SCardenfreude: Wake Up and Enjoy the Cardinals Blow It Three Times to Lose a 19(!)-Inning Marathon

Chicago Cubs

Look, I understand that things are ugly for the Cubs, and nothing I say here can change that fact for you, me, or them. But I’ll be damned if I’m not gonna still enjoy some Cardinals embarrassment and suffering. What kind of person would I be?!?

Last night, the Cardinals took the Diamondbacks deeeeeeeep in the Arizona night, with a near seven hour, 19-inning marathon game.

After wasting a Jack Flaherty near no-hitter, blowing a one-run lead in the 9th, the Cardinals blew another lead in the 13th inning. Then, with two on and two outs in the 19th, they intentionally loaded the bases to face Ildemaro Vargas, who brought it home.

Enjoy the Cardinals’ sadness (which saw the Brewers pull to within 2.5 games), because it is all you have:
