    Its about time for a good outing by Fletcher. Hopefully we can build off the 8th inning last night and put some runs on the board.

    Anybody suspect that perhaps – just perhaps – both Carpenter and Goldstein are about to turn things around?

    Good points, Ratfink. They seem to play better at Sportsman’s Park.

    I think Woodford will get the call on the 29th. Didn’t realize Jake’s stats line has changed a little in 2019. Opponents batting .195, walks up, fly balls and K’s up.

    Good win last night, let’s keep that momentum going.

    I’d like nothing more than this team proving wrong those of us who believe they are on an unrecoverable downward trend. If they make the playoffs and do well, Mo will look like a genius, many of us will look like idiots, and I’m ok with that. Maybe today is the start of that reversal? First b-2-b win this month…?

    In addition to the first B2B wins, it would also be the first series win this month. It has been a long, dry spell for sure.

    This is, I mean was the longest dry spell I can remember in a while. I want to see them more aggressive at the plate and on the mound. Using hit and run is a good way to get a slumping batter out of his funk. Swinging 3-0 occasionally, And as I have said before, pitch inside. Back hitters off the plate.

    Fowler with some nice base running in the first, stealing second and tagging up on Dejong’s fly ball. We will see if it pays off.

    Very true, stlcard25. On the other hand, that is what true leadoff men are supposed to do. It seems so unusual for the Cardinals because they haven’t had one for years.

    Fowler has been hit by a pitch in three consecutive games. I always wonder if there is going to be a new injury when I see the ball hitting his foot.

    Flaherty has four Ks through two scoreless innings.

    Ozuna’s foul ball was registered at 117.2 mph. Too bad he couldn’t have straightened it out a bit. Instead, he walks to load the bases for the Bases Loaded King.

    Unfortunately, Carp can’t come through. Still 0-0.

    Hicks’ poor pitching is a perfect reflection of poor bullpen management. The fact he has barely pitched this month is why he’s all over the place. He needs consistency.

    what a way to blow an easy win…with 2 lefties in the 9th why wasn’t Miller in there?

    Yeah I don’t blame hicks. I blame a team that didn’t pitch find an inning for him for 3 weeks and thinks he should be ready to go two nights in a row. Schildt extension happened way too fast. Dude is incompetent. Don’t care if miller pulls a miracle or not

    Schildt may not even the problem. Maybe the front office just micromanaged these managers

    Shildt has a losing record since the interim tag was removed.

    Braves have more hits in the 9th than this pathetic line up has all night.

    That’s the way to go out in the home half of the 9th and put pressure on the opposing team. 7 pitches and three pathetic outs. This team is beyond soft.

    Webb in relief in the 10th. Looking bleak now.

    Webb walks the go ahead run in after the intentional pass. The boos ring out, as they very well should. Horrendous managing and execution.

    Webb walks in the go ahead run. I love that he replaced Brebbia. Good on ya Shildty! I think everybody could see that coming except him.

    A team and franchise of pretenders. It is Memorial Day and this team hasn’t won back to back games this month.
