I want Munoz playing EVERY DAY….. along with Bader and Schrock.June 1, 2018 at 7:55 pm #54776
Could end up a pitchers duel tonight??
I think the Cards can get to Taillon eventually though.
Like the hustle by Bader! Hope to see more of that this year from all the Cards!June 1, 2018 at 8:00 pm #54778
As I say that…costly error there allows the Pirates to strike first. Still going in the inning. Nope, nice play by the Wonger to end the inning.
The zone looked a little right that inning.June 1, 2018 at 8:00 pm #54780
Bases totally occupied with marauding Pirates on the Munoz error…only 1 out. Bell sac fly to left….and what kind of throw was that from Ozuna!!! Honestly….. either Ma or Pa Kettle executes a stronger throw home than that Ozuna lollipop. Mikolas only yields the 1 tally.June 1, 2018 at 8:03 pm #54781
As much as Munoz error was unfortunate. The line drive accident off of Mikolas is what really cost us the run.June 1, 2018 at 8:04 pm #54782
Would be nice to see Miles help himself with the bat here.June 1, 2018 at 8:05 pm #54783
And surprise surprise! Cy Taillon sailing right along here….slicing thru that Cards batting order like they were Pee Wee’ers. 1-0 Bucs as we move along to the 4th.June 1, 2018 at 8:13 pm #54785
Before it’s all said and done, I wonder how Bader will be compared to Jimmy E. defensively? Even offensively Bader may end up giving him a run for his money.June 1, 2018 at 8:18 pm #54787
Like they say, “speed never goes into a slump”……and Bader has loads of it. Love to see him garner ROY honors. Who are this year’s NL contenders anyway?June 1, 2018 at 8:22 pm #54788
Frazier slaps a triple down the line and the Pirates are in business again.June 1, 2018 at 8:23 pm #54789
Make that back to back triples as the Pirates sneak an extra base off the Cardinal defense.June 1, 2018 at 8:24 pm #54790
Sure didn’t appear that Fowler was doing his best Charlie Hustle impersonation on that one out Frazier triple. Fowler and Ozuna both need to go…..both are offensive and defensive liabilities…
2-0 Pirates on the Cervelli double .
… going to 3rd on the Ozuna errorJune 1, 2018 at 8:27 pm #54793
Great play by Carp at 3rd to save another Pirate tally. Have to get Bell here to keep it a 2 run ballgame…Bell flys out to left to end the inning.June 1, 2018 at 8:34 pm #54794Euro DandyParticipantFree
How long has it been since Ozuna barreled one up and driven the ball? Just what this team needs for a cleanup stick.June 1, 2018 at 8:44 pm #54796
I think last September in a Marlins uni, Euro.June 1, 2018 at 8:46 pm #54797
Whew! Look what Fowler found in his glove. That was both a close and a lucky play there.June 1, 2018 at 8:47 pm #54798
Usually an offense benefits from seeing a pitcher twice in a short time. Taillon is doing quite a bit better tonight than last week. Hope the Cards can figure him out the third time through the order.June 1, 2018 at 8:53 pm #54800
I think the announcers are right. I think Gomber is gonna be in soon
Another nice play by Carp
Yet again. It is hard to watch him throw the ball to bases but he is making all the plays you have to at 3b. It might Ben ugly but so whatJune 1, 2018 at 8:53 pm #54801
Carpenter is single handily keeping us in this game with his glove…..how about using your stick now too, Carp. Beautiful game by our 3rd baseman thus far!June 1, 2018 at 8:54 pm #54802Euro DandyParticipantFree
Wong’s last AB was painful — a 5-pitch strikeout in which no pitches crossed the strike zone. He keeps digging his hole deeper and deeper. As BHC reminded me recently, he has options. At some point you have to send him down for help, at least to change things up for him…and more importantly, change things up for the team.June 1, 2018 at 8:56 pm #54803
Geesh….wish I still had Mikolas’ hairline! I lost that puppy about 20 years ago.June 1, 2018 at 8:59 pm #54804
Cy Ty unfortunately continues to mow us down with little difficulty. Some how some way we need to solve this guy or they goes Mikolas’ perfect record and more importantly another game behind both Milwaukee and Chicago.June 1, 2018 at 9:05 pm #54805
I didn’t realize Wong had options. Thats Gotta be on the table at this point. Because right now his o my value is as a late game pinch runner and defensive sub.
I like Wong. Memphis might actually help him to get regular at bats with less stress. He ll still get his paycheck and if he gets roiling I think he’s the type that could carry it back up to the major league team when he figures it out. Unlike Grichuk who I think is just an inherently streaky player. I think Wong just needs to get right as last year he showed he can put up sustained success.
If he truly wants to help the team I think he would understand and be all for it.
His defense is GG but we really need a bat that is at least passable. He is hitting worse than Kozma did it feels.
Just take a couple weeks and get right Wong in AAA. He does that he could set back into the starting lineup if he can get his swing worked out.June 1, 2018 at 9:06 pm #54806
Tuivalala looking better and better.
And yet again Cervelli complains and moans to the umpire about something new.June 1, 2018 at 9:18 pm #54807
I thought we might get a little hangover from last night. But man. Taillon has been excellent and our boys aren’t making it too hard.
Still have 6 outs and I’m. Kt sure Taillon won’t get a chance at all 6 of them.
Still no Gomber.
I like what tuivalala did but do we really need to keep pushing every single food outing guy for more than an inning? Can’t a guy just have a good day and let him sit down gain some confidence?
