    Batting around is fun. Carp up to face the lefty. Sac fly. 12-1.

    Can Dylan keep it rolling??

    Way to hustle, Dylan. Too long a throw for the 3B and we’re still in business!

    Nothing much better than batting around the order.

    MLBs next rule to speed up the game. 10 run rule after 5. Maybe make it after 6.

    The whole starting lineup has at least one hit. Even Carp.14 men at bat this inning so far.

    I was surprised they gave an error on carps hit. It should be an error but they routinely in this day and age give guys hits on hard hit balls that aren’t played well even if they get a glove on it.

    Knizner walks. Williams up again and the Carda have batted around on this reliever. Would be a nice time to see some more of that famous Justin Williams exit velocity.

    Or maybe the little floater out to CF. 2 more in, 14-1 Cardinals.

    Williams two hits off a lefty in this inning! Dean gets a second pinch hit opportunity.

    They didn’t do it but I wonder if there ever has been an occasion where a guy pinch hit for someone and came back up in same inning and got pinch hit for.

    Love to see your PHer (Dean) get two AB in the inning.

    Carp -see ball, hit ball. Simple.

    I think this ump is ready for this inning to end. That 3-1 pitch was quite a bit inside. Dean ends up K’ing on a pitch in the dirt. Not a great at bat there but 9 runs will do.

    Looked like Dean just wanted to get on with things.

    Do we have someone that can pitch the last 4 innings? Save the bullpen. Maybe a position player?

    Great to see guys go up there and just rip. Not make it more complicated than it is. Don’t worry about swing plane, launch angle, barrel rate, exit velocity, etc.
    Just pick out a hittable pitch and hammer it. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

    Well you can go up there and just rip when the pitching is horrible. Glad to see the hits but I’ll wait and see how we do going forward against better pitching. Some of the stuff tonight was just batting practice stuff.

    Batting practice or not, hope it’s a confidence builder.

    It hit off Castros’s chest, after deflecting off his glove. Whatever it was, it hurt.

    Edman almost messed up. It may be a laugher but got to concentrate.

    3 hits for Carlson. I hope he can keep it going.

    This is the third or fourth time you’ve made a comment like this. I think what you are missing is that the advanced metrics are not for the batter while he/she is having an AB. It’s not like they are wearing special contacts, or implants like in the old ESPN Pujols ‘Machine’ commercials. The stats are to understand why hitters are successful or not, and how to get better. Ten years ago, BABIP was the rage, with regression to the mean being the mantra of some. Then the correlative analysis came out, that showed that BABIP was sustainable based on launch angle and exit velocity. It’s not for the batter during an AB. It’s to let them know how far away they are when they are slumping or just missing. Carp, for instance, has been just missing. It’s why he’s being getting so many batting opportunities even without results, until today. Yes you could say he was lucky Castro made an error at SS today, but when you hit it at 105mph you make your own luck.

    Cardinals win. Outfielders are 7-15 with 2 strikeouts. Now 6-5 on the year.
