St. Louis, MO – The St. Louis Cardinals now lead the World Series two games to one after beating the Detroit Tigers last (Tue.) night 5-0.
The Cardinals sent their ace, Chris Carpenter to the mound and he delivered, giving up just three hits over eight innings. He also struck out six and didn't walk anyone.
The Redbirds got on the board in the fourth when center fielder Jim Edmonds hit a bases-loaded double that scored two. Two more runs came in for the Cards in the seventh after a throwing error by Tigers relief pitcher Joel Zumaya; the fifth and final run scored in the eight on a wild pitch.
Game four is tonight night at Busch Stadium; Jeff Suppan will start for the Cards against Jeremy Bonderman of the Tigers.
There's also rain in the forecast, but the Cardinals are used to that: Two of their games against the Mets during the Championship Series were rained out.
