Well things seemed to be going ok until the bottom of the 6th when Lohse sort of fell apart. I can’t say I question the Cardinals’ decision to leave him in as long as they did because their bullpen did them no favors, but I do sort of question the decision not to start Garcia on full rest especially since he matches up better against the Phillies left handed line up.
Tonight they’re going with Carpenter against Lee which means Garcia will get a single start at best. Or worst, these are best 3 of 5 so they can’t possibly get eliminated until they get back to St. Louis.
They came back with 3 in the 9th which is an encouraging sign if you’re rooting for the Cardinals and Lee is not invulnerable so we shall see what we shall see.
That’s why they play the games.
Coverage starts at 8:30 pm ET on TBS.

This was fun.
