Jay/Wainwright Lead Cards to Victory

Jon Jay drove in four runs and Adam Wainwright turned in a seven-inning gem to become the National League's second 14-game winner this season leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-1 ousting of the Chicago Cubs in the rubber match of a three-game series from Wrigley Field. Wainwright racked up 11 strikeouts while yielding one run on just five hits and a walk to join Washington's Jordan Zimmermann for the NL lead in victories. The St. Louis ace was backed by Jay's two hits, one an RBI single and the other a game-breaking three-run homer in the seventh inning. Matt Carpenter added a two-run single and Yadier Molina had two doubles and scored twice for the Cardinals. Junior Lake had three of Chicago's six hits and knocked in the Cubs' only run with a sixth-inning double. Edwin Jackson pitched well in defeat, permitting three runs, one earned despite walking four over six innings.

"No Justice, No Peace"

Certainly, there was no peace on the streets of Ferguson on the night the grand jury announced it would not indict police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown.

The images of a city burning were disturbing, saddening and sickening. Every business torched leaves in its wake families who have lost their source of income, and a community that will find it that much harder to rebuild.
