Cardinals Game 1: Rockies 2, Cardinals 1



Yeah, I know this was last night’s game, but I stayed up late to watch it and didn’t have a chance to write about it until now.

God continued to show his love for the Rockies, last night, stewarding them to a 2 to 1 victory over the Cardinals. Obviously, the All-mighty was disgusted by the turn of events in the game on Opening Day, sending in His rains to cancel the game before the Cardinals’ lead would be official. It’s like His Great Omniscience knew the Rockies would fare better the next day.

Tired of the Rockies being God’s team jokes yet? Okay, I’ll lay off it a bit.

Kyle Lohse pitched great in his first start for his new team. Unfortunately for the Cardinals, their former sucky pitcher Kip Wells did almost as well.

Yadier Molina, on pace for 162 home runs this season, provided the sole offense for the redbirds in the fifth, but that lead bullpen lost the lead in the 8th.

Ryan Franklin got the loss, and Taylor Bucholz got the win, with Manny Corpas getting his first save.

The two teams play again right now! Todd Wellemeyer’s going against Aaron Cook. The Cardinals even have a lead already. No word on when the man upstairs will make His appearance.
