We can't say it better than you said it, Chris...
So...Wacha on one day's rest Wednesday, right?— Chris Spurlock (@ChrisSpurlock) October 7, 2013
493 days ago, Mike Wacha was pitching his last ever game at Texas A&M University (Adam Baseball?) and now he's the Cardinals newest shiny bauble.
There's literally no way to quantify the amount of work that was being done around 4:15p when word of his potential no-hitter was spreading through text/social media/etc, but if I had to guess? Zero.
Wacha was quickly pulled after a HR and walk in the bottom of the 8th before CMart and Trevor came into to seal the win. Reasonably, I don't think you could have thought this could go any better.
ESPN and the Elias Sports Bureau report that this is the first time that 3 pitchers under the age of 23 have pitched in the same playoff game ever.
Oh, and Matt Holliday? #Clutch.
We'll have all day to nash teeth about GM5 all day Tuesday, but for tonight, it's a celebration of the past, the present... and damn it, if this team doesn't have a future.
