I believe Mahle is going in this one for the Reds. And we caught another break last night when the Giants downed the Cubs again. Final score was 8-5. Milwaukee is sneaking up on the Cubs and has now snuck past us as well. They are one game out and playing the coldest team in baseball now, Arizona.
And once again, the two middle of the order bats that we thought were going to carry us are doing just the opposite. Goldschmidt is barely hitting .240 and Arenado is in a 1-22 slump. Oh wait, I forgot, batting average doesnt mean anything anymore. They have a combined ARU of 4.87 and a ZTR of 15.53 so they are totally producing.
Din-din today is a Hungry Man’s rib dinner. Then a bowl of homemade ice cream afterwards. All of this at first pitch today. After din-din it will be time for a cigar as me and Whitey Herdog tune in from the couch.

The Cards need to get their bats going.June 5, 2021 at 12:23 pm #163221
The bats are cold but it’s more our pitching that concerns me. Injuries and a lack of depth is killing us.June 5, 2021 at 12:50 pm #163224gscottarParticipantPaid - AnnualJune 5, 2021 at 1:18 pm #163226ZTRParticipantFree
Well, its June and I still don’t have a read on the Cards or the Cubs or the Brewers.
I do know that the Cards entire starting rotation has to among the most fragile in MLB.
Lets face it. Since the first half of the 2015 season we’ve been treated to mostly average baseball from the Cards.June 5, 2021 at 1:34 pm #163227
Nice hit by Arenado to put the Cards ahead 1-0.June 5, 2021 at 1:35 pm #163228BrockLouParticipantFree
Edman gets a leadoff double, and doesn’t move an inch. What happened to hitting to the right side?June 5, 2021 at 1:56 pm #163229
So far so good, first two innings.
Din-din was very common tonight – steak, french fries and a salad. Another inning or two and I’ll go make myself a chocolate sundae.

Arenado came through and took those other guys off the hook.June 5, 2021 at 2:00 pm #163231
Nice play by Sosa.June 5, 2021 at 2:18 pm #163232TexasCardParticipantFree
This team is just so fundamentally inept. Matt Carpenter at 2B, SMH.June 5, 2021 at 2:25 pm #163234
But carpenters ops is so awesome he has to be in thereJune 5, 2021 at 2:36 pm #163235GACardParticipantFree
Yadi removed with injury. We have to be getting close to bringing double A guys up with all these injuries
Arenado coming through today!June 5, 2021 at 2:42 pm #163236
Cards with the bases loaded and one out. They really need to do some damage here.June 5, 2021 at 2:42 pm #163237
I guess it is good Yadi is lately willing to come out of a game when he gets ganged up too much.June 5, 2021 at 2:44 pm #163238
Bases loaded K by Sosa. Off with his head.June 5, 2021 at 2:46 pm #163239
Nog leaves them all stranded, off with his head too.June 5, 2021 at 2:47 pm #163240
That hurt … needed to find a way to plate at least one run out of the bases loaded situation.
Shildt opts to pinch hit for Oviedo and now Helsley will enter the game.June 5, 2021 at 2:47 pm #163241
Well that was a letdown.June 5, 2021 at 2:47 pm #163242stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
Stinks to have multiple extra base hits in an inning and still only score one run. The team is just not taking advantage of opportunities lately.June 5, 2021 at 2:56 pm #163245
Helsley did a nice job to work around the lead off double.June 5, 2021 at 2:59 pm #163247DavidParticipantFree
Does anyone know why Schildt pinch hit for Oviedo opting to bring a struggling middle relief core in the game as oppose letting Oviedo ride it out and resting some arms. And btw, what was the offensive result for pinch hitting? I honestly don’t know. I’m at work so I’m not watching the game.June 5, 2021 at 3:10 pm #163248
I wasn’t watching either David, mowing the lawn.appatently nogowski struck out.June 5, 2021 at 3:12 pm #163249
Damn those walks come around and bite.
