    I was sad to see Gomber go because I never think a team can have too many LHP starters or relievers. I am happy the Cardinals got Arenado though because he’s a legendary talent.

    Speaking of left handed pitching, a guy in the Cardinals organization I am and a lot of others are high on made his AAA debut last night for the Memphis Redbirds. It was his first start above A ball. Matthew Liberatore is the Cardinals number 1 prospect and threw 6 IP, allowing 5 hits, 2 ER, walking none, and striking out 5. He is only 21. He was drafted 16th overall in the 2018 draft by the Rays. He was part of the trade to St. Louis that sent Jose Martinez and Randy Arozorena to Tampa Bay. The kid has some electric stuff. He has a classic pitcher’s build at 6’5”, 200 lbs. He had a good fastball with sink that sits in the low 90s and tops at 95-96 mph with a devastating change up and good 12-6 curveball. He’s also working on a slider. I think he’ll be a front line starting pitcher for the Cardinals pretty soon, like this year or next.
    Matthew Liberatore(Lefty) is the Cardinals #1 prospect and the #5 prospect is Zack Thompson who is a lefty as well. Both guys may reach the majors in 2022. A team cannot have too many lefthanded starters. Nolan Gorman(IF) the #2 prospect and Ivan Herrara(C) the #3 prospect are not off to a good starts, but the season has just started. Most baseball people think Herrera is going to be Yadi's replacement when he retires.

    The St. Louis Cardinals got back into the win column tonight by defeating the Colorado Rockies 5-0 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri. The win pushed the record of the Cardinals to 19-14. The 19 wins are tied for most in the MLB with the Boston Red Sox and Oakland Athletics. The Cardinals are now 2 games up on the Milwaukee Brewers for first place in the NL Central.

    Jack Flaherty did it all for the Cardinals tonight. He got the win to improve to 6-0 with a 2.83 ERA by tossing 7 shutout innings, allowing just 3 hits while walking 1 and striking out 6. He also was 1-2 at the plate with a solo HR. Great NL pitcher performance from him on the bump and at the dish! Flaherty’s 6 wins on the mound are good for tops in the MLB, 2 better than anyone else in the game.

    Harrison Bader also hit his 3rd HR of the season. Dylan Carlson and Nolan Arenado were both 2-4 at the plate and are both batting .283 on the season.

    The Cardinals and Rockies continue their 3 game series tomorrow at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals will send Carlos Martinez to the hill opposite Chi Chi González. Game time is set for 1:15 pm CT.

    Let’s Go Cardinals!

    Cincinnati Reds' Wade Miley confounds Cleveland Indians for 2021's 4th no-hitter

    CLEVELAND -- Wade Miley pitched baseball's second no-hitter in three days -- and fourth already this season -- leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 win Friday night over the Cleveland Indians, who were no-hit for the second time in a month.

    Miley (4-2) relied on breaking pitches and his experience of 11-plus major league seasons to baffle the Indians and throw Cincinnati's first no-hitter since Homer Bailey in 2013.

    "It feels surreal,'' the 34-year-old said.

    The left-hander shook off an 83-minute rain delay to start the game and followed Baltimore's John Means, who no-hit Seattle on Wednesday, to continue an early run of pitching gems in 2021 -- quickly becoming the Year of the No-No.

    San Diego's Joe Musgrove started the `21 no-hitter club by throwing the first in Padres' history on April 9. Five days later, Chicago White Sox left-hander Carlos Rodon blanked the Indians, just missing a perfect game when he hit a batter in the ninth inning.

    Arizona's Madison Bumgarner pitched a seven-inning no-hitter against Atlanta on April 25, but that one isn't recognized as official because it didn't go nine innings.

    This is the earliest in a calendar year there have been four no-hitters since 1917, when the fourth was thrown on May 5 and the fifth on May 6, and only the second season overall in MLB history to have four no-hitters before the end of May, according to ESPN Stats & Information. It's no wonder, with hitters entering Friday batting a record-low .233 this season.

    For their part, the Indians joined a dubious list by becoming the 16th team to be no-hit twice in the same season. It most recently happened to Seattle in 2019.

    Miley walked one and struck out eight on 114 pitches.

    "He put on a clinic,'' Indians manager Terry Francona said.

    While Miley was blanking the Indians, Zach Plesac did the same to the Reds for eight innings before Cincinnati pushed three runs across in the ninth, helped by closer Emmanuel Clase's throwing error and a balk.

    In the ninth, Miley retired pinch-hitter Rene Rivera on a lazy fly to right, struck out Cesar Hernandez and then retired Jordan Luplow on a grounder to third before he was mobbed by the Reds, who encircled him and danced across the grass.

    Miley came in just 1-4 in eight career starts against the Indians, who were batting only .213 as a team. But Cleveland has been as hot as any team, riding a five-game winning streak and winning nine of 11 to take over first in the AL Central.

    Working quickly on a cool, damp night, Miley made quick work of the Indians.

    He coasted through five inning and didn't allow a baserunner until the sixth, when Cleveland's Amed Rosario reached on second baseman Senzel's fielding error and then went to second on his throwing error.

    Miley also allowed a walk in the inning, but regrouped by getting Luplow on a liner to left.

    Franmil Reyes came the closest to getting a hit for the Indians, but his hard smash in the fifth inning was right at shortstop Kyle Farmer, who knocked it down and had plenty of time to throw out the slow-footed slugger.

    It was the Reds' 17th no-hitter since 1892.

    "For something like this to happen, I don't have the words,'' Miley said.

    Flaherty with 2 outs, gave up 3 hits in the first inning but some bad baserunning by Charlie Blackmon got him out to the inning with no runs scored. After the first inning, he didn't give up another hit and he only walked one batter. Great pitching from the Cardinal's Ace.

    GoRedbirds.

    Cards hang on for a 9-8 win. Good to see Molina back, and hitting well.

    Good win today to take the series over the Rockies. Going for the sweep tomorrow with Wainwright on the hill.

    Alex Reyes got the save today which was his 10th in 10 opportunities. That’s good for 2nd in the MLB. He did give up an earned run which raised his ERA from 0.00 to 0.53. I think he has found his niche. I just pray he stays healthy. The young man had been through a lot with injuries in his young career. It’s good to see him finally capitalizing on his shot. He is still just 26.

    20-14 now. 2.5 games up on the 2nd place Chicago Cubs who have won 5 in a row.

    Let’s Go Cardinals!
