Final Score: Nationals 10, Cardinals 0.
Dame of the Game:
Gio Gonzalez: Win, 9 IP, 5 H, 3 BB, 0 R, 8 K. Gio is a rock. And more of a stalagmite than a stalactite. He rises up on a daily basis, and doesn’t hang things at all.
Shame of the Game:
Adam Wainwright: Loss, 2.2 IP, 9 H, 3 BB, 6 ER, 3 K. Clearly, starting Adam was the Wainwrong decision for the Cardinals.
The Cardinals are what everyone has been hoping for. Except some christian boys, they’ve already been traumatized quite a bit. Since coming into Washington, St. Louis has been outscored 18-1. What can we use to explain this offensive showing? Has Mark McGwire been peddling PEDs to the team? No, probably not. He has bad knees, so pedaling can be painful. Maybe it’s just the rejuvenated feeling of coming home again after a bad road trip. Only when I come home after going on the road, I’m exhausted and usually just sleep and ignore my obligations. That’s why I’m not playing baseball I suppose. Or doing anything gainful.
