Game 147 Recap: Ciriaco Keys Comeback

Brad Lincoln and Kyle Lohse started in what became a see saw game. In the end, it wasn’t Albert Pujols who struck the deciding blow. Instead it was someone far less obvious – Pedro Ciriaco. The Cardinals jumped on Lincoln for a run in the first.

Jimmy Paredes hit into a force out, scoring Lee. Humberto Quintero doubled with two gone...
