  • GDT: Cardinals (96-60) v. Brewers (77-77)

    Will Jeff Suppan pitch a no-hitter today? You never know. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ph34r.gif[/img]

    QUOTE
    Cards hope to avoid sweep
    St. Louis (96-60) at Milwaukee (77-77), 1:05 p.m. CT

    The Cardinals play their last regular-season road game Sunday, when they wrap up a 10-game trip at Miller Park against the Brewers. St. Louis will next play on the road on Oct. 8 in Game 3 of the National League Division Series.
    It hasn't been a particularly successful trip for the Cards, who have gone 3-6 thus far. They've lost five out of six for the first time all year and dropped back-to-back series for the first time this season. With the NL Central title secured, it's understandable if St. Louis has lost a bit of an edge, but it's time for the Redbirds to get sharp with postseason play starting in just over a week.

    Jeff Suppan will be on the mound for St. Louis. With two starts likely remaining, Suppan still has a chance at topping his career-high 16 wins, set last year. He's 6-3 with a spiffy 3.06 ERA since the All-Star break. Suppan has increased his strikeout rate and dropped his hit rate in the second half, and that tends to be a successful combination. He's also pitched well against the Brewers this year.

    Suppan's opponent is left-hander Doug Davis, who has pitched well against just about everybody but the Cardinals this year. Milwaukee needs to go 4-4 over its final eight games to finish with a .500 record for the first time in more than a decade.

    Pitching matchup
    STL: RHP Jeff Suppan
    • 15-10, 3.72 ERA in 2005
    • 3-0, 1.71 ERA vs. MIL in 2005

    MIL: LHP Doug Davis
    • 11-10, 3.91 ERA in 2005
    • 0-3, 6.87 ERA vs. STL in 2005

    Player to watch
    Albert Pujols loves seeing Davis' name appear on the lineup card. Pujols is 7-for-14 against Davis with two home runs and three doubles for a 1.143 slugging percentage. He's also walked four times against the left-hander and struck out just once.

    Quotable
    "It doesn't matter who they plug in, they seem to all come through. Whoever they stand in there is going to give you a good at-bat and probably put a good swing on the ball. I don't think you can say it's all players. Teams are sharp for Tony [La Russa] all the time. He always has his team ready to play, no matter who he puts in there." -- Brewers catcher Chad Moeller

    Quick hits
    Suppan has allowed one run in 24 innings (0.38 ERA) at Miller Park since the start of 2004. ... Davis has a 3.62 ERA against all teams other than St. Louis. When you factor in his games against the Cardinals, it climbs to 3.91. ... Right-handed batters have a higher batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage against Suppan than lefties this year. ... David Eckstein has a career-high 41 extra-base hits. He's five RBIs short of equaling his career mark. ... Jim Edmonds is hitting .225 with the bases empty and .300 with runners on.

        Dream on...Shouldn't that be "go over the .500 mark for the first time this century"?

            We need a win today.

            We can only lose two more and still get to 100 wins.
            Go Cards ...12 in 13.

              Yeah. I'd really like to see them post back-to-back 100 win seasons, but this road trip is making that less likely.

                    The roof is still leaky, apparently.
                    The noise was good, but I thought they phoned in a lot of the funk.
