Game 44: Cardinals 9 Pirates 4

Stop me if you've heard any of the following before:

  • Zach Duke roughed up for 11 hits in 4 and 2/3 innings. Throw in two walks and no strikeouts for good measure.
  • Terrible defense to boot. Heh. To boot. Funny stuff there.
  • 11 runners left on base, 7 in scoring position with two outs.
  • The bullpen failed to keep the Cardinals from widening an already big lead.
You know where this is headed. You know exactly what I'm going to say. You were probably thinking it while you were watching the game tonight (though I'll admit, I saw none of this one, though then again the Greensboro Grasshoppers were probably better). Come on now. It's not that painful. Say it with me.

Same. Old. Pirates.
