Cardinal's flight to Boston delayed 7 hours

   After waiting seven hours on the tarmac at Lambert Airport, the Cardinals are finally on the ground in Boston.  

   A mechanical problem had grounded the Delta Airlines charter flight that was supposed to take off Tuesday afternoon.  Players, coaches and their families had to wait for a new one to be flown in from Atlanta.  

   While they waited, several players posted good-natured comments on social media.  Matt Carpenter tweeted "On the bright side really getting to know my teammates children."  

   The Cardinals hadn't scheduled any workouts for Tuesday.

   The team finally arrived in Boston about 10:00 p.m. St. Louis time.  

   They'll take on the Red Sox in a must-win World Series Game 6 Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. CDT.

   NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Yankees paid tribute to victims of the Boston Marathon bombings by playing the Fenway Park favorite "Sweet Caroline" at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night.

   Other teams around the majors did the same. The popular sing-along song has been featured at Boston Red Sox home games since 2002.

   The Yankees honored Boston, home of their longtime rivals, by playing the Neil Diamond hit over the public-address system after the third inning against Arizona. Yankees fans sang along, and some people in the crowd wore Red Sox hats and jerseys.

   "Thank you NY Yankees for playing 'Sweet Caroline' for the people of Boston," Diamond wrote on his Twitter page. "You scored a home run in my heart. With respect, Neil (hashtag)OneBoston."

   A ribbon was shown on the scoreboard displaying the insignia of the Red Sox and Yankees and the words: "New York stands with Boston ... Pray for Boston."

   There also was a pregame moment of silence. A message that read "United We Stand" showing the Red Sox and Yankees logos was posted on an electronic board atop the ballpark.

   Earlier in the day, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said it was time to "put the baseball teams aside" and recognize "we're all behind the people in Boston."

   "Sweet Caroline" also was played at Marlins Park, Dodger Stadium and in Cleveland, where the Red Sox beat the Indians 7-2.

   "That was a very classy touch," said Indians skipper Terry Francona, who managed the Red Sox for eight years.
