Cardinals 6, Diamondbacks 8: Dunn and Eckstein, Together at Last

Cardinals (74-64)0230010006120
Diamondbacks (70-67)01111220-8121

Apparently, I missed the Diamondbacks acquiring David Eckstein for their infield needs down the stretch. Yesterday, both the former Cardinal and the former Red Adam Dunn patrolled the same side of the infield for Arizona.

Dunn hit his 35th home run of the year and Eckstein drove in a couple against his old team to propel the team to a come-from-behind win.

The win kept Arizona 2.5 games ahead of Los Angeles, who also won today. The loss for St. Louis, has me calling their season done. They’re a good team–better than expected, by far–and they’ve put in a good 2008, but I think it’s over now. Time for them to start playing spoiler. I imagine they’ll do a far better job of it than the Reds.
