Cardinals 3, Reds 7: The Power of Volquez

Cardinals (70-57)000000012390
Reds (55-70)20000131-7130
W: Volquez (15-5) L: Lohse (13-6)


The Cardinals were hoping to sweep the Reds yesterday, but that failed when they ran into the awesome might of young Edinson Volquez. Not even the wizardry of Kyle Lohse could save them.

Volquez had a no-hitter going for a while, so powerful were his pitches. He left the game after allowing 3 in 7 innings. He struck out 4 and allowed no runs, lowering his ERA to 2.73. Even the suckitude of the Reds was no match for Volquez today.

You know I think Edinson himself might keep the Reds from losing 100 games this year.
