2011 Cardinals team celebrating its NL pennant and remarked

Messaggioda elvafeng » 03/08/2017, 7:37

After a series of pictures shared on social media, ranging from nostalgic to pointed, brought both attention and speculation to Yadier Molina’s frustration, the Cardinals’ catcher left little doubt what he was trying to say Wednesday.

He had a game worth a thousand words.

Molina hit two home runs http://www.cardinalsfanaticsjersey.com/matt-bowman-jersey-c-1.html, piloted Luke Weaver through his longest start in the majors, and gave the Cardinals a head start toward a 5 4 victory against Milwaukee. A few days removed from going public with the defense of how he was feeling on the field and how often he intended to play, Molina had three hits and a career best 10 total bases, while also remaining agile enough behind the plate to save a run or two for Weaver. Kolten Wong’s two run double proved the difference, but after the game he raved about how much he liked Molina’s performance.

“He’s our captain. He’s our leader,” Wong said. “The St. Louis Cardinals is Yadier Molina. We’re going to hop on his back whenever he’s going. He’s our man. That just goes to show when he goes, we go.”

The second place Brewers got a two run homer in the eighth before closer Trevor Rosenthal struck out three and got a four out save. That made a winner of Weaver 1 1 , who threw a career high 6 1/3 innings, struck out eight and got the Cardinals back to the brink of .500. The third place Cardinals 53 54 will try for a sixth time in the past two months to break even on the season and escape from a losing record. That has fed some of the frustration swirling around the team, be it in the clubhouse, in the front office, or in the standings.

In the days leading up to Wednesday’s win Matt Carpenter Jersey, the Cardinals stirred headlines by publicly discussing their lack of a deal at the trade deadline and their insistence that any conversation with Molina about his Instagram posts would be done privately. Molina used the picture sharing site, he said, to “defend” himself against the inference from the manager that he needed a break or wasn’t running the bases well. He wrote that he trained to play a “champion” workload, and if he was tired he would say so, http://www.cardinalsfanaticsjersey.com/stephen-piscotty-jersey-c-25.html not someone else. He also shared photos of the 2011 Cardinals team celebrating its NL pennant and remarked how few of his teammates are still around, and he shared a photo of himself with former third base coach Jose Oquendo.

He declined to share his inspiration.

Consider Wednesday punctuation.

Fuming during a game over the weekend that he did not change at the plate, Molina seized on the series in Milwaukee. He had an RBI single to produce one of the Cardinals’ two runs on Tuesday, and the second time he saw Brewers lefty Brent Suter on Wednesday he pounced. Molina hit a one out homer into the Cardinals’ bullpen beyond right field to break a 1 1 tie. He added to that lead when he hit a solo home run into the left field seats two innings later. He told Fox Sports Midwest after the game that was “just trying to take good at bats.”

After Molina’s homer, a series of singles followed and then, with two outs, Wong added the decisive runs with a double.

“Knowing that I’m the leadoff hitter, I’m going to get chances,” said Wong, who was a last minute sub at leadoff when Matt Carpenter experienced soreness in his right hip. The Cardinals expect him back Thursday. “I’m going to get chances to change the game http://www.cardinalsfanaticsjersey.com/matt-holliday-jersey-c-24.html, somehow, to help the team win.”


Starting for a second time in a week as Adam Wainwright’s replacement in the rotation, Weaver pitched to his strengths and found a few more.

A single pitch led to all four runs and a loss against Weaver last week vs. Arizona, but it was the walks leading up to that grand slam that he had to learn from. In the first inning Wednesday, Eric Thames ripped a 93 mph fastball for a solo homer and a 1 0 lead. That did not drive Weaver to the edges of the strike zone or make him reluctant to challenge hitters. If anything, he amped up his approach.

“If you throw a pitch like that and ease back just a little bit, you learn, just let it rip,” Weaver said. “I had to believe in it.”
