Still good except that first pitch down the pipe to the LH Malone-bye bye birdie! We need something out of DeJong and Bader now. Everybody else has done something so farJuly 2, 2021 at 9:15 pm #165411
DeJong and Bader show up! Carp pinch hit goes down in flames? Well we paid a short visit to 3rd base anyway!July 2, 2021 at 9:41 pm #165413
Cabby extinguishes the Colorado threat. I’d be thrilled seeing Cabby getting a little all-star recognitional love. If BicycleMike’s 13 Cardinal runs are going to come to fruition, our boys better start wielding the lumber with a bit more authority than what they’ve put on display thus far this evening.July 2, 2021 at 10:03 pm #165414
Can the Cards get something going in the top of the ninth?July 2, 2021 at 10:24 pm #165415
They can and they do … Rondon with the big hit to tie the game.July 2, 2021 at 10:26 pm #165416
Great to see Rondon come through
The first and last strike on Carlson was the same pitch in the same spot. Both called strikes- gotta work on that. Tie game!July 2, 2021 at 10:41 pm #165417
Yency (hate opposing pitchers with “CY” in their first name) Almonte dealing for the Rocks in the 10th. Time to end this madness.July 2, 2021 at 10:46 pm #165418
Cy Almonte comes in sporting an ERA(9.72) that Nadia ComanecJuly 2, 2021 at 10:51 pm #165419
Nice rally in the top of the tenth. Two-out hits by Yadi and Edmund put the Cards up 5-3! Then Bader tops it off with a grand slam! 9-3 Redbirds!July 2, 2021 at 10:52 pm #165420
Bader goes yard with all hands on deck!! 9-3 Cardinals….. let’s get just 4 more for BicycleMike.July 2, 2021 at 10:53 pm #165421forsch31ParticipantFree
Way to go Bader. I guess he has earned being called Harrison for at least 1 day.July 2, 2021 at 10:54 pm #165422forsch31ParticipantFree
Pugs, I hope BikeMike stuck around for all this.July 2, 2021 at 11:01 pm #1654231982 willieParticipantPaid - Annual
Well solid game by Oviedo tonight,not going too excited but still great. Took a while but bats finally came around. Hopefully no real drama here in bottom of tenth.July 2, 2021 at 11:02 pm #165424
Good win for the Redbirds! To come back and tie the game in the ninth and win it in the tenth! They kept fighting and that is what you like to see!July 2, 2021 at 11:04 pm #1654251982 willieParticipantPaid - Annual
Good win, hopefully this carries over.July 2, 2021 at 11:09 pm #165426
Oh I think BicycleMike is reveling in the sweetness of victory as we speak, Forschster. With 13 Coors in him, it’ll take 3 ushers, 2 beefy security guards and the pretty hot dog vendor gal dangling a cold one just out of BicycleMike’s reach to get him out of that ballpark. Stars of the game:

I am here guys. Wow, crazy game! Got lots of thoughts on this one but will have to wait until tomorrow for most of them. We are sticking around for the fireworks show.
Some quick comments. I am not sure Harrison Bader has ever hit a ball as hard as that slam. He absolutely crushed it!! Rockies fans still love Arenado.
Rondon had a great AB. Lawrence could not throw strikes, and you could just see Rondon taking two pitches thinking there is no way this guy is going to get the ball over. But when he did twice in a row, he was ready to pick out something to put a good swing to. Very impressive.
That was after DeJong fanned on a terrible pitch, and then Bader walked. DeJong almost cost us the game there. The guy just does not have it at the plate, although he looked good on defense.
Hope O’Neill is not going on the IL. We just got our outfield set.
Gotta run. More comments tomorrow. A lot of energy in the park – you just don’t get that on television.July 2, 2021 at 11:15 pm #165428
Good game for us! Nice game for Oviedo- bullpens a little shaky but they had a quick hook. Worked out good. A hit by everyone on the team makes alot of difference. Sosa will do better if he swings at the strikes- gotta pull the trigger. Go Cardinals!July 2, 2021 at 11:19 pm #165429ZTRParticipantFree

Couple more items. When did we become the St Louis Black Sox? Cards had black socks on tonight. My guess is our socks got lost somewhere over Kansas, and we had to borrow some from the home club.
Also, when did Gant get a haircut? He came trotting in from the pen and I was like, “Who is this guy?” Then he was warming up and I saw the “Gant 53”.July 2, 2021 at 11:29 pm #165431LACardFanParticipantFree

Hah! Good things happen while I’m sleeping! Was still digesting a Friday night pizza with grand kids who just arrived from Texas and woke up to that spectacular 10th inning.

Nice surprise seeing the box score this morning. Who was that guy in the Bader mask?
Seriously, unloading on a high ERA batting practice pitcher is what you have to do when things are going like they have been. Jump on the chances you get. The guy’s ERA is 11 now. We are not likely to run into that in San Fran though. Hope O’Neill is fine, but we do have The Nootster waiting to light it up, unless they released him already.July 3, 2021 at 7:32 am #165437bccranParticipant
