The Pirates defeated the Cardinals tonight 10 - 5 in 3:06 at Busch Stadium. This game was a sandwich which included good ingredients with bad bread. The Bucs scored 7 runs in the 1st inning and 3 runs in the 9th inning - bad bread. In between the bad bread the Cardinals outplayed the Bucs - good ingredients. In fact, after the bottom of the 7inning the Cars trailed 7 - 5 and they had all the momentum. Members of our TV team sensed a victory and it sure seemed likely to come true. Members of the Pirates TV team were also quite nervous. Alas, the final piece of bread - the top of the 9th inning occurred - and the sandwich was completed. Bad bread - good ingredients.
