The Cardinals beat the Diamondbacks at Busch Stadium tonight by the score of 8 - 0.
Adam Wainwright was the winning pitcher.
He threw 102 pitches in 6 1/3 innings allowing 5 hits, 0 runs, 3 walks, and 7 strikeouts.
A typical home game performance by Adam.
Albert Pujols was 3-4 with 2 homeruns, a double and 5 RBI's.
A typical Albert performance.
As I have stated in previous blogs, every TV baseball director loves a well-pitched game with a nice pace.
Adam Wainwright supplied this with a wonderful performance.
Chapter 11 of my book Cutting The Game, Inside Television Baseball From The Director's Chair (www.cuttingthegame.com) is titled The Homerun.
The most fun a TV baseball director can have during a game/telecast is cutting a homerun.
Tonight, I was fortunate to cut two Albert Pujols homeruns!
This was a very enjoyable baseball game to cut.
Thank you Adam wainwright and thank you Albert Pujols.
