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.

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
