Question of the Day
Of course, La Russa probably didn’t envision Adam Wainwright, his starter yesterday, justifying the decision from the other end. The right-hander homered in the fourth off Matt Chico, helping St. Louis erase an early 3-1 deficit.
La Russa didn’t see much after that from the dugout after tangling twice with first base umpire Mark Wegner. La Russa was perturbed in the fourth when Wegner called Zimmerman safe on an infield hit and for good reason; replays showed Zimmerman was out.
In the fifth, Wegner ruled Ludwick swung on a 2-2 pitch, much to Ludwick’s astonishment. La Russa took only two steps out of the dugout before he was ejected, though he lingered for some time while ranting at Wegner.
The Cardinals soon tied it, but they did little to decipher Washington’s bullpen. Four relievers combined to pitch four scoreless innings, and the only threat was doused when southpaw Ray King induced a sharp double-play grounder back to the mound on his first and only pitch to escape the eighth.
“I’m not going to say I caught it — it went in my glove,” King said. “We turned that two, and it got us back to the dugout, and Zimmerman is Zimmerman. To go 6-0 on a homestand, no matter who you play, is a pretty good.”
