Enhanced Box Score: Cardinals 4, Cubs 5 – September 21, 2012

Enhanced Box Scores

Ah, the Cards can’t feel too good about that one.

Chris Carpenter’s return to pitching was probably successful, though he wasn’t exactly facing the 1927 Yankees. It was good enough to beat the Cubs, I suppose, is what I mean.

But it didn’t, because the Cubs came roaring back behind a two-run, two-out, two-strike homer by Darwin Barney in the bottom of the 9th. That tied things up, and David DeJesus knocked a walk-off single in the 11th.


As silly and backwards as it is, maybe Barney’s offensive heroics will help put him over the top …
