Cards Escape Against Marlins

Trevor Rosenthal got Casey McGehee to ground into a double play with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth to give the Cardinals a 3-2 win against the Marlins in the opener of a three-game set at Busch Stadium. St. Louis scored all their runs in the sixth headlined by two RBI doubles from Yadier Molina and Oscar Taveras. Lance Lynn picked up the win, striking out six over six-and-two-thirds shut out innings, while Rosenthal held on for 26th save despite giving up two runs. St. Louis has won three straight. Christian Yelich's one-run single and Giancarlo Stanton's RBI walk pulled Miami within one before McGehee ended the rally. Nathan Eovaldi fell to 5-and-4, allowing all three runs in six innings. The Marlins are 2-and-6 in their last eight.

Joe Kelly will toe the rubber two more times in the minors before returning to the Cardinals rotation. The righty is expected to return after the All-Star break. Kelly is expected to throw about 70 pitches in his next minor league start and around 85 in his final outing. The 26-year-old posted a 0.59 earned run average in three starts before hitting the disabled list with a hamstring injury.

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.
