St. Louis gets the win on the road

Tonight in Game 1 of the World Series, the Cardinals scored seven runs and only allowed two by the Tigers. Anthony Reyes pitched eight innings. The Great One and Scottie each hommered.

Game 2 probables are Weaver for the Cards and Kenny Rogers for Detroit.

I was quite pleased to see Pujols and Rolen both get out of their funk. The Great One has not been too bad in the postseason so far, but his brilliance as seen last year with the famous home run at Houston had not been seen until tonight. Rolen gave us all a scare with his collision rounding third. Bad Scott! Bad! Don't put your shoulder into that situation!

Game 2 is tomorrow night once again in Detroit.

If you're going to talk about sports on a Catholic blog, why don't you mention the Irish's come from behind win to beat UCLA this afternoon?! Shame. Shame.

It was good to see The Great One and Scottie produce. It gives me hope for the rest of the series.

Notre Dame's win yesterday was impressive, but it doesn't match the win they had earlier this season up at MSU was it? That was a great win that will be remembered in Irish lore for decades to come.
