2014 MLB game #127: Cards at Phillies: Fri 8/22 


Adam Wainwright (15‐7, 2.40) vs. Kyle Kendrick (5‐11, 4.90) 6:05 p.m. CT. FOX Sports Midwest and KMOX.

 

Note: This was to be Shelby Miller’s day, but the Cards moved him back a day and kept Wainwright on regular rest.

Despite Wainwright's relative struggles this month (he's 2-2 with a 5.13 ERA) this is a pretty favorable matchup for us. Adam is 5-1 with a 2.32 ERA against the Phillies in his career. And Kendrick has pretty much been terrible lately.

Maybe Mike will give Garcia the start to teach Wong not to make errors in the ninth inning.

Lineup: Carpenter, Wong, Holliday, Adams, Peralta, Jay, Taveras, Cruz, Wainwright.

Overcast and upper 70s in Philly.

Seems like Cruz has become Wainwright's (and possibly Lackey's) personal catcher with Yadi out.

Matheny told us as much in his pre-game comments. He says he likes how the two (Cruz and Wainwright) are working together.

I would bat Jay second currently he is an on base machine.

Tight strike zone from the ump so far.

Adams his first dinger in about a month to make it 4-1.

And now Ace Wainwright has the bases loaded and nobody out.  I'm beginning to think Wainwright is about our 3rd best pitcher anymore, behind Lynn and Lackey.

The game is tied. Waino is really struggling lately. I am not sure why Wong was positioned where he was for Howard's at bat. The ball was hit hard but it should have been caught if Wong were in better position.

I think it's about time to give Waino a few starts off. We need him strong if we are going to play more than 1 game in the playoffs.

Well I guess both pitchers are terrible tonight. Wainwright has been BAD since the All Star break. Although I will say the strike zone hasn't done his curveball any favors tonight.

Error by Adams gives Philly the lead 5-4.

Wainwright hasn't been good since the all-star break. He throws a lot of pitches over the course of the season, which had me scratching my head as to why they accelerated him into tonight's spot.
