The Cards defeated the Brewers tonight by the score of 6 - 1 in exactly 3 hours. This game was special in that two Cardinals pitchers made their Major League debuts tonight in back to back innings which was the first time that had happened for St. Louis since 1990. The first rookie got his three outs on 14 pitches of which 8 were strikes. And the second rookie retired his 3 batters on 6 pitches of which all were strikes. The bullpen has been a trouble spot for the Redbirds all season so the bullpen's performance tonight added some optimism for the Cardinal faithful. This was another quality telecast from the solid Milwaukee crew. Our best shot of the night showed Carlos Beltran offering tips to a Brewers rookie. Beltran was apparently showing the rookie the best way to utilize his eyes while at the plate. And, this shot was captured during pre-game batting practice. Good TV crews capture moments during a game. Great crews capture moments before games, during games and between innings. A special game for the Redbirds rookies. A special moment for our telecast.
