The Kaskaskia College Blue Angels continue their perfect season now at 5-0 and have yet to be scored on.   KC beat the St. Louis College of Pharmacy 6-0 on Sunday. 

Kaskaskia received two goals from Jordyn Francis.  Sylvia Adler, Monica Robinson, Kaylee Bunker and Sarah Entwistle also scored. KC goalie Ciru Franklin picked up the shutout win.

The Kaskaskia College cross country Blue Devils and Blue Angels opened their season this weekend at the Gabby Reuveni Early Bird Invitational hosted by Washington University and held in Forest Park in St. Louis, MO. 

Of the ten teams at the meet KC was the only community college present. 

The Blue Devils were lead by sophomore Paul Jansen of Breese Central, with a time of 23.49 on the 6K course. The next KC finisher was freshman Brandon Beaver of Centralia, with a time of 24.25.  Elliott Brinkmeyer of Salem, finished number three with a time of 24.37.   The number 4 runner was Jesse Miller of T-Town, 25.27. James Sum was the 5th counter with a time of 27.25. 

The Blue Angels were lead by sophomore Brittany Goff of Salem, with a time of 19.59 on the 4K course.   She was followed by Julie Waldhoff of T-Town with a time of 20.06, Lauren Jansen of T-Town in 20.31, Jordyn Looman of Centralia in 20.35, Cassa Kwiatkowski of Centralia in 20.37 and Caroline Walthes of Centralia in a time of 21.49. 

Kaskaskia will travel to Eastern Illinois University for a meet on Friday.

Matt Holliday had the go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning after Kolten Wong's pinch-hit homer tied the score, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday.

St. Louis took sole possession of first place in the NL Central for the first time this season with its third straight win. The Cardinals moved one game ahead of Milwaukee, which lost to the Chicago Cubs. 

St. Louis scored three in the seventh. Wong homered off Pittsburgh starter Gerrit Cole (7-5) to tie the score at 4-all. Jon Jay followed with a triple and scored on Holliday's single to left. 

Holliday, who also had a two-run double in the third, is 7 for 11 with three home runs and 12 RBIs in the last three games.

Seth Maness (6-3) picked up win in relief. Trevor Rosenthal got the last three outs for his 41st save.

CHICAGO (AP) - Welington Castillo homered and drove in three runs, Luis Valbuena also hit a home run and the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 Monday.

Rookie sensation Jorge Soler had two doubles in his home debut for the Cubs and Jacob Turner (5-8) won in just his second start for Chicago after being acquired from Miami last month. The right-hander allowed just one run and five hits in 6 1-3 innings. 

Hector Rondon pitched the ninth for his 23rd save in 27 chances.

Soler became just the third player in the last 100 years to have at least one extra-base hit in each of his first five games in the majors. Will Middlebrooks did it for the Boston Red Sox in 2012 and Enos Slaughter for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1938.

Jimmy Nelson (2-6), who was called up from the minors to make the start, took the loss.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Michael Sam showed up for his face-to-face exit meeting with St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher, a few hours after clearing waivers.

Sam arrived at Rams Park via through the media entrance Sunday afternoon still looking right at home clad in T-shirt, shorts and flip flips. He shook hands with two reporters and accepted well wishes but declined further comment before heading upstairs to see the coach who wasn't afraid to add the first openly gay player to the roster.

All 21 players released Saturday cleared waivers. Sam's future was a major topic on Twitter, some of it vitriol, some reasoned.

The Rams appeared unlikely to re-sign Sam to the 10-player practice squad because the defensive line is their strongest unit and they need help elsewhere. 

The meeting with Sam meeting was postponed a day so he could attend Missouri's opening victory over South Dakota State.
