A Win in Wrigley

With the Cardinals in Wrigley and with "life is like a box of chocolates" Marquis taking the mound, I can’t say I was expecting a W yesterday. But we did get a W and what a W! 6 jacks and a lopsided victory? Seems like the Cards have been on the opposite side of those sort of victories too often this season, so this was some sweet revenge. Thanks to Hit Tracker, here’s the rundown of yesterday’s beatdown. (Not in the order they happened) But first, the Win Probability Graph courtesy of www.fangraphs.com

Preston Wilson (like this pickup so far)-433 feet, 112.6 mph

Put all the Cardinals homeruns together and in distance they equal around half a mile, 2535 feet to be exact.
