The Score

+6 More than 40,600 people race in the Monument Avenue 10-K, which is won by Mengistu Nebsi of Ethiopia, followed closely by Kenyans Julius Kogo and Benson Cheruiyot. That's OK, Richmond, we haven't had a native son win on Monument since the addition of Arthur Ashe.

-3 In the aftermath of the Mega Millions frenzy, no one in Richmond wins the largest lottery jackpot in history. Who wants to be a 1-percenter anyway?

0 After a nearly two-year investigation, the Virginia State Police and the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control announce the destruction of 25 moonshine stills and 36 black-pot stills that can hold 400 to 800 gallons of whiskey in Southwest Virginia. That might explain the new police motto, "To Protect and Serve, Chilled Over Ice."

+4 The Richmond Flying Squirrels work out at The Diamond before hitting the road to Connecticut on Thursday to take on the New Britain Rock Cats. And if you want more proof that spring baseball is back, Nutzy the Flying Squirrel says he's finished thawing out his nuts.

+3 A half-dozen Richmond food trucks gear up for the city's first one-stop-eating gathering, setting up Tuesday and Friday behind the Virginia Historical Society. This will correspond with the museum's new exhibit, "Burritos Through Time: a Commonwealth's Search for Intestinal Fortitude."
