St. Louis, Missouri 2021-09-28 22:36:00 –
NS. Louis (KMOV.com)-Adversity is a welcome element of the Cardinals’ magical September execution. Arguably the lowest moment of the team this season, Daniel Vogelbach’s walk-off Grand Slam on September 5, marked the humble beginning of this unlikely turnaround. The difficult situation simply did not disappoint the Cardinals when they tried to dominate the fate of the wildcard by rattling the franchise record streak.
So it’s no wonder that St. Louis had another comeback victory after clinching the post-season berth on Tuesday. After lagging behind Luis Urías’ two-run homer in the top of the fourth inning, the Cardinals attack took immediate action, as if he was taking the time to make a more dramatic plan.
The St. Louis lineup produced six unanswered runs as the Cardinals defeated the Brewers 6-2 and clinched the postseason berth for the third consecutive season.
Dylan Carlson found the Cardinal pulsing aggressively in the bottom of the fourth inning. In a blow with left-handed Brewers right-wing Brandon Woodruff, Carlson threw a deep fly ball toward the right wing. It sneaked into the St. Louis bullpen for the first run of the home team’s game, over the walls and over the flared arms of the jumping Avisail Garcia.
The Cardinals didn’t finish in half of the fourth round as Harrison Bader and Paul DeJong lofted a single pair to a shallow center following Carlson’s long ball. In the absence of anyone, the bottom of Cardinals’ orders gave another example of the team’s recent diversity of attacks. Andrew Knizner, who was inserted late in the lineup after Yadier Molina was scratched by a stiff neck, hit one in the air deep enough for Harrison Bader to advance to third place. This allowed Adam Wainwright, who endured a series of particularly frustrating inefficiencies on the plate earlier this year, to take on a typical squeeze play opportunity and draw the match 2-2.
Wayne Wright turned around, weakened the perfect bunt along first base and helped himself with the plate. He helped himself on the mound as well, offering yet another powerful performance in a season full of them for a 40-year-old veteran starter.
Wainwright recorded his 22nd quality start of the season, even without the familiar battery mate behind the plate. His loneliness interrupted Urías’ four home runs. His 2021 regular season campaign could end with a record of 17-7 and 3.05 ERA. Wayne Wright will be in order to start the final day of the regular season on Sunday, October 3rd, but the Cardinals will definitely postpone the next start until the Wild Card game on Wednesday, October 6th. This will play against the Dodgers or Giants.
Clincher rested on Wayne Wright’s efforts and the relentless attacks he had accumulated on all four to seven inning runs. Paul Goldschmidt started the rally in the right-wing corner with a double, followed by Tyler O’Neill’s RBI and ended up on third base with a defensive mistake by right-winger Garcia.
When the ball accidentally slipped under the glove to allow for a speedy O’Neill hit, Cardinals’ collective line of sight was narrowed by punching a post-season ticket. Nolan Arenado secured the first RBI of the night with a lazy flyball to the center fielder. It was deep enough for O’Neill to extend his advantage to 4-2.
Arenado produced a second RBI when he hit a 34-home run in the season into a visiting bullpen. José Rondón started the previous inning with Adam Wainwright’s pinch hitter at bat.
