The fear that Cardinals fans had that no name, left handed pitchers would shut down the Cardinals in this World Series was finally realized. Thankfully, it’ll likely be his only start of the World Series.
The 25 year old Derek Holland completely shut down the Cardinals offense on Sunday night, tossing 8 1/3 innings of 2-hit, shutout baseball. Every Cardinals player except for Lance Berkman went hitless against Holland. Berkman was even batting from the right side against Holland, his weaker side.
