For the past ten games the Cardinals are 5-5. The bats are struggling but the pitching is trying to hang tough. Next week the Cardinals will be playing the Diamondbacks and the Giants, in which they can be a thorn in the Cardinals side. The past two games the Cardinals lost to the Padres have been dreadful. Not only do the Cardinals look tired but the bats are draggy too. The Pirates and Cubs are inching forward to catch up with the Cardinals soon. There might be some help sometime soon. Matt Adams is expected back in mid-September. Jon Jay and Matt Holiday expected back sooner. So help is on the way! I am also hearing that they may add another bat in the mix, not sure who. I am hoping the Cardinals get back in track soon before its too late.
