First, we learned that Matt Holliday was going to ride the pine. A mental day off.
But it didn’t matter early or late, since STL’s very own Abe Lincoln… err… Matt Carpenter was on a tear.
The Padres weren’t about to be bullied, though. And they scored runs of their own. Their fans were pumped up.
We waited for our king to close this one out.
He didn’t do so hot. So it was Seth Maness time.
