Brewers Top Cardinals

The Brewers jumped out to a 7-0 lead and held on for a 7-4 win over the Cardinals at Busch Stadium. Aramis Ramirez hit a solo shot in the win while Jonathan Lucroy hit a bases clearing double. Ryan Braun added two RBI for the Brewers, who have won two straight. Wily Peralta earned his 13th win with two-run ball over six-and-two-thirds innings and Francisco Rodriguez earned his 32nd save. Adam Wainwright lasted just five-and-a-third-innings and allowed seven runs for the loss. Matt Carpenter tripled and drove in three and Matt Holliday went deep as the Cardinals dropped their third contest in the last four.

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."
