Cards/Phillies Sunday Night

Former first-round draft pick Jake Westbrook tries to make it two straight pitching gems on Sunday when he and the St. Louis Cardinals visit Citizens Bank Park to wrap up a four-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies. The 21st overall pick of the Colorado Rockies way back in 1996, Westbrook has 99 victories in a big-league career that began when he debuted with the New York Yankees in 2000. He won a career-high 15 games with the Cleveland Indians in both 2005 and 2006, then won 13 with the Cardinals while posting a 3.97 earned run average in 174 2/3 innings.

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.
