Plays like the one where Harrison knocked out Molina are the kind of plays that I hope wake this team up from the lure they've been in. June and July couldn't of been that big a fluke for this team not to finish up August strong and roll through Sept. I hope.

And considering we already knocked out one of their players in a hard collision at the plate, I see no reason why we need to one-up the Cards.


This...We are up 8-0. Take the high road right now. Tomorrow is only about 3 hours away.

The home plate umpire gave warnings to both benches after Harrison was hit. Bob Walk was not happy on the radio side about the warning being issued.

Neither was Hurdle. I think that's what bothered players, coaches, fans alike. Once again a warning gets issued when we get hit before we've done anything. Happened in Cincy as well. It was a little bizarre how they waited to hit Harrison until the 2nd time he came up after the incident. He led off the next inning after everything went down and nothing happened. Then they hit him the next time in a situation where a couple of base runners are on.

Yadier Molina is one of the best players on the Cardinals; certainly one of the most important. He took a big hit and may be out for a while. Even if it was not dirty, Harrison getting hit below the knee in a game that was no longer in contention is (1) expected and (2) not a big deal. Harrison didn't glare at Westbrook or do anything that would suggest that he took offense. As Hurdle said . . . "it was a baseball play." Whether Resop would have also made a "baseball play" is up for debate . . . Hurdle was simply advocating that the warning prevented the Pirates from having that option and also running the risk of having a reliever suspended if he either (1) made a retaliatory "baseball play" or (2) made a mistake pitch.

Westbrook comes up and in? Different story.

Yeah that's what I said as well. Hurdle and the rest of Bucco world were more annoyed about the premature warning (again).

We came out on top in this one in every way. Their guy got hurt, ours didn't. We won the game, in a rout. And Westbrook hit our guy in the middle of a rally, which continued on after the beaning, putting a bunch of runs on his stat sheet.
