|Manny Sanguillen dons the Cap O' Five Hits.|
Nelson Briles of the Cardinals threw away his crutches, ran out to the Busch Stadium hill and blanked the Phoolish Phillies on just one hit, a 5th inning line drive single by Deron Johnson. Beer truck Johnson had the audacity to immediately steal second base on backstop Tim McCarver, who was so abashed that he later went down with a shame-related injury. No matter! The Cardinals roll on. After winning their first 9, they lost 4 of 7 but have now reeled off another 8 straight wins. Who can stop them? Surely not the ridiculous Phils, who have already been blanked 5 times and who are once again without Allen or Callison who both reappeared for part of one game before going back to the Island Of Broken Players.
|Johnny Miller (?) gets kudos for his hit, L.A. style.|
|NOT Ed Spiezio|
