Molina Sparks Cards To Win Over Cubs

Yadier Molina's three-run homer capped a four-run ninth inning as the Cardinals beat the Cubs 10-6 at Wrigley Field. Molina went 4-for-6 and drove in four with three runs for St. Louis, which has won seven out of nine. Allen Craig was 4-for-5 and had the go-ahead RBI single prior to Molina's blast in the ninth. Pete Kozma was 3-for-6 and knocked in two while Edward Mujica pitched the final inning-and-a-third for the win. Darwin Barney went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer and four RBI for Chicago, which has lost three out of five. Cody Ransom tied the game with a pinch-hit two-run double in the eighth. Kevin Gregg was tagged for all four late runs to suffer the loss. Both teams return to action on Friday.

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Union Senior Bethany Coons. Bethany finished the basketball season at Union averaging 11 points and eight assists per game. Coach Dusty Weiskopf says Bethany is good at handling the basketball and teams would find it difficult to press Union when Bethany was in the game because of her lateral movement. When combining her scoring and assist averages, Bethany was contributing about 25 points per game.

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.
