Braves Ground Cardinals

Mike Minor tossed seven innings of one-run ball to lead the Braves in a 4-1 victory over the Cardinals at Turner Field. Minor also knocked in a run at the plate as he improved to 10-and-5. Jason Heyward hit a solo homer and Chris Johnson was 2-for-3 with an RBI for Atlanta, which has won three out of five. Craig Kimbrel locked down his 29th save in the ninth. Yadier Molina's solo homer in the second was all St. Louis could muster offensively. Adam Wainwright struck out eight but gave up four runs, three earned, over seven frames to fall to 13-and-6. The Cards saw a four-game winning streak end.

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
