Holy crap, Theodore is 13-7 after having that atrocious start this year? Neat.

It would be nice if we could call this one a mulligan and the Pirates beat the Brewers.

I wouldn't be completely shocked to see the Cubs make a move for a right handed pinch hitter. I don't think anyone trusts Ronny Cedeno in a pressure pinch hitting situation. Johnson is usually ok but looked bad swinging at ball 4.

Ah well first loss since the debacle against the Nationals, I'll take it.

No closer to a division title, but looks like Cards are in trouble. Hopefully knock that number down to a 16.

and Pujols homers just as I type that to make it 8-5 Astros headed to the bottom of the 7th.

Remember LATROY HAWKINS striking out three Cubs in a mop-up role shortly after being acquired by the 'Stros? He struck out the side. I chalked it up at the time as a case of the Cubs wanting to get the game over with.

Well, he kept it up. So far in August he's made 13 appearances, pitched 10.0 innings, allowed no runs on 3 hits and struck out 16!

Houston is using him as their set-up man for Valverde. It seems to suit him...

  • OK Marlins -- take 'em down. Fernandez, at home, tomorrow for the Fish.

    Gotta say, though -- as much as I can't stand them, the Cardinals have had some very impressive late-inning wins against premier closers.

  • Very impressive that he hit a 3-2 curve ball. Such a dynamic ballplayer. If he ever learns the strike zone....

  • Sure is fun to watch them score finally. To think they were no-hit until the 7th...

  • Got to admit it - it was comforting seeing Rondon come out for the eighth after just taking a two run lead ... And put the hammer down with a 7 pitch inning. Good stuff
