The Best and The Worst
The Cardinals beat the Nationals 8 - 0 in 3:10 tonight in Washington DC. This was a game of exact opposites. The Cards were really, really good and the Nats were really, really bad. Adam Wainright threw a brilliant 2-hitter and the Redbirds had 14 hits. The Cards were flawless on defense and the Nats had 4 errors. The Open of each baseball telecast describes the game of that evening. Tonight's open for our telecast dealt with the matchup of two of the best teams in the National League. The Cardinals fulfilled their part of the bargain. They were exceptional. The Nationals betrayed our open - they were the Houston Astros. The best and the worst was truly on display tonight.
