Game #36: Cardinals 10, Mets 4

Well, at least Imagine Dragons seemed to have fun.

The Cardinals jumped on Dillon Gee early and would not get off, as the Mets dropped another in St. Louis, 10-4.

The Bad Stuff:
  • Most of it, but specifically:
    • Dillon Gee gave up six runs (five earned) in four innings; his ERA is now a paltry 6.13.
    • Robert Carson gave up four more runs in two innings, including a three-run shot to Carlos Beltran in the 5th.
    • New York only managed six hits off STL starter John Gast in his major-league debut and didn't get any off the Redbird bullpen.
The Good Stuff:
  • Daniel Murphy had two more hits and a run to get his average up to .279.
  • Marlon Byrd socked a two-run homer in the 6th to go along with a double earlier off Gast.
  • Brandon Lyon and Greg Burke (he's back up?) kept the Cardinals from getting too far into double digits in the 7th and 8th.
Final Analysis:
Welp...we just don't have enough good players. But tomorrow is another day; we could win tomorrow.

What else do you want me to say? I refuse to subscribe to the vitriol.
