Sunday Sports Roundup

Saturday at a mostly-deserted Great American Ballpark, Tommy Pham and Greg Garcia put on a show for the few fans who were in attendance. Garcia belted two home runs, and added a double and scored three runs in an outstanding performance. Not to be outdone by his teammate, Tommy Pham also went 3 for four with two doubles and two stolen bases. This one was just about all Cards from the get-go as the Redbirds defeat the Reds again 6-1. The Cards go for the sweep this afternoon in Cincinatti. They play the Cubbies in Chicago tomorrow night, weather permitting, of course.
