Cards Fall To Mets

The Cardinals walked in two during the fourth inning and surrendered a solo shot in the sixth to give the Mets a 3-1 win at Citi Field. Michael Wacha struck out 10, but only made it through four innings and gave up two runs to drop to 2-and-2. Matt Carpenter had four hits and Yadier Molina drove the teams lone run. St. Louis drops to 12-and-10 with the loss.

The Cardinals and Mets close out their four-game series at Citi Field this afternoon. Lance Lynn puts his 4-and-0 mark on the line against New York's Bartolo Colon, who is 1-and-3. First pitch is at 12:10 p.m. The Cards return home to host the Pirates starting tomorrow.

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

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.
