St. Louis Cardinals
St. Louis’ weekend sweep of Atlanta concluded with a 14-inning thriller on Sunday. The Cardinals flew out to a 4-0 lead only to see the Braves score in the sixth, seventh and eighth to tie the game.
Both bullpens held steady for five innings before Tommy Pham homered off of Josh Collmenter. It was Pham’s second home run of the game and third of the season, which all came in this series. He’s been playing for an injured Dexter Fowler, though he started in left field on Sunday.
So look who’s 16-14 after their horrid start: the St. Louis Cardinals. They’ve made a lot of people look bad for counting them out over the years.
Carlos Martinez finally got a win in his last start to move to 1-3. He’s pitched better than that this season, though. Martinez’s ERA is 3.75 and he’s got 43 strikeouts in six starts.
The Marlins, meanwhile, almost got swept over the weekend but won on Sunday to avoid an empty series with the Mets.
The entire pitching staff needed just 111 pitches to complete nine shutout innings at Citi Field so they will be fairly well rested coming back home.
Adam Conley successfully bounced back from nine earned runs in less than two innings against Pittsburgh at the very end of April. He tossed 5.1 and gave up two runs against Tampa Bay in Miami’s previous series.
The lefty has walked three in each of his last two starts, compared to just seven strikeouts. At one time a promising young lefty, Conley is now 26 and still trying to figure it all out.
