Cards vs. Cubs

This was the first of four series to be played against the rivals this season and it was refreshing to watch most of the series on television this past weekend. I say most as it was the Kentucky Derby this past weekend so coverage was split accordingly. St. Louis took two out of three and Izzy redeemed himself in game 3 for his blown save during game 1 which led to Skip Schumaker's walk-off home run in extra innings to win the game.
