sharp ground ball headed down the left-field line that kept the score tied. Paco Rodriguez got his first win of the season in relief and Brandon League earned his 10th save. Yadier Molina had three hits for the Cards. St. Louis starting pitcher John Gast left the game in the second inning with shoulder tightness. Seth Maness took the loss out of the bullpen and is 3-and-1. The Cardinals' three-game winning streak came to an end.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

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.
