ST. LOUIS –One of the craziest finishes of the year! Confusion & controversy. Our Cards catch the ultimate break. Thank you……somebody! 

.
“I’m thinking, if there’s a hit, I’m just running as hard as I can,”  Matt Carpenter said he thought in the ninth inning.  Yadier got that hit and Carpenter (on first base with a BOB) scored the winning run in a mustwin match-up. Wowee!
.
The hit should have been called a ground-rule double (so Carpenter would just go from first to third & not score). After the game, MLB ruled that the play was not challenged in time (rule states within ten seconds in this case).  Advantage: STL! Messed up CIN spoiling plans.
.
Was it the right call? It was using baseball rules at the present time.  CIN Manager says crowd noise kept from hearing bullpen phone. Being at Busch plays to Cards advantage in this one. Instant replay rules are so new and really need to be tweaked.
.
Top of the ninth – Randal Grichuck miscue in center puts tying run in scoring position. Yikes! RHP Oh pitched around miscue but CIN eventually scored tying run in ninth.
.
RHP Alex Reyes was very good again.  He pitched well enough to get the win.
.
“He was so good, again, in a big situation (Matheny on Reyes),” Manager Mike said. “To see a kid with just a few starts under his belt to be able to stand up there and make great pitches when he has to and the heat is on is very impressive.”
.
STL PITCHERS OF RECORD: RHP REYES/LHP BOWMAN – 123 7TH/ LHP DUKE – ALLOWED RUN 8TH/LHP SIEGRIST 8TH/RHP OH 9TH.
.
Now we just put our nose down and get our work done.  Our Cards have the ability to get into the 2016 Playoffs. Just believe & concentrate! The Bucs come in town for the final series of the season. Go Cards!
.
“Pure excitement. Pure joy,” Cardinals outfielder Stephen Piscotty said of the ending. “That’s a huge hit from a legendary player. Just the way the crowd reacted, it was just something that was playful, and it was cool to have that moment.”

A NEWS RELEASE

  

cardinals.com  

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TICKETS FOR POTENTIAL TIEBREAKER GAME TO GO ON SALE FRIDAY SEPT. 30TH

Possible Tiebreaker Game Set for Monday, October 3 at Busch Stadium

 

ST. LOUIS, Mo., September 29, 2016 – In the event the Cardinals finish the 2016 regular season tied with either the New York Mets or San Francisco Giants for the second National League Wild Card spot, a tiebreaker game will be held at Busch Stadium on Monday, October 3.

Tiebreaker game tickets start at just $5 each and will go on sale Friday, September 30 at noon CT.  Tickets will be available atcardinals.com, via phone at 314.345.9000, and at the Busch Stadium ticket windows on 8th Street.

The winner of the tiebreaking game—which is considered a regular season game and not part of the MLB Postseason—will advance to the National League Wild Card Game on Wednesday, October 5.

Currently, game time is yet to be determined.  Gates will open one and a half hours prior to first pitch.  The game will be broadcast on ESPN, 1120 KMOX and on many of the Cardinals Radio Network affiliates.

The Cardinals will have home-field advantage for the tiebreaker against either team by virtue of their head-to-head record against the Giants (4-3) and, because the Cardinals split their season series against the Mets (3-3), their higher win percentage in intradivision games.

If played, this would be the second tiebreaker scenario in Cardinals history.  In 1946, the Cardinals and Brooklyn Dodgers finished with identical 96-58 records, setting up the first-ever best-of-three playoff series (which was used until divisional play in 1969).  The Cardinals won the tiebreaker series and eventually went on to win the 1946 World Series.  Monday’s potential game would be the first one-game tiebreaker in Cardinals franchise history.

