It took a long time to decide that the Cardinals-Nationals game would be called, but that was the case at 9pm last night.  Rained out.  A day-night double header is scheduled today with the first game starting at 12:10.  Todd Wellemeyer still penciled to start. Mike Parisi will make his 2 nd career start in the night cap scheduled for 6:10 pm.

Rick Ankiel (Bill Greenblatt, UPI) Albert Pujols’ left calf strain is nothing major, but he’ll be held out of the lineup the next couple of days.  Rick Ankiel, remember that diving catch he made a couple of days ago?  He really scratched up his hand and knee on the play.  Well, his knee got infected Wednesday morning so he got an injection and will likely be out a couple of days.
