Adams Lifts Cards Past Reds

Matt Adams hit a go-ahead solo homer in the top of the 16th inning to lift the Cardinals past the Reds 5-4 at Great American Ball Park. Adams also hit a solo shot in the top of the 14th, but the Reds answered in the bottom of the frame. Adams came in as a replacement for Cards first baseman Allen Craig, who left in the fourth inning with a sprained left foot. Carlos Beltran and Matt Holliday also plated a run each for the Redbirds, who now trail the Pirates by just one game in the NL Central.

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.
