I must try to never to doubt or worry — just follow where the life of the spirit leads me ~

Dear Lord, I pray to concentrate on following the spirit. I pray that my life may become more centered in God, more than in self.  Simple, but is it really?

DENVER  —The Colorado Rockies are doing a little bit of everything right this season. Therefore, they have been winning lately — eight of their last 11 and five of their last six. It’s why they sit in first place in the National League West. We got to see that first-hand in this series opener to the tune of a 0-10 loss. 

Hitting into four double plays didn’t help matters. Neither did Charlie Blackman, who drove in three runs, that took his Major-leading RBI total to 45. He was a double short of the cycle. Big ouch! It was painful.

“Double plays were the big story,” Manager Mike said. “Even Arenado pulling that ball out of nowhere on Yadi’s smash hit (in the eighth inning). That was top of the order, you’d have the first man on and big things can happen after that. They made plays when they had to. There haven’t been that many times this year where we’ve said the double play got us, and you don’t expect that in this park.”

RHP Carlos Martinez pitched a very good game in this one — a night that could have normally been a game winner. A quality start. He struck out nine and only allowed a manageable three runs in his seven innings.

As expected, the bullpen had a very rough night. Things went sour quickly after they took over. They allowed eight runs in the eighth inning.

Add to all that — it was an off-night for our offense. Their starter, rookie RHP Antonio Senzatela (7-1) held us to five hits. When we did get hits, we could NOT put them together for runs. We just couldn’t get the line moving, right John? (@ KMOX). Yes it was Stranger Danger.

CARDS UP NEXT – ON THE ROAD AGAIN/STILL! Continue COL series for two more. Tonight RHP Adam Wainwright has the ball for our Redbirds. Waino is 3-0 and has been dangerous with a 2.73 ERA in five games (four starts) at Coors Field. Make it Waino’s World!

After the west coast road trip, it’s BACK-TO-BUSCH (5/29/17) Four-Game Series vs LAD. Memorial Day Series.

Complete th e holiday homestand and we’re ON THE ROAD AGAIN! Chicago/3 & Cincinnati/3

My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue, An everlasting vision of the ever changing view, A wondrous woven magic in bits of blue and gold, A tapestry to feel and see, impossible to hold.   —Carole King

Dear Lord, show me to where Your Spirit leads me. How often, when little I know it, God goes before me to prepare the way, to soften a heart or to overrule a resentment. Praise God!

THURSDAY @ LAD – RHP MICHAEL WACHA

.

LOS ANGELES –RHP Michael Wacha lost a 3-0 first inning lead and allowed a season-high six runs. No quality start (stopped starting rotation 11 consecutive). It was NOT his night. It was NOT our night.

 Cards, this stuff has happened many times this season. . .

We get a nice lead in the first inning  (don’t hit much after that). Ultimately lose the contest. We lost this rubber game 3-7 Thursday. Lost the series to the Dodgers.

“They did a good job battling,” said Wacha! whose ERA rose to 3.66. “Whenever I would get ahead, they would battle to get a full count, 2-2 [count]. They put up good at-bats, and in some of those cases, I wasn’t able to finish them off.”

On the bright side, Yadi has extended his hitting streak to 14 games — highest active NL streak.

CARDS UP NEXT – It’s ON THE ROAD AGAIN/STILL! COL/3 (5/26/17) Weekend Series. RHP Carlos Martinez will take the ball in this series opener and look to continue our MLB’s lowest ERA against a hot, hot, hot Rockies club. First pitch is 7:40 pm.

.                
 .
DYN? Jimmy Edmonds, our amazing Cardinals centerfielder in the 90’s, was not an OF or an IF when he started to play baseball. Edmonds was a very good pitcher in high school (he even had scouts looking at him). An injury lead him to play in the outfield – our luck!
.
Today we get to watch Jimmy Baseball broadcast our Redbirds on FOX Midwest – our luck, again!
