all's well that ends well

Poor Looper. That tenth win eludes him still. He had a rough outing and got laid into pretty good in the fourth inning before being replaced on the mound by (shudder) the bullpen. Against all odds, however, five relievers threw for the Redbirds and held on to win (PĂ©rez picked up the W). 

The Cards went 5-4 for the road trip and 2-4 on the season against KC. 

And it was Jason LaRue day at Kauffman Stadium. He was involved in a HUGE collision at the plate (in which he held onto the ball and got the out), and then hit a 2-run homer and later a 2-RBI triple.

Chris Duncan had two hits and and an RBI in the game. 

Albert hit home run #19, leaving him now ONE shy of 300 for his career. 

Schumaker did his best Rick Ankiel impression by throwing a bullet to LaRue to get the runner trying to score. 

Aaron Miles has now gotten hits in 11 consecutive games.
