SUNDAY, August 4, 2019 Surprise:  Cardinals 7 – Yankees 6

 

Highlights:

The game was a battle between 2 pitchers who matched each other pitch for pitch.

Jake Hatchett went 8 innings allowing 6 runs, (5 ER) 6 hits, 8 K’s, and 9 walks.  Fernando Edio equaled Jake with 8 innings pitched allowing 7 runs (6 ER), 8 hits, 8 K’s and 8 walks.

The game winning hit came in the bottom of the 8th with bases loaded and 1 out off the bat of Rene B.

Other players having productive at bats were Jose Navarro (2/2), Juan Castillo 2 RBI’s for the Yankees. Cardinal hitters who stood out were Kevin Latham (2/4), Freddy Henriquez (2/2)

The Cardinals had been struggling during the first half of the season and desperately needed something positive. They had lost too many games in the late innings when victory was so close.  Maybe they can build on this accomplishment to turn around a frustrating season. (Same could be said for the St. Louis Cardinals)
