What is great is that the Cardinals don't have any bullpen, so much so that The Great Tony LaRussa had to bring his closer in with one on and none out in the eighth, then he walked the ballpark before serving one up to Michael "Who Cares About My Defense" Barrett.
The Cubs can put these wins in their pocket, and move on to beating the Reds. I do like Dusty's emphasis on winning the first game of the series. When the starting pitching is good enough, and the bullpen keeps it up, as well as the bench, it is hard to complain.
As for beating the Cardinals, it is never a cause for complaint.
