Cabrera, Gallegos and Reyes have pitched two days in a row. Tonight we need to build a big lead. Need some innings from Oviedo.June 16, 2021 at 9:35 am #164105June 16, 2021 at 10:52 am #164113June 16, 2021 at 11:42 am #164116RatsbuddyParticipantFree
Something wrong with Arenado? He just had a day off a couple of weeks ago. This lineup is going to struggle to score runs against Alcantara. I’m calling this one 4-1 Miami with that lineup. Hope I’m wrong.
We do get a break today, however. The Cubs have lost the first two games against the Mets. And now they will face DeGrom in the Wednesday night game at Shea Stadium. Hopefully DeGrom lasts more than an inning or two.
Din-din today is the weekly trip to the Gasthof, the Amish restaurant. Fried chicken, mashed potatoes/gravy, green beans noodles, dressing, fish, cherry cobbler, ice cream, sweet tea – yum yum!

Oh Goody, Carp batting cleanup. That should help.June 16, 2021 at 12:21 pm #164126blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual
Maybe we will see one of those goofy looking double play attempts from a shifted infield.June 16, 2021 at 12:30 pm #164127
I wonder if Carpenter has the worst numbers all-time for a cleanup hitter in mid June? Obviously some guys in the dead ball era may have had anemic stats at this point in the season and hit fourth.
But in the last 50 years or so, he has to be down there near the bottom.June 16, 2021 at 12:45 pm #164128
Sosa making things happen with his speed, but having DeJong hit behind you is not good for building momentum.June 16, 2021 at 12:50 pm #164129Cardinal in FranceParticipantFree
C’mon now Bike-M, be fair. He’s inching his way up to .180.June 16, 2021 at 12:50 pm #164130
Oviedo looks good thru three. Need him to start extending his starts. Would love to see him go six innings today.June 16, 2021 at 1:00 pm #164131
I always pronounced Alcantara’s name “Al-Can-Tar-A”. But McLaughlin says “Al-Con-Tra”.
Anyway, nice first time through for Oviedo. When he has command his stuff is good enough to play at this level.
Really reminds me of a latter day Mike Torrez.June 16, 2021 at 1:20 pm #164132
Carpenter with a typical AB, he is going to either strikeout or ground out to the right side. Fortunately he did the ground out this time and moved O’Neill to third with one out.
Oh man, Sosa hits into a DP. Cards come up empty.June 16, 2021 at 1:50 pm #164133
Got my wish! Oviedo thru six innings. Can he go thru seven? Common Redbirds, get those bats going!June 16, 2021 at 2:04 pm #164134
You can tell this is a get away game. Very quick.June 16, 2021 at 2:07 pm #164135
Great outing by Oviedo! Seven scoreless innings. He successfully worked through adversity. A lot of first pitch strikes! Congrats young man!June 16, 2021 at 2:12 pm #164136
Sosa HBP! Initial reaction is that does not look good!
Wow, he stays in the game. Would not have thought that would happen.June 16, 2021 at 2:32 pm #164137
Cards need to get something going here!June 16, 2021 at 2:58 pm #164138
Cards win! Yadi drives in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth. That’s three straight!
You guys keep it going! I am heading to Tennesse to watch some games in the Appy League this weekend.June 16, 2021 at 3:12 pm #164139so_cal_cards_fanParticipantFree

Oviedo pitched better than his ERA. Won some games now that we’re getting good pitching. No bungling defense today either. We can win if our pitching can keep the runs down!June 16, 2021 at 3:44 pm #164142DavidParticipantFree
We swept the Marlins scoring a total of 7 runs. You’ll pardon me if I don’t get overly excited. I still think we need a new hitting coach and I’m sorry…. I know I’m in the minority here but Schildt is not the one to lead this team to a 12 title. His use of the starting pitching staff is questionable at best along with his confidence in them even when they’re doing well. At 87 pitches, Oviedo who was in control and in command of his pitches was taken out of the game in hopes that we could produce a 2 out hit from a 111 hitter. How can that be justified? I know that’s not because they want to save Oviedos and he only lasted 7 because his spot didn’t come up in the 6th. If you’re a starting Cardinal pitcher and under the age of 35, you will not pitch past the 7th inning if your spot in the order is up or you give up a hit after 5 . We need a new hitting coach and new Manager or this will be the Cardinals future…, Winning series against Young and inexperienced teams and being overmatched or out managed, in some cases both with the rest of the league.June 16, 2021 at 3:55 pm #164143
Sheesh, 1968 revisited in this series. Always good to get a win in those close, low-scoring contests.
O’Neill had a pitch to drive in that last AB, up in the zone. When Alcantara threw it I said out loud “right there!”, thinking Ty would jump on it. But he let it go for the backwards K.
Yadi got the same pitch and ended the game.June 16, 2021 at 4:14 pm #164144RatsbuddyParticipantFree
At this point all I can says is…….”C’MON DeGROM AND THE METS!!!”June 16, 2021 at 4:18 pm #164146jj-cf-stlParticipantPaid - Annual
If the manager lets Oviedo stay in long enough to lose, he’s “questionable” for that too.
Turns out Shildt played it right, because Oviedo didn’t get lit up and take another loss, and the team got a Win.
