Week Recap so far

August 6
Milwaukee 1, St. Louis 7
Winning pitcher - Jeff Suppan (9-6)
SV - Jorge Sosa (4)
HR: Juan Encarnacion (16), Scott Rolen (15)

August 7
St. Louis 13, Cincinnati 1
Winning pitcher - Jeff Weaver (5-12)
HR: Chris Duncan (8), Scott Spiezio (6), Yadier Molina (4) Scott Rolen (16)

The Cardinals offense was on target and was much needed momentum.

August 8
St. Louis 3, Cincinnati 10
Losing pitcher - Jason Marquis (12-10)

August 9
St. Louis 7, Cincinnati 8
Losing pitcher - Jason Isringhausen (3-5)
HR: Jim Edmonds (17), Scott Spiezio (7)

The home run by Jim Edmonds was his sixth career grand slam. Third baseman Scott Rolen left the game early with back spasms. Had Izzy not blown the save, Carp would have won.

August 10
St. Louis 6, Cincinnati 1
Winning pitcher - Anthony Reyes (4-5)
HR: Chris Duncan 2 (9, 10), Jim Edmonds (18), Scott Spiezio (8)

Jim Edmonds is definitely finding his bat and is hitting .321 in the month of August this season. His 18th home run today tied him with Ray Lankford for 4th all-time as it was his 228th as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals Anthony Reyes pitched a solid start and is starting to become the pitcher we know that he can be.

Milestone watch:
Albert Pujols needs 20 home runs to tie Ken Boyer for 2nd on the Cardinals all-time home runs list with 255.
Jason Isringhausen needs 5 saves for 250 career saves.
Tony La Russa needs to manage 10 games to tie Bucky Harris for for 3rd all-time at 4408 games.
Ronnie Belliard needs 3 hits for his 1000th career hit.

John Rodriguez was sent down to Memphis as Brad Thompson was called up.

I like Whitey Herzog but I don't like the idea of him going to manage to Chicago Cubs at all.

Talk about a complete break down, Travis Hanson is slumping badly.

Walt Jockettyy did check in on Quad Cities.
