TUESDAY @ STL
LHP JAIME GARCIA
.
 www.cardinals.com
.
ST. LOUIS – Those Rockies are red hot!
Tuesday was a cold, cold night at Busch — the weather & our bats. 54 degrees & Ofer city (ball was not moving well in that cold air). When there were big hits to get, COL got them. We had that stream of ofers: Holliday, Piscotty, Grichuck, Adams. They all wore the collar Tuesday night. Ra-Ra/Randal Grichuck provided our lone RBI (it’s nice to see him coming around. We need his bat)
.
LHP Jaime Garcia was solid, but not quite enough. What did TLR used to tell us? “They’re men – not machines!” But bullpen rocked! Through all this dreariness our ‘pen came through for us.

ST. LOUIS – #STLisLOU — LOU BROCK IS SO-O-O IMPORTANT TO ST. LOUIS! 
.
LOU-U-U-U-U-U! Our Cardinals have a new campaign for Cardinals Nation called #STLisLOU. “What does Lou Brock mean to you?” That’ll be a question St. Louis Cardinals fans will be asked to express all season long, says Cardinals vice president of communications Ron Watermon.
.
The STLisLOU campaign kicked off in April when we played our Central Division rivals, the Chicago Cubs. The launch was a subtle “thank you” to the Cubs for bringing Lou Brock to St. Louis.
.
.
All season, fans will be encouraged to buy a STLisLOU button that will help children with diabetes. Cardinals Care will also have FUN! events during the season to earn money to help the kids!

We know God is there. . . .even when we don’t see Him. 

I pray that my faith may be strengthened with every day. The numberless instances of coincidences in my day can only be traced back to God.

Whoa! It gives me a feeling of wonder, humility and gratitude.”

THURSDAY @ LAA
MATT HOLLIDAY!!
www.cardinals.com
.
ANAHEIM — MattyHo Go!
.
It’s okay! I’ve told you b4, MattyHo’s my affectionate nickname for MattHolliday. MattyMo MattyHo. Get it?! Anyways Holliday was on a tear again. He’s totally locked in right now! Wednesday a home run and two doubles. Thursday two homers. The man’s still got it! We took the finale 12-10 and swept the Angels in a good ‘ol American League slugfest.
.
Not before the Angels flexed their wings/muscles. Within five and bottom of he ninth, Albert Pujols had to say hi to us (I guess) and hit a two-run homer. That, and the RBI single before AP’s bat,  made it a game. This one went down to the last pitch.
.
In the ninth, our closer, RHP Trevor Rosenthal, had trouble closing the door tight and allowed three consecutive walks to load the bases.  Scary Time!
.
We all know Trevor Rosenthal can’t pitch on back-to-back nights, right? So, it was NOT his night (he closed Wednesday’s W). Rosenhal  couldn’t find the strike zone. Exit Rosey. Enter LHP Kevin Seigrist. He came in to save the day and got us out of Rosey’s unnecessary jam. Muchas gracias, Kevin!
 .
Our offense rocked once more! Thursday Holliday was 4-for-5 with two home runs, three RBIs & three runs, Carp2/Matt Carpenter went deep for the third time in the series and then Big Hitter, City/Matt Adams knocked in three runs!  That hot! offense knocked in ten runs after the fourth inning. It supported a shaky start by Waino/RHP Adam Wainwright. We battled– we needed every run for this W.

“That’s who I believe we are, and I hope they keep believing it,” Matheny said of his offense, which tallied 41 hits and 25 runs in the series. “We’ve talked a lot about the young guys coming through for us, and sooner or later the big boys were going to come [up big].”

Still in SoCal. Now it’s off to LA LA Land to beat up the Dodgers. No jinx!

Pitchers of record Thursday: RHP WAINWRIGHT, RHP OH. RHP BROXTON, RHP MANNESS, RHP, ROSENTHAL, LHP SIEGRIST
