Cards Win ! Cards Win ! Cards Win !

Opening day 2010 has been one to forget today down by the Ohio River at the Great American Ballpark – depending which river team you were rooting for.  The team that plays by the Mississippi River beat up on the team from Southern Ohio in front of their hometown fans.
The final score was 11-6 and the day was fueled by a pair of homeruns from slugger Albert Pujols, who was 4 for 5 on the day and also drove in 3 runs.  The win goes to Chris Carpenter, who went 6 innings and striking out 3.  Aaron Harang suffered his first loss of the season for the Cincinnati Reds, going 5 innings and striking out 2.
The Cardinals hit a total of 4 homeruns today, while the Reds added a pair of dingers themself.  The game was tied heading into the 9th inning when the Cardinals erupted for 5 runs off of Nick Masset.
