The Rockies beat the Cardinals tonight 3 - 2 in 3:00. There was a 2-run homerun by the Cardinals in the first inning and a 3-run homerun by the Rockies in the third inning. That was it. I checked back into baseball history and discovered that this was the most nondescript 3 - 2 game in MLB history. There were 278 pitches thrown in this game and only 2 mattered. TV crews are always looking for memorable moments in every game realizing that a "moment" can occur with each pitch. I remember 2 pitches from this game. I have no recollection of the other 276 pitches.
