Tonight’s Cardinals Loss In Three Sentences

The St. Louis Cardinals lost to the Atlanta Braves tonight 7-2. Here’s a very quick summary of the game.

1. Adam Wainwright did not pitch well — giving up five runs in 4 2/3 innings on nine hits with five walks (including three straight to walk in the first two runs of the game) and five strikeouts.

2. Brandon Beachy did pitch well for the Braves, not allowing a hit until the fourth inning and giving up one run on two hits in six innings despite four walks.

3. The Cardinals have now dropped the series to the Braves with the back-to-back losses.

Tomorrow is the Mother’s Day series finale at 1:15 p.m. Lance Lynn, who celebrates his 25th birthday today, will be going for win No. 7. Tommy Hanson will start for the Braves. And Lance Berkman might be back, which will make the LB Fan Club and mothers everywhere very happy.

  1. You know, if baseball were a newly-invented sport, it would leverage every single bit of technology available to determine balls, strikes, fair, foul, outs on the basepaths, you name it.

    Instead, baseball cleaves to the “human element,” playing the game in the 21st century using 19th century norms, the John Henry exerting itself against that new-fangled steam engine.

    I will say, if it weren’t for Gameday, we’d be ignorant of the absolute incompetence of the umpires in this game today. The umpiring for balls and strikes in this Braves/Cardinals series has been absolutely amateurish.

    The “human element.” Said in admiration by somebody whose high school didn’t have computers yet, no doubt.
