Presenting the top of the fourth inning, Cardinals vs. Giants, July 1:
Yes, the Cardinals loaded the bases with two hits and a hit-by-pitch off Tim Lincecum. No outs. Great opportunity! Then one out. Two outs. Three outs. No runs. Three left on base.
There it is, your 2014 Cardinals in a nutshell.
“I was hoping I could make them hit a double-play ball,” Lincecum added, “But they struck out, so it worked out.”
Yep, the 2014 Cardinals. Helping out opposing pitchers everywhere, as they lost again last night 5-0.
Speaking of opposing pitchers, the Cardinals finished their “Games Against The Guys Who Threw No-Hitters This Season” tour last night against Lincecum.
And the total offense against Josh Beckett last Thursday, Clayton Kershaw on Sunday and Timmy last night?
