Cards Sweep Set At "The K"

Former Royal Carlos Beltran hit a two-run homer in the first inning and the Cardinals went on to beat the Royals 4-1 at Kauffman Stadium. Matt Carpenter and Matt Holliday also went deep as St. Louis swept the two-game series in KC. Tyler Lyons allowed one run in seven innings for the win and Edward Mujica notched his 16th save.

After playing two games in Kansas City, the Cardinals and Royals now convene at Busch Stadium to begin a two-game series tonight. Lance Lynn puts his 7-and-1 record on the line for the Redbirds, while the Royals counter with 1-and-2 Luis Mendoza.

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.
