Doughnuts with Sprinkles Key To Cardinals Game 2 Victory?


One might get that impression reading the twitter feed of Allen Craig's pet tortoise (and online alter-ego), @tortycraig.

The Cardinals outfielder has tweeted all kinds of locker-room intrigue in recent weeks, including the following scene from yesterday morning when the Redbirds needed some fried dough to lift their spirits after a loss Saturday night to the Phillies.
Sadly, the doughnuts didn't have much positive effect on Carp, who pitched just three innings and left with the Cardinals down 4-0 after the third. The team would rally, though, with three runs in the 4th inning, another run in the 6th and Pujols getting the game-winning RBI in the 7th. "The doughnuts ha' arrive, mang!"
