It was a long, long day of baseball for the Cardinals, with an unpleasant finish. After being snowed out Saturday, the Cards and Rockies played a split doubleheader Sunday. The Cards rolled in the first game, winning 9-3. But they had to settle for the split, losing the wild nightcap, 14-13. The Cardinals led 9-5, before Colorado scored 9 runs in the 6th. St. Louis scored 4 times in the 9th, and had the bases loaded, when Placido Polanco lined to right to end the game. Fernando Vina had five hits in the loss, raising his average to .411. Pat Hentgen won the opener, improving to 3-0. The Cards have now lost four of their last five. They are off today before hosting San Diego tomorrow.
