Busch Stadium: 7/6/07
Cardinals vs Giants

Mike Maroth had pitched the least impressive 5 innings of 1 run ball I’d ever seen (5 H, 4 BB, 2 SO, 94 pitches) before So Taguchi dropped the 3rd out in the 5th and allowed 3 runs to score. Barry Bonds went 0 for 1 with 3 walks – failing to inch any closer to Hank Aaron’s record. The Cards mounted a 9th inning rally by scoring 2 runs on a Chris Duncan 2-out pinch-hit before So Taguchi flied out to left to end the game as the Giants held on to win 4-3.
