Bauer’s Gem for Naught After Late-Inning Homer; Cardinals 2, Indians 1

Bauer’s Gem for Naught After Late-Inning Homer; Cardinals 2, Indians 1

| On 14, May 2015

Trevor Bauer scattered four hits over seven innings and followed Corey Kluber‘s 18-strikeout performance with 10 of his own, but the offense couldn’t score enough and the bullpen couldn’t hold a lead, resulting in a 2-1 loss at Progressive Field on Thursday afternoon. Staked to a 1-0 lead in the top of the eighth inning, Marc Rzepczynski gave up a two-run homer to Matt Carpenter to allow St. Louis to come from behind.

Carpenter’s homer was the first home run by a left-handed batter off Rzepczynski since June 12, 2012. Michael Bourn was 2-for-4 in the game, including a triple in the fourth inning. It was a golden opportunity to score, but Jose Ramirez laid down a poor bunt and Bourn got a late break. He was tagged out between third base and home. The Indians were 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position and left nine runners on base for the game.

    Jose Ramirez masquerading as MLB full-time participant is difficult to digest.

    Perhaps now that the real flaws of the team have been exposed (timely hitting, base running, defense) the (local) media can stop rationalizing all the losses and place some responsibility where it belongs: management, esp srs antoneti/francona et al.

    Just asking': does the gent who coaches (?) third base draw a CHECK, OR IS HE A VOLUNTEER? Please advise.

    Today’s loss= most embarrassing in some time; the entire series very clearly illustrated the difference between a professional baseball organization, and one which is run ‘on the cheap.’. Readers may guess which is which, as I refer to them.
