Cardinals Suffer Historic Collapse

By bullpenbrian at 07.09.2010 Leave a comment.

Cubs are a wash meaning it’s time to take pleasure in the Cardinals’ struggles!

St. Louis was swept 3-0 at Colorado this week…and in historical fashion, too.

Tuesday night the Cards suffered the worst ninth-inning collapse in modern baseball history–the Rockies scoring nine-times to erase a six-run deficit en route to an amazing 12-9 victory.

Wednesday night wasn’t any easier. The Cards leading 5-0 before letting the Rocks mount another late-inning rally.

This time Dexter Fowler’s three-run shot in the eight tied the game 7-all before Chris Iannetta’s dramatic home run in the ninth gave the Rockies an 8-7 win.

No luck for the birds on Thursday, either. Ubaldo Jimenez–arguably the best pitcher in the NL–shut St. Louis down over eight innings allowing a single run.

Meanwhile, the Rockies score four-runs off ace-hurler Chris Carpenter, win 4-2, sweep the series, and send the Redbirds to Houston wondering just how good they really are at (45-40).

At the very least, still better than our Cubs!
