STL vs. PIT, 5/25/05
Man, oh man. The Redbirds are tearing it up tonight. Eckstein with a two run homer, Molina two ribbies, two hits and a run! Put that guy in the five hole, please, I'm kidding. And now, batting second, Grud smacks an RBI single, making it 6-0 and saving me from cursing him with my blog post (see below). Now, I know it's the Pirates, but this is not insignificant. Mark Redman, starting for the Bucs, has been great this season. He came into the night with a 2.78 ERA. In fact, the Pirate starters have been pretty good. All of them have sub-4.00 ERAs, except for Oliver Perez, who should be the ace of the staff, and he's looking better in his last game. I have a feeling the PIT management is glad (especially if they purposely engineered it) he didn't face the Cards, so that his recovering confidence didn't take a hit. End of the 7th: Holy Molina! 4 for 4 with 4 RBIs! Hopefully, this secures the lad's spot above the Mendoza Line.
