Hope Helsley is already stretching, Wacha doesn’t look good at all.August 25, 2019 at 4:50 pm #103705

Goldy bailed out Fowler there. Fowler should have scored on the Edman double but he was jogging. Maybe he thought it was going out. Even Danny Mac noticed.August 25, 2019 at 4:51 pm #103706

EDman and Goldschmidt with 2 out hits make it 6-2 good guys.August 25, 2019 at 5:12 pm #103709
Boy, 74 pitches in 3 innings for Wacha is less than ideal.
Not to be outdone…the Rockies pitchers have already thrown 66 pitches in two innings. Might be a slugfest at Busch today.August 25, 2019 at 5:13 pm #103710
Nice dinger by Marp. He needs a couple of multi hit games to get some confidence back.August 25, 2019 at 5:50 pm #103713
Wacha was acceptable but nothing more. Decent strikeout stuff but not too efficient. Helsley cleans up the 5th and it’s 7-3 Cards halfway home.
In other news, the Cubs now trail the Nats 7-5 in the bottom of the 11th.August 25, 2019 at 5:56 pm #103714
Cubs lose! Cubs lose!August 25, 2019 at 5:58 pm #103715
You don’t want to be playing the Nats now. They just polished off their sweep of the cubs. Hopefully the Nats will cool off by mid-September.August 25, 2019 at 5:59 pm #103716
Dexter with yet another pop up double that plates two and makes it a 9-3 lead.August 25, 2019 at 6:27 pm #103718
CiF, Pugs and others would enjoy to note that I’m snapping beans as I watch the Cards score their 10th run tonight. Marp now with his 3rd hit today…that’s the kind of Marp we could use down the stretch.August 25, 2019 at 6:40 pm #103722
Wow … cannot believe Bader missed that oneAugust 25, 2019 at 6:48 pm #103723
Thomas gets the run back!August 25, 2019 at 6:50 pm #103724
Nice yard work by Lane Thomas to make it 11-4. I’d like to see Marp bat with a shot to go 4-4. Jimmy noted that he was looking a lot more balanced at the plate.August 25, 2019 at 7:05 pm #103725
How long do the Cardinals keep running Wacha out there for 4-5 innings of work?August 25, 2019 at 7:08 pm #103726
Nice job of settling in by BrebbiaAugust 25, 2019 at 7:09 pm #103727

I’d have to think til the season ends. He’s been ok… not great but ok, and Helsley or Ponce will be able to piggyback with him I’d think each start.August 25, 2019 at 7:10 pm #103728

Going to have to hope so. He just does not go deep enough as a starter.August 25, 2019 at 7:23 pm #103729
One out to go for Brebbia! He was shaky in his first inning but lights out here in the 9th. He gets McMahon to pop up and the brooms are out!! 11-4 Cards and a 2.5 game lead.August 25, 2019 at 7:24 pm #103730
Great weekend for the CardsAugust 25, 2019 at 7:46 pm #103732
I haven’t seen this level of confidence in our guys in 4 years. Granted, the Rockies aren’t the 50’s Yankees, but a 4-0 sweep is good by any measure. Brewers series is critical for them, important for us, so expect urgency on their part. Will be fun to watch. Go Cards!August 25, 2019 at 8:06 pm #103733
<Damn rain, making me watch the (ick) Cubs (1-!) in the 6th.>
I was recording the Little League World Series also and that game started on time so I watched it until the end and the Cards had just got started so it worked out nicely. That LL Championship team from New Orleans sure was a great hitting and fielding team. They deserved the win and brought the championship to the US (or returned it I guess – Hawaii won it last year). One of the New Orleans kids set a LL WS record with 17 hits in the series and the rest didn’t miss any either.
Happy with the Cards game. Even Mr Carp is showing signs of life again and it will be needed if Kolten stays out for any amount of time. Sorry to see Wacha pulled one out short of a win but I guess that is the way the game is played today. To leave him him may have resulted in a slippery slope and Helsley shut it down quick.August 25, 2019 at 8:39 pm #103734
Need to keep it up and go ahead and bury Milwaukee now.August 25, 2019 at 9:05 pm #103735
I am looking at Wacha as an “opener” from this point forward. The Cards really do not have any real options at this point. You hope he can provide four to five good innings and then a long reliever takes over. The concern with this approach is the the first inning has been troublesome for Wacha.August 25, 2019 at 10:20 pm #103738
Wacha didn’t pitch neccessarily bad but your starter has to go more than 4.2 IP. Good game for Carp. I really hope this is the start of something really positive from him. He looked like a different hitter today than he has all season.August 26, 2019 at 2:04 am #103742

A starter who can give you only 4 innings and usually gets lit up in the 1st inning? And the organization has no viable replacement? Seems hard to believe. A lot of great things happening though. “Kid” Edman is the real deal and should never enter Memphis airspace ever again. We have seen a lot of young promising Cardinal position players get a taste of the show during this past year, but this kid’s star shines brightest of them all. There’s no coincidence that this team’s vastly improved play started with this young man’s promotion……and of course Flaherty and Hudson seeing the light and becoming lights out.
