Cardinals news and notes: Gyorko, Robert, and the Giants

Here is some baseball-related content from yesterday Some happenings happened in baseball. Here is what happened. I wrote about Jedd Gyorko, the person about whom I commissioned this artwork, and how while he is not a great defensive infielder at any position, his ability to be serviceable at several spots makes him additionally valuable in the Matt Carpenter mold. Josey Curtis wrote about Thursday’s minor league happenings, including Stephen Piscotty’s rehab stint. The lil scooter wrote about Luis Robert and the Cardinals’ candidacy for signing him. One of my personal favorite...

Bullpen Squanders Solid Wacha Start, Fowler Heroics

Bullpen Squanders Solid Wacha Start, Fowler Heroics

Wacha spins six shutout innings, bullpen coughs it up, Dexter Fowler seals the deal, bullpen coughs it up again Two fairly legendary, widely predicted divisional seconds face off tonight: Cardinals vs. Giants. So far so good for the Cardinals, who true to form, hold second place in the NL Central on the back of devil magic and solid homegrown run prevention. Not so for the Giants though, who are earnestly racing the Padres for fourth place in the NL West, nine full games behind the third-place Diamondbacks. Never mind that Mac Williamson and Eduardo Nunez, who don’t actually exist outside...

Giants notes: On the pitchers behind Friday’s comeback win

ST. LOUIS — Some Giants pitching notes from Friday night's 6-5 comeback victory over the Cardinals: Before the trip, manager Bruce Bochy told reporters the starting pitchers need to be better on the road if the Giants were to improve on their 6-15 record. Matt Moore took that to heart, holding the Cardinals to two runs in six innings to lower that 10.50 road ERA. Moore credited a good curveball and changeup to go with his fastball. Bryan Morris pitched a 1-2-3 eighth for the win, striking out Yadier Molina and Aledmys Diaz to start the inning. The 30-year-old former Pirate and Marlin...

Giants come back in ninth again, beat Cardinals

Giants come back in ninth again, beat Cardinals

It took 730 days for the Giants to come back in the ninth inning. It took nine days for them to do it again. Single. Single. Double. That’s how the Giants turned a ninth-inning deficit into a ninth-inning lead. Brandon Belt got a single. Brandon Crawford got a single. Eduardo Nuñez got a double. The Giants were down by one, and there were two singles and a double. That’s how they won by a run. There were two runs scored on those three hits. To clarify: The first single put a runner on first base. The second single moved that runner to third while also putting an additional runner on...

Giants rough up Cards bullpen
