I didn’t see Albert’s first two Ks, but this last AB it looked like he didn’t have a prayer of hitting anything. Batting line now is .202/.305/.349/.654June 19, 2022 at 2:26 pm #188515
Bottom of 6. Neil Pallante at 59 pitches as we commence this inning.
Dalbec pops out to Donovan at 2nd.
Devers is hit on the inside elbow by a Pallante fastball…..he looks none the worse for the experience as he shakes his head briefly and trots on down to take 1st base the hard way.
Martinez strikes out swinging, #4 for Neil. And Greg Maddux’s brother Mike is heading out to the mound for a little chat with Pallante.
Bogaerts ….and whatever Mike Maddux had to say to Neil, I hope he says something different to him the next time as Bogaerts walks on 4 consecutive balls…….and that will do it for Pallante……an extremely successful outing for him!

Cabnasty needs to be on today. Offense not getn it so gonna have to shut them down here.June 19, 2022 at 2:36 pm #188517blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual
Add Pallent’s outing to Thompson’s yesterday and maybe there is some reason for optimism about the pitching as we go into the second half pretty soon. Hopefully neither does whatever Woody did to get in the perpetual dog house.June 19, 2022 at 2:37 pm #188518
Bottom of 6 (continued). Genesis (properly pronounced “Hen-a-sis”) “Cabby” Cabrera on in relief for St. Louis. Cabby inherits a 2 out runners at 1st & 2nd situation.
Verdugo on 3-2 walks and that will fill the sacks up to their maximum with Boston base runners.
Story pops it up to his counterpart Brendan Donovan at 2nd base to retire the side and Cabby once again earns his paycheck……the Cards should think about tipping him with as solid as he’s been .

Top of 7. Pivetta starts with 94 pitches this inning.
Bader waves unsuccessfully at a high hard one for strike 3.
Herrera strikes out looking and both he and Albert are a rather unperfect 6-6 today, all strike outs. Will this Pivetta ever leave this game? We need desperately to get into their pen.
Edman on 3-2 strikes out looking.

We’re moving into the “time to get going” territory. Need to hear the crack of some bats, and soon.June 19, 2022 at 2:57 pm #188521
Bottom of 7. Cabby still dealing for the Cards.
Vasquez doubles into the right field corner.
Bradley Jr grounds it to Goldy just a few feet in back of the 1st base bag and he’ll step on the bag as Vasquez motors on over to 3rd.
Dalbec….. infield playing in. Dalbec strikes out swinging on one in the dirt and Herrera nicely blocks the ball then checks on the runner at 3rd base and fires a strike to Goldy at 1s base to complete the strike out.
Refsnyder lines a single to center and it’s 3-1 Boston. No more runs por favor.
Devers walks and Cabby’s day is in the books.

Bottom of 7 (continued). Drew Verhagen on for the Redbirds.
Martinez…..I fear this guy as he’s overdue to do something. Martinez strikes out swinging.

Just catching up. Seen this knuckle sandwich pitcher Pivetta before. Having the game of his life today. When the bats go dead I like small ball. Somebody tell me again why Pulhous is in against RH pitching. We’re sneaking up on them?June 19, 2022 at 3:13 pm #188525
Top of 8. John Schreiber on for Boston.
Donovan strikes out swinging.
Goldy strikes out swinging…..and could someone please put the ball in play.
Arenado strikes out swinging and I’m starting to sound like a broken record here unfortunately.

Swinging for the cheap seats again. Need to start with just making contact. Put it on play please.June 19, 2022 at 3:15 pm #188527
Somebody do something. Please.June 19, 2022 at 3:26 pm #188528
Bottom of 8. Verhagen on the mound.
Bogaerts strikes out looking.
Verdugo….. Verhagen to Verdugo….wonder if they’re both from Vermont?…. Verdugo dumps a short fly out of reach of everybody into short center field for a base hit.
A passed ball moves both runners up 90 feet.
Vasquez oh oh…..launches a deep drive to left-center field and it’s long gone……6-1 Red Sox now ….ouch that stung.
Bradley Jr lines out to Goldy at 1st base.
Dalbec busts his bat but still manages to send a fly to short center field that falls in for a hit.

Well we were down 6-1 entering the 9th inning a couple of nights ago to these chaps and just missed the comeback…. maybe today we get it done.June 19, 2022 at 3:27 pm #188529
Guess the other guts did CIF 3 run Sox dinger. Oh-oh.June 19, 2022 at 3:33 pm #188530
Oh no O’Niel hurts himself running through 1st base bag. Noooooo…June 19, 2022 at 3:40 pm #188531
Top of 9. Tyler Danish pitching for Boston. Houck was slated to go, but the Vasquez 3 run bomb made Boston change their mind.
O’Neill doubles to right-center field and he’s pulled a hammy or something….. he’s exiting this game. Sosa pinch running for him.
Carlson bounces out to Dalbec at 1st base with Sosa moving over to 3rd.
Gorman on 3-2 walks on Danish’s 9th pitch to Nolan. Let’s keep the merry-go-round a moving.
Bader flies out to a flashing Verdugo in short left-center field.
Pez ….bombs away!!…..wayyy back and that shot dwarfs the Green Monster….6-4 ballgame now.

…so the two batters (Gorman, Yepez) who could have, should have been in the lineup versus a righty starter instead of Albert Pujols — 0-for-3 with nothing but strikeouts — are finally given a chance to contribute in the 9th inning, and they give the team two great at-bats (against a righty, of course).
Anybody want to tell me this is Mozeliak’s fault? This is yet again Marmol, Marmol, Marmol. This game was not at Busch, no tickets to be sold. The manager is a dunce, folks.June 19, 2022 at 3:48 pm #188535
Top of 9 (continued). Ha ha, Wooster!
Tanner Houck on for Boston.
Edman cracks a liner back at …and off Houck and it caroms over to Devers at 3rd base and his throw will not get Edman at 1st base… infield single.
Donovan on 3-2 strikes out swinging to end the game.

I totally agree that Albert shouldn’t have been in the lineup today. He should never have been signed in the first place. Today was his last ever appearance in Boston so nostalgia once again rules the day. Mo set the tone before the season that nostalgia was more important than putting together the best team and Ollie has caved to that pressure.
