Make it Five

Mike WestContributor ISeptember 28, 2008

Five!  Five wins! Ah ah ah!  The Cardinals kept the winning streak going with another win over the Reds tonight, and with only one more game in the season, have a chance to end on a positive note.

Pin this win on Todd Wellemeyer.  The Colonel was good again, giving up just three runs over 6.1 innings, while striking out three.  Wellemeyer finishes the season 13-7, with a 3.71 ERA.  Go ahead and write his name into the starting rotation next season, and use pen.

The Cardinals were able to put up eight runs, which included a two run shot from Troy Glaus, and solo homers from Felipe Lopez and Albert Pujols.  Here’s tonight’s box score.

Kyle Lohse will take the mound for the Redbirds tomorrow afternoon, hoping to put an exclamation point on the end of the season for St. Louis.  He’ll be opposed by lefty Adam Pettyjohn.  Let’s end it on a high note boys.  Sweep!
