Commencement, it is said, is a beginning. Yet graduations are also the end of an era--for students and their parents. For the kids, it's a time of excitement and promise. For parents, it's a bit more bittersweet.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

John Lackey and two relievers combined on a six-hitter as the Cardinals blanked the Dodgers, 3-0, in the opener of a three-game set in St. Louis. Lackey scattered five hits and a walk while striking out nine to improve to 3-and-3. Trevor Rosenthal worked a perfect ninth for his 14 save. Randal Grichuk and Jhonny Peralta each doubled in runs for the Cardinals, who have won five in-a-row.
