Thunder And Lightening - Yes!!
The Cardinals swept the Brewers tonight at Miller Park by the score of 6 - 3 in 2:51. This game was over in the top of the third inning after the Cards jumped out to a 5 - 0 lead. During the inning, the Brewers starting pitcher was hit in the head by a line drive and he collapsed to the ground. It was a very emotional moment. I had a difficult time cutting while this player was just laying there. Eventually, he got to his feet and walked off the mound into the clubhouse. Trust me, at the moment when the ball hit the pitcher, this game was over. Yes, a 3-run homer with 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth made this game seem close but the ending was never in doubt. After the injury, the Brewers left the building. They made some hugely embarrassing mental mistakes that even overshadowed the injury to the starting pitcher. The most exciting part of this day was the bus ride from Milwaukee to Chicago. Our bus drove through some of the worst storms I have ever witnessed. We arrived at the hotel at 1:00AM and, now, at 1:30AM the weather is just violent outside. On the bright side - great sleeping weather! Just what I need with a day game at Wrigley tomorrow. 7:00AM will be here before I know it.
