Cardinals Take Game One in Blow Out Win

by @ 3:47 am. Filed under 2006 World Series

This was a game even I was writing off.  Anthony Reyes came in to pitch as a stop gap because of how long the Cards series went with the Mets and not only did he keep us in the game, he exceeded expectations.  He ran into trouble in the first inning and gave up a run, but then he didn’t give up a hit until the seventh inning.  In all, the Tigers managed only four hits and a single walk.  Not too bad for a rookie with a pretty poor ERA.

Scott Rolen answered the call in the second inning and he tied it up with a solo shot.  Then a three run third busted this game open.  The inning was capped off by a two run shot by Albert Pujols.  The floodgates closed for a bit but in the sixth inning, the Cards scored three more runs to effectively finish things up.

It was somewhat of a sloppy game.  Five errors between the two teams.

Tonight we’ll see if Jeff Weaver can continue his post season success.  He has some extra motivation because the Tigers were a team that traded him away.  Kenny Rogers will throw for the Tigers and he hasn’t given up a run in two post season starts.  Then again, he hasn’t faced Albert Pujols yet.
