While there wasn't much to say about the Reds' game tonight, the Cardinals were busy beating the Phillies to the tune of 10-2 this evening. Albert Pujols has found his home run swing (I guess the home run derby was a good thing--or possibly sitting the All-Star bench) and hit two of them tonight. The rest of the team followed suit, and they collectively scored six on the night.
After they lost 4-10 yesterday and 3-13 the day before that, I'm not prepared to declare that they're making a run for it, but you never know. It's sort of fascinating to watch a team with a recent tradition of winning.
