MONDAY @ STL
RHP ADAIN WAINWRIGHT 
www.cardinals.com
.
ST. LOUIS –Woo hoo! Back to playing .500 ball in the standings!
.
RHP Adam Wainwright got the Win Monday AND the Play of the Game. The Phillies came out to an early lead in the third and looked as though they were on the way to get their seventh consecutive win (and our fifth loss) but. . . Adam Wainwright is back! FINALLY!
.
In the fourth inning Wainwright slammed a 2-out three-run homer (seventh of his career) to the seats above Big Mac Land and got this offense going. Hello momenum changer!  New game & score 3-3 (his hr was Waino’s second hit of the game. 1st he hit a rocket-soaring double).
.
Home runs became the name of the game in this series opener. Five of them. Waino’s homer was followed by back-to-back homers in the sixth by Diaz/Allen and the seventh by Grichuck/Wong (scored 2). We picked up another run in the eighth. That’s using your bats!
.
Manager Mike called this one. In his pre-game interview he said, “We just gotta pick it up a little bit.” Think they minded their manager just fine and gave him some “Little bit” plus! In April our Cards scored the most runs by any team.  This is a great way to kick off May, guys!
.
The pitchers of record Monday were: RHP Wainwright (got win)/RHP Oh/ LHP Siegrist/RHP Manis.

SUNDAY @ STL RHP CARLOS MARTINEZ 
www.cardinals.com
.
ST. LOUIS –WSH pitching/slugging just had it’s way with us in this series — and that’s to say the least!  Sunday turned out to be a lot of what we have already experienced vs WSH.
.
Martinez, battling the flu and some off-the-field issues, had a very good start in this series finale but suffered his first loss. The amigo struck out a season-high eight. Martinez was sharp until the seventh, then allowed back-to-back homers. The Nats were off to the races! Sunday our offense wasn’t much help as they couldn’t figure out St. Louis native, WSH RHP Max Scherzer. He was wicked! Our Cards lacked timely hitting and could not “get the line moving” to borrow a phrase from KMOX’s John Rooney. 
.

“I’m not feeling good,” Martinez said after his start. “With the coughing and stuff like that, I still feel like I have the flu. They went out there and made pretty good swings on those pitches. I feel pretty good because those are the pitches I want to throw.”

“We knew coming in that Harper has been very hot and productive,” Manager Mike said. “But they have quite a few guys who can hurt you. They have a very strong offensive team.”.

Cardinals pitchers of record were: RHP Martinez, LHP Siegrist, RHP Oh & LHP Lyons.
.
Turn the page, guys. Bye Bye WSH — PHI is in town!
.
REPORT – Sunday was the 2016 BLOGGER EVENT. . . .and what an EVENT this was!
.
This is a day that I wait for all year. Duh! I’m blessed to be invited by our Cardinals – muhas gracias. This is www.mlbvoice.com’s fifth year attending (this year was the sixth year for the Event).
.
PREGAME PROGRAM
This day started out with a BANG! or maybe a MONSTER HOME RUN! The Cardinals had a Pregame program at Busch Stadium with Team President, Bill Witt III, VP and GM John Mozeliak and Cardinals’ Executive Chef Larry Johnson. As usual, Ron Waterman and the Cardinals PR Department made sure everything ran smoothly; no errors. 
.
Roughly 30-40 Cardinals Bloggers and their guests were in attendance. The PR team set up a “mock” press conference. Bloggers, just like me, got to ask them the BIG baseball questions we’ve been wondering about. Whoa! Pinch me!
.
Mr. DeWitt (who not feeling well, thank you for being there) and Mo discussed a large variety of subjects from the Minor League guys and their progression, to the progress of BallPark Village and the #STLisLOU campaign. Concerts, soccer, etc. @ Busch were discussed. They are bullish on this.
.
FUN! The Cardinals want us to have FUN! with baseball. Makes perfect sense, eh? Anyway, they want fans to, for instance, film their kids taking that mighty Matt Holliday swing, etc. Click out Cardinals.com/fun. Now go to town, Cardinals Nation!
.
Ballpark Village — They expressed how exciting it was to see BallPark Village grow into what it has become. The next phase (that includes apartments) will begin in the near future. They get questions from other baseball cities, “So, how did you actually  accomplish this?” What a compliment! 
.
Kudos to you, Mr. DeWitt! BallPark Village makes our downtown so enjoyable. It’s changed St. Louis! To watch people stay downtown AFTER the game is wonderful.  At Winter Warm-Up you announced an exciting endeavor to us called BallPark Village. We didn’t really know what to expect. It is as perfect as you envisioned it to be. Thank you for not giving up on this, Mr. DeWitt. 
CARDINALS BASEBALL
There was baseball to be played! We enjoyed a game at the Legends Club party suite (L6-1 Enjoy?). 
.
During the game, Cardinals’ chefs made sure we had food, glorious food in our party suite! This was more than your basic hot dog & a pretzel menu. We enjoyed some fabulous ballpark fare the Cardinals chefs have created for the new season. We got to test out their new creations. Cool!
.
Here are a few items we had on Sunday’s menu: Meatball Cone (something new), House-smoked Ribs, Smoked Brisket Italian Beef Hoagie, Turkey/Vegan Burger and a Chicharron — plus lots more good food. And for dessert– Dinger’s Donuts and Berry Brownie Skewer. Yumm! Carlories were not counted Sunday!
.
I’m speechless. . . .yea, me! Our Cardinals wearing the host hats are — Top Notch. They made me feel like a queen
(blogger) for the day.  & Thank you!!
To come!  A fellow blogger from STL Sports Page taped the entire 2016 Blogger Event. Click it out — it will be just like you were there. Okay minus the fabulous food.

THURSDAY @ ARI

RHP MICHAEL WACHA! 

www.cardinals.com

PHOENIX — Overall, this road trip was considered successful — just didn’t end on a good note. First we took the PAD series and then split the one with ARI.  Probably pretty happy on their fight back to St. Louis Thursday. 4-3 is good for the West Coast.

Thursday Wacha had a few pitches that he’d like to have back. Homers & down 3-0 early. That was the name of the game. And….ARI RHP Rubby De LaRosa.  He was nasty! Struck out ten of our Redbirds. Ouch!

“The pitches and command felt really good tonight,” said Wacha, who threw a career-high 114 pitches. “The plan going into the game today was establish the fastball down in the zone and really try to work down because of the ballpark we’re playing in. The ball can really fly out of here.”

RHP Michael Wacha! had a good night on the mound — nine Ks, 2 BOBs.  Three bad pitches.

Back-to-Busch and face the Nats tonight. They have been tough. Stephen Strasburgh too. He’s definately tough!

Good luck, guys! Think good thoughts, Cardinals Nation.
