Cards Win!

I was working this afternoon on a bunch of code that I'm cleaning up and following the progress of the Cards / Dodgers game sporadically on my home computer and my smartphone. When the Dodgers scored twice in the sixth to take a 2-0 lead, I was worried. But it was also 6 PM, so I decided to knock off and go watch the end of the game on TV.

And the Cards failed to score in the bottom of the sixth. But in the bottom of the seventh, a single up the middle by Holliday that was just out of the reach of Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon, followed by a line single up the middle by Peralta on a ball that just ticked off Hanley Ramirez's glove, was then followed by a three-run homer by Cards first baseman Matt Adams. And the 2-0 deficit was a 3-2 lead.

The top of the eighth was pretty straightforward; the bottom of the ninth less so, but 3-2 was the final score and there was much rejoicing in St. Louis.

Next up: Giants or Nationals.

The Cards are seeing a lot of those teams in the postseason (as well as the Dodgers).

I think there's a reason.
