DENVER  — The Memorial Day holiday will be remembered all weekend.  Camouflage everywhere. Uniforms, socks, shoes, caps. No Cardinal Red or Rockies purple. Couldn’t really tell who was up-to-bat – okay, kinda. They will proudly wear this garb, to honor those who served. 

RHP Adam Wainwright was, well Waino. Vintage Wainwright once more. He was terrific – silenced that powerful ROX line-up like he has done so many times before. Evened the series in his best outing of the year (so far, right Waino?). Our veteran righty worked quickly, efficiently, confidently. Kd six, allowed three hits, zero runs. Seven innings of shutout baseball. Makes him 10-0 against COL with a 1.56 ERA. Waino’s World! led us to a 3-0 victory. Humble man. . .

“If I’m doing things like I want to do, it’s very hard for them to know what’s coming, where it’s going to be, what speed it’s going to be,” Wainwright said. “Maybe it’s the same pitch they’re thinking, but maybe it’s a different speed than they think it’s going to be. I like pitching like that.”

COL Gonzalez on Wainwright —

“He knows what he’s doing up there. He’s smart. That’s why he’s still in the game. He knows how to pitch. I feel like he’s not afraid to pitch here. He’s done it not just tonight; a couple times. He’s a good pitcher.”  

RHP Trevor Rosenthal took over with his 100+ mph pitches and a curveball that drops to 60 mph. Whoa! Rosie escaped a jam in the eighth inning  (two walks & Gyorko fielding error). Powerful stuff that’s FUN! to watch!

RHP Oh shut the door tight to earn his 11th save!

Offense was back too and supported their pitcher. Offense supports Wainwright, Leake, Lynn and then Martinez so far this season in that order. KMOX’s Ricky Horton called what our line-up is experiencing a “funk.”  Horton, “They’ve been in a bit of a funk.” Funk is the new word for slump. It’s kinder, gentler. Tommy Pham is not kind & that’s okay! Fifth homer of this young season (you know what’s next – love to get to say that). Mr. Phamtastic hit the first pitch 426 feet. Nice work, dude!

Yadi! Yadi! Yadi! Yadi! A big night for Molina too as he extended his Majors-leading hit streak to 16 games. Getting close to Ted Simmoms’ ’73 record for longest streak by a Cards’ catcher (three games away). You go!

CARDS UP NEXT – ON THE ROAD AGAIN/STILL! Conclude COL/3. RHP Lance Lynn will take the ball for our Redbirds. Just last week, he was able to hold his own against LAD Clayton Kershaw. Lynn is 2-1 with a 2.30 against the Rockies in his career & 1.77 ERA at Coors Field. On Lancer!

After our west coast road trip, it’s BACK-TO-BUSCH (5/29/17) short Four-Game homestand vs LAD. Memorial Day Series.

THEN, ON THE ROAD AGAIN! @ CHC/3 (6/2/17), @ CIN/4 (6/5/17)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CARDS PURCHASE RHP JOHN BREBBIA FROM MEMPHIS;

MIGUEL SOCOLOVICH DESIGNATED FOR ASSIGNMENT

 

DENVER, CO., May 27, 2017 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to tonight’s game in Denver that they have purchased right-handed pitcherJohn Brebbia from Memphis (AAA) and designated right-handed pitcher Miguel Socolovich for assignment.   Brebbia (pronounced Breh-be-ah), who will be making his Major League debut, has been assigned uniform no. 60.

Brebbia, who turns 27 next week, was selected by the Cardinals from the Arizona Diamondbacks in the Triple-A phase of the Rule V draft on December 10, 2015 and he split the 2016 season between Springfield (AA) and Memphis (AAA).

The 6-2, 205-pound reliever was 1-1 with three saves and a 1.69 ERA (26.2 IP) in 15 games (one start) for Memphis, striking out 29 and walking just five.  He’s not allowed a run in his past nine appearances dating to April 25, striking out 19 in 15.0 IP with just three hits allowed.

Brebbia, whose career mark in the minors stands at 9-13 with eight saves and a 3.67 ERA in 126 games, made his lone professional start on April 21 at Colorado Springs (3.0 IP, 2 ER)..

Socolovich, 30, who has spent parts of the past three seasons with St. Louis, was 0-1 with one save in his 15 appearances with the Cardinals this season, striking out 14 in 18.2 innings of work.
