Cards Rally Past Pirates

Matt Holliday singled in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning as the Cardinals rallied past the Pirates 5-4 in the first of three from Busch Stadium. Kolten Wong hit a pinch-hit two-run homer earlier in the seventh to tie the game at four. Holliday also had a two-run double in the third for the Redbirds, who have won three straight to take over first place in the NL Central. St. Louis now leads Milwaukee by one game in the division after the Brewers lost their sixth straight to the Cubs on Monday. Seth Maness picked up the win in relief and Trevor Rosenthal earned his 41st save with a flawless ninth. Andrew McCutchen homered, Neil Walker had a two-run double and Andrew Lambo doubled in a run for the Bucs, who are three games behind the Cards. Gerrit Cole yielded all five runs in six-and-a-third frames to suffer the loss and fall to 7-and-5.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

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.
