Beltran Helps Cards Crush Mets

Carlos Beltran went 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBI as the Cardinals crushed the Mets 10-4 at Busch Stadium. Jon Jay also homered for St. Louis, which built a 9-0 lead in the fifth inning. Filling in for Jake Westbrook, John Gast pitched five shutout innings before giving up a four-spot in the sixth to win his big league debut.

The Cardinals and Mets play the third of their four-game series at Busch Stadium tonight. Shelby Miller puts his 5-and-2 mark on the line for St. Louis, while New York counters with 0-and-3 Shaun Marcum. Miller is coming off a complete-game, one-hitter in which he struck out 13 and walked none in a 3-0 victory over the Rockies last Friday.

"No Justice, No Peace"

Certainly, there was no peace on the streets of Ferguson on the night the grand jury announced it would not indict police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown.

The images of a city burning were disturbing, saddening and sickening. Every business torched leaves in its wake families who have lost their source of income, and a community that will find it that much harder to rebuild.
