St. Louis police have identified a man who died after falling from a Mississippi River bridge.
Police say the victim was 68-year-old Reed Highfield of Lebanon, Ill. He fell from the Eads Bridge shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday. It wasn't clear what caused the fall but it is not considered suspicious.
Rescue crews found Highfield close to the bank on the Missouri side and pulled him to shore. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Texas Rangers rallied against the Cardinals’ bullpen last night to win Game 2 of the World Series 2-1 at Busch Stadium.
Both starters Jaime Garcia and the Rangers’ Colby Lewis matched zeroes for the first six frames before Allen Craig’s pinch-single broke the ice. Cards closer Jason Motte was called on to protect the Cards’ 1-0 lead. He’s been hot, with five postseason saves, but was tagged with the loss in this one.
