On their return to the game after having been greatly affected by COVID-19, the Cardinals of St. Louis took away the honours of a double header against the Chicago White Sox, Saturday, at the Guaranteed Rate Field.
The Cardinals dominated the first game 5 to 1. The starter Adam Wainwright (2-0) limited the batting Sox to only two hits in five innings of work. He gave up three goals on balls and removed three men with sticks to collect the victory. Lucas Giolito (1-2) recorded the loss.
Dexter Fowler was responsible for the attack with a mere two points in the first round. The Cardinals had forged a lead of 4 to 0 as soon as this at-bat.
Later in the day visitors have gone back to the signing of a victory of 6 to 3. This time, they have solved the case of the White Sox in the fifth inning by scoring four points. Tyler O’neil then hit a circuit of two points, while Paul Goldschmidt has produced his second point of the match using a simple. Earlier in the meeting, he had completed a circuit solo.
Genesis Cabrera (1-0) took the gain while the reverse has been brought to the card-Evan Marshall (0-1).
It is only of the sixth and seventh games of “Cards” this season, while most teams have played more than a dozen. They will attempt to sweep their series of three games against the White Sox on Sunday afternoon.
