Cardinals Find A Way

By bullpenbrian at 05.13.2011 Leave a comment.

Cards pound Cubs 9-1 to take series.

St. Louis finds a way…
16 hits, 6-for-16 with RISP.
No Berkman, no Theriot no problem.
Jamie Garcia improves to (5-0), ERA 1.89.
He’s one of the most over-looked pitchers in MLB.

Another dreadful day offensively for Chicago.
1-for-9 with RISP.
7 of 9 hits for singles.
No HR with wind blowing out.
Where’s the power…?
And why can’t this team score runs?
For what it’s worth, Marlon Byrd extended his hitting streak to 13-games.

Cubs continue to slip…
Five games back with June around the corner.
Cubs are 2-10 in the final game of a series.
Worse…2-6 in rubber games.

Defending champs are in town over the weekend.
Giants have won six straight…and didn’t need more than four runs per game to do it.

Bumgarner (0-5) goes Friday vs. Dempster (1-4).
Might be the Cubs best shot at a win.
Vogelsong (2-0) on Sat. & Lincecum (enough said) on Sunday.
Cubs counter with Doug Davis & Zambrano.
