After a body-pounding inning, Cardinals' Piscotty is fine

Additionally, Cubs manager Joe Maddon will once again have a weekly hit on 670 The Score, joining the Spiegel and Parkins Show at noon on Tuesdays.

This year the target on the world champion Cubs' backs might be even bigger, but that's just fine with Maddon.

"I definitely didn't black out, but I was stunned and didn't realize what happened", Piscotty told reporters Wednesday.

With Mother Nature intervening, and we will have to wait one more day for more of the shenanigans these two teams have been putting together. I mean that sincerely. “It came down to the fact, one, I love this organization and two, this deal gives myself and my future family financial security.”. Lynn missed previous year after undergoing Tommy John surgery in November 2015. "I think we all did". "My stuff is good, I've just to go out there and be aggressive with it and let them put the ball in play". If another group has to become emotional to play us or beat us, that's going to run out at some point, too. "Just I'm glad he's okay". Jay was on the disabled list during the Padres' visit to St. Louis a year ago. That's to be expected. A head contusion was announced as the reason he was removed from the game, which ended 2-1 to the Cubs. It's the kind of freak play that will be talked about for years. There were two runners on base at the time, and obviously both of them moved up as a result of the wild pitch.

In the fourth inning of the Cardinals' matchup against the Chicago Cubs, Wainwright let loose of an very bad wild pitch that bounced several feet up the first base line. What may surprise you, however, is that ten of the total nineteen games were decided by two runs or fewer. But Arrieta's 90th pitch produced a popup from Randal Grichuk that shortstop Addison Russell gloved to end the threat. To end the game, Baez ranged nearly behind first to glove Kolten Wong's grounder with a dive, then threw from his knees to nip the speedy Wong by a half-step.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny raised his hands when asked about keeping the Cubs in town for another day. Strong-armed Cubs catcher Willson Contreras fired a throw to try to catch Piscotty but instead nailed him square in the left elbow as he slid into second.

Kolten Wong grounded the ball softly to Baez, who fumbled the ball and then threw home.

It was a rough sequence of events for Piscotty, who ended up leaving the game with an injury after the headshot. Carrasco (1-0) limited Texas to 2 runs and had 1 walk on 78 pitches over 52/3 innings.

Although he promised her he would, Albert Almora Jr. wasn't able to hit a home run for his mother's birthday.
