Cardinals fall to Mets 3-2; Wacha wicked, wild in windy NY

Michael Wacha lost his hat and the game, but he gave a glimpse of a beautiful future in tonight's exciting, frustrating, exhilirating, irritating tilt. There's the old saying about seeing something you've never seen before in every ballgame, no matter how many games you've watched. I saw a good half-dozen tonight. Wacha Any discussion of what transpired this evening needs to start with Michael Wacha's final line: 4 IP, 3H, 2ER, 5BB, 10K Each of the first 9 outs Wacha recorded were via strikeout.

Kolten Wong and his slump

The Cardinals recently benched Kolten Wong for three out of four games, including two against righthanded pitchers. Wong had not shown great signs of struggling prior to his benching, but if the Cardinals were basing their decisions on the results over sixteen plate appearances, the benching appears premature. On April 13, 2014, the season was looking pretty good for Kolten Wong. Coming off a two-hit game that increased his hitting streak to six games, Wong was hitting .279/.354/.349. The power was not there, but with a wOBA of .311 and a wRC+ of 97, the Cardinals were getting average...
