Right you are, Euro, as Wacha gives way to Mayers….who quickly induces the inning ending grounder. Still 5-2 Birds as we prepare to enter inning #7. Michael can and should win this one, but he cannot lose it…and the pen better not surrender this one!
Oh oh….the wifey is begging for me to watch ‘Vikings with her. I’m torn….geesh….this one is a toughie! She’ll be grouchy all night if I blow her off….but this is the Cardinals! I think I’ll flip a coin….wish I had one of those 2 headed coins handy…and Carpenter ramrods a drive deep to left!…Winker drifts back, but can only give that ball a wary wink as it’s way up into the seats and the Cards now seize a 6-2 advantage!
Mayers should’ve gotten out of the inning unscathed. Ump blew what should’ve been a called strike three on Schebler, who then drives in the run. I’ll be happy to see the day when umps are no longer calling balls and strikes.
