Dodgers, Cardinals Set For Game Six

The Boston Red Sox are one win away from their third World Series appearance in 10 years. Mike Napoli hit a solo homer as the Red Sox built a 4-0 lead and held on to beat the Detroit Tigers 4-3 at Comerica Park in Game Five of the American League Championship Series. The Sox are up 3-2 in the best-of-seven ALCS. Game Six is in Boston on Saturday.

Meanwhile, on the National League side, the St. Louis Cardinals look to advance to the World Series for the second time in three seasons tonight at Busch Stadium in Game Six of the NLCS. It's a rematch of Game Two with Michael Wacha on the hill for the Cards against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. The rookie got the best of the former NL Cy Young winner 1-0 in that contest. Game Seven would be on Saturday should Los Angeles win tonight. Game time is 7:30.

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.
