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.
Jason Heyward collected three hits and finished a home run short of the cycle as the Cardinals topped the Giants, 7-5, at AT&T Park. Matt Carpenter, Brandon Moss and Mark Reynolds tagged solo shots, while Yadier Molina drove in two in the win. Jaime Garcia threw six-and-a-third and worked around 10 hits and four runs to improve to 7-and-4. Kevin Siegrist notched his sixth save in the rubber match of the three-game set.
