Duncan blasts cards to sweep
chris duncan was the man yesterday. he did not start the game, but he did pretty much end it.
thats right, C-Dunc came in to pinch hit for so taguchi (who amazingly was 3 for 3 on the day) and hit a solo homer to give the cards a one run lead in the ninth.
wainwright was solid but not spectacular like he was in his start against houston. he pitched 6.2 innings, gave up two earned runs on seven hits and four walks and he also struck out four.
springer and flores combined to pitch a scoreless inning then ryan franklin came in and got the job done. he pitched 1.1 innings and picked up the win. the guy has been great early on this season and i hope this continues. tlr has made franklin his primary setup man for izzy, at least for now.
so, at the end the cards edged out the buccos, 3-2.
