Cards And Last Weekend Friday And Saturday Home Losses

September 29, 2019

I will channel Ronald Colman/”Sydney Carton” from the classic Charles Dickens’ novel, “A Tail of Two Cities” and use two “fars” to convey that this is far, far less dramatic than a similar St. Louis Cardinals’ bid to win a baseball entity 55 years ago.

Today, on baseball’s last day of the regular season, there are two meaningful games going in, the St. Louis Cardinals hosting the Cubs and the Brewers visiting Colorado.

The Cardinals, who also lost Friday and Saturday games in unexpected results, in a dramatic race for the National League Pennant and World Series entry those 55 years ago, lead “Milw” by a game.

If the Brewers gain today, the teams meet tomorrow in St. Louis, with the winner into the “quarters” vs Atlanta and the loser to Washington for a 10 to 8 game, Tuesday.

If the Cards win or if Milwaukee loses or both, the Cards will be the N.L. “3” seed and face Atlanta in playoffs action for the fifth time.

 

Al Jackson, who/(whom?) sadly, passed on in August of this year, out dueled the great Cards’ pitcher, Bob Gibson in the Friday night opening game of the ’64 series finale, winning (1-0).
