As of tonight, our run differential is 1 run better than the St. Louis Cards.
This is significant for a number of reasons, including:
(1) It's the first time all season (and likely in many seasons) we have been ahead of them;
(2) On May 4 of this year, they led us in run differential by a whooping 72 runs. Since that time we have slowing but surely gained 73 runs on them; and
(3) It's the Cards and we lead them in the standings and in run differential, meaning it's not luck. Over the last 3 months we have been the better team, and it's by a reasonable margin.
Maybe the race isn't over after all?????
