The Missouri Department of Conservation wants to help pond owners who want to maintain good fishing to be alert for conditions that could lead to summer fish kills. Conservation Department fisheries biologists say three conditions can cause fish die-offs in ponds: shallow water, excessive aquatic vegetation and too many fish. In all cases, the ultimate culprit is lack of oxygen. Ponds should be at least 8-feet deep to enable fish to survive hot weather. Shallow ponds heat up faster and reduce the ability of water to hold oxygen. Overabundant vegetation also can make things tough for fish. Plants need oxygen to live, and although they normally produce more oxygen than they use, this condition is reversed on cloudy days. The number of fish in a pond also determines how they are affected by low oxygen levels. The biggest fish, those most prized by anglers, usually are the first to die. If pond owners see fish gulping air at the surface, it is time for action. For more information, contact the Conservation Department near you.

Kip Wells twirled eight stellar innings to lead the St. Louis Cardinals over the Florida Marlins, 6-0, in the rubber match of a three-game series at Dolphin Stadium. Wells (4-12) yielded just two hits over his dominant outing while striking out four and walking a pair for the Cardinals, who have won three of four. Wells entered with a 1-8 mark on the road this season. Juan Encarnacion knocked in three runs and So Taguchi finished with two RBI and two runs scored in a winning effort as the Cardinals beat the Marlins for the eighth time in the last 10 meetings. The evening was not all filled with good news. Scott Rolen traveled back to St. Louis on Wednesday to have his left shoulder examined. The standout third baseman received an injection in the shoulder, but is expected to resume playing in a few days. The Cardinals travel to Atlanta to start a four-game series tonight starting at 6:00 and you can hear the game on KSMO Radio.

Billy Butler and Alex Gordon each drove in two runs as Kansas City edged Boston, 6-5, in the rubber match of a three-game set at Fenway Park. Odalis Perez (5-8) allowed seven hits and five runs with two walks and two strikeouts over five innings, earning his first win since June 18. Ross Gload and Mark Grudzielanek also knocked in runs for the Royals, who won two straight to end the series and have now won three of five. After taking two of three in Boston from September 8-10, 2006, Kansas City has won back-to- back series at Fenway for the first time since taking both three-game sets there in the 2000 season. Octavio Dotel entered in the ninth and gave up a two-out single to Ortiz before retiring Ramirez on a pop out to end the game, earning his 10th save of the year. Kansas City is off today and they will travel to Detroit for a three-game set starting Friday.