TUES VS CIN. DIAZ HONORS HIS BUDDY

Image result for diaz honors fernandez tuesday

www.cardinals.com

..
ST. LOUIS – With a heavy heart, he did what he knew his childhood baseball pal would want him to do. Our Cards shortstop and the childhood friend of Jose Fernadez, “Played the game with joy.”  Boy did he!
.
 Aledmys Diaz suited up and went to work (first start after Fernandez’s tragic death Sunday). Diaz broke the game open with his first grand slam and gave us a lead that our Cards would call their own.
.
“I don’t know if there has been a spot all year where we needed that more than we did tonight,” Wainwright said of Diaz’s home run. “I felt some serious goose bumps when he hit that.”
.
The long ball was the theme of the game — again.  Five homers: Starting off with a solo shot by Carp2 (Matt Carpenter), the grand slam by Our Cuban Missile (Aledmys Diaz), a three-run shot courtesy of JP (Jhonny Peralta), Big City’s (Matt Adams) pinch-hit HR (Card’s 16th), and a one-run dinger by Ra-Ra Randal (Randal Grichuck). The homer, which has been so good to our club this season, accounted for 11 of our runs in  Tuesday’s mustwin game (remember  back when we just didn’t hit too many homers). Anyone? Anyone?
.
Who wrote this script anyway? Have an idea……it’s a hit! :)
.
 Our Cards “turned the page” after Monday’s 2-15 L lopsided fiasco of a game. Duh! You know what payback is! Five games remain in the 2016 season.  It’s not too late to turn this around and call it our own. Other teams in contention are battling their own injuries/challenges. STL has got this! No jinx! This NL Wild Card competition will go down to the last game, the last out Sunday.
.
“Watching him cross the plate and watching his reaction as he went through the guys really hit me in how much that meant to him and some of the load he’s carrying right now,” Manager Mike said. “You can never understand what each person is going through when they suffer a loss like that.”
.
“Hopefully this can help [the Fernandez family] feel better,” Diaz said. “Every time you’re here, you have to focus 100 percent on the game. It’s tough. He was like a brother to me. But I think I have to look at the way he played baseball and how he enjoyed every day he came to the park to compete. I think I look at life differently now.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TICKETS FOR POTENTIAL TIEBREAKER GAME TO GO ON SALE FRIDAY SEPT. 30TH

Possible Tiebreaker Game Set for Monday, October 3 at Busch Stadium

 

ST. LOUIS, Mo., September 29, 2016 – In the event the Cardinals finish the 2016 regular season tied with either the New York Mets or San Francisco Giants for the second National League Wild Card spot, a tiebreaker game will be held at Busch Stadium onMonday, October 3.

Tiebreaker game tickets start at just $5 each and will go on sale Friday, September 30 at noon CT.  Tickets will be available atcardinals.com, via phone at 314.345.9000, and at the Busch Stadium ticket windows on 8th Street.

The winner of the tiebreaking game—which is considered a regular season game and not part of the MLB Postseason—will advance to the National League Wild Card Game on Wednesday, October 5.

Currently, game time is yet to be determined.  Gates will open one and a half hours prior to first pitch.  The game will be broadcast on ESPN, 1120 KMOX and on many of the Cardinals Radio Network affiliates.

The Cardinals will have home-field advantage for the tiebreaker against either team by virtue of their head-to-head record against the Giants (4-3) and, because the Cardinals split their season series against the Mets (3-3), their higher win percentage in intradivision games.

If played, this would be the second tiebreaker scenario in Cardinals history.  In 1946, the Cardinals and Brooklyn Dodgers finished with identical 96-58 records, setting up the first-ever best-of-three playoff series (which was used until divisional play in 1969).  The Cardinals won the tiebreaker series and eventually went on to win the 1946 World Series.  Monday’s potential game would be the first one-game tiebreaker in Cardinals franchise history.

  NOW WE’RE TALKIN’ BASEBALL!

SUN @ CHI. RHP CARLOS MARTINEZ

REMEMBERING BOTH FRIENDS ON HIS CAP.

