The St. Louis Cardinals really didn’t want to be swept by former manager Tony LaRussa and the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday afternoon as their three-game series wrapped up. Apparently, Tommy Edman was especially against that idea. The second baseman provided two of the four runs in the 4-0 win, hitting solo homers in both the third and eighth innings to give them a 2-0 lead.
In the ninth, they tacked on two additional insurance runs when Edmundo Sosa drove in two with a single. As a pitching staff, the Cards gave up just six hits all game long, with only one coming after starter John Gant departed. The result still leaves both teams on top of their respective divisions, with the Cardinals up by half a game on the Cubs in the NL Central and the White Sox now 1.5 games up on Cleveland in the AL Central.
