TALKIN’ SH&T/SHILDT (NO OFFENSE, SHILDTY) 🙂 “It was maybe a little microcosm of us,” manager Mike Shildt added. “Just a big relief.”

ST. LOUIS —

“We needed that win,” Gyorko said afterward. “That’s a big win for us. We’ve been struggling. This has been a tough month. And to have a lead and then give it up and then get that win, hopefully that kind of jumpstarts things. Hopefully, we can look later in this month and going into next month, and maybe that’s a win that kind of got us going.” NO JINX!

Baseball has not been going the Cardinal Way in May: we hit into DPs, miss the BIG HIT by inches & opponents’ hits just find a whole in our outfield. We have totally struggled.

Saturday was a fantastic May game! We used our one-two punch: Carpenter tied it up and then Gyorko took it home!

 

The series finale is ESPN’s Game of the Week Sunday. Jack Flaherty toes the rubber in our “Baseball for the World!” Right John! (Rooney, KMOX) Go Cards!

SATURDAY WAS NOT JUST A REDBIRD CELEBRATION. “IT WAS A PARTY. A BIG DOG PARTY!”

See the source image PITCHING: Dakota Hudson: IP6.1/H5/R2/ER2/BB2/SO2/HR0/ERA4.22  TOTAL BB’s: 4

Dakota was locked in Saturday. Ground Ball City – 13! He actually says he predicted this win while he was winding down Saturday on the exercise bike and said later,

“Maybe that gets us going a little bit,” he said. “I feel like this is a team win if you’ve ever seen one. I feel like everybody leaves today knowing they were locked on. NO JINX!

Jordan Hicks FINALLY gets the chance for another save (total: 11). In May 15-of-18 games have been without his blazing fastball (KC is only club in baseball to do worse. Sorry guys, but you know. . .). Shildty had him pitch (an inning or two) when it wasn’t necessary, just to get some work in.

Saturday was 103 & 104 mph with movement! You could see Yadi trying to settle him down from behind the dish while he was out there!

Soroka,  the ATL starter was very, very, very good! Shut down our offense for the first three innings. Nine pitches was all it was all he was needing to get through our lineup. Scary good! We started to hit in the FOURTH INNING.

FIFTH INNING: Yadier Molina comes through to give us a lead that we would lose. Sorry guys, but you know. . .

TALKIN’ SH&T/SHILDT (NO OFFENSE, SHILDTY) 🙂 On recent changes made:“I’m not a knee-jerk guy. I’m not a dig-my-foot-put-my-head-in-the-sand guy, either,” Shildt said in describing the time it took for him to make a change. “We’re confident in this lineup. We changed the complexion of it a little bit. I’m not naïve to the fact that we need to produce more runs consistently based on the last couple weeks.”

HOUSEKEEPING: Flavors of Puerto Rico – Yadi hosted this event Thursday night. Lots of FUN! Click 4 more on Yadi’s fundraiser

TERRY PENDLETON – Former Redbird now in ATL front office. Such a good baseball man, makes sense!

We’re home in Baseball Heaven. Love that view!

REPORT: Talkin’ STL Shake-up: We’ve lost 14 of last 19 games. Changes are a coming! 1: Changes to lineup: Dex moved to leadoff position. Carp moved down to fifth. 

2: Changes to starting rotation: Michael Wacha! moved to bullpen. Click 4 more

HOW DID WE GET HERE? APRIL: We enjoyed a fantastic record, numbers were great.        MAY: A bad month — Ugly results. “Turn the Page!”

Cards brass tries to find a combination that works. “We are not going to do the same thing over and over.” Mozeliak said. 

More Mo on shake-up: “I just think you look at our month of May, clearly we felt it was time to do something different,” president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said. “When you look at the success Dex is having, trying to put him up top to get people on base and maybe allow Carp a little bit of a breather. I feel like Carp is getting close, but it was just something we have been discussing internally, and we decided to give it a try.”

FUN! FACT — Dexter Fowler when with the Cubs: CHC Manager, Joe Maddon, used to tell Fowler, “When you go, we go.” Mo has high hopes too!

HAPPIER STL TIMES (WEDNESDAY GAME 2)

ST. LOUIS — Friday was Marcell Ozuna’s bobblehead night. Our Cards were celebrating with our Big Bear!

Hilarious! Friday Jose Martinez is a live bobblehead – Click 4 more

Our POA Friday: New lineup — good results

ATL outhit us 12-7. Hurt us with the long ball too (3). STL Struck out 11 times.

Saturday is Game 2 and hoping for some good stuff. Dakota Hudson pitches for our Cards. Jack Flaherty toes the rubber in Sunday’s “Baseball for the World!” Right John! Go Cards!

Think good thoughts guys! Don’t throw in the towel. You have too much potential. Cardinals Nation has got the faith! We’re right here behind you –every game, every inning, every pitch!

See the source image PITCHING: Miles Mikolas: IP7.0/H7/R3/ER3/BB0/SO9/HR2/ERA4.76  STL Pitcher BB’s: 0 

We needed Miles Mikolas to be the anchor in the pitching rotation. He has facial hair again and had extra rest. Hopes were high.

Friday Mikolas pitched more like himself. Struck out 9, walked 0. Other than the sixth inning (allowed back-to back homers) he was excellent.

“Things tend to even themselves out, which is why I think myself and guys around the clubhouse aren’t too worried,” said Mikolas, who fell to 4-5. “You have your ups and downs. We’re down right now, but it’s all about getting hot at the right time.”

See the source imageOFFENSE: STL RUNS SCORED: 1ST inning -/2nd 2-/3rd  1/4th -/5th -/6th -/7th – /8th – /9th 1     STL K’s:11     BIRDS LEFT ON BAGS: 6 

Got to end the feast or famine trend we are on. Didn’t happen Friday.

SEVENTH INNING:  potential rally with runners on base & zero outs but drizzled. Couldn’t get the big hit (or any hit) when we needed it.

“I’m just seeing more consistent at-bats,” Shildt said of his third baseman. “Carp is a feel guy, like a lot of hitters. He feels like he’s getting closer. We’re starting to see swings where he’s starting to get the ball a little more consistently than he has, driving the ball. Those are all positive things that look like we’re trending in the right spot.”

NINTH INNING: Matt Carpenter hits solo homer.

Carpenter on his offense woes: “Last year, I got to a point where I just didn’t know what I was doing and felt completely lost,” Carpenter said. “I’ve never really gotten to that point with this season. I just haven’t gotten hot and haven’t gotten a bunch of hits. But I feel like I’m having good at-bats, and I’m walking and seeing the ball. It’s just been different. Not just last year, but typically in my career, the end of May, June, July, August months have always been good, so hopefully it’ll be the same.”
