   NOW WE’RE TALKIN’ BASEBALL!

8/23/16 @ STL. GARCIA BAD NIGHT. LO SIENTO :(

www.cardinals.com.
.
ST. LOUIS — TUESDAY PITCHERS OF RECORD: LHP GARCIA/RHP REYES 567/ LHP DUKE 78/RHP TUIVAHALA 9
.
We’re back home and LHP Jaime Garcia struggled. Ay, caramba!
.
That just adds to the oddities we have experienced this season — struggling @ home, leading  NL in homers (no complaints there), leading NL in road wins (again, good) and now Garcia can’t get it together @ home.  He’s been so good at Busch.  WE’VE been so good at Busch.  Not this season. This L makes us 28-34 @ home. 
.
“Today was just an overall struggle,” said Garcia, who tied his season high with six runs allowed. “I wasn’t able to keep the ball down. I wasn’t able to get ahead in the count. It was one of those days where I was battling down there and didn’t have a good feeling.”
.
It wasn’t just Garcia on the mound, it was our club too. The seventh inning, bases loaded and we didn’t score. There’s more! The Mets messed up a couple of their double plays too. We didn’t capitalize on their miscues. Well? Stranded a huge amount of Cards on base — eleven or more. . . . A lot.  Well? We don’t win ballgames doing that! 
.
“It’s not like we had ugly play; it was just a rough start,” said Manager Mike, whose club fell to 28-34 at home. “If we’re kicking balls all over the place, not making plays, that’s one thing. That’s the kind of baseball we haven’t seen here lately. But you’re going to have those days where you have those starts where you have to try and pick your starter up.”
.
It’s time for that hot streak at home! Think? Tonight we’ve got RHP Carlos Martinez on the mound. Good luck. These guys are pond scum! Remember?
.
We know you can get it together, guys.  No, it’s more like Cardinal karma. We have faith!
