The moment an individual can accept and forgive himself, even a little, is the moment in which he becomes to some degree lovable.  —Eugene Kennedy

My Dearest Lord, help me have the courage to learn and grow from my mistakes. I need to remember I can love me for just being me!

TALKIN’ POSTSEASON NUMBERS FIRST: The Cubs won an extra-innings affair to ensure they’d maintain a five-game division lead over the Cardinals (they played MIL) The Cards, though, no longer have to look up at the Brewers. Milwaukee fell a half-game back of St. Louis in both in the NL Central and Wild Card races. The Cardinals will enter the weekend trailing the Rockies by 1 1/2 games for the second Wild Card spot after Colorado beat San Diego       BELIEVE -THERE IS TIME!

PITTSBURGH — Friday was the first day of Fall. It was also Manager Mike’s 47th birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DUDE! You asked for a Playoff Push for your birthday and guess what you got?!

What a comeback win in the Series Opener! We came back and preserved our lead. . .again. The Buccos kept coming back to try to take this match-up. DO NOT count us out! We just don’t give up!

“It was amazing, all the way around,” Manager Mike said. “A lot of guys contributing. Just one of those [wins] that you put a mark next to that showed a lot of grit.

NINTH INNING – First – Jedd Gyorko ties the game with his pinch-hit single. Then – Dexter Fowler drives in the clutch go-ahead run!

Bottom of the frame: RHP Niscasio locks down the save and shuts the door tight! He’s got some amazing stuff! 

“Just an experienced arm with great stuff (on Nicasio),” Manager Mike said. “I know he’s anxious to pitch and anxious to be a part of a team that’s doing what we’re doing right now.”

“You know what type of guy he is, what type of stuff he’s got and his demeanor. He’s having a heck of a year all the way through,” said Mercer, Nicasio’s former teammate. “He’s going to go out there and compete, give everything he’s got. His stuff speaks for itself. It’s a tough at-bat. You’ve got to grind it out, hope he makes a mistake and leaves something over, get on base and start a rally. You’re not looking to do too much right there.”

Our offense started early on RHP Nova. The pitcher that doesn’t normally allow walks, allowed FOUR BB Friday. He’s only allowed 31 BB all season long. Good eye, guys! Being patient pays off!

Fowler has hit in six straight games!

Tommy Pham! .343 road batting average is #1 in the National League!

“It’s a fun stretch right now,” Cardinals starter Michael Wacha said. “It seems like this team never gives up, and we’re always in it. We’ve been playing some hard games on this road trip. It’s been a lot of fun.” 

RHP MICHAEL WACHA! 5 IP/73 PITCHES, 47 FOR STRIKES, 3H, 2R, 2ER, 4K, 1BB, 0HR. CLICK OUT BOX SCORE LINK ABOVE FOR MORE PITCHER NUMBERS

“The win today, when you’re trailing in the ninth and facing one of the best closers in the National League, to go out there and make something happen is pretty big,” Cardinals first baseman Jose Martinez said. “Every game is important to us. No doubt about it.”

 

 

TALKIN’ BASEBALL TRIVIA!

GEORGE KISSELL – A BASEBALL MENTOR!

KISSELL TEACHING MARK MCGWIRE BASEBALL

Cardinals Nation hears his name a lot! George Kissell (1940-2008) was a STL Cardinals legendary instructor who was well known for simplifying the game. STL Baseball and his name just (still) go together.  

Last week, Ricky Horton shared one of his tricks of the trade:”When a pitcher dropped the ball during a game, instead of rushing the play which could make it into something huge, Kissell told pitchers to just push the ball into the ground so they could steady themselves. Then pick up the non-moving ball and continue the game.”

Just too Simple!
