Rain?

No.

FBI investigation?

Nope. Not even a query from the bureau into the team’s questionable front-office practices can stand in the way of the red-hot St. Louis Cardinals.

Today, the Cards snagged their fifth-straight win, a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins in a rain-soaked matinee at Busch Stadium.

And you know who was pitching for the Cardinals if it was raining. That’s right. Michael Wacha. It seems the righty always invites rain to the ballpark when he takes the mound.

The first rain delay lasted about 45 minutes and came in the bottom of the first inning after the Twins had taken a 1-0 lead. However, St. Louis got runs in the second and third frames to take a 3-1 advantage.
More rain came in the seventh and delayed the action for 47 minutes. The storm chased Wacha from the game. And when Wacha was done, so was the rain.

Coincidence?

I don’t think so!

Each of the Cardinals’ last three games have been delayed by rain. Sunday’s series finale with the Royals was postponed because of the wet stuff, and rescheduled for July 23 in St. Louis.

I’m digging that Cardinals umbrella!
