    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/1/11 — Albert Pujols

    When the Cards entered their three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, it appeared as though the Brewers had the NL Central locked up.  That no longer appears to be the case, thanks to a sweep by the Cards. On Tuesday it was pitcher Jake Westbrook providing the unexpected run support with a go-ahead […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/31/11 — Jake Westbrook

    Sitting 9.5 games back of the Milwaukee Brewers for top spot in the NL Central heading into yesterday’s game, the St. Louis Cardinals needed to make the most of their next eight games, as five of them were against those very same Brewers they are chasing.  They were able to get the job done last […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/21/11 — Albert Pujols

    With the official “best player in baseball” set to become a free agent at the end of the 2011 season, people started to worry when Albert Pujols got off to an excruciatingly slow start back in April and May. More recently, however, the Cardinals first baseman has started to look more like himself. Last night […]

    Yadier Molina Showers Home Plate Umpire With Spit (Video)

    When the St. Louis Cardinals and the Milwaukee Brewers went into extra innings during their game at Miller Park last night, it appeared as though the late night was making Yadir Molina cranky, while home plate umpire Rob Drake was getting tired and probably just wanted to go home.  So when these two conflicting attitudes […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/24/11 — Ricky Romero

    In his last outing Ricky Romero pitched seven solid innings against the Atlanta Braves, allowing only six hits and two runs against.  However, he would still suffer the loss and he voiced his displeasure regarding the lack of run support following the game.  He was back on the mound yesterday afternoon, and this time around […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/2/11 — Aubrey Huff

    I know that hitting three home runs in a single game is not an easy thing to do, but Major League batters have been making it seem that way recently.  Carlos Beltran, Jose Bautista, Jason Giambi, Corey Hart and Carlos Quentin had all accomplished the feat heading into yesterday’s slate of games. You can now […]

    With St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa away from the team as he gets treatment in Phoenix for a case of shingles, someone has had to fill in.  Yesterday afternoon, that someone was pitcher Kyle Lohse, who sported the 66-year-old manager’s jersey, along with a pair of his patented shades, as he made his […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/3/11 — Jaime Garcia

    Looking to win their first game of the season and avoid being swept by the San Diego Padres, the St. Louis Cardinals sent right-hander Jaime Garcia to the mound.  He didn’t disappoint, pitching a complete game shutout to lead his club to the 2-0 victory. Garcia got off to a scorching hot start last season, […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/11/10 – Adam Wainwright

    The St. Louis Cardinals had the brooms ready in anticipation of a sweep of the Reds in Cincy. The way Adam Wainwright was pitching, the Cardinal hitters could have used them as bats and still won the ballgame. Wainwright was brilliant as usual in shutting down the upstart Reds and the Cards completed the three-game […]

    Think baseball is boring because of its lack of physicality?  Sounds like you should start watching more games between the Cincinnati Reds and the St. Louis Cardinals.  If there was any doubt as to how these two teams felt about each other, those questions were answered last night when they engaged in a heated brawl […]

    With Child In One Hand, Dad Catches Foul Ball With Other

    We here at TotalProSports are all about giving fans props for their remarkable display of soft hands while catching a foul ball at the ballgame.  We have seen them do it in several different ways, but it doesn’t appear to get any better than a dad making a nice grab while holding their child at […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/29/10 — Albert Pujols

    Albert Pujols is one of the best players in the league and some would say one of the best players of all-time.  It would be a tough thing to argue against, as Pujols has consistently hit his way to the top of the leaderboards and kept his team competitive even when all has seemed lost. […]

    Albert Pujols: Baseball’s Nice Guy

    The list of jerks throughout pro sports is a lengthy one, and too often we read about them instead of the good guys in sports. But today we have a nice story about one of baseball’s nice guys, slugging St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols. Pujols recently hit his 14th homerun of the season […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/1/10 — Scott Rolen

    Scott Rolen was on the St. Louis Cardinals when they won the World Series in 2006.  In fact, he was an integral part of that team.  His hitting and fielding helped propel the Cards to the Championship.  Unfortunately for Rolen, his injury woes caught up with him the next year and he was traded away.

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/5/10 – Albert Pujols

    It didn’t take Albert Pujols long to pick up where he left off last season.  In fact, it was only his second swing of the season yesterday when he launched his first home run into deep left center field.  Last year’s NL MVP got off to a great start in his first at-bat, but he […]
