It was hard not to take note of the fact that St. Louis in two consecutive innings was able to bunt the runner up with no one out and create and then succeed in scoring by a sacrifice fly ball. Admittedly one was helped by an error but in both cases they moved the runner and scored from there without a hit.

We cannot do that because we can't bunt and we can't hit a sacrifice fly if we do get a guy on 3rd with less then 2 outs. You don't need home run hitters for that, you just need some fundamental baseball ability. I know we're young but that is terribly frustrating. They win the game cause they bunt better. That's a first place team.

Maybe it's time to have Duke pick up a bat in bunt situations in later innings? Seriously.

I honestly believe LaRussa would do that anywhere in the line-up except Pujols spot in a late-inning situation.
