Bats held in check as Miller struggles

Clayton Kershaw polished off a brilliant month of June with a 13-strikeout performance on Sunday, and the Los Angeles Dodgers took a 6-0 decision from the St. Louis Cardinals in the finale of a four-game set. Kershaw (9-2) scattered five hits with two walks over seven scoreless innings to win his sixth straight decision, all in June. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner went 6-0 with a minuscule 0.82 ERA and 61 strikeouts in six starts throughout the month, highlighted by his first career no-hitter on June 18 against Colorado. If all that wasn't enough, Kershaw is in the midst of a 28-inning scoreless streak. Andre Ethier hit a three-run homer, while Adrian Gonzalez and Yasiel Puig each scored twice for the Dodgers, who have won 10-of-13 and tied the San Francisco Giants for first atop the NL West. St. Louis starter Shelby Miller (7-7) was charged with the loss after allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings on the hill.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

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.
