Ludwick's fine, in a pinch

Ludwick's fine, in a pinch
By Rick Hummel

Though he started in left field Wednesday, reserve outfielder Ryan Ludwick, who will turn 29 next month, has been the Cardinals' most effective pinch-hitter with six hits in 11 at-bats and two homers.

But he is only 10 for 55 (.182) when not pinch-hitting, after going 0 for five Wednesday in the Cardinals' 7-3 victory over Kansas City. He was the only Cards starter to go hitless in the game.

Hitting coach Hal McRae surmised that "when (Ludwick) gets that one-bat, he doesn't know when he's going to get it. He doesn't have time to think about it. When Tony (La Russa) tells him, maybe he's got five minutes. Knowing when he's going to play, he's got all night and all the next day. That's eliminated."

Yea I realized him being a nice pinch hitter for us more than a starter
