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.
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.
