Wong wins it [Cardinals 7, Nationals 5]

Cards WIN

The score was 5-0 Cardinals in the 3rd inning and it looked like we were going to roll to an easy win and an offensive blowout. Then John Lackey got into trouble and forgot to cover first base and it was 5-5. It stayed at 5-5 until the 8th inning when Kolten Wong doubled and got his 3rd RBI of the game. Matt Adams added a HR for insurance in the 9th and Trevor Rosenthal went to two 3-2 counts but got the save without allowing a base runner. Despite the win, the bullpen continues to be a worry, John Lackey didn’t make it to 6 innings and had this game gone to extra innings it would have been real trouble. Kolten Wong was the real hero of the game, he had a HR in the 2nd inning – his first of the year, as well as making some outstanding defensive plays. It was rocky in places, but the Cardinals bounced back from only scoring one run the night before and hit 3 HRs – which they needed to win this one. Day game today, hopefully Michael Wacha goes deep and saves the bullpen.

    After the first few rounds of the rotation, I feel like Lackey might be the best to replace if Garcia ever gets ready… but I’m not sure how that would play out with Lackey.
