The Cardinals are currently tied with Philly with a score of 0-0 at the end of the top of the second inning. I'm following the game on yahoo right now since I don't have FSN Midwest. If I had the Dish or Direct TV, I would definitely be watching the game. Until I get GameDay Audio, that's the way things will be.
Jason Marquis pitches against Cory Lidle as the Cards hope to move their record to 3-0. The longest winning streak to open the Cardinal season was 7 games in 1962. The worst was 0-6 in 1997.
So far, Jimmy Rollins is 0-4 today and is at 8th on the consecutive games hitting streak. Rollins had a good run but just couldn't get any good hits today. St. Louis leads 4-2 through nine innings. Barring any miracle come back, the Cardinals win 4-2 against the Phillies as they sweep the series and move to 3-0. Jim Edmonds' single in the fifth inning brought in a run for his 1000th career RBI.
W - Jason Marquis
