What a win, what a win, what a win, what a mighty good win!
Is everyone okay?
Remember when Shelby gave up the three-run homer to Ramirez in the 1st and we were all like "Oh no!"?
And then remember when we started Matting and double-ing and we cut the lead to 3-2 and we were all like "Woohoo!"?
And do you remember when they scored anothern' and it was 4-2 and we were like "NOOOO!"?
And then... and then does anyone remember the double-ing and we tied the game?
THEN... THEN do you remember the Adams SMASH and we were like "HELL YEAH! It's 6 - 4"
And then Mujica came in and gave up a run and we were like "Oh crud." THEN he loaded the bases and we were like "OH.... OH PLEASE, NO. MATHENY... BLAH BLAH."
Then Axford came in and we were all like "NARRATIVE". Then the game was tied by a Ramirez infield dribbler and we were like "POOP."
BUT THEN Blazek was in to hold the tie and we were all like "DOUBLE NARRATIVE." Wong walked, Marp got his 53 double of the year and tied with STAN "THE MAN" MUSIAL for most doubles in a season by a Cardinal lefty, putting the runners and 2nd and 3rd with no outs. Then BELTRAN BELTED ONE THAT MADE DAN ACT LIKE IT WAS OUT BUT IT REALLY WASN'T BUT THAT IS OKAY BECAUSE WE SCORED THE GO AHEAD RUN ANYWAY. Cardinals lead 7 - 6. And we were like "WOOOOO!"
Then Carlos Martinez came to close it out in 1-2-3 fashion AND MOWED DOWN THE BREWERS LIKE A FEW GRAINS OF SAND IN A SUMMER TSUNAMI. Yawn.
Phew. That was fun.
LET'S NEVER, EVER, EVER...
DO IT AGAIN.
On a serious note, something may seriously be wrong with Chief. Let's hope the Cards can find a solution and get through this final push.
On an awesome note, the Pirates lost today! 26 above .500 and 2 up in the division!
UPDATE: THE DODGERS JUST LOST PUTTING THE CARDINALS TWO UP FOR THE SECOND BEST RECORD IN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE AND 1 BACK OF THE BRAVES FOR FIRST PLACE.
