Cardinals Sweep Brewers with 5-2 win on Wednesday

With a victory on Wednesday afternoon at Busch Stadium, the Cardinals completed their second home sweep of the season. The first was against the Dodgers, and this week, St. Louis finished off a three-game sweep of the Brewers with a 5-3 win.

Wednesday’s game was already the 10th meeting between these two teams in 2019 — and the last until August. Thank goodness.

Before the game, the Cardinals activated Harrison Bader off the injured list and optioned Daniel Ponce de Leon to Triple-A...

Daily Farm Report: Palm Beach wins in walkoff fashion

Taking a look at Tuesday’s action

Amarillo Sod Poodles 9 at Springfield Cardinals 6

Kramer Robertson: 2-2, 2B, RBI, 2 BB

Scott Hurst: 3-3, 2 RBI, BB

Shane Billings: 1-1, HR, 2 RBI

Evan Mendoza: 1-4, HR

Springfield’s problem was it couldn’t hold on to any advantage.

Evan Mendoza and Shane Billings both hit a home run in a five-run fourth inning that turned a 5-1 deficit into a 6-5 advantage, but the Cardinals immediately gave it up by surrendering three runs in the top of the fifth....

Every final out of the World Series (from 1980-2016) - A Hunt and Peck

Pretty neat stuff!

I have a quick one for y’all today since the Cardinals play an afternoon game!

Back in 2016 a YouTube accounts called “Crack-N-Egg” posted a video of the final out of every World Series from 1980. Obviously, the video ends with the 2016 World Series — it does not look into the future. There is a lot of neat stuff, but for your convience, I have found all the Cardinals World Series. They can be found at:

0:44 - Cardinals defeat Twins
1:43 - Cardinals lose to Royals

A brief tour through the horror show of Cardinals pitching stats

It’s still pretty early, but YIKES.

Few things distinguish the Enlightened Baseball Fan from the n00b as clearly as the ability to not overreact to the Small Sample Size.

When it comes to the team record, you’ll hear people say things like “I don’t even look at the standings until Flag Day,” or Mother’s Day, or Ramadan... And when it comes to individual stats, it’s probably prudent to wait even longer.

This is prologue to the fact that I had not even opened the Cardinals...

DeJong continues hot streak, Cards beat Brewers 4-3

Ponce De Leon also pitched a solid 5 innings to help lead to victory.

The Cardinals have had a Brewer problem this year, but perhaps it’s just a Miller Park problem. The Cardinals have handled the Brewers just fine at Busch Stadium with two wins in two tries. Go ahead and start the completely unsubstantiated rumors that the Brewers are doing something to the air in their indoor park whenever they bat to help them win baseball games.

Tonight’s game was similar to last night’s game, it...

Carlos Martinez to return as reliever

Cardinals righty Carlos Martinez is planning to work back from the injured list in a relief role, manager Mike Shildt told reporters including Mark Saxon of The Athletic (Twitter link). He’s working back to full health after experiencing shoulder weakness during camp. This is a notable decision for an organization that has a good bit of cash invested in the 27-year-old hurler. ($11.5M this year and at least $24M thereafter.) But it was driven not by the club’s own preferences so much as...

Jordan Hick’s is bringing the heat - A Hunt and Peck

Let’s watch some gifs!

One of my favorite things about Twitter is pitching gifs. Pitchers are better than ever and now with social media, we are able to see them do incredible things in really lovely ways. Jordan Hicks might be one of the most gif-able pitchers in baseball.

We have definitely looks at Hicks gifs before, but now he is setting new records:

If Jordan Hicks' (@Jhicks007 ) last pitch was in fact 104 MPH it's the fastest pitch in baseball this season by about 2 MPH, topping...

Dexter’s Day: Cardinals fly over Brewers, 13-5, on Monday

The outfielder drove in four runs on Monday to highlight the box score from Busch.

A rally after the stretch led the Cardinals to a 13-5 victory over the Brewers on Monday in the series opener at Busch Stadium. With the win, the Cardinals and Brewers are even in the win column with 13 apiece.

(Hey, Christian Yelich went 0-for-4. He entered today with a .500 average and eight home runs in seven games against the Cardinals this season.)

The Cardinals scored a run in the second inning, two in...

Series Preview 4/22-24: Brewers vs. Cardinals

The division rivals meet for their third series of the season — and the first in the Gateway City.

On Monday evening, the Brewers and Cardinals will meet to open up a three-game series at Busch Stadium. The two teams have already played seven games in Milwaukee this season, and their series this week (believe it or not) is their final meeting until late August.

The Brewers enter play with a 13-10 record, and the Cardinals are 12-9. Both teams sit one game behind the 12-7 Pirates in the...

Yadier Molina at the Blues game is a whole mood - A Hunt and Peck

Adam Wainwright was there too!

The St. Louis Blues have advanced to the next round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs! They way they advanced was sort of dramatic — they looked to be at risk of blowing yet another 2-0 series lead. In game five, with the series tied 2-2, the Blues were down two goals before storming back to win, scoring the third and deciding goal with less than 15 seconds left in the game. They scored three more unanswered goals in the sixth and deciding game of the series, going...

Cardinals place Michael Wacha on injured list

The Cardinals announced Monday that right-hander Michael Wacha has been placed on the 10-day injured list due to patellar tendinitis in his left knee. The move is retroactive to April 19. In his place, infielder/outfielder Drew Robinson has been recalled from Triple-A Memphis. The Cardinals did not provide any indication as to how long Wacha is expected to be sidelined. Wacha, 27, hasn’t been at his best through his small sample of four starts in 2019. While he’s sporting a 10.1 K/9 mark...

Should the Cardinals Pursue Gio Gonzalez?

There is a starting pitcher hitting the free agent market today. The Cardinals would do well to at least check in.

Today is Monday, the 22nd of April. Yesterday was Easter Sunday for those who celebrate that sort of thing; I attended the big car show in Forest Park, which has been a tradition for us for quite a few years now, and then ate a bunch of ham. It was a pretty good day, as holidays go.

More importantly — or, at least, more to the point of this column — the fact today is the...

Weekly farm recap 4/15-21: Sosa’s slugging leads Memphis to strong week

Edmundo Sosa looks like he might be finding his power stroke for Memphis.

Welcome back to the weekly farm recap. One affiliate surged back into contention, one maintained some early season success, another two continued their streaky spirals into the cellar.
