Cards Dump Angels

The Cardinals put together a seven-run second inning on their way to mauling the Angels, 12-2, in Anaheim. Matt Carpenter was 3-for-6 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored, while John Jay connected for a long ball and three runs knocked in. Shelby Miller pitched six innings of two-run ball with six strikeouts to improve to 9-and-6. St. Louis is 50-and-33.

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright was named the National League Pitcher of the Month for June. Wainwright allowed just nine earned runs over six starts while posting a 1.77 earned run average and a 4-and-2 record for the month. The Cards' ace opened the month with a complete game against the San Francisco Giants before capping June with a similar effort against the Oakland A's in a 7-1 victory at Oakland on June 29th.

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.
