Cardinals Hold Off Reds

Yadier Molina went 3-for-5 with a solo homer as the Cardinals downed the Reds 7-5 at Busch Stadium. Kolten Wong and Matt Holliday each knocked in two runs for St. Louis while Lance Lynn notched the win. Trevor Rosenthal earned his third save in the victory.

The Redbirds wrap up their three-game series with the Reds this afternoon at Busch Stadium. St. Louis sends right-hander Shelby Miller to the hill as he looks to bounce back from his rough first start. Cincinnati counters with Mike Leake. First pitch is set for 12:45.

4 days 13 hours ago

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Union Senior Bethany Coons. Bethany finished the basketball season at Union averaging 11 points and eight assists per game. Coach Dusty Weiskopf says Bethany is good at handling the basketball and teams would find it difficult to press Union when Bethany was in the game because of her lateral movement. When combining her scoring and assist averages, Bethany was contributing about 25 points per game.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
