I’m trying something new – a series wrap-up instead of an individual game wrap-up. And could there be a better series to start with? The Cardinals swept the Pirates at home by slim margins every time requiring extra innings to do it. They played 8 extra innings over the course of the series. Despite Mike Matheny‘s sometimes questionable use of the bullpen (ok, it’s more often than not questionable) and Randy Choate getting his Christmas gift early on a called 3rd strike, they walked off each game. The only fireworks came with Kolten Wong‘s walk-off HR on Sunday, ending a marathon 14 inning game.
