How Do They Do It?
The Cards defeated the Tribe 2 - 1 today in 3:12 thus taking the series 2 games to 1. How is it possible that a team can score 10 runs in 3 games AND strikeout 40 times and still win the series? One at-bat during today's contest was all it took for the victory. A 2-run homer in the top of the 8th inning was the difference. So, in a game that lasted 3 hours and 12 minutes, there was only 1 at-bat that meant anything - 1. In game 1 of this series there was 1 big inning. In game 2 the Redbirds collected 1 hit and in today's rubber game there was only 1 at-bat that meant anything. I'm beginning to think this team is special.
