WASHINGTON (AP) -- Losing teams are bringing out the worst in the St. Louis Cardinals at a most inopportune time. Adam Wainwright struggled for five innings and the Cardinals lost again, falling to Washington 4-2 Sunday and dropping five games behind Cincinnati in the NL Central. The Cardinals are 2-5 -- against last-place teams Pittsburgh and Washington -- on their 10-game road trip. In August, St. Louis is 5-10 against teams with records under .500.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Ian Desmond singled home Nyjer Morgan in the bottom of the 13th inning and the Washington Nationals overcame Albert Pujols' 400th home run Thursday night in an 11-10 roller-coaster win over the St. Louis Cardinals. Morgan was hit by a pitch from Blake Hawksworth (4-8) while squaring to bunt leading off the inning, then advanced to third on Alberto Gonzalez's one-out single. With the infield in, Desmond bounced a grounder up the middle. Desmond had four hits on the night and drove in three runs.

And the Washington Nationals wait. Already assured of the capital's first postseason baseball since 1933, the Nationals remained stalled in their drive for the NL East title when they lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 10-4 Sunday. “We've got to play the type of baseball that we're capable of playing,” infielder Ian Desmond said. “We didn't do that today.” Carlos Beltran homered from both sides of the plate to lead the Cardinals. Washington (96-63) saw its magic number for clinching the division remain at one with three games remaining.

Hawks answer call from Cardinals, 86-84 By BILL STERNER / Staff Correspondent In a week where the Super Bowl is likely the sporting world's biggest focus, Hagerstown Community College men's basketball coach Jim Brown was doing his best Joe Namath imitation - with a twist. Where the legendary Namath guaranteed a win for his Jets in the big game, Brown insisted his Hawks win maybe their biggest game in a season that was dangerously close to taking a serious nosedive.

PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Steelers must feel as though someone is playing a cruel joke on them. Halfway through their season, right when they expected to have the super-soft AFC North wrapped up, the Steelers (2-6) inexplicably find themselves in last place going into today's game against Arizona. Behind the Ravens (5-3). Behind the Browns (3-5). Behind even - could it be? - the Cincinnati Bengals (3-5). A team that returned virtually intact after winning 25 games the previous two seasons is running out of words to explain how so much could go so wrong so quickly.

March is Women's History Month, a time we usually celebrate or honor a specific woman in history. This year, I would like to do something different. I would like to focus on domestic violence, an issue that has received a lot of attention in recent months because of legislation in Congress to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act. I want to use this opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the issue, the progress we have made since the 1980s and what still needs to be done. Until the 1970s, there really was very little attention paid to domestic violence in our nation.

On March 1, automatic, across-the-board spending cuts will begin to take effect, cutting $1.2 trillion from defense and non-defense programs over the next 10 years.  These automatic cuts are known as sequestration and they will have a devastating effect on millions of Americans. If Congress fails to act to reduce our budget deficit by March 1, sequestration will result in a meat-ax approach to reducing our deficit. According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, sequestration for FY2013 alone will require across-the-board cuts of approximately $42.7 billion in defense and another $42.7 billion in non-defense spending.

African-Americans have been part of the American story from the founding of our nation. Men and women of African ancestry have been instrumental in forging the great nation we have today. For too long, racism and prejudice obscured the rich history of African-Americans. Since 1926, February has been Black History Month, a time to celebrate America's beautiful diversity, and to honor those who have worked hard to ensure that our diversity would forever be one of our greatest strengths.

The resurrection of the cardinals mascot to high school athletics in West Virginia might not be as miraculous as a phoenix rising from the ashes, but the state's official bird is set to return with the opening of Berkeley County's fourth high school next year. The mascot for the new Spring Mills High School was unanimously approved Monday by the Berkeley County Board of Education. The seed-eating bird was the leading choice among more than 700 future students of the school, Berkeley County Schools Superintendent Manny P. Arvon said.

Hagerstown officials have maintained all along that a new multiuse sports and events center in downtown Hagerstown would host more than Hagerstown Suns minor league baseball games. Concerts, local high school sports, fairs and festivals have all been mentioned as possible date-fillers to supplement the 70 or so Suns' home games. Now, low-level professional football games could also be added to that list. Hagerstown Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II said Thursday that he has had talks with a representative of the Chambersburg Cardinals football team about the possibility of playing games in the new $30-million complex.

U.S. Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin promised Friday to fight to preserve Social Security and Medicare. At a senior citizen forum in Hagerstown, Cardin, D-Md., denounced efforts in Washington, D.C., to cut the entitlement programs for senior citizens. Cardin mentioned a budget proposal by U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., that would have made large cuts in federal spending and restructured Medicare. The Republican-majority House of Representatives approved the plan, but the Democratic-majority Senate rejected it. Cardin, who is running for a second six-year term in the Senate, stopped at the new C. Williams Brooks senior citizen housing center on West Baltimore Street in Hagerstown to talk about senior citizen issues.
