that's a winner, folks

Let's hear it for Duncan! and Glaus, Ankiel, Miles, Franklin, Pujols, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
After getting off to a roaring start, the Cards offense threatened to let a 4-0 lead evaporate into a loss, but Rick gave us the advantage back with a solo shot. Then, once again, we were behind going into the eighth and there was very little air left in the stadium. Fortunately for the Redbirds, Tony has never lost faith in Chris Duncan and threw him right into the deep end with a pinch hit opportunity, and Chris gave us a reason to believe--a reason in the shape of a two-run home run to tie it back up. Then in walk-off fashion, with two out, Glaus won it with his second homer of the game. I am so glad I stayed up to watch!
