The Dent County Fire Protection District responded to a structure fire Friday night at 9:33 reported by Pizza Hut at a house located in the 1000 block of South Oak owned by Shauna Frizzell of Salem and occupied by Amy Murr. Upon arrival, the firefighters found the backside of the house fully involved with a second structure in danger. Firefighters brought the fire under control just after 10:00 that night and were on the scene about 3 ½ hours.

The structure was a total loss and no injuries were reported.

Ken Griffey Jr. hit career home run No. 564 to take sole possession of 10th place on the all-time list as the Cincinnati Reds blasted the St. Louis Cardinals, 10-3, in the opener of a three-game set at Busch Stadium. Alex Gonzalez hit two homers, a two-run shot and a three-run home run, and Scott Hatteberg went 3-for-5 with two runs scored for the Reds, who stopped a two-game slide. Chris Duncan and Scott Spiezio each drove in a run for the Cardinals, who have dropped six of their last eight games. Kip Wells (1-4) dropped his third straight start as he was banged for eight runs on nine hits with three walks in just 4 2/3 innings of work. The Cardinals and Reds will play again tonight at 7:00 on KSMO Radio.

Rookie pitcher Joakim Soria allowed the White Sox two runs in the ninth inning, one on a throwing error and another on a wild pitch, as Chicago earned a 9-7 victory over the Kansas City Royals, sweeping a two-game set at Kauffman Stadium. The game was delayed nearly two hours at the start by heavy rain and tornado warnings, but in the end it was Soria's mistakes that boosted that White Sox to their sixth win in seven games. Brian Bannister for Kansas City, who was recalled from Triple-A Omaha earlier in the day, did not factor in the decision. The right-hander surrendered four runs -- three earned -- on five hits in 4 1/3 innings, while walking two and striking out four. Mark Teahen had two hits, two RBI and scored twice for the Royals. Ross Gload added a two-run triple. Bannister's father, Floyd Bannister, pitched for the Royals from 1988-89. The two are the third father-son combination in club history, behind Hal & Brian McRae and John & Dusty Wathan. The Royals will travel to Minnesota to face the Twins tonight.
