Brian Walton's news and commentary on the St. Louis Cardinals (TM) and their minor league system

Cardinals-Brewers, Reds-Pirates probable pitchers

With the St. Louis Cardinals having splitting four at Colorado following their discouraging 15-inning loss on Thursday, the club flew to Milwaukee for a weekend series against the Brewers. St. Louis’ lead dropped to one game over Pittsburgh, which plays third-place Cincinnati (two games back), at home.

Here are the probable matchups in Milwaukee:

Fri., Sept. 20: Shelby Miller (14-9, 3.01) vs. Johnny Hellweg (1-4, 8.31) 7:10 p.m. CT, FOX Sports Midwest and KMOX.

Sat., Sept. 21: Lance Lynn (13-10, 4.18) vs. Yovani Gallardo (11-9, 4.29) 6:10 p.m. CT, FOX Sports Midwest and KMOX.

Sun., Sept. 22: Joe Kelly (9-4, 2.74) vs. Wily Peralta (10-15, 4.34) 7:05 p.m. CT, ESPN and KMOX.

Note the original Sunday afternoon game was moved to the evening and will be nationally-televised by ESPN.

And here are the pitchers scheduled in the Steel City:

Fri., Sept. 20: Mat Latos (14-6, 3.14) vs. Francisco Liriano (16-7, 2.29), 7:05 p.m. ET

    I’d like to see the Reds win 2 of 3 of these games. Can’t believe I am saying that.

    Liriano is 0-3 against the Reds this season.
    Burnett is 0-1 with one no decision that the Pirates won
    Locke is 2-0 against the Reds with one no decision. Last time he pitched against them was July 21.

    We have a good record at Miller Park, but after that 15 inning disaster today, I wonder how well the Cardinals are going to do tomorrow night. A sweep would be nice but I think at least 2 of 3 has to happen.

    Hellweg is a terrible pitcher, but the Cards have never seen him before so we all know what that means.
    The Cardinals own Gallardo.
    Peralta is a toss up, he no hit the Cardinals for 6 innings the last time.

    Everyone needs to be on top of their game. This is crunch time. The Pirates are down after losing 3 of 4 to the Padres and the Reds smell blood. We need to stay ahead of the game.

    Its all good.

    Yesterday Todd Helton whiffs to lose the game, today he homers to save the game. He can retire on an upnote.

    We went down four, battled back, though running out of hitters. A lineup without Craig and Adams is not as fun

    One guy who lost ground today was Super Pete. Bases loaded, one out in the 15th, you do not want to ground to SS. Pete may find himself in Memphis for 2014.
