6/21 R H E

STL  3 7  4

MIL  11 12 0 – WP: SUTER 8-4, LP: MARTINEZ 3-4

MILWAUKEE — ATTENDANCE:   32,364

Thursday was a long night for the Cardinals. Nothing went our Cardinals’ way — NOTHING. It was not pretty! We fell behind early and it only got worse. 

Frustrating to say the least. Ricky Horton called it this way: “The Brewers are licking their chops – they can’t wait to get to the plate to bat!” The score certainly reflected that — all night!

Not only C-Mart struggled, our defense struggled too. Four STL errors in this very sloppy game. Major Ouch!  Right now we can only look forward to playing better baseball in Game 2 of the four-game series. Game One is history.

PITCHING: STARTER MARTINEZ PITCHES/STRIKES 92/57, IP 4.0, H 8, R 7, K 3, BB 2, HR 1, ERA 3.24

Ricky Horton on KMOX, “Carlos Martinez has lost his mojo!” He called his pitching performance “discombobulated.”  We needed Carlos to be Carlos. Not!

“The first two starts I was scared about going back to being injured,” Martinez said. “Now, I need to work with my strike zone. … I’m just waiting to get back to being better.”

STL PITCHER TOTALS-USED 4 PITCHERS: H 12, R 11, K 5, BB 4, HR 1

OFFENSE: #STL K: 8  #BIRDS STRANDED/BAGS: 8

MIL RHP Suter was fantastic.  He mowed down our Birds. Matt Carpenter did hit another homer – first pitch of the game. Nice! He’s really taking good at-bats. Our old Carp2 is back!! no jinx

RBI:   CARPENTER (31), MUNOZ (15)

HR/STL: CARPENTER (13, 1ST INNING, 0 ON)   HR/MIL: PINA (4TH INNING OFF MARTINEZ 0 ON)

HOUSEKEEPING STATS: 3 E: CARPENTER, MARTINEZ, C (2, PICKOFF), GYORKO (7 FIELDING, THROWING) 

We don’t turn things around, and we certainly could, this could be a long 4-game series! 

YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO. PLAY LIKE THE CARDINALS!
