bouncing back

It seems like every time someone drops the ball, someone else comes back and picks it up for the Cards. Kyle Lohse did the picking up today. He pitched 8 innings and only gave up 2 runs. He retired the last 12 batters he faced. He saved the bullpen and picked up his 8th win on the season. He brought peace to the war-torn countries of the Middle East. Okay, so maybe not that last one, but it was still a good game and a much-needed win for the Redbirds.

Tony called it, "a hell of a ballgame," and I agree.

In other news:

  • Adam Kennedy hit his first home run of the year.

  • Joe Mather and Mark Worrell hopped the bus back to Memphis.

  • Jason Isringhausen and Anthony Reyes rejoined the Daddy-Birds in STL.

  • Chris Carpenter's rehab hit a pothole.

  • Mark Mulder and Matt Clement are both scheduled to start today at Springfield.
