Pirates @ Cardinals – 1:35 P.M.
Ross Ohlendorf vs. Chris Carpenter

1:45 – Both LaRoches are out of the starting lineup today. Apparently, Adam has the flu. Andy is still benched after 2 poor games. Hopefully the Pirates remember that those were only two games. I wouldn’t mind seeing Andy getting back into the lineup.

3:00 – It’s never easy following baseball from work, but thankfully MLB.com’s GameDay makes it a little easier. The Pirates lead 1-0 in the fifth despite Carpenter throwing a no-hitter. A 2nd inning Pujols error helped Ramon Vazquez (who walked) get around the bases.

3:25 – With two outs in the 7th, Vazquez broke up Chris Carpenter’s no hitter. Still 1-0 Pirates.

3:57 – And now the lead is gone too. Four straight Cardinals’ singles made the score 2-1 Cards. Just like that… we’re 3 outs away from defeat. Maybe we’ll have some more Opening Day magic in store?

4:12 – That’s the end of a tough 2-1 loss. The Cards deserved this game though, with 8 hits, and only 1 for the Pirates. Still, I’m happy to split the opening series in St. Louis… on to Cincy!
