NLDS Game 5 2013-10-09 1

Late post today because out too late last night.

The Cardinals won the first round of the playoffs, the National League Division Series, in the fifth and decisive game. They now advance to meet the Los Angeles Dodgers for the National League championship. 

Above, Card's slugger Matt Adams acknowledges the cheers of the crowd after his 8th inning home run. Minutes later (first below), whoever was pitching for Pittsburgh at the time skulks off the mound after being pulled by the manager. Farther down, our ace pitcher, Adam Wainwright, hurls the final pitch of the game. Last, bits of the jubilant celebration.

We have to congratulate the Pirates for their terrific year. After 23 consecutive losing seasons, they put together an excellent team, finishing the regular season just behind St. Louis. 

The league championship series starts tomorrow in our city. The family and I will be there.
