MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at St. Louis Cardinals Joe Puetz-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Friday, everyone! Frankly, it stinks that the Cardinals are off today after yesterday’s home opener, highlighted by Nolan Arenado’s game-winning, two-run homer in the eighth inning.

Nolan’s Bomb Gives Cardinals 3-1 Opening Day Win

(Good thinking here, Cat..)

Friday’s day off will be good for a bullpen like St. Louis’s that has already logged 29 innings this season — the third most in the National League. It’ll also do Paul Goldschmidt some good; Goldy sat out of yesterday’s home opener, dealing with back tightness..

The Cardinals and Brewers will be back in action on Saturday afternoon, with Carlos Martinez up against Adrian Houser.

Have a good weekend!
