Mariners at Cardinals, Game 147 Thread


Welcome to tonight’s game thread!

Tonight, the rarely seen Seattle Mariners come into town to take on the Cardinals! It should be a good series, and the M’s should be bad enough for the Cardinals to steam roll. So let’s take a look, shall we?

Adam Wainwright takes on Hisashi Iwakuma. With a 12-6 record and a 2.97 ERA, Iwakuma will be the biggest challenge that the Cardinals have in terms of pitching. He is certainly a formidable opponent, but bolstered by the bat of Yadier Molina (hooray! he’s back!), St. Louis have a good chance of taking him on.

Wainwright, after two very rough outings against the Reds, turned himself around against Pittsburgh in his last start, throwing 7 shutout innings and striking out 8. He seeks to continue his dominance against the Mariners, who have one of the worst offenses in all of baseball.

With the Pirates currently down 1-0 to the Cubs, hopefully the Cardinals can take this golden opportunity to retake sole possession of the lead in the NL Central. Either way, we’re set for another exciting series here in September!

Here we go Cardinals!

    Welcome to tonights’ game thread! Let’s go Cardinals and Wainwright!

  • Ovadia

    Cubs up 3-0 in the fourth.

  • Ovadia

    A little farther than I’d like, but it’s an out.

  • Ovadia

    Two down. I like the Mariners.

  • Ovadia

    Nine pitches, three outs. Way to be Waino.

  • Ovadia

    3-2 after Alvarez’s in-side the park home run.

  • Ovadia

    Almost a base hit.

  • Ovadia

    And Jay misses there, too. Come on Holliday.

  • Ovadia

    Tie game in Pittsburgh.

  • Ovadia

    And Holliday gets a walk. Now let’s see Beltran do something.

  • Ovadia

    And, end of the inning. On to the second.

  • Ovadia

    And there’s a nice snag from Jay! Two down.

  • Ovadia

    Two innings, no hits, one walk. Not bad so far. Let’s keep it up. He’s been pretty efficient, too.

  • Ovadia

    Come on Matt Adams.

  • Ovadia

    Our team is so slow. It’s sort of annoying on plays like that.

  • Ovadia

    And there’s Waino’s first strike out. The 1200th K for the Ms this year.

  • Ovadia

    And there’s another for Waino! Nine outs, one walk, two Ks, 37 pitches. Keep it up, Wainwright.

  • Ovadia

    I think Waino hit it harder than Descalso.

  • Ovadia

    Yeah, MATT! Another Double.

  • Ovadia

    Good rip by Jay, let’s drive him in now.

  • Ovadia

    This has been a very good at bat from Jay. Now get the job done. Or walk.

  • Ovadia

    Just foul. Almost a run for the Cards.

  • Ovadia

    Bounced to first and out of the inning. Nonetheless, Carp showed that this guy is hittable.

  • Ovadia

    Another out.

  • Ovadia

    And the M’s get a hit.

  • Ovadia

    Back to back singles here in the fourth.

  • Ovadia

    The home plate ump (Jordan Baker) is freaking HUGE. 6’7″ Just noticed that he dwarfs all the other batters.

  • Ovadia

    And there’s another K for Waino. 3 on the night.

  • Ovadia

    And Waino out of a jam. Now let’s get our own offense started.

  • Ovadia

    Almonte just barely made that one. I think he almost lost it for slowing up there.

  • Ovadia

    And ‘tran is on with a walk. Now let’s go Yadier.

  • Ovadia

    Let’s go Adams. Two run lead. Right here, right now.

  • Ovadia

    Yadi pops it up. Two down.

  • Ovadia

    And down. Here we go, Waino.

  • Ovadia

    And Waino gives up a HR. 1-0 M’s. I do not like this at all.

  • Ovadia

    Waino has gone from lights out to struggling in just two innings. He needs to calm down.

  • Ovadia

    Cubs have a lead!

  • Ovadia

    Waino rings him up. One more and Waino’s at 200 on the season.

  • Ovadia

    Waino needs one more to get out of the inning.

  • Ovadia

    There we go MATT CARPENTER! BEAST!!!

  • Ovadia

    David Freese gets a single!

  • Ovadia

    Let’s go Matt!

  • Ovadia

    Cards are making good contact, but aren’t hitting the gaps. We need to get a hit here.

  • Ovadia

    Six innings over, three to go.

  • Ovadia

    ANOTHER PLAY! WOW!!!

  • Ovadia

    Let’s go Beltran.

  • Ovadia

    Beltran in with a double! A runner in scoring position with no outs! Two fly balls, and we’re tied up!

  • Ovadia

    Let’s go YADI!!!

  • Ovadia

    Wow was that close. Way to be Beltran to get back. Rough one.

  • Ovadia

    Come on Matt Adams!
