2014 SERIES TALLY — WINS: 3 LOSSES: 1
CARDS TRAINERS WALK KELLY
OFF FIELD AFTER INJURY
MILWAUKEE — We lost. I don’t think we expected to go to Milwaukee and sweep these guys – they’re playing very good baseball (it would have been sweet). We took the series.
This we didn’t foresee — RHP Bazooka Joe Joe Kelly went down. Fifth inning – Kelly tried to bunt his way on and running to the bag injured his left hamstring. Big Ouch! Kelly had good stuff going for him too — three reliable pitches: slider, curveball and fastball for his third start this season.
“I definitely tweaked it, and it’s something I felt instantly,” said Kelly, who was walking with a limp after the game. “I called the trainer over and let him know and came out of the game. … I’ve been healthy my whole life. This is the first [injury]. It’s kind of shocking.”
Let’s look at good that happened in this series finale (there was a bit). Sixth inning – Alan Craig hit a solo homer (our only run of the game). The hit didn’t give us the W in Milwaukee but, now that his timing is clicking, we know the RBI Machine (Craig) will definately help us later. Great to see this happen for him/us.
More good stuff! In relief of Kelly, RHP Pat Neshek looked good in the ninth inning, striking out Carlos Gomez with the bases loaded.
Both good but not enough Wesnesday.
This game wasn’t some of our better work. Two errors (Adams in 3rd & Peralta in 5th) allowed the scoring — all runs Wednesday were unearned (one run was walked in). Good Brew Crew pitching had our number too. Their starter had a killer of a sinkerball. He got to our offense.
“Both [plays] ended up hurting us big,” Manager Mike. “We have to bring that good defense. We’ve got the kind of guys who can make the plays. In games like this where we’re not stacking up a bunch of runs, defensive plays can come back and bite you, and they did today.”
Off to the next leg of this long road trip — Washington DC for four.