..
CHICAGO — Chicago was the last leg of our final road trip of 2016. Road: 48 – 33 (0.593). It’s why we’re contending for playoff play.
.
FRIDAY we lost 5-0. It was not a good day at the office. RHP Mike Leake didn’t have it and neither did our offense. CHI LHP Jake Arrietta  – we’ve beat him before, but he totally had our number in this one. SATURDAY we bounced back to get a 10-5 W. RHP Reyes was hot and so was our offense (soo good when those both work together like that!)
.
SUNDAY — ESPN Baseball for the World (KMOX John Rooney’s pet name). With a 6-3 Chicago record this season we knew anything was possible. 
.
Sunday Aledmys Diaz was given the night off to grieve for his childhood friend. Miami Marlin RHP Jose Fernandez, who grew up three houses down from Diaz in Cuba, was killed in a boating accident in Miami. God Bless! Carlos Martinez was also a Fernandez’s friend & drew circles on the pitcher’s mound in memory of both friends (Martinez w/ cap in pic above). 
.
RHP Carlos Martinez pitched Sunday and was fantastic. Martinez was just outdueled by CHI LHP Jon Lester (Sunday was win #18 for Cy Young contender). Diaz was getting ready to pinch-hit in the ninth, but was not needed.
.
“I think he’s the kind of kid; he’s emotional,” Manager Mike said of his RHP. “He’s able to figure out how to harness those extremely well. We saw that a good portion of the year last year with what he was going through with [the passing of teammate] Oscar [Taveras]. I think he’s just a kid who wears his emotions on his sleeve, and today was a tough day. He wanted to go out and do something special, and I believe he did.”
.
Our Cards have had an “up and down season” as Yadi described it in his pregame interview. This Sunday night game fit right into that description.We had moments that looked great in the game and then turned around with an equally bad one (Can’t win games w/play like that).We have played a dismal 0-46 with runner’s in scoring position. Not pretty, guys! That continued Sunday. Seven Birds remained on the basepads, many in scoring position. Hence, the 3-1 loss.
.
“We have a number of guys going through their own struggles right now,” said Brandon Moss, now 5-for-66 in September after another hitless night. “It’s not the greatest time to be going through it. If you’re judging by today, it’s hard to because [Lester] threw a great game. When you don’t get many pitches to hit, you have to go out there and battle.”
.
MLB is already playing games in the playoff mode.  You can see it on the guy’s faces, in their play and the huge excitement in fans.
.
Our next seven games are mustwin match-ups.  We really need a seven-game winning streak to end the season.  Yeah, that might not be realistic (we are eight games under .500 at home this year), but we need to be optimistic right now. We know it CAN happen. We’ve seen it from STL before. Do your best and good luck!
.
We have a week! The last day of the regular season is next Sunday. This time next week, baseball will be finalized and postseason play set up. You know what to do, guys! Play tough!
.

9/26/16 STL POSTSEASON UPDATE — After Sunday’s loss we moved into third in the Wild Card Race. Seven games of the regular season left. You heard the slogan, “Every game counts.” Well, it really does!

TIME 4 BASEBALL TRIVIA!

WTF? DID YOU KNOW.

*TALKIN’ ST LOUIS POST DISPATCH’S RICK HUMMEL, AKA”THE COMMISH.” KMOX TALKED TO HUMMEL ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON ABOUT OUR CARDS. SOME OF HUMMEL’S DISCUSSION INCLUDED:

1)IF WE DON’T WIN AT HOME IN THIS UPCOMING SERIES, STL WILL NOT GET INTO THE 2016 PLAYOFFS. PRESSURE IS ON, GUYS!

2)LHP JAIME GARCIA – GARCIA LOOKS GREAT AFTER HIS BREAK FROM THE ROTATION. POSSIBLY JUST NEEDED TO REST HIS ARM. HE MAY GO INTO THE ROTATION IN THE LAST WEEK OF THE SEASON.

3) RANDAL GRICHUCK IS PLAYING LIKE HE COULD BE A SUPERSTAR IN THE MAKING.  NOT SURE IF CENTER FIELD WILL BE HIS PLACE. COULD MOVE INTO LEFT.

*RHP LANCE LYNN/LANCER! –   LYNN SAYS WHEN HE”LISTENS TO HIS BODY” REHAB GOES FINE. PLAN ARE TO START A THROWING PROGRAM IN DECEMBER TO GET READY FOR THE NEW SEASON, HE WILL BE IN THE ROTATION.  RIGHT NOW IS BREAK TIME, HE’S RESTING!
