|3-1, 2.60||0-3, 5.26|
here's a rematch of the opening day that wasn't; rained after 3 or 4 innings. it might rain again tonight, but they should be able to get it in.
ankiel's throw in the first inning was more than just a pretty exhibition of throwing prowess; it got looper out of a 1st-inning jam. the first two men had reached against looper in that inning with the cards leading only 1-0; the next hitter would have been garrett atkins, the rocks' leader in HR and RBI, with looper already up around 20 pitches for the inning. ankiel got looper out of that confrontation. by the time he took the mound again, he led 4-0.
