We had planned on taking a blogging break on Sundays here at Diamond Diaries. But I woke up thinking about the end to last night’s game and immediately went online in search of video and chatter about it. So a quick Sunday blog wouldn’t hurt, right?
Yesterday was the Civil Rights Game and the boys were in vintage (~1947 style) jerseys. So, watching the recap is a must just to catch a glimpse of those uniforms. Adam Wainwright in high socks is something that cannot be missed!

But the moment of the game that I woke up thinking about is this one:
Should third base coach Jose Oquendo have sent Skip Schumaker home on Joe Mather’s 9th inning, 2-out smash hit to the left field wall? If Skip had been safe, the answer would have been a resounding “Heck, yeah!” But Skip was tagged out, the game was over and the Cardinals lost.
Watching the Reds’ left fielder fumble around for that baseball, I was certain Skip would be hustling across homeplate before the camera followed that long throw back into the infield. So close, but yet….
The Cardinals lost, but they RALLIED!! Heartbreaking, but yet edge-of-your-seat EXCITING all at the same time. Not the ending we’d hoped for, but a 9th inning effort that was pure baseball energy!
Have a wonderful Sunday, Cards Fans!! :)
Let’s win this one today! GO CARDS!
