Cardinals Suffer Rare Series Loss

Ricky Nolasco and three relievers combined on a five-hitter as the Marlins beat the Cardinals 7-2 in Miami. Nolasco allowed just three hits and one run over seven innings for the win as Miami took two-of-three at Marlins Park. It was the Cardinals' first series loss since late April against Pittsburgh. Jon Jay and Matt Adams drove in runs for the Redbirds in defeat.

Three regulars were missing from the Cardinals' lineup Sunday against the Marlins. Manager Mike Matheny elected to give catcher Yadier Molina, outfielder Matt Holliday and shortstop Pete Kozma the day off. The skipper says it was just to give them each a breather. Tony Cruz, Matt Adams and Daniel Descalso started in their place.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
