HOUSTON -- The former director of scouting for the St. Louis Cardinals pleaded guilty in federal court Friday to hacking the player personnel database of the Houston Astros in an unusual case of high-tech cheating involving two Major League Baseball clubs. Christopher Correa pleaded guilty to five counts of unauthorized access of a protected computer, access authorities said dated back several years. The 35-year-old Correa was the Cardinals' director of baseball development until he was fired last summer. Correa told the judge that his actions were "stupid." He faces up to five years in prison on each charge when he is sentenced April 11. In a five-page charging document, prosecutors accused Correa of improperly downloading in 2013 an Excel file of the Astros' scouting list of every eligible player for that year's draft. They say he also improperly viewed Astros' notes of trade discussions, the Astros' main draft page and a scouting page that listed information on Houston prospects. … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Former St. Louis Cardinals executive pleads guilty to hacking Houston Astros
CHICAGO — Matt Garza pitched into the seventh inning for his fifth consecutive win and Alfonso Soriano homered again, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 6-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night. Garza allowed a season-high 10 hits in 6 2-3 innings, but held the NL's highest scoring offense to two runs while improving to 5-0 with a 1.24 ERA in his last six starts. With a handful of scouts from several contenders watching his every move, the right-hander struck out four and walked two. Garza's hot stretch has made him one of the top names on the market ahead of the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. But he also is eligible for free agency after the season, adding a tricky element to the negotiations between any interested team and a Cubs franchise looking for more top-level prospects for its rebuilding project. Jon Jay had four hits and Matt Adams went 2 for 4 for St. Louis, which had won six of seven, including a 3-2 victory in the second game of the four-game series … [Read more...] about Matt Garza earns 5th consecutive win as Chicago Cubs beat St. Louis Cardinals 6-4
