KANSAS CITY — The Kansas City Royals have a reputation to come back and win ballgames late in the game (after the 7th inning). That was before they faced our new-look Cardinals bullpen. We came at them with perfect 7th & 8th innings. RHP Jonathan Broxton in the 7th & LHP Kevin Siegrist in the 8th. Then our newly appointed CBC Closer by Committee pitched in the 9th to shut the door tight. Tuesday was RHP Seung-Hwan Oh. KC made it interesting by adding a couple runs and loading the bases in the ninth, but to no avail.  We were victorious!
.
Our offense was there to back their pitchers too. Seven of our Cardinals drove in runs Tuesday. Plus, Carp2 homered again. And you know like I always tell you when Carp2 hits we win! we do!
Now it’s back-to-Busch for some home cookin’! Good luck.  Keep the power going! You know what to do.
.
Cardinal Nation will be there behind you! Game on!
Pitchers of record Tuesday: RHP WACHA/RHP BROXTON/LHP SIEGRIST/RHP OH.

MONDAY @ KC. RHP T. ROSENTHAL & SCORELESS EIGHTH INNING!

KANSAS CITY — Okay, let’s start on a positive note. The Midwest loves it’s baseball.  Kansas City has a rabid-like fanbase just like we have in St. Louis.  Fill up the stadium too. Sure it was nice to play to hometown crowd like that.   

 You’re right – they just won a Worlds Series Championship in 2015, but these fans have been with the Royals through thick and thin. KC hasn’t always been this good. They hadn’t had a championship since they beat us in 1985. That Denkinger Blown Call At First Series. Cardinal Nation remembers it well — I do.

Well we got over it all (kinda) and rooted for our Missouri neighbors last year. But not Monday night.  It was rival time. I-70 Series time.

We have trouble in the first game of the series with AL teams. We’re 9 & 16. The contest started out nice as we saw MattyHo Go! Matt Holliday, our DH, hit a two-run dinger in his first at-bat. He showed KC that we were serious. But They were too. They retaliated with their own 6-2 lead in the second inning.  

That was all their lefty starter needed. Duffy halted our offense —  had our number from the get-go. Retired eight consecutive Redbirds. That happens to us with lefty pitchers sometimes.  The Royals got an early 6-2 lead and held it from the second inning.  We couldn’t get our line moving. Pretty simple, but not pretty.   

RHP Adam Wainwright also did not have his lights out stuff. Started the game striking out a Royal with his dynamite curve ball.  Fast ball had good movement too. Waino’s curve ball betrayed him. They were hitting it. . . .hitting everything. Wore him down & by the second inning he had already thrown 66 pitches.  He settled in but it was too late. Damage had been done.

“If I just make a different pitch three of those times or four of those times, we’re talking about zeros instead of big, crooked numbers,” Wainwright said. “It was pretty frustrating. I had decent stuff today, too.”

Let’s discuss something positive.  Our bullpen rocked! RHP Trevor Rosenthal was used in a “new roll” and held the Royals to a scoreless 8th inning.  LHP Seth Manness was good too. Nice!

Tuesday we have another game in KC. Then we go home to Busch! We have GOT to have a good homestand when we get back. Our season pretty much depends on it. This is serious stuff! We can turn the page and get it going, guys!

Game on!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CARDINALS ACTIVATE CATCHER BRAYAN PENA FROM D.L.;

CATCHER ERIC FRYER DESIGNATED FOR ASSIGNMENT

KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 28, 2016 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced prior to tonight’s game that they have activated switch-hitting catcher Brayan Pena (left knee surgery) from the 15-day disabled list and designated catcher Eric Fryer for assignment.

Pena, 34, who underwent left knee surgery the first week in April, had missed the first 75 games of the 2016 season.   He batted a combined .192 (10-for-52) in 14 games between Memphis (5 games) and Springfield (9 games) during his injury rehabilitation assignment.   Pena made nine starts at catcher and two at first base during his rehab assignment.

A native of Havana, Cuba, Pena owns a career .260 batting mark with 23 home runs and 164 RBI in 629 games with Atlanta (2005-08), Kansas City (2009-12), Detroit (2013) and Cincinnati (2014-15).

Fryer, 30, appeared in 24 games with the Cardinals, batting .368 (14-for-38) with 5 RBI.

Pena, who wears no. 33, will be in uniform for tonight’s series finale at Kansas City.
