SO What Else is New?
So Taguchi (田口 壮), born July 2, 1969 in Nishinomiya, Hyogo, Japan, is a Major League Baseball outfielder for the St. Louis Cardinals.
On October 13, 2006, Taguchi hit a go-ahead home run off Billy Wagner in the top of the 9th inning of Game 2 of the NLCS. The home run gave the Cardinals a 7-6 lead.
Today, in the World Series final, Molina and Taguchi singled with one out in the bottom half and Weaver bunted back to Verlander. He had an easy force at third, but sidearmed the ball and it bounced past Inge for an error that allowed Molina to score the tying run and left runners on second and third. Eckstein followed with a grounder to shortstop that drove in Taguchi for a 3-2 lead. (Can you tell that I copied this from the news??)
Kudos to the Cardinals on their first win since 1982!
