Gomes' Blast Lifts Red Sox Past Cardinals

Jonny Gomes belted a three-run homer in the sixth inning to send the Red Sox to a 4-2 win over the Cardinals in Game Four of the World Series. Lance Lynn was charged with three runs in less than six innings to take the loss. The best-of-seven series is now tied at two games apiece. Cardinals rookie Kolten Wong was picked off at first base to end Game Four last night in Busch Stadium. Wong was running for Allen Craig and left Carlos Beltran with the bat in his hand at the plate to end the game. Beltran represented the tying run in the 4-2 loss. The Cardinals send ace Adam Wainwright to the hill for Game Five of the World Series tonight. Wainwright was roughed up for five runs in as many innings in Game One of the series. He will face Boston's Game One starter Jon Lester. First pitch is set for 7:07 from Busch Stadium.

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.
