Alan Craig’s leaping catch at the wall saved the weekend for St. Louis. They beat the Pods 9-6 Friday, after the bullpen allowed four runs in 1 1/3 innings to almost spoil Jake Westbrook’s strong game. Lance Lynn got beat up yesterday, allowing 4 runs in a 5-3 loss. Wain-O pitched decently today, but Mujica put runners on second and third with two outs and, had pinch hitter Jeff Gryorko’s ball evaded Craig’s glove, it might have been doom. They got out of it, 3-2.
Onto Philly. 66 games to go, 24 against the Pirates/Reds. Pitching not back on track yet, it appears. Stocking up on Maalox.
