.

Tough one getting there. Ten birds stranded on the bases (bases loaded twice) & three errors against a clawing, fighting Reds team. Everything we did they tried to do better. What a challenge! What a game! That’s always how it always is against this team. It’s like postseason play. . . .in August!
.
After tying a franchise record for plunks in consecutive games Saturday, JJ (Jon Jay) took another one for his team. The fifthteenth time. He’s the NL leader.  This time it was bottom of the ninth with the bases loaded. Can’t get much better than that. Nice job! What a guy that JJ! :) Does this remind you of another Cardinal that got hit often? Fernando Vina! Awww beautiful baseball memories!
.
Yup, this was necessary. Those Brewers just keep winning (been 5 consecutive). We gotta hold our place in the standings. We have no choice! We’ll take it!
.
Getting there was a dogfight. Relive it with me!
“This One’s For You!”Tuesday was broadcasted for the troops.
.
Our Cards are resilient. We want this and we’re playing like it! It’s the heart of this club that’s FUN! to watch.

Game on!

1 OF 3 CIN 5  STL 6

.
What a way to – end a homestand!. . .start a series!. . . .whatever! It all works. We picked up a game on the idle Brewers. The Cincinnati Reds came into town struggling, sputtering, but they seem to always play their best baseball in St. Louis – they look good up and down the lineup. Monday was just that. Everything we did, they tried to do better. It was a close game almost all night.
.
RHP Justin Masterson had innings in this one that looked strong and others where he didn’t. Thirty pitches to get through the fifth – 90 in all. Masterson later pinpointed the problem with ease — “My arm started dragging behind,” he explained — but now has to learn to rectify it more quickly.
.
Here’s the highlights in this one against our division rivals:
.
Good news! MattyHo (Holliday) broke his 0-fer-19 with a RBI-single. We need that bat!
This bat is always busy – Carp2 (Matt Carpenter) hit his 30th double of the season.  Sound familiar? He hit 55 last year and continues to make the pitchers work hard, taking 4.35 pitches in each plate appearance. What a guy! Okay, I’m partial to Carp2!
We outhit the Reds 13-8.
