6:10 p.m. RHP Jack Flaherty (4-3, 4.08) vs. RHP Jacob deGrom (3-6, 3.45) Fox Sports Midwest // KMOXJune 13, 2019 at 11:34 am #94345
I expect Jack to be back on track after last start and I can see a pitchers duel thru 6 or 7 with one of the managers ruining it by pulling his starter. Nothing like Gooden and Tudor of 85 where each starter went 9 in an epic 1-0, cardinal victory. Anyhow, a 3 run blast late gives the Redbirds a 4-1 victory.June 13, 2019 at 12:03 pm #94346
Going to be tough to win 3 of 4 in this series having to face both DeGrom and Syndergaard. As Danny Mac mentioned last night thought his might just be what finally gets Paul DeJong back on track as he usually hits the Mets really well.
I’ll be tuned in tonight unless I go to the Dubois County Bombers Ohio Valley League game. I’ll be checking the score if I do go. And the Cubs are at the Dodgers tonight so I might catch that one late when I get home with my Double Whopper from Burger King.

I wonder if there is a chance Junior Fernandez could be added if Helsley is out for a while? Assuming Cabrera might be sent back to start at Memphis. I know Junior doesn’t have AAA experience, but that hasn’t stopped them from pulling a AA pitcher directly to the bigs. Junior has pitched very well lately, and like Knizner and Edman would need to be added prior to this years Rule 5 draft any way.June 13, 2019 at 4:38 pm #94363
I’ve decided to stay home, light up a Palma Real, and watch the Cards/Mets and then the Cubs/Dodgers. Not going to the Dubois County Bombers game tonight. Its actually too cool. Highs only upper 60s here in SW Indiana today and its windy. I figure by game time or by the 4th or 5th inning it might be even cooler. Who knows, it might even snow. I’ll catch one of their games in the next week or two. Hopefully in my new 2019 BMW 540i.
I’m calling this one 6-1 Mets tonight with Alonso’s dong the big highlight for the Mets.

I’m refusing to predict any scores until I get a grasp on why my prognostications have been so hideous of late. At the risk of leaving the scent of braggadocia, my 9 year documented 82% success rate has been taking a hit….just a miserable May and June!
Passing on a Dubois County Bombers game because it’s too chilly, Esteemed Rat! Please toughen up and attend that game tonight, Rat. I have a strong feeling that if you sit behind the visitors dugout, and arrive to your seat toting a snow cone, cotton candy and huge bag of in the shell roasted peanuts, the future Mrs. Esteemed RatsBuddy will come to meet you. GO TO THAT GAME, RAT!!June 13, 2019 at 6:52 pm #94371
Now that’s what Carp needs to do…just hit it where they ain’t! 1-0 CardsJune 13, 2019 at 7:05 pm #94372
Now Gopherball Flaherty gets the first two outs and then gives up a single and a home run to cough up the lead. 2-1 MetsJune 13, 2019 at 7:42 pm #94373
Dejong bomb!! He ties it at 2 with his 11th homer. That’s 7 home runs and 10 doubles in 16 career games against the Mets. Solid.June 13, 2019 at 7:54 pm #94374
Flaherty can’t hold the lead as he gives up a double and a single. Bader bobbled the pickup or he might have had a shot at Alonso.June 13, 2019 at 7:58 pm #94375
Flaherty needs pulled here.June 13, 2019 at 8:02 pm #94376
Wheels come off for flaherty in the fifth. He doesn’t like keeping the leadJune 13, 2019 at 8:05 pm #94377
Well, Gallegos allowed a sac fly, but Bader made a nice play and they threw out the Met runner for a double play. 4-2 Mets.June 13, 2019 at 8:24 pm #94378
Gallegos is becoming one of the more reliable options out of the pen. A nice inning there for Giovanny.June 13, 2019 at 8:28 pm #94379
The Cards remind me of the old Clara Peller commercial on TV. She was the elderly lady that always said “WHERE’S THE BEEF?
So, Cardinals….WHERE’S THE OFFENSE?????

She’s there, Rat…..”bring them and she’ll come. How about our Birds show a little gumption and come back. When was the last time they came from behind in a thrilling fashion? 2016?June 13, 2019 at 8:46 pm #94381
Don’t look now, but after a bad start, Andrew Miller has arguably been the best reliever on the staff since the nightmare offense started. 11 IP, 2 ER and 17 Ks since May 1.June 13, 2019 at 8:48 pm #94382
Well, they were bringing out the tarp, but apparently decided not to. Everyone is probably anxious to move on from this dud.June 13, 2019 at 9:01 pm #94383
Well, Wong drives in Ozuna with a long drive off the LF wall. Up to Bader now.June 13, 2019 at 9:02 pm #94384
Now Bader drives in Wong with a double into the left field corner. LolJune 13, 2019 at 9:07 pm #94385
Now the tarps really are coming out. It worked a little in the Cards favor in the top of the 9th as they were able to tie it up. Thankfully Bader wasn’t hurt on that fall.June 13, 2019 at 9:32 pm #94388
THERE’s THE OFFENSE!
Schwarber hits the first pitch of the game from Kershaw over the CF wall. Then the Cubs plate another run. Its 2-0 after one in LA.
