Wacha Deals As Cards Win Home Opener

Yadier Molina ripped a three-run double in the first and the Cardinals went on to a 5-3 win over the Reds in the home opener yesterday. Michael Wacha tossed six innings of one-run ball for the victory while Matt Holliday and Allen Craig knocked in runs. St. Louis is now 4-and-3.

The Cardinals and Reds continue their three-game series tonight at Busch Stadium. St. Louis sends Lance Lynn to the hill looking for his second win in as many starts. Cincinnati counters with Homer Bailey, who looks to bounce back from a rough first start. First pitch is set for 7:15.

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.
