Cardinals Hold Off Nats

A three-run second inning for the Cardinals was keyed by a Tony Cruz two-run single as they held on for a 4-3 win against the Nationals in DC. Lance Lynn moved to 4-and-0 giving up one run and striking out five over five-and-two-thirds innings. Matt Holliday and Lynn drove in the other runs for St. Louis, which has taken two of the first three in the series to jump to 11-and-7. Danny Espinosa hit his first homer of the year in the loss. Jordan Zimmermann was charged with four runs, only one earned, in seven innings seeing his record even up at one. Washington is 10-and-8. Nats manager Matt Williams benched Bryce Harper for not running hard to first during a ground out in the sixth inning.

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."
