quick recap - game 49 - cards 3, padres 1

and therea quick recap as the game thread approaches 1600 comments. colby snatched a homer in impressive fashion. pujols smashed a homer in a long-forgotten fashion. loshe continued to be both good and lucky, working around 3 doubles to allow just one run. he appeared in the 8th, running his pitch count to 118. in the top of the ninth, the cards closed out a tie game (1-1) with 2 runs on a skippy double, a descalso single, a flyball, and a theriot single. the padres could not answer in the bottom of the ninth against salas, the amazing non-closing wunderkind who was not sent back to memphis today.

in closing, dustin moseley would like to say a few words about the pitcher win stat. dustin?

moseley: (crouching on floor of home clubhouse, weeps, sniffing loudly. looks up.) do . . . do you guys know anybody who wants to trade for a starting pitcher?

and there you have it, folks! cards win, 3-1.
