Not long ago, I wouldn't have bet on a sweep of the Pirates. Good to be back in first as Cards enter the last 3 weeks of the season, with 19 games against 5 teams with an average record of 62-77 (only WAS, at 73-69, has a winning record).

Props to the Reds, who are still hanging tough and, IMO, a real threat after climbing back into it. But more props to Waino, who came back from two drubbings to shut down PIT. That's the stuff of champs.

The broadcasters had said he had been tipping pitches his last few starts.

St. Louis Fans

Tonight the Cards were no-hit by MIL's Marco Estrada for 5 and 2/3 innings. With 2 out in the 6th and the Brewers leading 1-0, Matt Carpenter hit a sharp grounder which caromed off Estrada's ankle and bounced to short, play was close but the throw pulled the first baseman off the bag and the no-no bid was over.

Busch Stadium crowd cheered the hit, then gave an extended ovation to Estrada.

Cards on a 4-game win streak, PIT on 3-game win streak. PIT already with a win today, and CIN blasted the Cubs.

I love September.

Wainwright tonight

Waino gave up two runs in the first thanks to a dropped fly ball, but settled down and has contributed 2 hits and 2 RBI tonight in Colorado to help put the Cards up 4-2 in the 6th.

With 11 games to play, STL went into tonight's game one game ahead of PIT and 2.5 ahead of CIN. Just one week after sweeping 3 games in PIT, the Cards have still not managed to open much of a gap in the NL Central. That's because the Pirates went on to sweep the Rangers in Texas, then returned home and took 3 of 4 from the Cubs. The Bucs were looking forward to continuing the long homestand against the lowly Padres on Monday

But the Pods! They win today, they've beaten the Pirates in three straight, and they'll go for the 4-game sweep in Pittsburgh tomorrow.

I give that

Edit: trailing by one in the bottom of the 9th, COL leaves bases loaded as Mujica strikes out Todd Helton. Cards win 4-3 and are 2 games up with 10 to go.

That's moar

Here we are a week later and the Reds have pulled even with the Pirates at two games back of the Cardinals with five to go.

Michael Wacha (WA - kah) has no-hit the Nationals through seven and the Redbirds lead 2-0 tonight at Busch. He's hitting his spots at 97 mph, then dropping the changeup out of sight. It's kinda freaky.

Got an Ozark rendezvous Thurs/Fri, then I think I'll head to STL for the weekend. Cubs are in town for three games to close out the season.

The NL Central will field three playoff teams with 90+ wins each.

Edit: OH HELL Wacha loses the no-no with two out in the ninth as Zimmerman hits a chopper over the mound, juuust out of Wacha's reach, Kozma barehands the throw, pulling Adams off the bag. Matheny immediately pulls Wacha and Rosenthal mops up with 6 pitches.

Meanwhile, PIT leads 6-2 going into the top of the 8th in CHI.

Could be a great day for the Cards, CIN and PIT got beat today and MIL is on their way to beat ATL If that holds true the Cardinals will hold the best record in the NL and have home field advantage throughout the playoffs, well assuming they maintain that record for the next 3 against the Cubs

Thinking about heading to STL for the weekend.... not sure I can pull it off but would LOVE it if I could.

Do it! But good luck scoring Tix for Cards vs. Cubs. Playoff tickets might be an easier grab.

Saw an espn story about that last month, along with an interview with Cards president Bill DeWitt. STL related: I've always thought the Bluenote on the front of the Blues' jerseys was one of the best logos in sports, but I've never really loved their color schemes or uni patterns. Not sure what I'd do differently, but that's not my job.

Anyway.

PIT and Liriano looked good last night...really good. Bucs are 10-9 this year vs the Cards, 7-7 after the All-star break. But the Cards have won the last four, including the sweep at Busch a month ago.

Wainwright vs AJ Burnett in Gm 1, Lynn in Gm 2. AJB has struggled vs. STL this year, and Waino is back strong after a tough August. Don't think PIT's Gm 2 starter has been named.

Damn, Liriano looked good.

Am I the only one that was totally put off by the PIT fans? They acted like jerks, chanting people's names and crap.

No STL fan would ever do such a thing.

I guess 21 years of frustration has them wound a little tight.

Fucking assholes need to learn to be fans of the game, not a team that finally makes it into the playoffs.
