And Now I Hate The Cardinals

That's the thing about baseball, all it takes is one game to change everything. Tuesday night, Brewers fans felt on top of the world as we had put the Cardinals 4 1/2 games back in the Wild Card race. Wednesday night, a different story, as the Cardinals came back in front of their home crowd and celebrated like it they had clinched a playoff birth. I know earlier in the week I was settling for the split, but now that it's happened, I'm a little bitter.

The Brewers sent out Manny Parra, who delivered a pretty solid performance, going six innings, giving up one run, and striking out seven. Carlos Villaneuva got out of a bases loaded jam in the seven to keep things going, but David Riske collapsed in the 8th. So that sucked.

Offensively, we did some things, but not enough to win. I'd chat about this more, about as I mentioned, gotta get back to the fantasy draft (it's a long one, and I'm ready for bed.)

Box Score.

Villanueva got pretty cocky with Pujols, and Pujols says that helped wake up the "sleeping giant". Whatever. I'm starting to hate the Cardinals as much as the Cubs after this series.
