Wainwright, Cards Roll Nats

Adam Wainwright tossed a two-hit shutout to guide the Cardinals to an 8-0 win over the Nationals in Washington. Wainwright struck out eight and walked three as he improved to 3-and-1. Matt Adams knocked in three runs for St. Louis, which improved to 10-and-6. Matt Holliday added two RBI for the Cards. The series continues tonight.

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Joe Kelly is on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. He hurt himself trying to run out a bunt in the fifth inning of Wednesday's game at Milwaukee. Kelly has allowed only one earned run in three starts so far this season. The Cardinals also optioned pitcher Keith Butler to Triple-A Memphis and recalled pitchers Eric Fornataro and Jorge Rondon from the same club.

4 days 8 hours ago

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Union Senior Bethany Coons. Bethany finished the basketball season at Union averaging 11 points and eight assists per game. Coach Dusty Weiskopf says Bethany is good at handling the basketball and teams would find it difficult to press Union when Bethany was in the game because of her lateral movement. When combining her scoring and assist averages, Bethany was contributing about 25 points per game.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
