So much for a pitchers' duel: the Cardinals scored 10 runs in the seventh en route to a 13-1 win. The line of the night belongs to Greg Swindell-what was I saying about the stiffs in the D-Backs bullpen-zero innings pitched, 6 batters faced, 6 hits, 5 runs (all earned), 2 doubles, and no home runs, walks, or strikeouts. He did, however, throw 12 of 18 pitches for strikes. 18 pitches to six batters? It sounds like batting practice.
All tolled in the seventh, the Cardinals had 10 runs on 10 hits, including 2 doubles and four straight infield singles (!).
Perhaps the only thing worse for the Diamondbacks than being dominated by Jamey Wright is the loss of Luis Gonzalez on a collision with Tony Womack on a shallow fly ball. Gonzalez separated his shoulder and it is not readily apparent how long he will be out.
