Wainwright's 2-hitter leads Cards past Nats 8-0

Thursday, 17 April 2014 22:41 Published in Sports
 
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Adam Wainwright threw a two-hitter Thursday night for his seventh career shutout, chipped in at the plate with a double and single, and St. Louis benefited from four errors by Washington in the Cardinals' 8-0 victory.
 
Wainwright (3-1) allowed Ian Desmond's infield single in the second inning and Adam LaRoche's single to right in the ninth. He struck out eight and walked three. During one dominant stretch, the runner-up for the 2013 NL Cy Young award retired 18 consecutive batters.
 
This was the right-hander's 17th complete game and his fourth two-hitter.
 
Desmond, Washington's shortstop, made a pair of errors, raising his season total to seven. The Nationals have 20 through 16 games, an average of 1.25.
 
Wainwright threw 110 pitches and finished the game by striking out Desmond.
 
Taylor Jordan (0-1) gave up seven runs, five earned, in 5 1-3 innings.
 
Matt Adams drove in three runs, Matt Holliday two, and the Cardinals finished with 14 hits. Everyone got in on the act: All nine members of the starting lineup had at least one hit.
 
St. Louis has won eight in a row against Washington, dating to Game 5 of the 2012 NL division series.
 
So far this season, the Nationals have beaten weaker opponents, going a combined 8-1 against the Mets and Marlins, and really struggled against better teams, going 1-6 against the Braves and Cardinals.
 
Remnants of last season, when the Nationals went 6-13 against the Braves, 0-6 against the Cardinals. It is as if Washington sees those clubs and forgets the basics of baseball.
 
"If you don't play well against these guys, you're probably going to get beat," Nationals manager Matt Williams said before Thursday's game. "We understand that we have to play the game right and play it well to have a chance to win."
 
It was as if his players set out to prove him right.
 
The game's first batter, Matt Carpenter, sent a seemingly routine grounder to Desmond, who failed to field the ball cleanly. Then Kolten Wong's swinging bunt was grabbed by Jordan, but the pitcher could not manage to get the ball out of his glove. That, at least, was ruled a hit.
 
Up came Holliday, who bounced a double past diving third baseman Anthony Rendon to drive in a run. An RBI groundout scored another, and Yadier Molina's single through a drawn-in infield made it 3-0.
 
There was more sloppiness in the fourth, when Desmond's throwing error was compounded by an error on second baseman Danny Espinosa, who dropped the ball making the transfer on a potential double play, resulting in an RBI for Wainwright that gave St. Louis a 4-0 lead.
 
The Cardinals kept tacking on runs, including one off rookie reliever Blake Treinen. Nationals right fielder Jayson Werth dropped a flyball in the eighth, but St. Louis didn't score that inning.
 
NOTES: In Friday's second game of the four-game series, Cardinals RHP Michael Wacha (2-0, 1.89 ERA) will face Nationals LHP Gio Gonzalez (2-1, 3.50). ... The Cardinals put RHP Joe Kelly on the 15-day DL with a strained left hamstring, a day after he got hurt while trying to beat out a bunt attempt in a 5-1 loss to Milwaukee. St. Louis also optioned RHP Keith Butler to Triple-A Memphis and recalled rookie RHPs Eric Fornataro and Jorge Rondon from Memphis. ... Nationals CF Denard Span (7-day DL, concussion) began a minor league injury rehab stint at Class A Hagerstown on Thursday, going 1 for 2 and playing five innings on defense. ... Nationals RHP Doug Fister (15-day DL, back muscle) threw two innings at extended spring training in Florida.

Steve Stenger Nabs Labor Endorsement

Thursday, 17 April 2014 11:23 Published in Local News
St. Louis, MO --  Councilman Steve Stenger announced Thursday that he has received the St. Louis Labor Council's endorsement in the race for St. Louis County Executive.  
 
The Labor Council is the umbrella organization representing over 50 individual unions in the St. Louis area.
There are currently 125,000 union members in the St. Louis area with the majority of them living in St. Louis County.
 
Along with the St. Louis Labor Council endorsement comes financial support and grass-roots outreach to it’s members.  Stenger is challenging incumbent Charles Dooley.
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A central Missouri county has hired four attorneys to help defend itself and three employees named in a lawsuit filed on behalf of a man whose murder conviction was overturned after he served nearly a decade behind bars.
 
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports Ryan Ferguson filed an amended federal civil rights suit earlier this month against Boone County, former prosecuting attorney Kevin Crane and investigators Ben White and William Haws.
The suit claims the county has "customs, policies and omissions in training that caused the deprivation" of Ferguson's rights.
 
Ferguson was convicted in 2005 of killing Tribune sports editor Kent Heitholt in 2001, but a three-judge state appeals court panel vacated his convictions last year because prosecutors wrongly withheld evidence favorable to Ferguson's defense.
