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

Game 16: Dodgers 2, Cardinals 1

Once again, Carpenter throws a fantastic game. Once again, Franklin blows it. For the Cardinals, the only bright side to today's game was that it was a getaway day and they'll be back home on Tuesday against the Nationals. I know I'm excited about that. *yawn* Too many late nights. Maybe that will be one […] Read More

Games 13-15

Raise your hand if you are ready to get back to the midwest and east coast? *raises hand* While I did end up staying awake for these games, I was too exhausted to write the recap that night and with my busy-ness this week, it got put off and put off and then here we are at […] Read More

Game 12: Cardinals 15, Diamondbacks 5

Don't worry, you don't need a trip to the eye doctor, you really are seeing 15 runs on the scoreboard. For the fourth consecutive night, the offense put up serious numbers. A tweet from one of the Cardinals' official twitter accounts claimed that 10 hitters had 5 hits over the previous two days, and three […] Read More

Game 11: Diamondbacks 13, Cardinals 8

It was a Cardinals loss to the Diamondbacks. I didn't even need to watch to find that out because I awoke this morning to a Facebook message from my brother (who is a Diamondbacks fan) enjoying his victory. Of course, he was oddly quiet following Monday's game.The offense finally showed up for Chris Carpenter. Unfortunately, […] Read More
