    Daniel Ponce de Leon is the new Cardinals starter (on sort rest).

    Shildt said that Ponce had been penciled in to start here before, but it would have been Gomber instead had he not been needed tonight. And then Ponce would have been used in relief. But as soon as Gomber went in tonight, Ponce knew this would be his start to make.

    What the heck kind of lineup can you even put out there for game 2? Dejong clearly needs a game off, but then you have Edman moving to SS, and Carp at 3B, who probably needs a game off too with his cold streak. Carlson will get a start, and probably O’Neill too, who had a nice game 1. Maybe O’Neill-Carlson-Ravelo/Williams? I wish we had Knizner activated. I hate having Wieters starting.

    Pitchers after Ponce who would seem to be available:

    Crismatt
    Fernandez*
    Miller*
    Webb*
    Woodford

    *-Pitched yesterday.

    Elledge pitched two days in a row so he’s presumed out. Webb pitched 1-2/3 yesterday. So your order is probably Ponce, then Woodford, and Miller if it’s a tight game. Crismatt and Fernandez if it’s a big lead either way.

    We may have five errors this game.

    We desperately need the Jekyll version of Ponce tonight. And along with that make him only have to get three outs in an inning.

    The Cards need to get at least five innings out of Ponce.

    Murderers row up for the Cards: Carp, Dylan and Weiters.

    “Cool” Chad Kuhl mowing down the St. Louis lineup so far.

    Chad Kuhl has a perfect game going so far. He’s not even at 30 pitches. Ponce has been decent, getting through 3 on 43 pitches.

    Like the bunt by Wong – just did not quite get there. Carpenter needs to do that once in awhile.

    I like your optimism Pugs. I think 2022 will be the year when we become a force again but I hope you are right and it happens a year early.

    PDL has great stuff. If he can develop good command, he could come on and pitch for a stretch like Flaherty did the second half of last year. Just needs to keep his pitch count down.

    Ponce through four and looking good! Keep it up Daniel, your team needs you to eat innings!

    Ponce with 7 Ks through the 4th. He’s kept the pitch count acceptable with 65. Would be good to get 6 innings from him. It would also be good to see the offense hit this bum Kuhl for a few runs.

    It would be nice to have a legitimate threat to bat behind Goldy.

    Two on, no one out. Gotta do something here to support Ponce.

    The first two are on. Good start to the 4th.

    How can Miller swing at that? Man, we would have had bases full no out!

    Brad Miller had 1 pitch in the zone that at bat, and 7 out of the zone. He managed to find a way to strike out.

    Strike out hurts … Miller unable to advance the runners.
