rootin’ on our Cards! Woo hoo!
THURSDAY @ AZ — RHP SETH MANNESS!
PHOENIX — SWEEP! SWEEP! SWEEP! SEASON SWEEP!
Well hiya Tony! This Cardinals squad isn’t a total surprise to La Russa.Think? Duh! We have dominated over AZ for quite some time now! He was ready for it. He probably wasn’t ready for the nice halt we brought to the Diamondbacks five-game winning streak. First four-game sweep at Chase Field. Think it’s time for a streak of our own? no jinx!
“Different guys always step up,” as Manager Mike says. Thursday it was Tony Cruz as he backed up with a homer. Nice!
Then….Brandon Moss hit his first STL homer to break the three-all tie – a two-run dinger. He was sure ready for that. We didn’t mind it, either! Nice work, dude! He had 58 plate appearances since he was traded to us by the Indians.
RHP Carlos Martinez (13-6) was “overthrowing” at the beginning of his start. After some adjustments, he retired 13 consecutive Snakes in his almost six-inning start. Strong stuff, amigo! Bullpen’s RHP Seth Manness was magical too bailing us out of a SSSnake-threatening bases-loaded, zero outs jam in the eighth inning. Whoa – what work!
Now it’s on to SF to face the Giants in San Francisco. Pennant Potential? Good luck, guys!
Note: We won’t be taking Rosey, but Manager Mike has the closer role covered for the new Daddy (his wife will be induced today). Goof luck, Rosey. Cardinal Nation’s thoughts & prayers are with you!
