The smile on Adam Winewright’s face said it all. Senior Cardinals returned to the rubber after hitting the pitcher Fernando Toddys Jr. with a smile and a slight shake on the head at a bad end in the third inning. Everyone who casts their eyes upon it, wants a go
The senior cardinals returned to the rubber after scoring out the jug
On the fifth pitch of the at-bat, Vinewright threw Doddis a two-seam fastball at a high and tight, 89.3-mile speed, and it lifted Doddis’ bat. Molina’s glove stayed there, and the senior catcher made sure to catch the ball on the top of his glove. He jumped up to show home-blade referee Corey Blazer, and Todd was sent back to the dig.
It was not an easy play, and Wynride knew it. He also knows that his long-time catcher will make it.
It may have been Winewright’s second strike of the night, but the credit goes to Molina – and Winewright may be the first person to say this. This is another way Molina put her fingerprints on her 100th career post-season game. The 38-year-old Cardinals ran in the first inning with the RBI single in the first inning – his 99th post-season win for the Cardinals.
