This isn’t must win (a loss yesterday would have made it that way in my opinion), but quite a turning point either way. Either down 2.0 games...suddenly right there in the thick of it...or still 4 out on the verge of our season being over.

At some point you have to gain games...stellar opportunity here.

Great team win last night. Let’s get another one today please. Biggest game of the season thus far. And biggest start of Houser’s career to this point. Let’s go!!!!!

Tyler Austin is the #5 hitter.

This sounds like a promising day ahead!

I know there are literally no other options but an IF of Perez, Spanginflinger, and Arcia is beyond barf. Throw in Austin at 1B and that's like a AAA no-star squad out there.

And those guys will probably be the difference in the game today, because baseball.

Gotta hope that Braun and Cain are healthy enough to make a difference today.

This line-up should produce 1-2 runs at most, which is why they will knock out a 10 spot today!

I'd like to see Yelich hit 2 bombs and swipe 2 bags today to get that much closer to that 50/40 mark...

Screw it, we don't have the men for it but neither did Jon Snow. Let's go on a Cardinals 2006/2011 and win it all with half a team of crappy players!

While he isn't and never will be an all-star he has given decent ABs for the most part.

Has that ever been done?

It would be remarkable.

No, 50/30 has never been done. That’s what he is shooting for realistically. I doubt he has 10 more steals in him...never know though.

Made me chuckle with the John Snow reference!

Thames is in the lineup against a lefty?

Austin must have gotten scratched. I'm a bit surprised they didn't have Freitas start behind the dish and Grandal at first.

What happened to Rock? Is Hall being groomed to be the next analyst or post game show host?

Counsell said he likes Freitas as a pinch hitter. Another way of saying CC doesn’t like Freitas. Would have been nice to see Freitas get 3-4 AB’s today off the lefty.

2006 not that great...2011 was a legit team.

That being said, both are notably better than our horrendous roster.

Crap. Good to have a lead, but really had a chance to blow it open early.
