Cardinals Fall To Mets

Jon Jay was 3-for-3 with two RBI but the Cardinals fell to the Mets yesterday, 10-7. Allen Craig was 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI in the loss. Jake Westbrook allowed three runs, two earned, over six innings in the start. St. Louis is now 12-and-14 in spring play. The Cards battle the Twins in Fort Myers today.

Cardinals third baseman David Freese will have an MRI on his back today. He was a scratch from yesterday's lineup after experiencing pain in his lower back. The team says it's possible Freese will not be ready by Opening Day. Freese will also likely be limited to minor-league games the rest of the spring, if he's able to play.

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Washington Varsity Soccer Goalie Camron Shipley. Camron made countless saves in Washington's 1-0 win over Borgia Saturday night at Jim Scanlan Stadium at Washington High School. The game was scoreless through regulation and two overtimes and Shipley only gave up one goal in the shootout. Camron is a senior and this is his first year playing soccer.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

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."
