Call me naive, but I was really, truly expecting Lance Lynn to shut it down last night. Unfortunately, that didn't happen as he gave up three home runs, matching his single game career high. At least Ryan Jackson's debut this season on the other hand was...

Oh, oh! David Freese went 2 for 3 with a 428 foot home run!

Matt Carpenter hit a triple, extending his hit streak to 6 and his NL- leading hits total to 170. Lil' Carp is now tied with Rogers Hornsby, Sparky Adams, and Frankie Frisch for most doubles by a Cardinals primary second baseman with his double on Wednesday night.

Tonight's match-up against the 1.5 game Central Division leading Pirates will feature A.J. Burnett, a 7-9 righty with a 3.09 ERA and "Bazooka/Machine Gun/ Dancin'/Deadfish handshakin'" Joe Kelly of the second place Cardinals, who boasts a very tidy 7-3 record and 2.82 ERA. The Birdos will look to their temporary "stopper" to shut down the Pirates and gain some pivotal ground in the division.

And now for some links:

Howard Johnson is now a father!

ARod, a specimen of grace and poise.

Just when you thought Cutch couldn't get any cooler...

Five things that have changed since the Pirates last winning season.
