    Nice win! Guys put the ball in play in that 6th, which made the difference. Good to see Carlson turn on that pitch. Maybe he can get some confidence and have a nice final week.

    Tip of the cap to Ponce.

    I’d go to war with him any day.

    Not only back to .500, but they completed their 10th doubleheader tonight. This isn’t easy going.

    It is a good thing we got the sweep. The Cubs, Reds, and Brewers all won tonight. We just need to fight and claw for second place.

    Cardinals I’ve liked who brought only their game and their charities to the ball park.

    What charities, MM? I’ve known about Holliday, Jay, Wainwright, and Goldy (who wasn’t on your list), but not the rest.

    Add Goldy and Pujols.
    Almost all of these guys at one time or another had charity events such as golf tournaments or cornhole contests or Waino’s game (is it NFL or NHL). A while back I read an article regarding professional players income and it stipulated that most of the investment counselors advised forming a foundation or charity that would help improve their reputation and maybe even the bottom line(?). Nobody is forced to do it but it has become an expected thing of most professionals. The degree to which they participate is pretty much equal to their success as a professional player. Even Carlos Martinez is very active with a charity and a lot of good publicity from it. Voit I am not sure of but when he gets that big contract I am sure there will be something founded with his name on it. Matt Adams I will admit has to find a permanent home to get active in the charity business.
