This entry is short because I’m having endless computer trouble and want at least to post that when it counter, Hunter came through.
He hit the game breaking open double in the 3rd with bases loaded (you can see he really HAS left the Astros) with 2 RBIs and another run scoring on yet another effup by Kozma. And then Hunter scored a run.
Let’s say that Cain wasn’t exactly good, and the ump called the rule book strike zone, but Lohse was really lousy – lots of line drives instead of walks, this time. Let’s say that yesterday, Matheny really should have started Shelby Miller because Carpenter looked as lousy as he did in Game 2.
At least all the folks screaming that the Cards had no right to be here because they were the #5 ranked team in the NL will get SOME comfort, even though the Nats went home.
