Washington grabbed a 3-0 lead through four innings of baseball at Westhoff Park Monday night, but the West Jaguars came back with four unearned runs, two in the fifth and two more in sixth and Ryan Franklin made it stand with his second complete game against Washington this season. Franklin finished with seven strike outs and no walks as West improved to 23-5 overall and 9-2 in league action. Noah Borgerding and Aaron Meyer had two hits apiece as Washington dropped to 16-9 and 8-5. Spencer Juergens started but did not figure in the decision. He pitched five innings and gave up two runs in the fifth ending his consecutive scoreless innings streak at 32. Logan Holdermeyer came on in the sixth and was saddled with the loss.

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.
