Game 23: Astros 6, Cardinals 5

It was set to be Lance Berkman's homecoming. As Matt Leach stated on Twitter last night, Berkman had written everyone's stories for them with an RBI double in the top of the 9th to give St. Louis the lead. But things changed quickly. A single, a passed ball, an error, and a wild pitch later […] Read More

Game 22: Cardinals 3, Reds 0

Jake Westbrook got a much needed dominant start as he held the divisional rival Reds to just three hits over six innings. His mirror, Edinson Volquez matched him into the sixth inning when Yadier Molina parked one over the fence for his first home run of the season, plating three runs with it. Molina even mimicked the […] Read More

Game 21: Reds 5, Cardinals 3

For the second straight game of the series, rain played a major role. Unfortunately, it was the Reds who took advantage after the rains stopped. Chris Carpenter, while not efficient, turned in a quality start for the Cardinals once again. Once again, his start went wasted as the bullpen would fail to hold onto it […] Read More

Game 20: Cardinals 4, Reds 2

Okay, okay. I consistently and loudly complain about a lot of Tony LaRussa's moves, moves that seem to less and less reflect a statistical basis for the determination for the move. Moves I think have begun to cost the Cardinals more games than it's winning us. However, being harsh in my complaints, I try to […] Read More

Game 19: Cardinals 5, Nationals 0

Before the game I said that all I wanted out of Kyle Lohse today was 7 innings with 3 earned, one from the bullpen, and 5 runs from the offense. I got more, and less, than I asked for. Lohse was dominant on Thursday afternoon, tossing 9 scoreless innings and allowing just four base runners […] Read More

Game 18: Cardinals 5, Nationals 3

Let's play two! In the second game of the double header, Jaime Garcia picked up his third win of the season to remain undefeated. For Garcia it wasn't an exceptional start. He threw 101 pitches over 5+ innings of baseball, but the offense managed to provide him enough offense to keep the lead. The unsung hero […] Read More

Game 17: Nationals 8, Cardinals 6

For Jake Westbrook, it wasn't a fun game. Once again Westbrook battled through the game, leading many Cardinals fans believing that he may be fighting some sort of injury. While the previous starts this season haven't been outstanding, Westbrook turned in his worst game of the season. He only went 3 innings, threw 68 pitches […] Read More

Off Day Thoughts

It's been awhile since I wrote something other than a game recap, right? I agree. Very little time for me as I hit the end of my last fulltime semester of college. Silly me is taking more than the maximum hours that they allow without the right kind of permission. Seems like a big mistake […] Read More
