the cardinals just don’t do the small things. maybe Martinez can save the day.April 19, 2019 at 9:22 pm #88076
a very bad inningApril 19, 2019 at 9:23 pm #88077
As noted, the defense was back. Carpenter should have moved much farther down the line as no one was covering third base. He was way too cautious. If he had gone down the line, he could have broke for home and scored easily when the throw was made to first. The Mets telecast is replaying it. I bet FSM is not.

JMart whiffs and after 5 the Birds still find themselves on the short end of a 4-1 score. Still plenty of time to get these chumps!April 19, 2019 at 9:28 pm #88080
A Helsley fastball landed on the grass berm, courtesy of Pete Alonso. Mets 5-1 in the sixth.April 19, 2019 at 9:36 pm #88081
Going from bad to worse. Could be a three run lead if Carp had headed for home. I kept waiting for the score to change until they panned back to third to show Carp still standing there. Now we need a big inning or two, and it’s not looking good. One bright side — Helsley can definitely throw a ball.April 19, 2019 at 9:39 pm #88082
Fowler doubled and Thomas homered in his first MLB at-bat. Cards close to 5-3 in the sixth.April 19, 2019 at 9:44 pm #88083
Lane Thomas goes opposite field and makes it a ball game again. Keep the Mets to 5 runs and we have a chance of stealing this one back.April 19, 2019 at 9:47 pm #88084
problem is bwalton, the more you edge home, you can be caught at third. in your scenario the pitcher automatically is throwing to first. carp isn’t very fast and for him to get out far enough to score would have given the pitcher a chance to pick him off. the pitcher looked at him so if he had been off too far, he would have went there. he only needs to be off three steps, maybe less if he isn’t going back to bag. ive seen that play go just like that and I know it well cause I taught my son and others how to do it when he was pitching as well as others. use runners aggressiveness against them. but in the end its over. turning into a good game.April 19, 2019 at 9:57 pm #88085
well here we go, time to get some hits.April 19, 2019 at 9:57 pm #88086
Congrats to L.T. on kicking off his ML career in style. I don’t see how we could possibly lose a game like this??April 19, 2019 at 10:00 pm #88087
well that was a horrible way to start off an inning goldy.April 19, 2019 at 10:24 pm #88088
its getting close, might have been smart to pinch run for Molina if we have any fast pitchers on bench not going to pitch.April 19, 2019 at 10:26 pm #88089
good play by third, shouldn’t have thrown it probably. if he had faked first, probably would have had Molina in a run down but our good fortune and didn’t have to pinch run.April 19, 2019 at 10:27 pm #88090
we need that elusive sacrifice fly.April 19, 2019 at 10:27 pm #88091
This game will be in the bag shortly….nice comeback win for our boys!April 19, 2019 at 10:35 pm #88092
well they fail with runners in scoring position again. just like Edmonds said, not getting runners in with less than two outs just kills your teamApril 19, 2019 at 10:39 pm #88104
I hope pugs is right but they need to get the starting pitching figured out or this could get ugly late July. Bullpen will be burned out.April 19, 2019 at 10:40 pm #88105
bullpens been mostly solid for us tonight. time to win it in the bottom of the ninthApril 19, 2019 at 10:51 pm #88109
Ouch! Tomorrow is a new day though…..and with it shall come a renewed sense of energy and enthusiasm.April 19, 2019 at 10:52 pm #88110
Another poor outing from the starters and some missed opportunities.
Cubs are now .500April 19, 2019 at 10:52 pm #88111
Well, there was no one near third base so Carpenter could have easily gotten back, even with a more aggressive lead. As it was, that run could have been the difference in the 5-4 loss.April 19, 2019 at 10:53 pm #88112

I watched about 3 minutes of this one as they failed to get the tying run in during the 8th, and that was 3 minutes too much.
If they can’t beat the guy with the 14 ERA, how will they beat either of the next two? I’m afraid I fully expect this to be a home sweep.April 19, 2019 at 11:28 pm #88114
well bwalton we are just gonna be on different sides there. soon as the ball was hit and fielded, the third baseman should have been there or close being that’s where the third baseman goes when the ball is hit to someone else. now maybe in this case he was just out there standing in a daze, I don’t know but his job was to be there in short order and carpenter doesn’t have time to see if the third baseman is standing twenty feet from the bag when the ball is fielded, he has to watch the play and react based on what he sees there assuming the third baseman is at third or closing in on it by the time the pitcher fielded it. being that carpenter isn’t quick or fast, I don’t blame him. if he had went and done what people are saying and got thrown out, people would have been on him for making the first out at home. the real bum isn’t carpenter, its ozuna for not getting him in with less than two outs along with others in same situation with other guys on third.April 19, 2019 at 11:40 pm #88115
They might want to kick the tires on Keuchel or Gio if he becomes available tomorrow. They need another veteran on this roster. Thought it all along.
