On August 6, 1994 — Cards lefty Danny Jackson severely sprains his right ankle while running the bases, and will be out the rest of the year. The ligament will not respond to treatment and Jackson will miss the opening of the 1995 season. Jackson underwent thyroid-cancer surgery after the 1993 season and did not react well to the medication. He started the season by losing nine straight and is at 2-12 now.
