Writing this while cruising at 37,000 feet on our way to Los Angeles. The 5-run bottom of the first inning took care of any drama in this contest as the Cards beat the Brewers 7 - 4 in 2:40 today at Busch Stadium. Despite this game being over before it was over, there was a nice flow to the game and a nice flow to the show today. The key moment of the game/telecast was when the Brewers third baseman flew awkwardly into the stands in foul territory near third base. The game paused for a while before the player walked off the field and into the clubhouse. Our announcers didn't speculate and we waited with our replays until we saw that the player was not badly injured. To tell the truth, I found it hard to believe that he wasn't more badly injured than he was. A scary moment in an otherwise vanilla game.
