Jermaine Curtis played second for Memphis today, and I think he could get a lot of playing time there this season. Scott...

What fans couldn't have known at that time was how impressive of a performance they were about to put up. Arguably that performance peaked when Shelby Miller and Adam Wainwright posted back to back shutouts - with one hit and two hits...
