According to the "Post-Dispatch," Freese will start a second straight game tonight after playing last night's game in Milwaukee. Wong had been starting the majority of games at second base, pushing Matt Carpenter to third and Freese to the bench. Manager Mike Matheny says Freese has handled the situation like an absolute pro.

In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
