BILL DEWITT, JR: “Mike Matheny has served the St. Louis Cardinals organization with tremendous dedication and pride, and I am thankful for his service to the Cardinals over the past six and a half seasons,” DeWitt Jr. said in a statement released on Saturday night. “On behalf of the entire Cardinals organization, I would like to wish Mike the very best.”

JOHN MOZELIAK: “These decisions are never easy, but we felt that a change in leadership was necessary as the team prepares to enter into the second half of the season,” Mozeliak said. “I would like to thank Mike for his exceptional commitment and devotion to the Cardinals’ organization, including many fond memories of our years working together.”

Two baseball teams played a game. One team won but no man touched base. How could that be?

They were both girl teams.

“It’s been one of those days, folks,” was all Mike Shannon on KMOX had to say about Saturday’s game. The Moon Man was certainly right.

The CIN Reds: Through all their down-time, they have still had good, strong bats in their lineup — they could always get the hit; Joey Votto and his teammates are very good offensively. What they was missing was pitching. After a dismal start to the season, they fired their manager in April and hired interim manager, good, smart baseball guy Jim Riggleman. He’s turned this team around. They started to beat clubs. Hey, they swept the Cubs last month! The CIN Reds have become an offensively-strong, momentum-driven club.  

Our STL Cardinals: We knew that Saturday was one of those “make-or-break” ballgames. It didn’t go our Cardinal way. Yup, it broke! 

Saturday vs CIN: We took an early 2-0 lead, but couldn’t hold on to it. The Reds’ Hit Parade ran the show again. Our bullpen struggled and our offense struggled. You’re right, that’s happened before, hasn’t it?  It was not a pretty sight. CIN took Saturday’s match up: FINAL SCORE: CIN8-2.

This was a looong day of baseball. Two rain delays: 1st one – 52 minutes and second – 1 hour & 51 minutes. Rain delays or not, we just couldn’t get our act together good enough Saturday against the Reds.

Baby Bird, Jack Flaherty started and was strong. He looked good, pitching out of jams when he needed to. Then the rain hit.

Bullpen crumbled again. RHP Jordan Hicks, our 103/104 mph hard-throwing  Baby Bird, surrendered a career-high four runs. 

Matt Carpenter lead the game off with his 18th homer. Nice!

(especially after Carp2 was robbed of a homer in Game One by a spectacular Billy Hamilton catch).

Click it out if you missed it. A Cards’ fan can even admire this work!

It was a promising start. With CIN hitting like they do, that wan’t enough. Our bullpen needed more of a cushion. That didn’t happen.

        R H E – 7/13 SERIES OPENER

CIN  9 14 0

STL   1 4 0 – WP: HARVEY 5-5, LP:MARTINEZ 6-5

ST. LOUIS — Baseball Heaven: 45,891      91 degrees, clear

Yes, we HAD dominated the CIN Reds. . . .in the past. In fact, we had already swept them two series this season.

TODAY, a new & improved winning CIN club barrels into town (fired Manager in April after dismal start to season).

Friday was a fairly close contest until. . .

SEVENTH INNING – A five-run inning gave the Reds a healthy lead they would build on. Their bats just slammed our bullpen. Huge Ouch! FINAL SCORE: CIN9-1.

🙁 After Friday’s loss to CIN, our Redbirds are now playing .500 ball at Busch Stadium. This is not good baseball, guys. You know what to do!

Saturday we face CIN for Game Two @ 3:10 PM CDT. We have Jack Flaherty on the mound for our Redbirds.

Go Cards – you got this. You do!

PITCHING: STARTER CARLOS MARTINEZ PITCHES/STRIKES 89/60, IP 5.0, H6, R3, K4, BB2, HR1, ERA 3.08

Carlos Martinez did a a decent job. When he was on the mound, the score was close and he kept our Cardinals in this game. 

STL PITCHER TOTALS – USED 3 PITCHERS: H14, R9 K5, BB4, HR2

Our bullpen crumbled.

OFFENSE: #STL K: 6   #BIRDS STRANDED/BAGS: 6

Bats silenced by Reds’ pitching. RHP Matt Harvey dominated our lineup (retired ten straight by fifth inning). Their bullpen continued dominance.

Paul DeJong’s bat is starting to come around.

RBI: MOLINA (30)           

HR/STL:  —     2 HR/CIN: 1-GENNETT (3RD INNING OFF MARTINEZ, 0 ON O OUT) 2-HERRERA (7TH OFF TUIVAILALA, 2 ON 1 OUT)

THE BIRD POOP ~

MANAGER MIKE SAID IT LIKE THIS, “We know that you’re going to have games that don’t look the way you want to, and we know we’re going to go through a run where we’re going to play really good baseball on a consistent basis,” said Matheny, whose club has been held to one run or fewer 15 times this year. “Overall, you start to see some positives, but we [saw] enough negatives that put us into a hole today that we couldn’t work our ways out of.”
