Aguilar succeeded twice.
Aguilar homered to break up rookie Jack Flaherty’s no-hit bid in the seventh inning Marquise Brown Jersey , then homered again in the ninth to lift the Milwaukee Brewers over the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 on Friday night.
Both teams got just three hits. The benches and bullpens briefly cleared in the eighth after Eric Sogard slid into St. Louis shortstop Yairo Munoz, who caught a wide throw on a bunt play in the eighth.
Norris (3-2) started the ninth for the Cardinals by striking out Travis Shaw. But, Aguilar followed with an opposite-field drive to right for his 16th home run.
”Don’t get a strikeout. Don’t get a strikeout,” Aguilar said about digging in against Norris. ”That’s why I was kind of overaggressive, I think. I got lucky to hit that pitch.”
Norris, speaking in front of his locker in the subdued Cardinals clubhouse, owned up to the mistake.
”I yanked one pitch, and he hit it,” Norris said. ”That’s the game.”
It was another tough loss for the Cardinals http://www.ravensfootballauthentics.com/jaylon-ferguson-jersey-authentic , who have lost nine of the last 12.
”Watching them walk us off, that’s hard,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. ”Jack did everything he could possibly do.”
Corey Knebel (1-0) pitched the ninth for the NL Central leaders.
With one out in the seventh, Aguilar drove an 83 mph slider from Flaherty into the Brewers’ bullpen in left, where reliever Jeremy Jeffress caught the ball on the fly. A woman who was knitting – it appeared to be crochet, actually – in the front row behind home plate barely flinched as Aguilar connected.
”He got that ball almost off the ground,” catcher Yadier Molina said. ”We’ve got to give him some credit.”
Aguilar tipped his cap to Flaherty.
”He was dominating the strike zone tonight, and I think we got lucky,” he said. ”We tied the game in the moment. It’s a new game Miles Boykin Jersey , and we’re moving forward, thinking we’re going to win this game.”
Flaherty matched a career high by striking out 13 in seven innings, allowing just one hit. The Cardinals played stellar defense behind him after giving up six unearned runs with a season-high four errors in Thursday’s 11-3 loss to Milwaukee. Munoz robbed Jonathan Villar of a base hit in the fifth with a nice running backhand stab of a liner tailing away from him.
”That was unbelievable,” Molina said of Flaherty’s performance. ”Good pitching, good effort. Everything was working for him. We didn’t hit enough to get him the win tonight.”
Matt Carpenter walked, advanced on a sacrifice by Harrison Bader and scored on Marcell Ozuna’s liner up the middle in the third.
Brewers starter Junior Guerra allowed one run and three hits with four walks and seven strikeouts in five-plus innings.
Cardinals: INF Paul DeJong (left hand fracture) took batting practice and is anxious to return. ”It looked like he didn’t miss a beat, but we’re going to have to slow down and make sure we’re following the program,” manager Mike Matheny said.
Brewers: LF Ryan Braun missed his second consecutive game after receiving a cryotherapy injection in his troublesome right thumb Wednesday in Los Angeles. … LHP Wade Miley (right oblique strain) made a rehab start for Double-A Biloxi. He went two innings and allowed a run on three hits and struck out three.
Each team struck out 15 times and each one seemed to bring consternation with plate umpire Tim Timmons.
”When the pitchers keep putting the balls on the corners, there’s going to be some disagreements Deandre Baker Jersey ,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. ”There were a lot of balls put on corners tonight.”
Tommy Pham, batting second, was ejected by Timmons after Pham took a called third strike in the first. He continued to bark about it from the dugout before being tossed for the first time in his career. Bader replaced Pham in center field.
Cardinals: RHP Miles Mikolas (7-2, 2.69 ERA) makes his third start against the Brewers this season. He won 8-4 in his Cardinals debut on April 2.
Brewers: RHP Chase Anderson (5-6, 4.54 ERA) makes his second start this season against the Cardinals. He is 2-2 with a 3.19 ERA in 10 career outings, including a no-decision April 3 at Miller Park.
No matter how much time, effort and money NFL teams put into the draft, there will always be players that slip through the cracks. The Tom Bradys and Tony Romos and John Randles of the world who should have been first rounders, end up getting taken late in the draft or not even drafted at all. The draft is both an art and a science http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-oshane-ximines-jersey , and NFL teams will inevitably fail both subjects from time-to-time.Everything that was just said about players that slip through the cracks can also be said about players that don’t live up to the hype. You can talk to college coaches, college teammates, former teachers, childhood friends and the family members of top draft prospects, but something will still be amiss which makes NFL personnel misevaluate players. There are no “sure things” when projecting whether a 20-year-old college superstar can become a great player in the NFL which is why there are so many draft busts.We will take a look at those busts from the start of the 21st century and what they did after their playing careers. Some players may have been busts on the field, but they found great success after their playing days came to an end. Likewise, some busts just continued down their downward spiral and were just as bad off the field as they were on it. Here are 8 NFL draft busts since 2000 doing well for themselves and 7 draft busts doing terribly.
