What a crazy, fun, scary, ultimately thrilling game.

There will be so much to unpack from this one in detail later, but the high points are this:



  • It’s good to keep scoring as many runs as you possibly can, because you just don’t know.
  • Jake Arrieta was entitled to a start like that after a year of basically being perfect. I’m not even sure he was all that bad today.
  • Some ugly defensive moments in this one.
  • Some ugly umpiring behind the plate in this one.
  • Thank you, Kris Bryant.
  • Thank you, Ben Zobrist.
  • Thank you, Justin Grimm, Pedro Strop, and Hector Rondon.
  • THAT’S ANOTHER SERIES WIN IN ST. LOUIS!
