You And Me And Correia Makes Three, Tonight

Kevin Correia produced the third consecutive gem from the starting staff, going 7.2 innings, allowing just five hits while striking out four. Not surprisingly it equated to the third win in a row for the G-men, this time 5-1 over St. Louis at home, a feat that just a week ago figured to be as rare for the club as a hat trick in women's soccer. Or, for you lane lizards, perhaps a turkey bowled by Stephen Hawking.

It got a little dicey late, but the beach boy Sloop Johnd his way out of the Cards' ninth-inning rally, and save number two came to B.

The bad: Hennessey was back to his pre-Wednesday self, allowing three base runners and a run while only recording one out in the ninth.

The good: SF rallied for a season-high five runs on 10 hits, pearl necklacing their previous season-best. (And hey, Onion, buy another vowel for Danny O.)

Zito on the mound tonight against Lohse for the Cards. Our only chance would figure to be if Lohse pitches worse than he barters for contracts.
