|They don't have much of it, but earned some back with the sweep!|
At Pittsburgh, Steve "Carlton Your Doorman" Carlton called up his 20th win of the season, against just 6 losses. Lefty has lost just once since the end of June, and not at all since the end of July. He mowed down the Pirates with ease. Now the Cardinals head home to await the second place Cubs. They'll play three, and the Cubbies are a nifty 9-3 against the Redbirds on the season. Only a Cubs sweep would really make a race of it in the east. We'll see.
|The worst 15-game winner in the western world.|
|Sure, and it's Pedro with some Lucky Charms for ye.|
