St. Louis Cardinals Game 31 – My Take


On throwback day in Milwaukee, both teams were wearing uniforms from 2013. And all weekend long the Cards showed the Brewers a throwback themselves, circa 2004, when the Cards ran all over the Central Division. All weekend long the Cards pounded the Brewers into submission and today was no different. Marco Estrada couldn’t find the plate and the Cards pounced on him for eight runs, including another Matt Holliday moon shot.It started in the third when Estrada walked two guys home before Allen Craig laced a double down the line to clear the bases. Yadi made it 6-0 with and rbi single. Two innings later Holliday hit his bomb and the Cards were up 8-0. They added two more runs later, Allen Craig had an rbi triple and back up catcher Tony Cruz had an rbi single for a final of 10-1. The scary thing is they could have scared at least five more.

Jaime Garcia continued the stretch of great starting pitching by going eight strong innings. Carlos “Baby Pedro” Martinez pitched a perfect ninth and was rewarded with his first major league strike out. He kept hitting “99” on the radar gun. The Cards now have the best record in the NL and are starting to put away the rest of the division. I only hope that they don’t come out flat against the Cubs. Right now everything is coming together. They’re hitting consistently and the bullpen has been much better the last few games. Hopefully the starting pitching keeps doing it’s job. I’m seeing the makings of a very dominate team. 

After a day off tomorrow, the Cards go to Chicago for three against the Cubbies! Lance Lynn is looking to go 6-0.
