Great Game Bad Day
What a game! The Cardinals latest phenom pitcher Michael Wacha pitched 7 innings of 2 hit, 1 run baseball and was just outstanding facing only 2 over the minimum. He left with a 2 - 1 lead. That's the good news. Now the bad. The game started with a 1 hour rain delay. With the Cards leading 2 - 1 entering the ninth inning, the bullpen gave up the lead. After the Royals had scored 3 runs and had the bases loaded with no outs in the top of the ninth inning another rain delay occurred. 4 hours and 32 minutes later the game resumed. 12 minutes later the game ended. 1st pitch at 7:16 pm. Final out at 3:14 am - 7 hours and 58 minutes later. It is 4:37 am and I am going to bed. Bad day indeed. Oh yea, rain in the forecast for tomorrow - in fact, all weekend.
