Could be but I'm hesitant to assume it happens again today because the Cards have been pretty good against lefties so far this season, and Corbin is one.
I don't think the guys are kicking up their feet after a big game and thinking they've made it or anything, I think you are just going to get boom and bust sometimes when you have so many inconsistent parts of your offense that are searching all at once.
DeJong is searching; maybe he broke out last night?
Goldschmidt had been struggling, especially against righies.
Carpenter, well, we've covered that.
And the outfield is very hard to predict right now.
Power potential is there. We've seen it. Sustainability is a different story, so we have observed the swings.
Can I point out one good thing about the offense?
We all wanted more power, right?
There are some signs of it.
Last season the Cardinals scored six or more runs 16 times in 58 games. That's 28 percent.
So far this season they have scored six or more runs six times in 16 games. That's 38 percent.
