Yankees Sink Cards In Extras

A three-run 12th inning lifted the Yankees to a 6-4 win over the Cardinals in the first of three from Busch Stadium. Brian Roberts and Brendan Ryan each had RBI singles and Alfonso Soriano knocked in a run with sac fly in the decisive frame. Reliever Alfredo Aceves grabbed the win and David Robertson locked down his 11th save despite allowing a run. New York has won three in-a-row to move to 27-and-23. Four different St. Louis players drove in a run in the defeat. Kolten Wong and Matt Adams each had two hits. Reliever Randy Choate fell to 0-and-2. The Cards sit at 28-and-23 after having a two-game winning streak snapped.

The Cardinals presented a gift to retiring Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter prior to yesterday's game. The Cards gave Jeter a pair of Stan Musial cuff links and donated 10-thousand dollars to his "Turn 2 Foundation." Jeter is playing in his 20th and final season.

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.
