    Memphis pounced on Columbus with an 8 spot in the bottom of the 1st and it’s holding up, as they play in the 6th inning in southern Tennessee in an 8-2 Memphis ballgame. Gorman with a towering 2 run blow to set the stage for the 8 run outburst. Springfield getting it handed to them in northwest Arkansas this evening by the ungodly score of 18-1 in the 6th. McGovern got absolutely lit up in his two innings of hard labor, yielding 11 runs …..now that’s not a Roman numeral for 2…… you’re seeing it correctly….eleven runs all earned on eleven hits. Walker has gone yard in Peoria’s game this evening at Dozer Park, in a game that’s shaping up to be a Chiefs loss to the cubbies affiliate.

    Well, Pugs, the Peoria game is delayed and may not be completed with the rains that have come through the area.

    Pugs – 18 runs on 20 hits in only 6 innings. Ouch..

    I think it’s still an official game, Forschster. Both the Chiefs loss and the Walker dinger should go in the books.

    “Ouch” is right, Cranny. Those 18 runs in only 6 innings is about a week’s worth of offense for our Cards.

    Kevin McGovern started for Springfield and gave up 11 runs on 11 hits in 2 innings. Kevin is a 32 year old who had only pitched in
    Independent League ball before being signed by the Cards this year and sent to Springfield. Wow. Have we reached the bottom of the barrel?

    Gorman’s HR was his 20th of the year, and he’s seemed to have adjusted to AAA pitching. Good to see. I think he’s the starting 2B by June of next year.

    I agree, 25. He may even win the job in ST.

    Juan Yepez had a granny in the Columbus-Memphis game. He’s a machine this year.

    Good night for Hudson. Still long way to go. I’m wondering if the cardinals are going to try to bring him up this year just for a start. I hope not. I’d rather see him just get himself right for next season.

    The hope is to activate Hudson this season as a reliever. He would return to starting in 2022.

    Well Brian I hope he doesn’t get hurt or else it was a bad gamble. If he stays down and waits til next season and gets hurt, you can say you took all precautions. Bringing him up in September even for relief poses a lot of questions if it doesn’t work out. In my mind it would be like somebody needs to go questions if that happens.

    I guess it gets down to trust in the Cardinals medical staff. There is also a line of thinking that Hudson could pitch better next season because he got his feet wet this year.

    “Pez” also throttled a 3 run blast later on giving him 19 homers on the campaign, StlCard25. That’s 7 rbi tonight for Mr. Yepez. Very good sign that he seems to be strengthening as the season moves along. Oh, and Gorman drilled a solo 4-bagger too…..his only hit in 5 ab’s.
