Don't be fooled. The Cards were playing the Umpires more this series than the Giants. Horribly inconsistent strikezones. Last night's game during the ninth was the worst. Ludwick and Duncan both called out on what was clearly a ball each time.
All in all I am really happy with the way the Cards are losing...losing close games. It's a sign of good things.
Ludwick is playing some great ball.
What would the outcome have been if that first pitch to Pujols hadn't been a wild pitch? Bummer...
