What a win? Solid in all respects, even after the rough patch(es) Lynn and the defense had.
And the bullpen is really starting to come together.
Though, I have to say, I have no idea what Matheny is doing with these pitch counts. It's reminding me of Dusty during his Cubbie days. We're going to have a bunch of dead armed starters by September if he keeps letting guys throw 120+ pitches every outing.
I don't think the Cardinals are in first place because of luck, but I thought that game last night stunk. The go ahead run came off of a ball flying off of the pitcher's foot, barf. Wigginton would not have even been on base if it wasn't for Ankiel wearing a pitcher's glove (this is major league baseball isn't it? why would they play this man when he doesn't have his own equipment with him?) Then Holliday hit a 2 run bomb off of some old dude that looks like a used car salesman.
