Several of the games with NL playoff implications are trending the right direction, but most importantly the Brewers need to get the bats going in the second half of this game.

By my calculations if all scores hold true in the division the Brewers would fly up to #2 in the division with a slightly higher winning percentage than the Cards/Reds.

Pretty big game...and not much talk here.


Just doesn’t feel like the end of the season. I heard on the radio that the Brewers had 10 games left and I was borderline shocked. I watch at least some of the game every night and had no clue we were this close to the end.

Wouldn’t the Reds still have a slightly higher winning percentage? And by slightly I mean less than half of a percentage point higher (.4906 versus .4902).

Either way it would be considered a tie in standings.

Disappointed the Pirates pulled Keller after only 84 pitches. Was he hurt? He didn’t give up a hit through 6 innings. Regardless of him being pulled the Cardinals still have a chance to join the Brewers in the dubious category of teams to go hitless in a game this week.

Edit: Of course the Pirates bullpen loads the bases in the 7th with no outs despite still no Cardinals hits (2 walks and a HBP).

Well it appears the Pirates are on the brink of having a 4-run lead evaporate.

It’s Saturday night. Whatever you do, Counsell, don’t use Hader tonight.

Is Bubic any good or is it the usual case of crappy hitting?

It’s gone. If you count on help from teams like the Pirates you’re likely to be disappointed. Be thankful that they’ve already won 4 from the Cardinals this year.

So is Hader coming in for the 8th inning or are they going to ride Williams another inning? A little curious to see how this goes down. Scoring some runs offensively would certainly help take the drama out of these last two innings.

They looked pretty good against the Brewers in several games this year.

Pulling a starter with a no-hitter going at 84 pitches is really odd. Of course that would happen to the Cardinals though.

It might time for a discussion on exactly what are we seeing here with Devin Williams. I mean yeah he's good but my goodness is he just Jefferies from 2018 or is he potentially the next Bruce Sutter.

Opposing teams don't have much of a book on him after only getting a few innings last year. Hitters will eventually figure out his tendencies a bit I imagine. I think 98 with a wicked change to boot is always going to play pretty well, though.

I don’t think it’s even a true “changeup” based on the movement and spin. Some people call it a screwball. I don’t really know but the spin rate on it is well beyond any other changeup on the planet. He’s perfected the pitch it would seem, and having the ability to pair it with 98-mph gas is an impressive combo.

Is it just me or does Taylor look a little bit like Yelich? Not exactly a doppelgänger, but they have some physical similarities.

Dominant again. Just come to expect Williams will completely shut things down. A Badger Mutual Insurance Run or two would be nice here. I don't have near the same faith in Hader.

Dude is definitely a cheat code right now. Glad he's pitching for us, and that he's only 25, and we have him for a long time.

I think he looks more like Sixto Lezcano from the late 70’s
