There is no real magic as to why the St. Louis Cardinals jerseys headed into Friday Game 5 one victory away from winning their second consecutive National League Championship Series.
But that all changed on Thursday as the Cards’ cheap Matt Holliday jersey went 2 for 5 with two RBIs while cleanup hitter cheap Allen Craig jersey was 1 for 3 with a sac fly RBI. cheap Yadier Molina jersey, batting fifth, went 2 for 4 with two RBIs.
So in a big game, the Cardinals jerseys clutch guys produced.
Not so for the Giants jerseys.
cheap Buster Posey jersey is their best hitter for both average and power but he went 0 for 4 and is not getting anything good to hit.
cheap Hector Sanchez jersey was behind the plate for Tim Lincecum instead of Posey, who switched to first, and batting fifth he went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts.
cheap Pablo Sandoval jersey was hitless in his first three trips to the plate before banging a two run homer in the ninth in garbage time.
At the plate, the Giants jerseys so called big guns are coming up empty time and again and it is killing them.
do have to get these bats going, Giants jerseys manager Bruce Bochy said following Thursday loss. shutting us down. We get some guys on base, we just missing a big hit here or there.
pitched well tonight. They pitched well yesterday. It would be nice, make life easier if we could get some runs for our staff. the ALCS, Yankees jerseys manager Joe Girardi didn have anybody hitting in his lineup and had to make some tough decisions such as benching Alex Rodriguez and cheap Curtis Granderson jersey.
Bochy isn going to go that route and will keep dancing with the players that got him this far.
players, I believe, you need in the lineup for the way they handle pressure, their energy, how much their teammates respect them and how they play the game, Bochy said when the idea of making changes was brought up. don believe, except on rare occasions, you sit a player like that unless he absolutely lost.
you have a player who gives you everything he got, and you know how much he means to the club, I think you should have him out there. Cardinals jerseys, meanwhile, were able to get it going against Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco relievers that followed, led by the middle of their lineup.
Holliday said it wasn a concern that the 4 5 6 guys hadn produced up but now that they have, it will boost confidence going forward.
don think you ever concerned, he said. you like to get those hits and build, stretch leads or get back in games. But like I said, you facing the toughest pitchers in the League right now. It a battle. It a grind. You facing good pitching. And you trying to have good at bats.
yeah, it was good that we broke through with some big hits and some RBI situations and allowed us to stretch the lead and gave Adam cheap mlb jerseys for sale (Wainright) a little bit of a cushion. And then we were able to build on that lead as the game went on. It never easy, particularly in the post season to get those runs home. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come. VU
The Cardinals jerseys run to glory this season is almost a carbon copy of their route to the World Series last year.
In 2011, the Cardinals jerseys finished with a regular season record of 86 76 which was good enough to gain them entrance as the Wild Card.
However, on Aug. 25 of that season they trailed the Atlanta Braves jerseys by 10 1/2 games in the Wild Card standings. From Aug. 26 Sept. 27, the Cards went on a 21 9 run while the Braves jerseys stumbled along at 10 19.
On the final day of the season, Sept. 28, the Cards beat the Houston Astros jerseys 8 0 while the Atlanta Braves jerseys lost to the Philadelphia Phillies jerseys 4 3 in 13 innings. That put the Cards into the post season.
