Break out the Brooms

That is what the Cardinals did to us. Chris Carpenter didn't pitch well and Jim Edmonds and Juan Encarnacion didn't do much, but Albert Pujols and Scott Rolen hit the ball out of the yard and Jason Marquis and Mark Mulder had competent starts to down the Phillies. The Phils then couldn't hit the Cardinals bullpen, getting only 1 run in 9 and 2/3 innings. They had a chance in the 2nd game against a wild Jason Isringhausen, but Mike Lieberthal had happy feet and swung early in the count. This team is known for its patience and getting on base, and yet Mike swung early in the count after Izzy had given up 2 walks in the inning already. Little things like this can add up to a bad season.

Let's hope they get it turned around against the Dodgers. Game time 7:05

On pace for 159-3
