Ten-Run Inning Secures Comeback Cards Win

Jonathan Grant | July 20th, 2019

After four innings of their game against the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night, it looked like the St. Louis Cardinals were done and dusted. They were down 7-0 and on the road, a spot many a team would have simply called it a day from. But that wasn’t the way things went down on this night, as the Cardinals answered back with a ridiculous ten-run inning in the sixth to help them on the way to a 12-11 win. The hero of the sixth inning, among others, was Jose Martinez.

Not only did he have a Grand Slam homer but he also singled and had scored a run previously to that. In the seventh, they extended their lead through Paul DeJong hit his second home run of the game. A late, valiant comeback from the rocked Reds would ensue, but in the bottom of the ninth they were thwarted with runners right at the doorstep. Ryan Lavarnway showed out for the Reds, smacking two homers of his own, in the fourth and eighth, and also driving in a run via a deep double. Cincinnati are now nine games back of the Cubs in the NL Central, while the Cardinals are in second and 2.5 games behind their rivals.
