Short post due to technical difficulties.
It was getaway day for the Cards and their minds must have already been on the plane trip to SF. It really seems they mailed it in. Nothing like getting swept by the Pirates at home. The Cards had four hits. With all the troubles the team had vs. lefties last year, I thought Jocketty would have addressed that this past offseason. Well, you know he didn’t and the Cardinals’ struggles continue. Wainwright got roughed up, giving up 5 runs in 6 innings. Next up for the Cardinals, old friend Matt Morris and Mr. Personality, Barry Bonds.
Memphis fell to New Orleans (Mets) 6-5. Tagg Bozied homered and had 3 RBIs. Rico Washington added two hits. Former Card Fernando Tatis had 2 RBIs for the Zephyrs. Mike Smith took the loss giving up 6 runs in 6 innings.
Springfield lost to Frisco (Rangers) 5-2. Top OF Prospects Colby Rasmus and Jon Jay were a combined 0 for 8. Tyler Greene homered. Bryan Anderson had one hit and is now hitting .385. Chris Lambert took the loss, giving up four runs in five innings on 6 hits, 3 of them HRs.
Palm Beach thumped St. Lucie (Mets) 8-1. Adam Ottavino got the win, pitching 6 shutout innings. Nick Webber also added 2 shutout innings.
