    Yeah, he couldn’t stand all the wind.

    Hats off to Wacha. One gopher to the reigning MVP is it after six.

    Brian, I should have clarified my comment earlier that of the candidates for the 5th starter only Hudson stood out. Leaving Gant for 6th starter possibly, although if an injury occurs one of the Memphis rotation would be called up also.

    What a great start by Wacha. This might be the best he has mixed up his pitches. Even throwing at a lower velocity than we are used to.

    Top of 7. Albers still dealing for Milwaukee.

    Bader – Lays one down to the left side….Albers pounces on it like a hungry cat bare handed…. and whirles around and his throw will just nip the streaking Harrison Bader at 1st for the out. Nice try…..I would imagine that Bader would be successful at about a 70% clip in those sort of circumstances where he decided to bunt.

    Robinson(Phing for Wacha)- Pops out in short center to SS Perez.

    Carp – Taps it right in front of the plate where the catcher Pina grabs it and sort of lollipops it on over to Aguilar at 1st to retire the side.

    Alex Reyes on here in the Brewer 7th to preserve order.

    If Braun pokes a bomb here to tie things up…… I’ll frigging scream!

    Interesting move by Shildt, especially the way Miller pitched Yelich.

    Just a little swear word of two as Braun single to right to make this a 4-2 ballgame. Braun very easily could have been rung up on that 2-1 Miller offering….if this game is in St. Louis, it’s still a 4-1 game.

    Why bring in Miller there? He walks Yelich on 4 pitches anyway, then faced Braun. Leave Reyes in to face Braun…questionable at best on that move.

    So refreshing to have Greg Holland back on the team.

    Miller K’s Aguilar with some high heat to extinguish the threat. But the Crew plate 2 making this a 4-3 Cardinal ballgame. I would literally give my left pinky for a few insurance runs here.

    And don’t even get me started on the lazy attempt by Ozuna to come in for a mile high popup in shallow left. And he clearly looks out of shape.

    I agree CRS4Ever. I would like to have seen Reyes finish the inning. Not clear how the Cards plan to get the final six outs.

    Standing next to Aguilar on first base, Ozuna looks pretty buff. What we don’t know on the popup is if Carpenter was calling everyone off or if he asked for help. Ozuna surely stayed far clear of a collision.

    Pugs, “literally”? There won’t be anything left of you by the ASB if you start giving up body parts this early!

    Top of 8. Taylor Williams center stage for Milwaukee.

    Goldy – Lines a shot to center, but unfortunately right in the vicinity of Lorenzo Cain who easily snares it for the out.

    JMart – Hits it right on thed button, but right at Perez at short and Taylor Williams must be feeling mighty lucky…..he should have bought a Powerball ticket about 15 miles due south of here this past Wednesday night and he might of found himself a few hundred million clams richer.

    Ozuna – Walked.

    DeJong – Whiffs.

    Thanks for thinking of my welfare, CardsRedSox4Ever! You’re right…..I shouldn’t sell out so cheap. Boy we need this split though…..big time! Getting out of here with a split will feel very nice considering….very nice.

    This game has feel to it, unlike the 4th of the season. More like a game down the stretch. It would be nice to leave with a split. Hope Hicks brings it in the 9th.

    Pugs, besides, it would affect how you hold the bat!

    Top of 9. Grandal replaces Pina behind the plate and 60 feet in front of the plate, Jacob Barnes replaces Williams. Let’s hope this Barnes does not pitch like the earlier Barnes in his first inning of labor.

    Yadi – Taps a little squibber out near the pitcher and Barnes will have enough time to overnight this ball via FedEx to get Yadi out…..1 down.

    Wong – Whacks a comebacker off the top of Barnes’ glove and Wong will have himself an infield hit!

    Bader – Blisters a shot, but right at Moustakas at 2nd for out #2 here in the Redbird 9th.

    Fowler – Wong swipes 2nd but the Grandal throw nails Kolten right on his left ear on a fly and he’s hurt. The medical crew comes charging out…..let’s pray here. You hate to see this for 2 reasons. First off and most importantly for Wong’s welfare. And secondly a play like this will effect his stolen base proficiency for at least the near future….looks like he’s ok….yea!!! Fowler grounds out.

    It sure would, Brian. Oh oh…..this 9th is not starting out as I had envisioned it would with Hicks dealing

    Appears we’re on the same glide path as last year. Brewers also.

    Good golly, that hurt. But it’s a nice day in St Louis, think I’ll go out and enjoy what’s left of it.
