Lots of sorting to do with this group. But as we've said in the past about the Cardinals, they had a lot of No. 2 and No. 7 hitters. Can they fill to 3 through 6? Carpenter swinging great right now, but they need Piscotty in particular to settle in.
Rangers will have their hands full with Houston this season.
Super sharp for ESPN tonight. Putting on a show. He is the ace now. Will that push Wainwright even harder this season?
Molina dumps a single to right. If this was somebody other than Piscotty and a runner other than Molina, why not bunt?
No, I believe we are done with that.
Lester has nibbled his way to 100 pitches tonight. Just getting by.
And counting. Carl Edwards ready to come in as needed, it seems.
Nice at bat for Piscotty, laying off junk out of the zone. And Lester is finished.
No, focused on duties here at the stadium.
Kolten Wong out of the doghouse, into the game to pinch hit for Gyorko.
No. He hits into a forceout. But he could clean that up a bit by stealing second to take away the DP.
Grichuk up there hacking with runners at first and third and one out.
Wild pitch ricochets off the back wall and comes all way back to home plate. Kind of hard to score on that!
Grichuk works back from a hole to draw the bases-loaded walk.
Yadier at third, probably a bad plan.
