Cards, Wells Choke.

Well, not only did the Wells blow the game for the Cards tonight, but I lost a $5 bet to my roomate as well.  I said Wells would let up less than four runs, and after the 4th inning and 100 pitches, I declared victory.  Then LaRussa decided to send Wells back out… and he gave up a three-run homer.  I like LaRussa, and I understand he wanted Wells to get the win, but he struggled through four innings and his pitch count was up. LaRussa is right more often than not, but this was a mistake that cost the Cards the game.

On the bright side, the club is still getting hits. Molina, Eckstein, and Encarnacion had multi-hit games Wednesday. And the bullpen would be a much bigger force if we could give them the lead more often.

The Cards have Thursday off, and then begin interleague play against the American League Champion Detroit Tigers
