If they wanted me to leave before they won, they could have told me earlier.
Hero: Joe Kelly. “I throw shutout innings now. Shutout innings are cool.”
Goat: Matt Carpenter. No hits (though an RBI and a walk) out of the leadoff slot, and you know how I feel about that.
May not get a chance to update again but will try, if only for my sanity.
(Disclosure: I wrote this late in the game but was unable to stay conscious for the rest given the huge offensive explosion. If anything changes, I expect Nick to edit to make me look better. Also, happy birthday to Christine Coleman of Aaron Miles’ Fastball, who has exquisite taste in days to be born.)
