St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Josh Hancock was drunk and talking on his cellphone at the time of his fatal accident, and marijuana was found in the sport utility vehicle he was driving. Medical examiner Michael Graham said at a news conference Friday that the 29-year-old reliever was dead "within seconds" from head injuries in the crash early Sunday on Interstate 64 in St. Louis. His vehicle hit the back of a tow truck parked on the highway to assist a driver from a previous accident.

Marcus Giles was a little too rushed to talk. He had to check out some new suits that were being delivered to the visiting clubhouse at Turner Field. But, as the San Diego second baseman rushed toward the door, he yelled back his two cent's worth on the latest hot-button issue: "Keep the beer in the clubhouse!" Giles' plea aside, it seems another of baseball's time-honored traditions is going the way of wool uniforms and daytime World Series games.

Josh Hancock, a St. Louis Cardinals pitcher who rode from the unemployment line in February 2006 into a World Series championship parade in October, was killed in a car accident Sunday. He was 29. For the second time in five years, tragedy touched the Cardinals. Another St. Louis pitcher, Darryl Kile, died in his hotel room in 2002 of a heart attack. "The pain our organization feels today is unspeakable," Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt Jr. said at a news conference at Busch Stadium.

CINCINNATI -- The season has brought one setback after another for the St. Louis Cardinals -- Manager Tony La Russa's drunken-driving arrest, reliever Josh Hancock's death, a series of injuries to everyday players. The defending World Series champions may be running out of resilience. Joey Votto hit a two-run double and David Ross followed with a two-run homer Thursday, sending the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-4 victory that completed the Cardinals' trip to ruin.

Chase Utley extended his hitting streak to 33 games. His manager thinks he can go a lot longer. Utley kept the major leagues' longest streak this season alive with two hits -- one in the first inning -- against the team that stopped teammate Jimmy Rollins' 38-game run in the first week of the season. "I don't want to say too much about it, but that's a pretty good hitter," Phillies Manager Charlie Manuel said after Utley helped Philadelphia beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 5-3, on Tuesday night.
