Cardinals win and tie a Major League record

First, checkout the feature I wrote over at Ballpark Digest

Colby Rasmus was Number 15 on this week’s Baseball America Prospect Hot Sheet.  From BA:  After hitting .421 with two home runs in 19 at-bats last week, Rasmus has lifted his season line to .257/.368/.495 in 378 at-bats. He is hitting .438/.609/.938 with two homers and two doubles in 16 August at-bats, after slumping through June and July. 

Also from BA:  New Red and outfielder Shaun Cumberland just missed making the Sheet for his 9-for-22 (.409) with four doubles week for Chattanooga.  I mention Cumberland because I saw him play over the weekend as was really impressed.  He has a smooth lefty stick, nice range in the outfield, and a strong arm.  Chattanooga had another really nice young outfielder, Danny Dorn, who hit an opposite field bomb during the game. 

I love Lucena?  Apparently they do in Springfield

No Cardinal minor leaguers received Player of the Week honors.

The Cardinals go out and get 10 hits in a row to match a MLB record.  Looper was okay, giving up 4 in 6.1 innings.  Scott Rolen had a HR and 3 RBIs.  Ludwick had a couple of hits including a double and a HR.  The guy could play everyday.  Wow, where did the hits come from?

Mike Maroth was disabled with mild elbow tendinitis.  Tyler Johnson was activated from the DL. 

 Memphis 3 Portland (San Diego) 5

Once again, Blake Hawksworth was not very good. Blake gave up 4 runs in 5 innings, giving up all 4 runs in the first.  He did strike out 7.  Chris Perez pitched a scoreless inning, giving up a hit and a walk.  Brendan Ryan had 3 hits including a 2 run HR. 

Springfield 0 Tulsa (Rockies) 3

Cory Rauschenberger was pretty good, allowing 2 runs over 6 innings. Springfield had only 4 singles for the night.  Colby had the night off.
