Cards win it late and get the sweep [Cardinals 2, Reds 1] +1 (Season +1)

Cards WIN

The Cardinals had trouble scoring off of a Reds starter for the first time this year and it was a classic pitchers duel between Adam Wainwright and Mike Leake who both pitched 8 innings. Adam Wainwright gave up 7 hits to Leake’s 4 and it was touch and go in the 8th when […]

Cards score 5 and win 4th straight [Cardinals 5, Reds 2]

Cards WIN

They did it again. Carlos Martinez only pitched six innings and was well under 100 pitches when he was taken out – but why not make sure his second start is a positive experience. Seth Maness came in and made everybody nervous allowing a run but pitched 1 and 2/3 and then Randy […]

Cardinals score 6 runs and win [Cardinals 6, Reds 1]

Ugh. Cardinals lose to Reds when Walden walks Hamilton [Reds 5, Cardinals 4]

Cards Lose

This game just left you feeling bad all over. I was very confident going up against Jason Marquis – so confident that I started to worrry. It seemed like we would take advantage of him when he walked Matt Carpenter on 4 straight pitches to start the game. But the Cardinals did some […]
