Day 2 of Journey
Well yesterday morning we got all packed up and headed towards Pittsburgh. We made a smart stop about 25 miles outside Pittsburgh and had a delicious four course meal at a King's Family Restaurant, we ate like royalty at a great price.
As for the game, St. Louis came out hot scoring two runs in the first and never looked back. My boy Big Puma hit a three run homer in the fifth as the Cardinals chased Pittsburgh's Kevin Correia out after 4 2/3 innings after giving up seven earned runs. The Cardinals' Jaime Garcia had another quality start as he pitched 7 1/3 innings and only allowed eight hits and one earned run striking out five. The Cardinals easily won taking game two of the series, 9 to 1.
After the game we headed southeast toward Somerset which is about three or four miles from the 9/11 plane crash in Pennsylvania. We got into the Day's Inn in Somerset right around midnight and bedded down to recharge our batteries for our trip to Baltimore and our first doubleheader of the trip.
