first_imgCarlos Beltran, right, is congratulated in the dugout by teammates after hitting a three-run home run against the Pittsburgh Pirates in the third inning of Game 1 of baseball’s National League division series on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013, in St. Louis. (AP Photo/Jeff Roberson)ST. LOUIS (AP) – Carlos Beltran’s three-run homer sparked a seven-run third inning and the St. Louis Cardinals got seven stingy innings from Adam Wainwright, delivering a reality jolt to the Pittsburgh Pirates with a 9-1 rout Thursday in their NL division series opener.The first eight Cardinals reached safely in the third to chase A.J. Burnett, saddling the right-hander with the second-shortest outing of his career and putting Game 1 out of reach early. A sellout crowd roared early and then settled in for an easy victory.Lance Lynn (15-10) faces Pirates rookie Gerrit Cole (10-7) in Game 2 Friday.The Pirates ended a 21-year postseason drought and entered their first division series with apparent momentum after beating the Reds in the wild-card game Tuesday. But they never threatened to rally against the Cardinals’ ace.last_img read more

first_imgFacebook63Tweet0Pin0Submitted by The City of LaceyThis year marks the 29th anniversary for the Lacey Spring Fun Fair! Free to the public this family friendly event includes activities for all ages! More than 16,000 folks stop by the fair each year, finding food, vendors, and entertainment to please everyone. The event will be held at Saint Martin’s University Saturday May 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Sunday May 22 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.Thanks to many local businesses, the Lacey Spring Fun Fair is completely free.This year the on-site parade, presented by LeMay, will be returning with the theme ‘The Sights and Sounds of Spring!’ School groups and community organizations are encouraged to apply and join us on Saturday, May 21 at 12 noon. This ‘walking only’ parade weaves throughout the heart of Fun Fair on the grounds of Saint Martin’s where participants will strut their stuff with music, dance moves, and more fun!“As some may have already heard, the Grand Parade (on the street) is not happening anymore,” Fun Fair committee member Jordy Beasley said, “we were pulling a lot of resources and staff away from an already very large event to put on a parade where the participation and spectator numbers weren’t growing.“Beasley also stated, “We (the committee) knew this news would be disappointing for the community and we are so grateful to all the groups who helped us to make this parade possible.” Lacey Spring Fun Fair, as a whole, would not be possible without the assistance and support of the City, Saint Martin’s University, and local businesses and organizations.The Mariner Moose will be at the Lacey Spring Fun Fair this year.
