Dodgers Stave Off Elimination

There will be a Game Six in the National League Championship Series. Adrian Gonzalez homered twice as the Dodgers defeated the Cardinals 6-4 in Game Five in Los Angeles. Carl Crawford and A.J. Ellis also went deep for the Dodgers, who now trail three-games-to-two in the best-of-seven series. Carlos Beltran tripled in a run, while Matt Holliday went 3-for-4 with an RBI-double for the Redbirds. Joe Kelly allowed four runs in five frames for the loss.

The Dodgers will send Clayton Kershaw to match up with the Cardinals stater Michael Wacha Friday night at Busch Stadium. Both pitchers faced off in Game Two with Wacha out dueling Kershaw, 1-0. First pitch is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

In the night cap, the Detroit Tigers used a five-run second inning to cruise by the Boston Red Sox 7-3 in Game Four of the American League Championship Series. Doug Fister struck out seven in six innings of one-run ball for the win as the Tigers evened the ALCS at two games apiece. The Tigers also host Game Five on Thursday night.

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.
