Cards Bounce Braves

Adam Wainwright continued his strong season leading the Cardinals to a 7-1 win over the Braves in the finale of a three-game series at Turner Field. Wainwright improved to 6-and-2, allowing one run in eight innings with six strikeouts. Matt Holliday had three hits and three RBI for St. Louis, which took two of three from Atlanta.

The Cardinals make the final stop on their three-city road trip this weekend in Pittsburgh. They open a three-game series with the Pirates tomorrow night at PNC Park. Michael Wacha is slated to start for St. Louis, while Pittsburgh counters with Francisco Liriano.

From terror attacks to campus threats, jihadist wars in the name of extreme religion, protest groups shouting at each other to the vitriol of the anonymous internet--it seems our world is seething with anger. Anger begets hatred. Hatred begets evil. Evil begets fear, which begets anger, which begets more hatred, then more evil.
