Here are the line-ups for today's game
NO. ST. LOUIS CINCINNATI
1. S. Schumaker, 2B D. Stubbs, CF
2. C. Rasmus, CF D. Sutton, SS
3. A. Pujols, 1B J. Votto, 1B
4. M. Holliday, LF B. Phillips, 2B
5. R. Ankiel, RF S. Rolen, 3B
6. T. Glaus, 3B J. Bruce, RF
7. Y. Molina, C J. Gomes, LF
8. B. Ryan, SS C. Miller, C
9. C. Carpenter, P K. Wells, P

BTW the Accuscore projection on ESPN.com's game preview, only gives the Reds a 32% shot today. Lord knows we have struggled with Carpenter.

I hope the clubhouse boys properly dirtied up the balls today ;)

Wells goes full to the first two hitters, inducing Schumaker to ground to second and then striking out Rasmus swinging.

Colby Rasmus is struggling with the same problems Bruce dealt with earlier this season. Just like Bruce he got off to a real hot start and has really cooled off since the league got the book on him.

Edd Roush
10-01-2009, 01:49 PM
Wells throws 10 pitches to Pujols and goes full with him before inducing another groundout, this time to Sutton at short.

0-0 mid first

Stubbs grounds out to third to start off the bottom of the first for the Reds.

Cards out in order in the first. Now get the slick baseball's out for Carpenter. :)

Sutton Ks looking on a pitch right below his knees.

Howdy folks. Just checking in before I head to lunch and I'm glad Wells got through the first inning. Hopefully when I get back to my desk with my lunch the Reds are up by a run or two and Carpenter has thrown about 30 pitches, LOL ;) :D

Edd Roush
10-01-2009, 01:56 PM
Votto grounds out to first to end the inning.

0-0 after 1

Oh for Pete's sake... why?

Tom Servo

Oh for Pete's sake... why?
They were noting how Wells' had 'poor body language' with the Cardinals and that Dave Duncan did all he could but Wells didn't want to be better.

And I think they realized they were piling it on because they suddenly came out with "He has a great arm though, but..."

Tom Servo
10-01-2009, 02:10 PM
Grand Slam Chris Carpenter. Yesh.

Chris Carpenter hits a Grand Slam Home Run Ughhh................
Kip Wells showing why this is probably his last MLB game.

Sounding like they had good reason to pile on.

They should check his bat for pine tar.

The game is so out of hand they have decided to go with a three man umpiring crew.

Actually the HP ump got hurt on foul ball and had to leave the game.

If Jim Coombs was an umpire he wouldn't need protection when behind the plate.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 02:24 PM
Inning finally over. 5-0 Cards. That was Carpenter's first career home run. Not to pile on now. :)

OK...how many thing Rolen getting beaned was accidental? I'm not watching the game so I didn't see what happened.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 02:41 PM
Wells out and Owings enters the game after the first two Cards get on base in the 3rd. At least the Reds get another bat out of this change.

The Reds need to retaliate if it looked at all intentional. And it needs to be Carpenter or Pujols going down.

HeatherC1212

What happened? I'm at work and can't watch the game today.

Owings doubles with one out in the Reds half of the third.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 02:53 PM
Stubbs singles,Owings to third.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 02:54 PM
Stubbs picked off first by Molina. Rookie mistake there.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 02:57 PM
Sutton walks.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 02:58 PM
Reds and Yankees are tied with the best record since August 23rd. The Padres, of all teams, are next behind them. Go figure.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 02:59 PM
Votto K's to end the inning. 5-0 Cards after three.

HeatherC1212

Bummer for Joey. It sounds like they're hitting not too badly off Carpenter but they're just not getting the runs in. Hopefully they can break through at some point.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 03:07 PM
One walk allowed by Owings but that was it. 5-0 Cards in the 4th.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 03:11 PM
Phillips bounces out to 2nd. One away.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 03:12 PM
Rolen singles and says "Take that Larussa!"

Aw, man. Come on Jay...straighten just ONE of those out just a bit. 2 blasts juuuuuuust foul.

Hard grounder just eats up Ryan at short. E.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 03:18 PM
Ryan misplays a ground ball and the Reds have runners on 1st and 2nd.

nate

That ball was too hot for Ryan's pornstache.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 03:20 PM
Gomes flies out to LF.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 03:21 PM
Corky GO to end the inning. 5-0 Cards after four.

_Sir_Charles_
10-01-2009, 03:21 PM
Corky may handle the staff well, but his bat is simply too anemic for the majors.

mbgrayson

Nice AB by Bruce...ten pitches and repeated fouls vs. Carpenter. Even though it was an error, Jay is showing some good signs there.

Miller bounces out to 3rd. Nothing...

Carpenter is at 79 pitches after 4 innings. At that rate, they are likely to pull him after one or two more innings.

Marty: "The Cardinals are trying to sign Holliday this off season. But Holliday is represented by the Anti-christ"

He may be older & grumpier...but Marty's still funny as hell sometimes. :O)

That comment just made me laugh out loud at work, LOL :laugh: It's true though. Bora$ is so horrible to deal with that I don't know why small market teams draft players represented by him. :eek:

I guess we were due for a whooping.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 03:37 PM
Viola in the game. Work got in the way so I'm guessing the Cards wailed away on Owings.

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 03:44 PM
Reds out in order. 9-0 Cards after five. One more run for the Cards and we can invoke the 10 run rule. :(

Carpenter has 12 career RBIs and 6 of them are from today.

HeatherC1212
10-01-2009, 03:47 PM
Meh, I guess the Reds need to get the bad game out of their system so they can sweep the Pirates this weekend. ;)

And I guess the quest is now for 79 wins instead of 80. Stupid Cards. :(

cumberlandreds
10-01-2009, 04:01 PM
I guess we were due for a whooping.

This is a good old fashioned butt whoopin' today. 12-0 Cards in the 6th.

HeatherC1212
10-01-2009, 04:42 PM
At least this butt whooping gives the starters a bit of a rest and the backups a chance to play before heading into the last series of the year. ;)

What is the record for players used in a nine inning game? They are running everyone out there.

My daughter and I went to the game with my pastor, and even with him there, the Reds didn't have a prayer. It really was a laugher and I've been to games we got a real shellacking and I felt worse, but this one was just funny. I mean, Carpenter hit that grand slam on the his first pitch and it just became bizarre. Well, lets smack the Pirates around a bit and finish on a better note.

redsmetz
10-01-2009, 08:54 PM
So this was Carpenter's 1st home run AND he doubled his career RBI total. Wow, just wow. It was that sort of game.
