Kansas City, Missouri – Tuesday Match Report: Royals 7, Cardinals 1

It was another night the Cardinals struggled on Tuesday night in Kansas City.

They were eliminated in the first seven rounds in just four strokes in losing the opening game of a two-game series against the Royal Family. It was the seventh time in the last 10 games that the Cardinal scored twice or less.

Here’s how the game fell apart:

In the dish: The Cardinals finished with six hits, and scored their only run in the eighth when Tommy picked Adman, Paul Goldschmidt walked, Tyler O’Neal got an RBI single… He also singled out Cardinal’s first addiction, and he’s the only Cardinal to have a two-stroke night. He’s back in the lineup after missing Monday’s game…their only additional base hit was Nolan Arenado’s double in the fourth game…Dylan Carlson slipped to ninth, making it to base twice in one walk and one time.

on the hill: Dakota Hudson gave up nine strokes over six innings, but was able to take the Palace Royals over three runs. He walked twice and hit four goals…TJ McFarland put Hudson back with an eighth-place runner and allowed this race to score, plus another run…Royal Jake Woodford’s last two runs scored in 1 2/3 of his innings satisfaction.

Basic stats: Three of the Cardinals’ main players — O’Neill, Carlson and Paul Dejung — finished the game with an under-200 average. Corey Dickerson, who was the first DH against the right throw, also made under-200.

not worth anything Cardinals put Edmundo Sosa on the list of people infected with the emerging coronavirus, while bowler Stephen Matz was placed on the list of victims Tuesday. Memphis’s Juan Yebbes and Bucky Naughton have been called up, although the Yepes – who hit Homer his ninth with the Redbirds during their daytime game on Tuesday – didn’t make it to Kansas City in time for Tuesday night’s game. Naughton was picked on Monday when the rosters were reduced from 28 to 26 players… Yadier Molina was in the original line-up for Tuesday night’s game but got scraped by a non-COVID illness. He’s expected to play on Wednesday… Drew VerHagen kicked off his rehab start in Memphis, throwing 27 throws in 1 and 2/3 innings. It has not been decided whether he will start again in Triple A or join the Major League club.

I look ahead: The start time of Wednesday’s game has been moved from 6:10 p.m. to 12:10 p.m. due to the threat of bad weather Wednesday night in Kansas City. Adam Wainwright is slated to start.
