Cardinals vs. ChiSox Game 2

St. Louis Cardinals vs. Chicago White Sox (NL/AL)

Busch Stadium-St. Louis, MO:  We were back at Busch the next morning for a day game, and I honestly couldn’t believe how big the crowd was.  There were 38,000 fans the night before, but a day game in the middle of the week drawing 37,000 was amazing.  We got to the ballpark as early as we could, and scarfed down some $10 hot dogs before game time.  We had nice seats in the outfield’s lower level, which gave us a different view of the game.  It was a hot day, but the breeze and cloud cover was our saving grace.

This was another solid game for the home town Cards.  Starting pitcher Carlos Martinez blasted his first ever home run to give St. Louis the early lead.  Dexter Fowler added to that with a two-run homer of his own in the seventh inning.  Martinez pitched a solid 7.1 innings, giving up one run on five hits while striking out five.  Bud Norris earned the four-out save with two strike outs.  The White Sox came back late in the game to make it interesting, but the Cards held on for the win.  Yadi Molina was 2-3 in the game, also.  Final:  Cardinals 3, White Sox 2.

What a fun day, and again I’m blown away from the love and support for this team here in St. Louis.  Despite the cost, these were some fun games to go to, and a must for any baseball fan. St. Louis has some nice areas and fun things to do, so I’ll probably get the kids out this way at some point.
