St. Louis Cardinals at Cincinnati Reds, Game 137 Thread


After a  rough time against the Pirates (which I posit is an entirely psychological problem), the Cardinals have the good fortune of taking on the Reds for the next four games. They took 2 of 3 from them just a few days ago, and they’ve handled them well this season as a whole. Hopefully they can take 3 of 4 games before they have to take on Pittsburgh again.

Today, Adam Wainwright gets a shot at redemption. After giving up 9 runs in just 2 innings during his last outing against the Reds, he needs a good outing. Hopefully he’ll return to form and dominate today.

His counterpart, Matt Latos, gave up 4 runs to the Cardinals in his last outing, so if Waino can fend the Reds offense, the Cardinals ought to be able to turn it into a win.

As the Cardinals near the middle of this crucial stretch, they need to continue their domination of the Reds in order to stay in contention. Hopefully we’ll see them pull out a win today!

Let’s go Cardinals! Leave your comments below!

  • Ovadia

    Dangit Waino, pitch better.

  • Ovadia

    How have I missed the growth near Carlos’ right ear . . . strange.

  • Ovadia

    Another scoreless half inning for Latos.

  • Ovadia

    And another run for the Reds. Wainwright still doesn’t look like himself.

  • Ovadia

    And did Choo ever get a hold of that one . . . wow. That was gone off the bat.

  • Ovadia

    4-0 Cincinnati.

  • Ovadia

    Out of the inning. I want the old Wainwright back.

  • Ovadia

    There we go! At least he can hit when he can’t pitch.

  • Ovadia

    Another double and a run! Let’s go Cardinals!!! Rip this game open!!!

  • Ovadia

    And a sac fly for Holliday. 4-2 Reds, but at least it’s closer.

  • Ovadia

    And here we go into the 3rd, now Waino needs to calm down and keep the Cards’ offense in this!

  • Ovadia

    Extra bases for Bruce . . . lead off double.

  • Ovadia

    Even Jay can hold a runner at that distance.

  • Ovadia

    Freaking Freese.

  • Ovadia

    You know what I like about this job? I can drink (not heavily) while I work. Now let’s go Wainwright.

  • Ovadia

    5-2 Reds. Still only one out.

  • Ovadia

    Well, at least Carp got another out.

  • Riley

    Boy are we in trouble with Wainwright pitching this way again

  • Ovadia

    At least he’s number two on the all-time strikeout list, right? Oh wait . . . no one cares if he can’t win games.

  • Ovadia

    He definitely needs to shape up, hopefully he’ll figure it out for good next time.

  • Ovadia

    Alright, now for three more runs. Let’s make this a game!

  • Ovadia

    Popped up.

  • Ovadia

    1-2-3 inning. Let’s try this pitching thing again now.

  • Ovadia

    And Choo goes down.

  • Ovadia

    2 down.

  • Ovadia

    Almost 1-2-3, except for that home run there.

  • Ovadia

    Another double, Waino does not look good. They need to get him out.

  • Ovadia

    Finally out of that inning. Rough day to be a Cardinal fan.

  • Ovadia

    Ugliness. That was fair?

  • Ovadia

    On to the bottom of the fifth.

  • Ovadia

    Riley, I can’t tell you happy it makes me to know that you stop by and read my mad ramblings to myself. :)

  • Ovadia

    Johnson is in to catch . . . why?

  • Ovadia

    The Reds have scored in every inning thus far.

  • Riley

    Oh I’m here, just trying to figure out why Matheny is leaving Waino in while he’s struggling.

    • Ovadia

      Haha, yeah. I don’t know. There is something wrong with him somewhere, and he needs to figure it out before he gets on a mound again.

  • Ovadia

    No 1-2-3 inning this time.

  • Ovadia

    And the Reds don’t get a run for the first time in this game.

  • Ovadia

    Here we go Jay!

  • Ovadia

    Holliday gets a hit!

  • Ovadia

    Almost got something going. Almost.

  • Ovadia

    Waino back out for the 6th.

    And hello Kolten Wong!

    Let’s go Kolten!
