On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
Tony Cruz delivered the game-winning single in the bottom of the 13th to give the Cardinals a 3-2 win over the Brewers at Busch Stadium. Jon Jay and Matt Adams both added an RBI as the Cards banged out 12 hits in the victory. Shelby Miller struck out four and allowed one earned run in six frames for the no-decision. Sam Freeman logged the win in relief. St. Louis remains two-and-a-half games up on the Pirates in the NL Central.
