VIDEO: Paul Goldschmidt and Marcell Ozuna Go Back-to-Back to Take Early Lead on Dallas Keuchel

The St. Louis Cardinals saw the early-morning announcement that Dallas Keuchel would be appearing on three days' rest in an attempt to slam the door, and countered it by bashing the baseball. With two outs and none on, the heart of St. Louis' order went to work. Paul Goldschmidt parked one into deep left field off an 82 MPH Keuchel spinner, and Marcell Ozuna went just...a little bit further to follow it up.

2-0 in the first, and we've got a few more innings before we can ruminate seriously over whether Brian Snitker made a momentum-changing mistake here.
