Drew Stubbs 8
Brandon Phillips 4
Joey Votto 3
Scott Rolen 5
Jay Bruce 9
Orlando Cabrera 6
Jonny Gomes 7
Ramon Hernandez 2
Johnny Cueto RHP

St Louis supposed to get hammered by rain. 25 MPH wind.

Weak Defense on the left side of the field tonight with Cabrera, Rolen and Gomes.

Could be quite a few singles and doubles to that side tonight. I just hope they are error-free on that side and convert the plays that they can get to.

Cueto has pitched absolutely horribly all season.

He really needs to step up himself tonight.

A "very good" outing for him would be 5 innings and 4 runs given up. (while that would suck for most people). He's only pitched 10 innings in 3 starts in St. Louis.

What I want to see is 5+ innings with 3 runs given up, which still isn't good, but for Cueto (right now), it would be fantastic.

How does he throw (88mph) changup after (88mph) changeup without throwing any fastballs? How can that be effective?

RF John Jay, looking for his first major league hit (3 AB's so far)....batting 2nd tonight.

Kingspoint
04-30-2010, 09:29 PM
Only 3 Left-handers in tonight's lineup against the RH-pitching Cueto and one of them is this rookie John Jay.

Two Groundouts to Phillips and a Flyout to Stubbs. Excellent 1st Inning by Cueto.

Bruce leads off the 2nd with a opposite field double to the wall off of a changeup. You can sit on that changeup right now of Penny.

Penny said about his last outing that the Giants made it easy for him by being too aggressive. He was never behind in the count with them. (He shut them out for 7.2 innings.)

Kingspoint

Cabrera moves him over unconventionally to 3rd with a groundout to the left side of the infield. 1 out.

Gomes follows with the 2nd Out on pitch number 2, a curveball, that he sends to shallow Right.

Bruce tags and is gunned down at the plate from a throw by Rookie John Jay to Molina. Double-play, end of threat.

Question for those of you with a TV view. Should he have gone, or was this another of a long line of 3rd-Base Coaching mistakes for the REDS?

3 DP's in 4 innings by the Cardinals' Defense. That's pretty good.

But, it also goes to show that Cueto's pitching better than Penny, who's been able to get out of several jams already.

Man, I will be sour if this gets rain-shortened..but, I can handle this. This is argueably the best we have looked all year. Yes, we swept Houston, but St Louis is one of the best in baseball. Cueto has pitched outstanding thru 5 innings so far, and we are hitting against St. Louis' best pitcher so far (yes i know Carpenter is better, but Penny is doing work this year).

If the home team is "ahead", then the results count for the top half of an inning, and thus 4-1/2 innings would be a complete game. But, if the home team is behind, you go back to the last "completed" inning, and that would be the 5th right now.

SUSPENDED GAMES.
(a) A game shall become a suspended game that must be completed at a future date if the game is terminated for any of the following reasons:
(1) A curfew imposed by law;
(2) A time limit permissible under league rules;
(3) Light failure or malfunction of a mechanical field device under control of the home club. (Mechanical field device shall include automatic tarpaulin or water removal equipment);
(4) Darkness, when a law prevents the lights from being turned on;
(5) Weather, if a regulation game is called while an inning is in progress and before the inning is completed, and the visiting team has scored one or more runs to take the lead, and the home team has not retaken the lead;

Both teams have to bat equal number of times unless the home team has a lead and its past 5 innings.

After 5 innings its basically view the same way a 9 inning game is viewed.

If the rain out happens and the home team hasnt batted as many times as the road team, and they are losing, the game is suspended till a later date.

If the home team is "ahead", then the results count for the top half of an inning, and thus 4-1/2 innings would be a complete game. But, if the home team is behind, you go back to the last "completed" inning, and that would be the 5th right now.

Cards still have to bat, or we lose.

Absolutely not true. If the Reds hadnt scored, the game could be called after waiting an appropriate amount of time with the Cards winning. But since the Reds scored and took the lead, the game will be resumed at a later time, probably tomorrow, with the Reds ahead 3-2.

From baseball-almanac.com:


(d) A called game ends at the moment the umpire terminates play.

EXCEPTION: If the game is called while an inning is in progress and before it is completed, the game becomes a SUSPENDED game in each of the following situations:

(1) The visiting team has scored one or more runs to tie the score and the home team has not scored;

(2) The visiting team has scored one or more runs to take the lead and the home team has not tied the score or retaken the lead.

Rule 2 would apply to tonight's game. It would be suspended until tomorrow.

I remember a game against the Expos back in the 80's that was suspended. It was the last of a three game series so they couldnt complete it the next day. It wasnt made up for a couple of months when both teams had a day off. They played from the middle of the 7th and only played 2 1/2 innings. Was a weird day. Wish I could remember how many people showed up for a 2 1/2 inning game. lol

All they said was it would be played before the 1PM game tomorrow. I don't know if that means the suspended game would start at 1 or they would have the suspended game over by the 1pm starting time. I would have to think they would start the suspended at 1pm and the second game would start whenever it was over.

To be honest that pitch was below the knees and a bit off the plate....a hitter isn't gonna do anything with that pitch anyway. That was a 2.5 hr rain delay call.
