With 46 games left you do not really think of "must wins", but this one is close to that. i can't say whether or not we over acheived for 3+ months until the race is run, but we are in a prolonged slump. Losing Molina has been a huge blow. 

Watched the Pirates lose again last night as they had a shot with two on in the 9th and McCuthen and Alvarez coming up. But lefty Brothers struck both out to end the threat. So the Rox are keeping us from falling out of contenation for the time being.

Lineup: Carpenter 4, Beltran 9, Craig 3, Holliday 7, Freese 5, Jay 8, Cruz 2, Kozma 6, Kelly 1.

Beautiful, sunny day, with current temp 81. Was Family Day before the game with lots of kids on the field.

Three-spot for the Cards in the first. Holliday continues to be hot.

Redbirds hang on for the 8-4 win.

Pirates lose again at Colorado 3-2.

Reds win in extra innings 3-2 (13).

The upcoming Pirate series is, so far, perhaps the biggest home series of the year.

We all knew we would hit a bad strech. It happens to the best teams. 2 out 3 here against the pirates and then start winning series again and this team will be in fine shape come October. Holiday by the way looks like he is starting to heat up(aside from hitting into Double plays). I truely expect this team to play 600 ball from here out.

That was a huge win for the Cards today. After being pounded by the top NL teams Atlanta, Pittsburgh and Los Angles they drop two at home to lowly Chicago so it was important to get a win in the final. Big games by Carpenter, Craig, Freese, Jay ,Holliday and especially Siegrist and Mujica at the end. They responded well to the pressure IMO fighting back after giving up the lead. I hope it continues as well with the Pirates. There was reason for optimism today. biggrinbiggrinbiggrin

GO CARDS!
