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.
Brandon Moss tattooed a three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth to give the Cardinals an 8-5 walk-off win over the Nationals at Busch Stadium. Jhonny Peralta, Kolten Wong and Mark Reynolds plated a run each as St. Louis scored five runs in the final two frames. Mitch Harris improved to 2-and-1 in relief as the Cardinals ran their winning streak to four.
