July 22

July 23

Winning pitcher - Jason Marquis (12-7)

July 24
Colorado shuts out Cards 7-0
Losing pitcher - Anthony Reyes (2-4)

Despite the fact that he was named as one of the top prospects in the organization, Anthony Reyes has really struggled this season. Dave Duncan, or even Carp, really needs to work with him.

Coming into last night's game, Chris Duncan was batting .349 in the month of July. I truly feel that we found a permanent left fielder who can bat in the 2 spot.

Milestone watch:
Albert Pujols needs 22 home runs to tie Ken Boyer for 2nd on the Cardinals all-time home runs list with 255.
Jim Edmonds needs 3 home runs to tie Ray Lankford for 4th on the Cardinals all-time home runs list with 228.
Jason Isringhausen needs 7 saves for 250 career saves.
