Cards Continue Cruising, Win 7th Straight: An 8/11 Recap

Cards Continue Cruising, Win 7th Straight: An 8/11 Recap

The Braves could not contain all this offense. Last i spoke with you, the Cardinals lost to Homer Bailey and looked like they were probably done for the year with winning baseball games. Lost to the Reds 3-2 despite a solid Lance Lynn outing. Today, as I live and breathe, .513. We are fully 3 games over .500, and i never thought this team would agree to do that.

Even in the individual game. I love...
