In games where the St. Louis Cardinals hit homers and pitch well
Boqvist Blackhawks Jersey , they generally walk off the field with
But on nights where they can’t connect with the long ball, they don’t
consistently make up for it with situational hitting or defense. Friday night’s
5-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves was another example of that trend rearing its
After failing to cash in leadoff walks in the bottom of the first against
Braves starter Julio Teheran, St. Louis simply couldn’t crack the code. It
eventually caught up with the Cardinals as they were held to one run for their
second straight game.
For St. Louis (42-38) to even the series Saturday night at Busch Stadium,
the Cardinals will have to do a better job of converting runners in scoring
position into runs while not giving up extra outs defensively. The Cardinals’
three errors Friday night marked their 17th multi-error game in 80 games.
St. Louis is on a pace to commit more than 130 miscues this year, continuing
a three-season trend of below-average defense. Permitting good teams like
Atlanta (46-34) four or five outs in an inning is a recipe for disaster.
The Braves started a 10-game road trip with a positive result. Third baseman
Johan Camargo was the offensive star, going 3-for-5 with two runs and a two-run
double off Jordan Hicks in the eighth that broke open a 1-0 game.
“Baseball is all about its ups and downs,” Camargo said. “For me, it’s all
about maintaining the focus and just staying the path.”
Atlanta essentially heeded Camargo’s credo, bouncing back from consecutive
series losses against last-place teams Baltimore and Cincinnati. It will turn
to left-hander Max Fried (0-2, 4.09 ERA) on Saturday to secure a series
Fried is replacing veteran right-hander Brandon McCarthy Josh Rosen
Color Rush Jersey , who was put on the 10-day disabled list
Thursday with a knee injury. A former first-round pick of San Diego, Fried will
make his first start since going five innings and giving up one earned run on
May 28 in a no-decision against the New York Mets.
It will be the second career appearance against the Cardinals for Fried, who
last year tossed a scoreless inning in relief against them.
Right-hander Luke Weaver (4-6, 4.59) will look for his second straight win
for St. Louis. Weaver shrugged off a rough first inning Sunday in Milwaukee to
grab an 8-2 win, fanning a season-high nine over 5 2/3 innings while yielding
two runs off five hits and two walks.
Weaver needed 32 pitches to make it through a two-run first inning, but
started finding the range with his off-speed pitches. That made his fastball
play bigger, and he rolled through the middle innings while the Cardinals
bombed Jhoulys Chacin out of the box with five runs in the fourth and two more
in the fifth.
“The first inning, it was like, ‘Here we go again.’ It means a lot for him
to right the ship,” St. Louis manager Mike Matheny told mlb.com.
Sutter Capitals Jersey , who snapped a seven-start winless streak
in Milwaukee, will make his first career appearance against the Braves.
Al Michaels has a similar level of anticipation heading into his 10th Super
Bowl broadcast as he had the first time he worked the biggest stage on
television 30 years ago.
Michaels is set to join Pat Summerall as the only play-by-play announcers to
call at least 10 Super Bowls when he works next weekend’s game in Minneapolis
between New England and Philadelphia.
”It’s every bit as exciting and even more so in a way,” Michaels said in a
phone interview. ”As you get older and you get the opportunities to do these
events, you probably savor it more.
”When I look at guys like Tom Brady and Drew Brees, as they get older, I
think they begin to appreciate and savor the opportunities more because you’re
closer to the end than you are to the beginning and you never know how many
more you have left.”
The 73-year-old Michaels is in no hurry to give up the microphone on NBC’s
”Sunday Night Football” broadcast, which is on target to be television’s
highest-rated show for a record seventh straight year, passing the mark set by
With a comfort level with his broadcast team led by executive producer Fred
Gaudelli, director Drew Esocoff and analyst Cris Collinsworth, Michaels is
having as much fun as he ever had since becoming the lead announcer for ABC’s
”Monday Night Football” in 1986.
Michaels points to advice from former Buffalo coach Marv Levy about never
considering retirement. He could be in position to stay long enough to match
Summerall’s record of 11 Super Bowl play-by-play broadcasts.
”If you think about retiring http://www.eaglesauthorizedshops.com/authentic-paul-worrilow-jersey
, you’ve already retired,” Michaels said. ”That rings in my ears. I have a
great amount of passion for what I do. I love what I do. I work with the
greatest people I’ve ever worked with in this business top to bottom. I still
get excited going to the games. I love walking into a stadium. I love
It’s been a remarkable career for Michaels, who has called eight World
Series, including the Earthquake Series in 1989; nine Olympics, including the
”Miracle on Ice” in 1980; and now is preparing for his 10th Super Bowl.
He still remains at the top of his game in his sixth decade of work.
”Working with Al has been a professional highlight and all-out blast,” said
Gaudelli, who will work his sixth Super Bowl with Michaels next week.
”I’ve been watching sports all my life and in my opinion no one can capture
the moment quite like Al can. It’s never rehearsed or predetermined – he sees
it, calls it and somehow the words are perfect. He never ceases to amaze
Michaels’ first Super Bowl came following the 1987 season when Doug Williams
led Washington to a 42-10 victory. Several of his others have included some of
the most dramatic finishes in Super Bowl history, from Scott Norwood’s missed
field goal for Buffalo in 1991, to Mike Jones’ tackle of Kevin Dyson at the
1-yard line on the final play to preserve St. Louis’ title in 2000
Miller Color Rush Jersey , to Eli Manning’s second comeback drive
to beat Tom Brady six years ago.
But two stand out the most. The first was in 2009, when Pittsburgh’s James
Harrison returned an interception 100 yards for a score on the final play of
the first half, and then Santonio Holmes caught the winning TD for the Steelers
in the final minute of a comeback win over Arizona.
Then in the most-watched television event in U.S. history three years ago,
the Patriots won their fourth title when Malcolm Butler intercepted a pass from
Russell Wilson at the goal line when it looked as if the Seahawks were poised
to score the go-ahead TD in the closing seconds.
Those are the moments no broadcaster can ever prepare for, and only the most
accomplished can handle as adroitly as Michaels has over the years.
”John Madden once had a great line. We prepare like crazy. We prepare for
any eventuality. But you get to the booth, and as John would say, all of a
sudden a game breaks out,” Michaels said.
”The game has to come to you. You can’t go to the game. We have a million
things we can talk about, but if you start talking about them and they’re not
germane to the game, the listener will find that cacophonous. You have to blend
what you know with what’s going on in the game.”
One aspect Michaels didn’t have to deal with for most of his career but has
risen up this season has been social justice protests during the national
anthem. He realizes it’s a delicate balance for an announcer because many fans
will be offended by networks showing or talking about the protests
Color Rush Jersey , while others will be equally as upset if they
While no Eagles or Patriots are currently protesting, Michaels is prepared
for any scenario.
”We’re there to report what happens,” he said. ”If there is something that
does take place, you have to cover it. You don’t have to editorialize about it.
You report here is what happened and you don’t lecture people on this is bad or
this is good. People tune in to watch the game and we’ll bring them the
