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.

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
