Tatis’s brutal error and mental mistake — he chose not to throw second or third easily for force out — was a dust-up of his bargain with his teammate Manny Machado. It happened the next day.
“Looking back, we might be second,” said Padres manager Jayce Tingler. “He was ready to play in case they were tagging there, so his idea was to catch and go home. After the ball fell to the ground, he Brought those instincts. “
San Diego starter Jake Arrieta was injured shortly after the error and left.
St. Louis completed a three-game sweep, opening the three-game lead for Cincinnati and Philadelphia’s second NL wildcard, which played at the New York Mets late Sunday. The Cardinals did not win eight straight games from August 7th to 15th, 2018.
St. Louis was an 81/2 game from the wildcard spot on August 10th.
Cardinals shortstop Edmundo Sosa said through an interpreter, “It was a huge win for us. It was our idea to be able to win and win the series. The game. We are now. I will continue to do that. “
San Diego, who drew 8-4 in the 8th inning, lost 8 out of 11 innings, dropping 31/2 games from the Cardinals.
“The last time I was at Zoom, I said it would be the biggest comeback in San Diego’s history,” said Padres’ rescuer Craig Stammen, who succeeded Arrieta. “I still believe it. The rest of the clubhouse still believe it. I wanted it not to go this way, but it’s here.”
Arrieta (5-14) left after 6 batters and 20 pitches due to tension in the groin of the right adductor muscle. He allowed 5 runs (4 wins), 3 hits and 1 walk.
St. Louis loaded a walk without an out in the first match that Tommy Edman doubled, Paul Goldschmidt single and Tyler O’Neal walked.
Arenado struck a pop in the center that allowed Tatis to settle less than 226 feet from the plate and bounce off the glove. Rather than throwing into second or third place for a quick force out, a 22-year-old center fielder with a $ 340 million 14-year contract hits the plate after Edman stood up with a one-hop throw. I did it in a hurry.
Dylan Carlson followed with a sacrifice fly, Sosa doubled the RBI, and Harrison Bader gave the starting lineup a 5-0 lead with a two-run double.
“Many great at-bats,” said Cardinals manager Mike Shildt. “I didn’t expect them to just fall. They would give you the best bolts, they did, and we were able to dodge them.”
Alex Reyes (9-8) won one run in two innings with the relief of JA Happ, who gave up three runs and four hits in four innings. Geobunny Galegos made his 10th save with 18 chances and hit 2 with a perfect 9 times.
San Diego approached 5-3 with the third Tatis RBI single, the fourth Eric Hosmer RBI and Wil Myers RBI single.
O’Neill became a single on his fifth run and scored a double with Sosa, who had just fallen from the grasp of the Diving Myers on the right.
Tommy Pham’s 14th Homer cut the gap 6th to 7-4, and Carlson 7th singled a run from Dinelson Lamet home.
