The good news is the Cards up 1-0 after 4, and they might end up winning by a comfortable margin. Wainwright is doing well.
However, the bad news is the mental gaffes are rearing their ugly heads again on the bases (Pham and Molina thrown out stealing in dubious situations) and on defense (DeJong not covering 2B properly to prevent a double play). Somehow, this has to be addressed. A trade or two isn’t going to make it stop.
Wainwright looking his sharpest this year. He’s given up two hits in 6 innings. He’s at about 70 pitches, so he might go 7 innings or more. Cards still clinging to a 1-0 lead. Pham leads off the 6th with a single, so maybe they can add to the lead.
Just came out of church to hear Mike Shannon’s last out call. Hallelulia! Where was DeJong when we were struggling with Peralta early in the season? Could have made a difference in those early close games. Oh well, just glad he’s on our side.
Well, DeJong was in Memphis trying to learn how to play shortstop and getting his very first at-bats at Triple-A. After all, he had hit just .216 in spring training, making it clear more seasoning would be best.
