In beating the Chicago Cubs today 6-1, the St. Louis Cardinals did something they haven’t done in a week: win two games in a row.
Yay! A winning streak! Adam Wainwright finally won his 14th game! The Pirates lost! The Cardinals are only 1 game back from the National League Central division lead!
How did today’s victory come about? That’s where you come in. Here are your 6-word summaries of today’s game.
Waino is Bueno. High Sock Sunday
Jon Jay, Mr. August. On fire!
Waino great…Jay awesome…Matheny moronic.
(I asked Margarita why Matheny was moronic. Her response: “1 out no one on…Siegrist pitching is 6-1…he brings Rosenthal in…26 pitches thrown including 2 walks.”)
Waino was Waino. Jay stays hot!

So there you go — and thanks to all for your contributions! For more than a 6-word summary on the game, here’s the recap from Jenifer Langosch at Cardinals.com and one from Rick Hummel at the STLToday.com.
Now it’s off to Milwaukee for the Cardinals (they have to just be riding a bus up there, right?) where they play the Brewers for the first time in three months — and the chance for a 3-game winning streak for the first time since sweeping the Phillies July 23-25. Tomorrow’s game is at 7:10 p.m. Central with Shelby Miller and Marco Estrada the starters.
Let’s keep these positive streaks going!
Mike is never moronic. Geez. I don’t agree with every move he makes, but come on.
Loved seeing JJ have such a great day, and Waino too. I’d have liked to have seen the bus ride up to Milwaukee with Koz, Shelby, Wacha and Kolten dressed as stewardesses, as supplied by [Chris] Carp.
