The Cardinals have a night off tonight, but feel free to hangout here! It can be a bit of a bummer to go into the night off after a loss, so let’s reflect on that time earlier this week when the Cardinals destroyed the Reds. The Birdos got out to an early lead:

What made it rare though was the pitcher they scored early on was Sonny Gray, a pitcher that going into Tuesday’s game sported a sub-2.00 ERA. Apparently scoring this much on a pitcher that has allowed so few runs in that many innings pitched is rare. So rare, it hasn’t happened in over 53 years according to this tweet:

Kinda cool.
