ATLANTA — SUNTRUST PARK-25,195     86 degrees, sunny

IT’S TIME FOR OUR “A” GAME. . .EVERY GAME.

The finale of this series was not that. FINAL SCORE: ATL 7-3

Hotlanta Wednesday was a getaway day. Rookie pitcher’s dual:  STL RHP Jack Flagherty vs ATL RHP Youki Toussaint. 

Flaherty started out very sharp, but our Baby Bird just kinda fell apart (sorry, Jack, but you know. . .) in his 29th start for our Redbirds. He allowed a season-high five runs. Back on the STL front,  ATL RHP Toussaint dominated our offense for IP:5.2. ATL Bullpen was good too. 

Nine games remain. PLAIN & SIMPLE: WE HAVE TO WIN!

Turn the page! Friday we begin a three-game series vs SF at our Baseball Heaven. RHP John Gant will take the ball in Game One. Faces LHP Madison Bumgarner, but we CAN beat him. He’s 6-6. First pitch: 7:15 pm CDT.

Go Cards! Cardinals Nation is right here with you! Good time for another hot streak!

Four-game losing streak followed with three consecutive wins:

“Obviously, it was a tough weekend at home, not what we were looking forward to,” starter Austin Gomber said. “We’re still in it. We still think we can win the division. And we’re just going out every night trying to win games.”

ATLANTA — SUNTRUST PARK- 28,083      85 degrees, clear

September baseball in the race for a playoff berth, every game down the stretch is like a playoff game.  We have been fortunate and played well in the second half. No team in baseball has had more wins than STL since the All-Star Game. Woo hoo, guys! Working hard and not giving up has brought us a long way. In June, who thought that we’d be playing like this?

Whodathunk? WOW! NL WC hold – staying strong! Keep eating salsa — everybody!

We win and things just seem to fall into place for us in our Postseason journey. Only ten games left in the regular season. It’s almost hard to believe, that we’ve gone through 152 games.

Eight straight wins in ATL! Tuesday was another well-played game in Hotlanta. Won the series and Wednesday we go for the sweep, don’t we? no jinx It’s payback time. The Braves came out to STL and swept us in June. Cardinals Nation is in Hotlanta, supporting their Birds. Ten rows of rabid Cards fans can make a lot of noise!

Offense was clicking scoring late in the game was key to our FINAL SCORE: STL 8-1 W. Six of our runs were scored in the eighth and ninth innings!

Wednesday is the finale of this short 3-game series. It’s a getaway day, so first pitch is early: 11:10 am CDT. 

Baby Bird pitching continues to shine as RHP Jack Flaherty starts for us (Flaherty has been in the talks for NL ROY). We’re so proud!

STL final homestand is next; 6 games in Baseball Heaven: 3/SF & 3/MIL.

Go Cards! Surprise baseball and do this the Cardinals way! Cardinals Nation is behind you (always) cheering you on!
