Cardinals make history of the “old men” with the demolition of the Rocky Mountains.

Two St. Louis Cardinals helped make some old man history in their 13-0 win over the Colorado Rockies.

Age is just a number this year St. Louis Cardinals. At least that was the case in Thursday’s loss to the Colorado Rockies.

The Cardinals’ 13-0 win over the Rockies came with some power and “old man” history. Two of their playing veterans did something no other 40-year-old has ever done in the same game.

Over-the-hill Cardinals scaled the Rockies with the tale of the “old men” of two legends

How can you beat a team that has Albert Pujols sitting around at 42 and able to come off the bench to beat a Grand Slam? The Rockies had no answer. He must have remembered to take his morning walk at the mall to stay fit.

The blast in the third inning showered the penalty on Colorado. The Cardinals were already leading 6-0 at this point. Pujols’ humdinger with the juiced bases (not even prune juice) put this one out of Colorado’s reach forever.

Bats clicked, and so did the bones of the player with the biggest hit of the game. He later even managed to add an RBI single for the game’s lucky 13th heat.

Perhaps even more impressive than Pujols’ performance is Adam Wainwright’s performance on the mound. Any 42-year-old Big Leaguer at the right time and place can find success and hit the yard. It takes a whole different breed of specialty athlete to throw 7 shutout innings.

Wainwright was also quite masterful. He only allowed 3 hits and knocked out 7 batters. In this one he didn’t feel his age. Despite the huge lead, he didn’t have to decline to get one of his stories. He knows how to record things and look at them later.

The only thing missing from this game was something crazy from catcher Yadier Molina. He turned 40 last month and definitely could have been a little timeless wonder. Unfortunately, he was 0 for 4 with a pair of strikeouts in this one. Cardinals make history of the “old men” with the demolition of the Rocky Mountains.
