SS Danny Espinosa (2 HR, 7 RBI) went deep from both sides of the plate to lead the Nats to a 13-4 win. The victory was Washington's fifth straight and ups its NL East lead to six games.

Erasmo Ramirez walks in the tying run for the Tigers. 7-7. Wow. Still only one out in the top of the ninth.

Brandon Moss's solo home run in the fourth inning Thursday night very nearly cleared the right-field stands and left Busch Stadium. According to the Cardinals, the blast went 477 feet and was the longest in the 10-year-old stadium's history, surpassing a Matt Holliday home run by seven feet. Statcast was a bit more conservative, calling it 454 feet, but it was impressive nonetheless, a soaring drive that left Moss' bat traveling 112 mph.

With the Cardinals trailing 3-1 in the sixth inning and in danger of dropping their seventh straight home game, manager Mike Matheny erupted at home plate umpire Mike Everitt and got himself ejected for the first time this season. The odd part was that Everitt had nothing to do with the previous call, which was overturned after review by a replay crew in New York.If the Cardinals lose, they will be eight games under .500 at home and 10 games over .500 on the road.

A World Series matchup which, while off in the distance, is possible: Manager of '04 Red Sox (Tito) vs. GM (Theo). Battle for legacy.

Carlos Carrasco with six straight strikeouts, 14 in all. Ridiculous splitter/changeup. One out in the eighth.
