Wong Homers As Cards Fall To Mets

Kolten Wong hit a two-run homer and finished 2-for-5 as the Cardinals lost 9-8 to the Mets yesterday in Jupiter. Adam Wainwright went three-and-a-third innings, allowing a run on two hits. The teams rematch in Port St. Lucie today.

Cardinals outfield prospect Oscar Taveras is unlikely to make the 25-man roster coming out of spring training. Taveras had ankle surgery last season and is dealing with a tight hamstring in the same leg. Manager Mike Matheny says it will be tough to bring him north if he isn't healthy.

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.
