Ankiel Goes Deep Twice Cards Top Dodgers 6-1

In what is turning into one of the few feel good stories in an era in sports when we desperately need more ST. Louis Cardinals right fielder Rick Ankiel had himself a very successful Saturday. Ankiel who was a pitcher the last time he played in the majors hit two home runs on Saturday his third long ball since being called up to the Majors on Thursday, as the Redbirds beat the LA Dodgers 6-1. Ankiel went 3-4 with 3 RBI six since joining the team after coming up from Triple A Memphis. For Ankiel and the Cardinals this is the culmination of a long process that saw a once promising starting pitcher, who all of a sudden just lost his ability to throw the ball over the plate. However instead of giving up playing, he simply gave up pitching in Spring Training 2005, and proceeded to rebuild his career as an outfielder. The ST. Louis crowd gave Ankiel a standing ovation.
