That was a pathetic effort by Latos...he pitched lazy this inning and he pouted...He gave up 3 home runs if you count the fact that Craig took him deep twice...he is just so danged easy to get frustrated with.
You didnt say he jacked him out of the park twice, you said, and I quote...He gave up 3 HOME RUNS....
I'm not looking for your body of work. If you didn't see Craig jack Latos deep twice in that at-bat, then I give you a pass. If you saw the same at-bat I saw, then you're just being needlessly argumentative.
He pulled a pitch foul that had HR distance....Latos located it elsewhere and he hit it hard where it was pitched for a HR. At some point you give the hitter credit. It's not like some of the Reds dead pull hitters yanking the sake pitch foul and getting the same pitch for a homer. This Cardinals team has a great offense with minimal holes. They are patient and hit it where it's pitched...they've been there.
Latos was very good for 5 and not good in the 6th.
