By The Numbers
The Cardinals beat the Cubs at Busch Stadium today by the score of 5 - 3. There were 3 sections of today's game/telecast. Let's go inside the numbers. Going into the bottom of the 7th inning the Redbirds were leading 4 - 1 and the game was 1 hour and 54 minutes old. Then the rain came and segment 2 began. The rain delay lasted 3 hours and 21 minutes. The remainder of the game, segment 3, took 46 minutes to play. 2 hours and 40 minutes to play the game wrapped around a 3 hour 21 minute rain delay. A fairly short game but an extremely long day. My brain is mush and I am wiped. Off day tomorrow and we fly to San Diego. Thank God!!
