    Patience is paying off. 4vwalks. Hopefully Ponce is staying Loose.

    Dean was trying to make it 6-0. I would have settled for 4-0

    Way to be, Yadi!! 2 run double and it’s 3-0 Cards
    THAT is why I want Paul after Yadi in the order!

    Need a shutdown inning. A k is a good way to start.

    I think a big key to this start for Ponce is to throw strikes and trust his defense.

    At least we got a walk and run scored out of our outfield to go along with the 2 strike outs.

    Good start for Ponce.. let’s continue to be patient, wait for pitches we can put in play and see what happens. Go Cardinals!

    That was a ball to 1-8 hitters

    I think Tommy will have a good series… but sometimes you have to tip your hat to the defense.

    Did Ponce throw a single off speed pitch?

    Hammer. I think Ponce is just trusting what Yadi is putting down

    Indians announcer was saying earlier that he picked the Cardinals to win the Central until he saw our rotation. You know that was a knock on Ponce and Gant. I’m sure there are other so called experts that feel the same way. As long as their in the rotation… they need to prove them wrong.

    Ponce’s pitch count is getting up there. Likely to be 40 even if he gets this last out in the 2nd.

    With an off day Friday, I’d let Ponce go as long as he’s getting outs. Our BULLPEN needs the rest. Looking good thru 3 so far.

    The Marlins announcers are saying that the miss rate on his curve is only 12%, and the miss rate on his fastball is 45%

    Rogers has seemed to settle down and found a groove. Good thing we got those runs in the first. Keep getting those outs.

    That double by Anderson was brought to you exclusively by the Bader injury. No way that gets down if he’s in CF.

    You are correct, sir!

    I see we now have 3 guys hitting over .250. Goldy, NA and Yadi. The huddled masses need to man up. Any time now would be fine. PDL looks impressive on the mound.

    BB – SS and OF. Achilles heels. 0 for 8 tonight so far with 5 Ks.

    Ponce playing with fire in the 5th. This is the danger time for him. He needs to keep the Cards ahead by at least 3.

    Ponce limits the Marlins to that one run, and the Cards keep a 3 run lead.

    Man, it is easy to see why Arenado is a step above the typical Cardinal hitter. He more consistently swings at good pitches. It seems we have had 10 years of guys like Grichuk, Bader, and recently Carpenter and even DeJong who take a lot of good pitches, then flail at pitches out of the zone.

    The other thing, Arenado keeps his head down and eyes right on the ball. Watching Carp pinch hit tonight, his head was looking away and not following the ball to the bat.

    Basic stuff.
