In the AL, Boston loses. Tampa is tied up in the nightcap after losing the opener. If they can pull it out they will be 1.5 behind the Red Sox.
Braves lost. St. Louis came from behind to win and the Giants are leading. Redbirds now 1.5 out. If the Giants hold on they are 3.5 back.
Come on Brewers and Braves! Get it done.
"Man do I miss the days where were didn't need a calculator and an encyclopedia of baseball metrics to enjoy a baseball game ... - MikeS21" - 8/2/12 game thread
St. Louis has four home games: NYM -1 CHC - 3; three road games: HOU - 3.
Atlanta has three home games: PHI -3; three road games: WSN - 3.
Advantage St. Louis I would guess.
Never dreamed I'd be saying this but Come on Cardinals! Sorry guys I have nothing but the upmost disrespect and hatred for the Atlanta Braves, let me make myself clear, I HATE THE ATLANTA BRAVES, I can't stand the Cardinals, but I hate the Braves, nothing would bring a smile to my face more on this dismal baseball season than seeing the Braves choke on the last weekend of the season when they had it all along!
Cardinals up 2 zip in the third. Why do those guys keep quitting on Tony LaRussa like that?
Sorry but I am hoping for the Cards to win the wildcard, then lets see how they do vs. the Phillies in teh first round...Go Cards...
Cardinals leading 6-2. Mets have the bases loaded in the ninth with out. Ex-Reds farmhand Justin Turner up. Two walks and an error. Full count. Ball four. 6-3. Bases loaded. Jose Reyes. Jason Motte is out after 29 pitches. Rzepcyznski in. Reyes with a bloop single. 6-4. Bases still loaded. One out. First hit of the inning was a bloop. LaRussa must be livid. Salas in to relieve Rzepcyznski. Happy days are here again. Tejada was down 0-2 in the count and fought back to run it full, before doubling. 6-6. Reyes on third, Tejada on second. Intentional walk to load them up. A lot of the big bats are out of the game for St. Louis as LaRussa went for defense.
