Walk off walk for callup Garcia

ST. LOUIS--Greg Garcia, called up from Memphis (AAA) earlier Thursday, became the walk-off St. Louis Cardinals hero in yet another one-run game in the Cards longest home stand of the season, a 9-8 win over the Colorado Rockies.

The Rockies, the last opponents in line for a four-game home stand, fell to the Cards in the series opener at Busch Stadium Thursday night, after the Cards put together a 3-run ninth, capped off by a bases-loaded walk by Garcia for the game-winner.

While the Cards (and their foes) have struggled offensively during the 11-game home stand, neither squad had difficulty plating runs, the lead changing a half-dozen times.

St. Louis continues its series with Colorado today.
