Cardinals at Rockies, Game 151 Thread

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to tonight’s game thread!

After a tough loss last night, the Cardinals remain tied for first place in the NL Central. St. Louis just can’t seem to pull away. That said, any cushion at all would be nice, so we’re hoping for a win tonight!

For the Rockies, Juan Nicasio takes the mound. He has an uninspiring 8-7 record with a 4.58 ERA. That said, in his one career start against the Cards, he pitched 7 shut out innings for a win. It would be good if that didn’t happen again.

St. Louis has Joe Kelly going tonight, and he’s looking to get back on track after a game in which he only went 5 innings and gave up 4 runs (3 earned). Although most of his starting performances have been stellar, he’d like to forget about that last start and move on. Tonight is his chance to do so.

If he’s able to keep the always dangerous Troy Tulowitzki under control, he may have a good chance. Hopefully the Cardinals can jump out to an early lead and give him a cushion — help him get comfortable.

We ought to be in for a good game! Let’s go Cardinals!!!

        And SD is doing well in Pitt. Yea!

        • Ovadia

  • Ovadia

    Yadi doubles in a run! And I missed it thanks to MLB TV.

    • Mike King

      I thought it was gone at first. Then close play at second as it came off wall hard.

      • Ovadia

        That’s what the replay looked like.

  • Ovadia

    Even Adams can do it!

    • Mike King

    Matty Mo!

    • Mike King

      Flashing leather!

  • Ovadia

    Sorry, minor crisis.

    • Mike King

      no worries

      • Ovadia

        “Losing” the title of the car that you’re trying to sell always gives me warm and fuzzy feelings.

  • Ovadia

    Holliday again! My goodness gracious! If he can triple, he can complete the cycle.

  • Mike King

    What the hell just happened?

    • Ovadia

      I dunno. Kelly looks ok now, though.

  • Ovadia

    I hope Kelly’s ok. We need him around.

    • Mike King

      I think it is preventative. Otherwise they don’t let him finish the inning.

      • Ovadia

        Which is fine by me with a 10 run lead.

  • Ovadia

    Alright. Whoo. Back. Life looks good to the Cardinals.

  • Ovadia

    Ball four, load ‘em up! Let’s go Yadier!

  • Ovadia

    Robbery! Dang. Oh well. Still 10-0.

  • Ovadia

    I’ve got a big day tomorrow, so I think Imma call it a night. Have a great one. I hope it ends well. Go Cards!

    • Mike King

      Go to bed with a smile on the face. Welcome to solo first.
