Only good thing is that Lynn is up to 39 pitches after only two. Maybe that will pay off later in the game. Two runs will win this game just like the last two nights.

Should Frazier have advanced on the Lutz flyout? If he stays at first, they pitch to Corky.
I still say yes.
Man on third with 1 out......we have to execute and get those runs.
Lutz was at AA where he was not hitting much. There was very little reason he had to fill the roster spot. There was no reason he had to start today.
This is a game vs. the Cards, the team's big rival, in St. Louis. Must we treat it as a tryout camp?
XPaul and Robinson are far more advanced players. Or even use Hannahan and play Frazier in LF for a day.
Lutz is a fine prospect, he'll have his day. I don't see why it is today.
Do intentional walk pitches get counted into the pitch count?
...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.
And I was only saying that in that specific situation, a deep fly ball would've plated Bruce...and Lutz has more power than the other 2. Not saying he's a better player or would have more impact on this game.
2. Rubber game of the series.
3. Why does he have to play as a starter in any game? Why not let him hit off the bench?
4. Team slumping, need to use best hitters.
5. Again, this is not a tryout camp.
I hope Lutz wins the game with a grand slam. Nothing against the young man. The decision making, IMO, is -- well, questionable (to be kind).
