More problems with RISP and LOBs

On Friday, the Cardinals were 0-for-3  with seven runners left on base. Nolan Arenado and Paul Goldschmidt each had two hits. Nolan Gorman and Dylan Carlson had one hit each. Carlson also struck out twice.

On Saturday, the Cardinals were 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position and left six runners on base. The Cardinals only got two hits on the afternoon, one from Andrew Knizner and Lars Nootbaar. The lineup struck out seven times.

While the Cardinals did win Sunday, it could have been by a larger margin. The Cardinals were 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position. The Cardinals left ten runners on base. Goodness. It’s terrible to see such a talented team have these bad moments on what’s become a regular basis of late.
