NOW TALKIN’ BASEBALL W/MARY!

NEW YORK — Yes, ANOTHER frustrating loss. Ls are always frustrating, but walk-off road losses are at the top of the list. We split that series. Thursday was our THIRD walk-off loss this road trip. Huge Ouch! That’s enough, isn’t it?

Eighth Inning – LHP Bret Cecil, who has been tough as of late, allowed a homer to tie the game @ two. Put an end to Redbirds’ Bullpen scoreless innings against NYM (15 2/3 innings).

Ninth Inning – RHP Trevor Rosenthal faced the heart of the order, put NYM on base (90 ft. away) and then allowed a “sneaky” walk-off infield single by Jose Reyes (who had been wearing the O-fer collar).  

WOW! Tommy Pham – Mr Phamtastic’s hot bat gave us hope — for a short bit. Pham’s eighth-inning homer gave us a one-run lead – that we couldn’t hold onto. Thursday he went two-for-four with a RBI-double and that solo shot. When we think of Tommy Pham, we can smile!

The back-end of our Bullpen needs some major freshening up. Everybody knows it. Most of all, us.

RHP Lance Lynn had a good day. He held up his half of a pitcher’s dual. A quality start.

LYNN #S: 7 IP, 104 PITCHES/67 FOR STRIKES, K5, BB1, THREE HITS, ONE RUN

We split this NYM series. Now, we’re off to Chicago to finish the road trip that is at 3-3 thus far.

Cheer up! Be the team that goes to work expecting to win — it will help against those Cubbies.  You know. . . .a happy Redbird team plays much, much better baseball! 🙂 Play that awesome baseball we know you can do.

Put an end to Chicago’s winning streak. You can!

TALKIN’ BASEBALL TRIVIA –

MLB LINEUP CARD
Detroit Tigers Miguel Cabrera Triple Crown Line-up card
 .
Baseball superstitions are everywhere!!
 .
Managers are superstitious about who takes out the Lineup Card before the game starts. Did the team end up winning or lose? Probably makes a difference if they take it out again.
Ricky Horton, “I only took the Lineup Card once and we lost.  I was never asked to do it again!” lol Ricky’s so FUN!ny!!
