The Cards beat the Diamondbacks in walk off fashion today at Busch Stadium. This 3:24 affair ended with a lead off homerun in the bottom of the 10th inning. This was a game of highs and lows. The Redbirds' starting pitcher threw 7 innings of shutout baseball - high. The DBacks tied the game with a 2-run homerun off the bullpen in the top of the eighth inning - low. The first two batters for the Cards in the bottom of the ninth reached on singles - high. The next three batters in the inning all struck out - low. The Cardinals' lead off hitter in the bottom of the 10th inning homered and the game was over - high. A motto of all professional athletes in any sport is "don't get too high and don't get too low". This also works for a TV sports production team.
