WHAT HAPPENED?

www.cardinals.com
.
ST. LOUIS — Carp2 (M Carpenter) lead off Tuesday’s contest with a home run (his fifth) and MattyHo (Holliday) homered in the sixth (his seventh of the year), but it wasn’t enough against the hometown boy on the mound.
.
The big story in this series opener was. . . .not that the Rays got the Cards (that certainly happened, but. . .), it was that the Ray’s righty, Jake Odorizzi (6-8), was a Highland, Illinois native. Yeah, we like to see hometown guys do well (heck he grew up rooting for our Cards) but come on! He had total control. Can’t you almost see the wheels in motion?
.
“I didn’t know what to expect coming in, and I didn’t think I would have much nerves to be honest, and then I definitely had a lot of nerves,” said Odorizzi, who had several hundred supporters in the stands. “I was nervous. I was excited. I was just about anything you could be.”
.
RHP Adam Wainwright (12-5) had an “atypical” start/struggle. Waino trudged along just fine in the early innings. He was in sync & looked very good. Then in the fifth inning, Adam slowed down dramatically allowed five runs, committed an error, walked in two runs and was taken out (Wainwright called the fifth a “train wreck”). Click out Manager Mike on Wainwright’s struggles in Mike’d Up! after the loss.
.
“That’s just another terrible thing I did tonight,” said Wainwright of his first error in 85 games. “I was going to grab it and flip it real quick to first base and kind of looked up before I caught the ball. You need to catch it first.”
.
More of the excitement that occurred (yeah, we had some excitement in this L — not much!).
.
Our offense, unfortunately, had a very stale night against the hometown boy. Milk toast pretty much described it. Rays only had seven hits, but they were of the timely nature.

Milwaukee got a victory against the Reds Tuesday. :(

BIRD POOP ON 7/22/14!

.
WHAT HAPPENED? Nada. Monday was an off-day.
.
WHAT’S UP TODAY?
Cards vs Rays @ Busch. GAME ON!  715pm.
Who’s Pitching Tuesday?   Adam Wainwright (12-4, 1.83 ERA) faces
.
ST. LOUIS — WOO HOO! WOO HOO! 
.
The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported good news for Cardinal Nation Monday. RHP Michael Wacha’s MRI and CT scan came back with encouraging results.
.
“This is positive,” Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak told Posts’s Hummel. “This still could put him [pitching for St. Louis] in early September.”
.
Wacha, 23, is looking good this season @ 5-5 and a 2.79 ERA.
.
But. . . .we haven’t seen Wacha! Wacha! Wacha! since June 17 against the PS-Mets when he hurled six innings. OMG! Does that mean New York brought Pond Scum luck to Wacha!?  Makes perfect sense to me! No offense.
.
Wacha! out was a major blow to our rotation, but we have proved to have enough pitcher depth to fill in nicely during this PS-time (Garcia out too. Not PS-related).
.
Wacha hopes to begin a throwing program in two weeks, according to the Post-Dispatch. No jinx!
