Young Guns - The untold reason why the Cards are up 3-1
I haven't heard the talking heads mention this yet, but it appears to me one of the most significant reasons for the cards being up 3-1 is their young arms in the bullpen. Ironically, it was supposed to be the Detroit young pen flamethrowers that were to dominate this series, but instead the dominance is coming from the Cards young hurlers. For example, if you look at the Cards Adam Wainwright, Tyler Johnson, Randy Flores, and Josh Kinney, you will find the following....
28 IP, 1 ER...that is, a 0.32 ERA
3 Wins, 0 Losses, 3 Saves
opposing batters are hitting .179
36 K's, 8 BB's
These 4 guys have been STUDS!
"Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning." --- Hesiod
