From The Box Score- Pittsburgh Pirates vs St. Louis Cardinals- 7/15/19

What a game!!! Miles Mikolas throws a complete game shut out, leading the way to a Cardinals victory. Let’s get into it!

The Good

  • Five starters had at least 1 hit
  • O’Neil hit TWO HR’s and drove in Four Runs ( He’s on FIRE!)
  • Goldschmidt had a double and an RBI
  • Mikolas threw a COMPLETE GAME Shut Out in 100 Pitches (He finally looked like he did last year)
  • We had more hits and walks (8 hits, 4 walks) than strikeouts (10)
  • Fowler had a hit, walk, and a sac fly
  • Wieters continues to be the biggest bargain of the offseason for us.

****The only bad tonight was on Tyler O’Neil, who had an error. However, his two home runs made up for that.

This team has shown signs of life since the All Star break. Let’s hope it continues. We’ve had two GREAT pitching performances back to back.

On a less positive note, Bob Gibson is currently being treated for Pancreatic Cancer. Look his numbers up. He is the greatest pitcher this team has ever produced. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bob and his family. Heres to a full and speedy recovery. Be sure to look for my article on him and his greatness dropping soon.
