Kenny Rogers Shuts Down Cardinals in Game Two Loss

by @ 2:37 am. Filed under 2006 World Series

Nobody said this would be easy.  A lot of people are making a big deal out of Kenny Rogers brown substance on his hands, but the first inning was actually our best of eight innings against him because we actually got a runner to second base.

Jeff Weaver was only okay.  He pitched out of a big jam in the fourth but he continually got into trouble.  He went five innings and gave up three runs on nine hits and a walk.

The only inning worth mentioning was the ninth.  The Cardinals finally saw someone other then Kenny Rogers and almost made Todd Jones pay.  All with two outs, the Cardinals scored a run AND loaded up the bases.  Yadier Molina couldn’t come through again though so now we head to game three even at one game a piece.

It’ll be Chris Carpenter going up against Nate Robertson on Tuesday.  I like our chances.
