There were 13 innings played with 13 total hits in this 4:14 affair which the Cardinals won 4 - 3. I claim complete responsibility for this extra inning game. Going into the top of the 8th inning with the Reds leading 3 - 2 I said " The Cards are going to score in this inning and we are going to be here awhile." I took the understandable cursing from the crew as I understood the severity of my statement. Sure enough, a homerun was hit to tie the game and, sure enough, the cascade of cursing was sent in my general direction. A day game tomorrow with rain in the forecast. My mouth remains shut.
