Nice day for a ballgame, Cards 1-0 (update)

If you're not here -- and judging from the crowd, you're not -- you're missing a delight for day for a game. It was 75 degrees at first pitch, with a nice little breeze.

Cards took a 1-0 lead in the first. David Eckstein doubled. Miguel Cairo sacrificed him over. Albert Pujols hit one of the hardest sac flies you'll ever see. Norris Hopper caught with his back to the wall.

Reds failed to score in first after Norris Hopper doubled and Jeff Keepinger walked. Junior Griffey gounded into a 4-6-3 and Brandon Phillips struck.

With Josh Hamilton and Alex Gonzalez hurt, Hopper and Keppinger are going to get more playing time. These will be meaningful at-bats for both because they're facing teams that are im it and teams that have seen them before -- St. Louis, Milwaukee and the Cubs. Keppinger's hititng .231 in September so far after hitting .393 in August.
