The pride of Plant High with the bomb to sink his hometown team.Gator Pete for the win!
Aaaand the Cards have added 7 insurance runs here, up 16-8 now. It's the 3rd half-inning of the game with 5+ runs scored.Currently 9-8 STL in the bottom of the 8th.
Now 16-8 Cards after bombs by Mr. Quick Step Contreras and Gorman. The Cards are now playing up to their talent.This Dodgers/Cards game is pretty entertaining. LA jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the first, then STL scored 6 in the 3rd on the back of four home runs, including 3 in a row by Yepez/Gorman/DeJong. Then in the 6th Freddie Freeman hit his 300th career HR, a grand slam on which the pitcher did the ol' point up in the air like it's a pop-up move:
Currently 9-8 STL in the bottom of the 8th.
Beat me to it, but the point is this is another team we caught at the wrong time. They're 9-2 over the last 11 games.Aaaand the Cards have added 7 insurance runs here, up 16-8 now. It's the 3rd half-inning of the game with 5+ runs scored.
Yup. Switch the Cards and Bucs series and they go maybe 4-2 instead of 0-6.Beat me to it, but the point is this is another team we caught at the wrong time.
I have faith at some point that luck is going to change and we're going to be able to take advantage of some good teams when they're struggling. (Hopefully that will be the case the next time we see the Rays.)Yup. Switch the Cards and Bucs series and they go maybe 4-2 instead of 0-6.
Look at those names! This is among the reasons why I love baseball.View: https://twitter.com/dgoold/status/1659391085272088577?s=46
The last time the #stlcards hit seven home runs in a home game it was also against the Dodgers.
The Brooklyn Dodgers.
here is that 1940’s lineup.

5-7 in non-Sox games though!Toronto ended up blowing a 5-2 lead in the 8th and losing in extras.
Blue Jays are 5-11 in the division.

The Mets announcers said the run they just scored was the first time they have scored first in 14 games, that is fucking crazy.Not exactly a base running clinic at Citi Field today... Josh Bell had your basic single to right field but for some reason thought he could make it a double... instead, he was thrown out by so much that he was tagged out trying to retreat to first. He was quickly outdone in the bottom of the inning when Starling Marte decided to wait until he had taken his lead off first base to look down to strap up his sliding mitt... he didn't even see the throw that picked him off.
Boom! Jose Ramirez with a 2-run HR off Robertson in the 8th gives Cleveland a 4-3 lead.As if Cleveland's lineup doesn't suck enough all on its own, the Mets will be doing something today that's never happened in the history of baseball – starting both ends of a doubleheader with a 3-time Cy Young winner.
The two views they kept showing on ESPN were completely inconclusive because of Naylor blocking it.Starling Marte comes in as a pinch-runner in this one (puts his sliding mitt on before stepping off first this time)... and he still gets picked off but the umpire blew the call and they don't overturn it on replay. I'm not sure how there was no view from the outfield side of first which should have been clear. Naylor's foot partially blocked the view from the home plate angle, but it was pretty clear that Marte's hand hadn't gotten past his foot to the bag by the time the tag was applied... and of course, Marte scores the go-ahead run a couple of minutes later. If the Guardians don't screw themselves, the umpires will. This weekend has to be rock bottom.
Or BAL could be in first by the end of the week if the Tampa pen keeps serving up meatballs.Toronto is in the middle of a 17 game stretch with no off days vs Atl, NY, Bal, TB and Minn. Things might get worse for them down at the Trop before they get better.
Toronto wins 20-1 today vs Tampa, admittedly with the last 8 or 9 vs a couple of position players...Or BAL could be in first by the end of the week if the Tampa pen keeps serving up meatballs.
Need help from the YankeesToronto wins 20-1 today vs Tampa, admittedly with the last 8 or 9 vs a couple of position players...
