Phillies Top Cardinals

Jerome Williams tossed eight effective innings of one-run ball to help the Philadelphia Phillies take the finale of a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals with a 7-1 win on Sunday. Williams (2-0), who hasn't gone at least eight innings in a start since May 21, 2013, scattered five hits and walked three while striking out five in the win.
After having a rough time with Texas and Houston earlier this season, Williams has allowed just four runs in 20 1/3 innings over three starts with Philadelphia.
Williams helped his own cause offensively with an RBI, Ben Revere went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored and Jimmy Rollins homered for the Phillies, who have won four of their last six. Justin Masterson (2-2) took the loss after surrendering five runs on six hits and two walks over three innings. Philadelphia went 3-for-6 with runners in scoring position, while St. Louis went 1-for-11 in those instances and stranded eight men on base. Revere stole his 38th base of the season. Asche committed his 14th error of the season. Peralta and Taveras each had two hits. The Cardinals had six as a team.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

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.
