    Jeez, Wainwright with the best at-bat yet for STL.

That's an amazing statement."

    Homer went full to pitcher and laid it in there.

    Not good pitching there, gave in to the pitcher. Now a threat.

    Bailey threw Wainwright a fastball right down the middle.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I really don't think Homer did anything wrong there. Just a good job by Wainwright.

    Homer did nothing wrong except giving the pitcher a fat pitch right down the middle.

    Jay singles to center on an 0-2 pitch. 1-0 Cards.

    Fastball right down the middle to Wainwright, followed by a very hittable 0-2 pitch to Jon Jay.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Other option was walking him. I kinda prefer challenging the pitcher to hit the fastball in that position.

    Homer's having problems getting his breaking stuff over.

    Carpenter singles to right. Danger here. Bases loaded for Holliday

    Bailey looks bad today. And Wainwright looks good.

    I don't see a good result for this one.

    Hanigan either had his catching mask painted, or he finally has a new one. That old one had a huge paint chip right on the top/front.

    Completely disagree. And Homer just did it again to Carpenter.

    When the count goes full you make a good pitch. Outside corner. A bit high.

    You don't lay it down the middle fearing the walk.

    If you walk him, you walk him.

    Throwing a fastball right down Broadway on a full count isn't challenging the pitcher. It's capitulating for fear of the walk. And he did it again to Carpenter at 3-2 this inning.
