Getting you caught up on yesterday's VEB happenings

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Here is what went down yesterday at Viva El Birdos:

Today in Birdos history: September 22nd, 2011

Three errors over the final two innings loom large in an 8-6 loss to the Mets. Rafael Furcal misplays a potential double play ball to open the floodgates in a six-run ninth inning outburst. The loss puts St. Louis two games back of Atlanta in the Wild Card hunt with just six to play.

Have a good one,


P.S. A huge credit to the wonderful people at Baseball Reference who make our work here at Viva El Birdos so much easier, this weekly "Today in Birdos history" segment included.
