Good Morning! for April 19

First, what you may have missed yesterday.

The Cardinals continued to make the Reds look like a joke, pushing them 5 back with another lop-sided victory… The Dodgers, who entered the series 9-1 after beating up on the Padres (7 games) and Pirates, have now dropped 2 straight to the Brewers… Brad Lincoln got called up to replace an injured Jeff Karstens and picked up the win for the Pirates…
