Cardinals Beat Rusty Tigers 7-2
Anthony Reyes pitched brilliantly last night. Eight innings of four hit two run ball was just what the Cardinals needed to escape their heavy underdog role. The Tiger's flexed their muscles in the first by scoring a run, and the crowd sensed something was going to happen, and happen soon. They were right. It did. And after a double error by 3rd baseman Inge in the fourth inning and home runs by Rolen and Pujois, the rout was on. The final score was 7-2........it wasn't even that close. As the crowd quietly exited the stadium, disappointment and sadness etched on their faces as plain as day, I hope they remember one thing. It's a seven game series, and anything can happen. Last night it did. Tonight, we'll see. It will be Jeff Weaver versus Kenny Rogers for a tie series or a commanding lead. I guess all that talk about a Tiger's sweep has gone out the window. But there's plenty of baseball left to go. The Tigers had better get it in gear tonight, or they will be in a substantial hole. Caused by the week off? We'll find out tonight, shortly after 8, on Fox and FoxHD. And I will say yet again, go Tigers. This is as close to a MUST game as you've had. All year! And it's in Kenny Rogers' hands. For better or worse. We'll all know by 11pm on this clear and cold Sunday morning here in North Central Connecticut. As the fire roars in the fireplace, I bid you adieu. Or goodbye. Whatever, you know what I mean. Thanks for reading, as always.
