Must Win BB

It's hard to say that game three of the World Series was a must win game for the Cardinals, given that the series was tied at one game a piece going in. But when you're at home and the ace of your staff is starting, well, yes, you really need to win that game.

The good news was that Carpenter pitched a great game. The better news was that the Cards scored five runs, which turned out to be four more than Carpenter actually needed. Mind you, three of the runs came on a wild throw and a wild pitch from the Tigers pitchers, but you've got to accept gifts graciously when they're given to you.

So the Cards go up two games to one and game four is tomorrow. Since daisy_knotwise will be out shopping for decorations for the baby shower with marniegucciard and Bonnie, there's no chance of recording, so I guess I'm free to watch the game.
