Ted Lilly Kyle Lohse
1-4, 6.46 3-0, 2.36
Ted Lilly has been brutal so far this year, with an ERA north of six. Let's hope the Cards don't help him get out of that funk.
Ankiel hitting in the six hole today; I like it. That should give him a chance to use both his power and his speed. Someone will hopefully be on base when he comes up to bat, giving him an opportunity to bring them in, and with the bottom of the lineup coming to bat, there's less risk in letting him do a little running, if the chance presents itself. I think this is a good spot in the lineup for him.
Let's get the win today, secure the series, and go for the sweep tomorrow! All in front of a national audience!
