Follow-Up: Rick Ankiel's OF Debut
It was looking pretty bleak for Rick Ankiel, in his 1st game back with the Cards as an outfielder. Through the 6th inning, he was 0-for-3 with 2 strikeouts. I just thought hey, it's his first game, it'll probably take a little while for him to get adjusted to major league pitching. But in the 7th, he went deep for a 3-run homer, off of reliever Doug Brocail. I'm very happy for Ankiel, and hope that he can keep his spot on the St. Louis roster.
