Izzy’s back, Just in Time for the Cards

Jason Isringhausen got his first save since getting off the DL. His return is a welcome one for the Cardinals, I’m sure, with the loss of Scott Rolen for 4-6 weeks.

Though as Baseball Musings points out, it hasn’t always been Rolen, Pujols or Walker carrying the Cardinals as of late. Sometimes the “light-hitting” guys have been contributing as well.

Today was no exception with Mark Grudzielanek with a homer and a rbi single and Abraham Nunez (Rolen’s replacement) with another homer.

Some Izzy Trivia: When Jason Isringhausen and Bill Van Landingham faced each other in the mid-90’s, it was the matchup with the longest last names by the starting pitchers in the history of MLB.
