Congradulations St. Louis Cardinals

The first inning hasn't even come on us yet, and already the story of tonight is clear: the Detroit Tigers have lost Game 5. I didn't say "the Cardinals won". The top of the second has now arrived, but that doesn't matter. Justin Verlander has already thrown 31 pitches, including two that went wild (he only threw 5 all season). He ended up just throwing fastball after fastball trying to get one of them to be a strike (three walks issued by Verlander that inning, while Weaver just got his third strike on Ordonez).

Grilli was already warming up to get Verlander out of there, and if the Tigers have to rely on their bullpen, this game is already won. Congradulations Cardinals. I won't be here to congradulate you when it happens.

Shows what I know: Inge's throwing error in the bottom of the second let Molina score and gave the Cardinals their first run.

Then in the top of the third Inge gets a double, and then makes it little better than a strikeout as his bad baserunning gets him out halfway to third base when Granderson behind him could have sent him to home.
