After completing a second day of competition at the National Senior Games in Louisville, Kentucky, the Missouri team finished first in their pool. The first round paired up two of the strongest remaining teams, Missouri and Texas (National Champs two of the last three National Senior Olympics). In a hard fought game Texas edged Missouri 41-38. The single elimination part of the tournament began yesterday. The Missouri team made it through Tennessee and New York to make the final eight teams left in the tournament. All other teams have been eliminated from the field, except the final eight. Missouri will play two games today with the first game against Connecticut. Missouri team members include Larry Sexton, Charles Pace, Mike Goyvai, Steve Hauck, and Randy Noll.

David Wright hit a two-run homer and Tom Glavine allowed just one hit as the New York Mets recorded a 2-0 victory over the St, Louis Cardinals in a rain-shortened affair at Shea Stadium. Glavine (7-5) picked up win No. 297, retiring the final 13 batters he faced, and is now three wins away from becoming the 22nd pitcher all-time to reach the 300-win plateau. The left-hander struck out one and walked two over six innings.  St. Louis starting pitcher Anthony Reyes (0-10) was putting together his best start of the season, before Mother Nature interrupted. He had allowed just two runs on two hits -- both in the first inning -- striking out three and walking two. Reyes has now dropped 10 straight decisions this season and 12 in a row dating back to the 2006 regular season, tying Bill Kissinger's franchise record set from 1896-97. Scott Rolen had the only hit for the Cardinals, who have lost two of the first three games of this four-game set. The two teams play again tonight at 5:50 on KSMO Radio.

Mark Teahen's RBI single in the third accounted for the only run of the contest as Kansas City edged Los Angeles, 1-0, in the finale of a three-game series. Jorge De La Rosa (5-9) scattered 10 hits over six shutout innings, while Joey Gathright singled and scored for the Royals, who swept the series and have won a season-high four straight games. Joakim Soria hurled a perfect eighth, and Octavio Dotel retired the side in order in the ninth to pick up his eighth save of the season. It was KC's first shutout win of the season, and the club's first blanking of an opponent since September 5, 2006 over the Yankees. The Royals have the day off today.

St. Louis Rams have agreed to terms on a three-year contract with wide receiver Derek Stanley.
