Game 144: Cubs @ Cardinals, 9/13/16, 7:15 pm CT

Postby chevyman58 » Tue Sep 13, 2016 3:30 pm

Jason Hammel, RH, 14-8, 3.50 vs Jaime Garcia, 10-12, 4.58

Hammel is only 5-7 with a 5.26 ERA on the road but 2 of those Wins have come in St. Louis.

Garcia has lost 4 straight starts & has an 8.06 ERA (!!!) over his last 5. :shock:

Hopefully Aledmys Diaz is ready to start & can get into tonight's lineup.

I have this little tiny nightmare trapped in the back of my head that these guys may just blow us off the field.

My God ......... Garcia hasn't been remotely competitive for 5 starts now. Just has nothin'.

I think ya gotta banish him to the Shelby Miller chair in the pen & the let him walk. Nice knowin' ya Jaime, good luck down the road.

I firmly believe that Garcia's just running into the innings wall. He's almost thrown as many innings this year as he has the past two seasons. I think he'll be much better at this point next year, but I think you gotta think about parking him.

At least Matheny was ready with the quick hook.

HUGE Win

Diaz immediate impact, Moss off the schnide.

But .............. all our runs off the long ball yet again.

MMMMOY AWARD:

Mike Matheny Management Moment Of Year pulling Garcia at 1-2/3 only down 2-0. Fantastic, aggressive move.

Reyes (2-1), Matt Bowman and Kevin Siegrist retired 16 of the final 18 men they faced, Siegrist notching his second save with a 1-2-3 ninth inning.

Reyes issued six walks in his 4 1/3 innings, but gave up only one hit and fanned four.

After Nats rally to tie, Mets win it in 10th

Cards rally vs. Cubs to stay right on Mets' heels

Down by 3, Padres' 5-run 9th stuns Giants. The Padres have now won their last five contests against San Francisco, after losing 9 straight.

Giants +0.5
Mets ------
Cards -0.5
