3B Matt Carpenter
RF Stephen Piscotty
LF Matt Holliday
1B Brandon Moss
C Yadier Molina
2B Kolten Wong
SS Jedd Gyorko
CF Jeremy Hazelbaker
RHP Mike Leake

Molina will surpass Ted Simmons for the most starts at catcher in Cardinals' history with the start tonight.

And Jeremy Hazelbaker gets the nod tonight with Grichuk getting the night off. That seems a little odd to me the way Grichuk handled right handed pitching last year. Would have given him a shot to get right.

The powerful Cardinal offense has 1 hit through 5....a bloop single to CF by Wong. Nicasio has K'd 5 and retired his last 10 in a row....just sayin'.... 8-)

Matheny pulls the hook. Lyons out of the 'pen. Garcia in at shortstop. Got that double switch magic going.

Hazelbaker gets his first Major League home run to lead off the 6th inning!

This team has been pretty sloppy so far this season. Maybe it's time to actually work during spring training instead of "resting up" for the season?

Random thought. I wonder if tonight's game was the record for the lowest total of starting pitcher's numbers. Leake wears the #8, Nicasio wears the #12. So 20. Has to be close, if nothing else.

This may be exactly the type of topics we'll need this season to have something compelling to talk about. No signs of life.

What's the record for K's by an offense thru 3 games? We're nearing 40. We may shatter last year's record season total.

They talked about the record for strikeouts in a 3 game series. I don't think the Cardinals got there, but they were within shouting distance.

And the offense could be worse. The Padres are currently 7-for-71 this season. Batting under .100 as a team, now in the 4th inning tonight.

I believe JJay has 3 of those hits, 1-fer-4 in each of their 3 games, .250 from the leadoff spot.
