Game 28: Phillies @ Cardinals, 5/4/2016, 7:15 pm CT

Postby R27 » Wed May 04, 2016 12:50 pm

Mike Leake (0-3, 5.83 ERA) is still hunting for his first win with St. Louis and will take on the Phillies' Adam Morgan (0-0, 5.40 ERA) tonight.

SS Aledmys Diaz
RF Stephen Piscotty
LF Matt Holliday
CF Randal Grichuk
1B Yadier Molina
2B Jedd Gyorko
3B Ruben Tejada
C Eric Fryer
RHP Mike Leake

Carpenter takes a break and Diaz gets the chance to lead off.

And Molina will play first.

Interesting lineup.

Leake looking good thru 3. Molina having fun @ 1B. Diaz with an incredible play from deep in the hole to end the top of the 2nd. Still looking for some some offense.... 8-)

Ryan Howard with a 3 run shot. The big inning hits Leake again. Another day....another comeback needed.

Phil's up 3-0.... :roll:

Adams was inches shy of the walk off home run. Double off the top of the wall. Crazy stuff.

This is the first time this year I've seen the Cardinals put together the hits when they needed them. If they could figure out how to do this, the team will go far regardless of how good their offense is. Just as the 2010, 2012, and 2014 Giants. None known for their offensive prowess, but managed to get the job done when they needed to.

We've been dethroned as the number one offense. We now trail the Cubs. Some interesting stats to go with that. The Cubs have the same amount of runs as we do, but our obp isn't as high as theirs. We have more double, triples and several more home runs, yet they get on base more. They have fewer strike outs, yet several more walks. Tells me, they're either more disciplined at the plate, or opposing pitcher respect their hitters more.
