Enhanced Box Score: Cardinals 9, Cubs 6 – July 27, 2012

Enhanced Box Scores

Travis Wood had a bad day. Again. He gave up five homers, and it’s not like the wind was howling straight out to center field.

But, this is just part of the process. He was never a top of the rotation type, and anyone who told you he was, simply allowed themselves to get too caught up in some good starts. He’s still relatively young, and he’ll have ups and downs. I’m not discouraged by three bad starts, just as I wasn’t ready to crown him after five good ones.

If it’s any consolation, a number of Cubs had great offensive days, and the bullpen was great.

But an oddity on the Cardinal side caught my eye.
