Hurray! At last! Today really was the day! Our long Cardinals nightmare is over! That’s finally a winner!
And what a way to break out of a slump — 13 runs on 17 hits, while holding the Pirates scoreless and only allowing five hits. The 13 runs are, of course, more than the Cardinals scored in total during the entire seven-game losing streak.
The streak that thankfully is now in the past. And hopefully the cold bats are as well.
