Busch Stadium: 4/27/06
Cardinals vs Nationals

The weather does not get any nicer in St. Louis than it was at the start of this game. The Cards jumped out in front in the 1st on an Edmonds 3-run homer. Sidney Ponson pitched his best game of the season thus far facing the minimum thru 4 innings, and the bullpen combo of Brad Thompson and Josh Hancock finished off the Nationals for a 6-2 Cardinals win. A trash fire (not pictured) broke out in the 8th inning in the right field stairwell tower.
