Game 160: Cardinals 6 Pirates 1

New rule: no one is allowed to say Zach Duke "finished 2007 strong" because of last night's start. Just sayin'.

Seriously though, it was nice to see him look competent for once, even if it's only one start against a hobbled St. Louis team that is every bit as much eliminated as we are. Of course, immediately after he departed, John Grablow lived up to his old nickname and turned the game from "feel good end of the year story" to loss #92. The Cardinals beat the Pirates at PNC. It's how the season (kind of) started, and it's how it's ending. Ahh, symmetry.
