Joe Mather burns his old team and delivers a two out, two run single in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Cardinals 3-2.
Motte just blew a save and took a loss at Wrigley tonight. He had 2 out with two runners on, Mather singled to center scoring them both! Those closes losses are huge come September...they were 1 strike away from a win
I like the Cubs when they're beating the Cardinals.Jason Motte blows the save and gets the loss by giving up two runs in in the 9th.
I'm calling a Cubs sweep!!!
I did not understand the pitch selection. The Cards got rid of Mather for a reason... he was a horrible hitter. Motte throws gas yet gets beat on his worst pitch. Unbelievable.....
Even though the Giants had 2 easy victories, hopefuly the fact they had to play a double header today helps the Reds. They did have to use six relievers to pitch six innings.
I think the Cards lost because the CF was playing way too deep. I mean, Soto was running from 2nd for crying outloud. He's not exactly Michael Bourne.
And I believe Mike Shannon would refer to that game winning single as good as a "ham sandwich and a coooool frosty one".
At the end of the day Mather hit a ground ball single up the middle. It happens. It's not like he hit a gapper or something.
The Cards loss gave me a nice little chuckle before bedtime last night. I had followed the bottom of the 8th on mlb gameday, gave up and went to bed, only to check in one last time on my mobile device before turning off the light.
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
