Cairo already had his hit this month. so not expecting much this AB.
"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
Cairo hit it hard but grounds out to Marmol.
Cards and Phillies headed to extra innings.
Paul hitting for Cueto.
X Man up.
Another fantastic start by Cueto: 8IP, 3H, 0ER, 2BB, 3K
Paul grounds out to 2nd. 3-0 Reds mid 9th.
WGN brings up Cardinal brawl as we go to the bottom of the ninth. Pitiful.
Chapman coming in.
Barney, Rizzo and Soriano due up
Jeremy Horst pitching for Philly....w/ a 1.26 earnie.
Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand
This is needed badly, the win. Hope Chappy comes through.
The book says you insert Chapman here. No deviation allowed.
Loved seeing Chappy start off with the breaking ball.
