Woody Williams was attempting to rid himself of a status that speaks well for the Cardinals pitching staff. He came into last night’s game with the Reds with a record of 6-6—that made him the only member of the rotation not over .500. He pitched well enough, going into the seventh inning with just two runs off four hits, but gave up six walks. Williams didn’t get the win, but the Redbirds did, topping the Reds 4-2. Ray King got the win in an inning of relief and Jason Isringhausen pitched a perfect ninth inning to earn his 20th save of the year. Reggie Sanders broke a 2-2 tie with an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Cardinals have won six in a row and have a six game lead over the Cubs in the National League Central.
