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.

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Union Senior Bethany Coons. Bethany finished the basketball season at Union averaging 11 points and eight assists per game. Coach Dusty Weiskopf says Bethany is good at handling the basketball and teams would find it difficult to press Union when Bethany was in the game because of her lateral movement. When combining her scoring and assist averages, Bethany was contributing about 25 points per game.

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.
