Cardinals Haiku Wednesday: Cards Win Behind Lynn

By Christine Coleman of AaronMilesFastball.com

The St. Louis Cardinals are undefeated at Busch Stadium this season!

Just wanted to emphasize that before also mentioning Lance Lynn is 2-0. Yep, the man who's now allowed 8 earned runs and 16 hits in 11 innings is right there among the league leaders in wins. (And, yes, many think wins are a dumb and ineffective stat. But it still exists.)

Happily, there was plenty of offense behind Lynn as well — that's a better thing to consider — and the 13 hits and 7 runs are what led the Cardinals to a 7-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Since a work obligation kept me from watching the game, Michael wrote this first stanza to describe last night's game. In catching the game's highlights, I felt compelled to add on …

Lynn is what he is.
But the offense is what it
Is, bailing him out.

About that offense:
Gorgeous Bourjos 3 for 4.
He likes his new home.

Kolten 2 for 4
With a game-tying triple.
Lance Lynn is grateful.

Lynn really likes Matt,
since Holliday put Cards up.
(Bruce, do you know Cruz?)

Yadi, a homer?
He really does love the Reds.
And we love Yadi.

The Cards go for the sweep (and attempt to stay undefeated at Busch Stadium) this afternoon, with game time 12:45 p.m. Central Time. The starters are Mike Leake and Shelby Miller.
