After waiting seven hours on the tarmac at Lambert Airport, the Cardinals are finally on the ground in Boston.
A mechanical problem had grounded the Delta Airlines charter flight that was supposed to take off Tuesday afternoon. Players, coaches and their families had to wait for a new one to be flown in from Atlanta.
While they waited, several players posted good-natured comments on social media. Matt Carpenter tweeted "On the bright side really getting to know my teammates children."
The Cardinals hadn't scheduled any workouts for Tuesday.
The team finally arrived in Boston about 10:00 p.m. St. Louis time.
They'll take on the Red Sox in a must-win World Series Game 6 Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. CDT.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The former director of Missouri's unemployment benefits agency is alleging discrimination in her firing by Gov. Jay Nixon's administration.
Gracia Backer was replaced in March as director of the Division of Employment Security in Missouri's labor department. Her ouster came at the same time that Nixon appointed labor department director Larry Rebman to a different job.
Documents provided Monday to The Associated Press show Backer has filed a discrimination complaint with the Missouri Commission on Human Rights. The complaint claims Backer was fired after raising concerns that Rebman was discriminating against her and other older and female employees.
Rebman told the AP on Monday that he didn't discriminate against Backer.
The governor's office never announced why Backer was replaced as division director.
CHICAGO (AP) - U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin has removed a Facebook post that erroneously claimed a GOP leader had told the president, "I can't even stand to look at you."
Durbin said Monday he's satisfied that that people now know he's not to blame for the mistake.
The decision resolves a point of tension between the White House and one of President Barack Obama's most loyal defenders. The White House acknowledges the error stemmed from a "miscommunication."
Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, was not at the meeting where the statement in question would have been made. He says his source was a White House staffer who briefed him.
The post drew rebukes from Republicans who said no such statement was made.
