The Predators
#1
Jose Peraza’s best game at the plate turned out to be Mike Matheny’s last in the Cardinals‘ dugout.
Peraza had a career-best five hits Janoris Jenkins Jersey , Scooter Gennett drove in two runs and the Reds waited out a pair of rain delays before beating St. Louis 8-2 on Saturday night.
The Cardinals fired Matheny, who was in his seventh year as manager, after the game.
Peraza is hitting 14 for 33 (.424) on the Reds’ eight-game road trip.
”I felt good,” Peraza said. ”I just swung the bat and something happened.”
Following the two delays that totaled 2 hours, 43 minutes, Cincinnati trailed 2-0 after five innings before rallying for eight runs in its final four at-bats.
”This one just got away,” Matheny said. ”You’ve got a team that’s swinging the bats very well over there and not letting you get away with many mistakes.”
Gennett hit a 100 mph fastball off Jordan Hicks (3-2) to right field for a single to drive in Billy Hamilton with the bases loaded in the seventh inning to put the Reds ahead 3-2.
Peraza’s 5-for-6 performance came after he had registered four hits on four previous occasions, most recently on April 27 at Minnesota. He tied the game at 2 in the seventh when he singled on a chopper up the middle that bounced off Hicks’ pitching hand to drive in Dilson Herrera.
Cincinnati has won three straight against St. Louis after having dropped 13 in a row to the Cardinals. The Reds are 21-9 since June 10.
”It kind of goes back to when we won two out of there against Atlanta on the road,” Cincinnati manager Jim Riggleman said. ”We’ve played some good series against first-place clubs, playoff teams.”
Hicks allowed four runs on four hits, a walk, and one hit batter while recording just one out in the seventh inning.
”That game’s definitely on me Arden Key Jersey ,” Hicks said. ”I’m supposed to come in and be lock down and that wasn’t the case today.”
Austin Brice (2-2) retired both batters he faced in the sixth after replacing Kyle Crockett, who opened the inning.
Gennett hit a double to left field off Mike Mayers in the sixth inning to score Joey Votto. He has 44 RBIs in 83 career games against St. Louis.
Jack Flaherty allowed two hits in five scoreless innings. He returned following a 52-minute rain delay after the first inning, but was removed from the game after play was halted for 1 hour, 51 minutes after the fifth.
Luis Castillo allowed two runs on five hits in five innings.
Matt Carpenter hit his 18th home run of the season in the first inning. It was his 19th career leadoff home run and fourth in 2018. He has 36 extra-base hits since May 15.
IRON MAN:
Yadier Molina started his 1,801st game at catcher to move past Tony Pena into eighth place in combined regular season and postseason starts behind the plate.
TRAINER’S ROOM:
Reds: RF Scott Schebler departed in the sixth inning after running into the right-field wall after catching Molina’s fly. ”I think he’s going to be all right,” Riggleman said. ”It was pretty sore but we’ll probably stay away from playing him tomorrow.”
Cardinals: OF Tyler O’Neill began a 20-day injury rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Memphis, where he went hitless in three at-bats Saturday with a strikeout at Omaha. O’Neill has been sidelined since July 5 with a left hamstring strain.
UP NEXT:
RHP Anthony DeSclafani (4-1, 4.43) will face RHP Miles Mikolas (10-3, 2.65). DeSclafani has won his last four decisions and is 5-1 with a 2.30 ERA in eight career outings against the Cardinals. Mikolas will represent the Cardinals at the All-Star Game at Nationals Park on Tuesday but will not pitch.

The temperature was well into triple digits and sweat-soaked Larry Fitzgerald was still going full bore, hauling in passes from Sam Bradford and Josh Rosen.
Entering his 15th season, with career receiving numbers among the best to have played the game, Fitzgerald is not talking about whether this year in the NFL will be his last.
"I'm just trying to make it to February in one piece Marquel Lee Jersey ," he said after the team's second day of minicamp on Wednesday.
Fitzgerald, who will turn 35 before the season begins, has taken part in every voluntary session with the same competitive mindset he's always had. As silly as it sounds, he said he plays like his job is on the line.
"When I say that I'm not saying it jokingly, that's the mentality that you have to have," he said. "All these guys, they're not bringing them in here for their own health. They're bringing them here to give them the opportunity to take your job. That's not lost on me ever. I'm fighting and competing just like everybody else is."
New coach Steve Wilks treasures having someone like Fitzgerald to help the Cardinals transition into a new system with the retirement of Bruce Arians.
"His commitment to this team, to this organization is invaluable," Wilks said. "It means a lot to me as a first-year head coach, a guy like that who can be an extension of you in the locker room, a true leader."
Fitzgerald is No. 1, with a lot of competition as to who will line up at the other receiver spots.
"The speed of the pack is determined by the speed of the leader Eric Weddle Jersey ," Wilks said. "He's one of the leaders. Guys are going to fall in line with him. The younger receivers are going to take his lead. It's great to have him out there. Not just being out there, but the way he goes about his business."
Fitzgerald said Wilks asked him to be there during voluntary OTAs and was effusive in his praise of new receivers coach Kevin Garver, who was assistant receivers coach in Arians' five seasons in Arizona.
Fitzgerald called Garver "one of the sharpest minds I've been around."
"I knew coach Wilks asked me early on to be here," Fitzgerald said. "And more so than that I wanted to start off on the right foot and make sure Kevin knew I was in the fight with him from day one. I want to be successful for Kevin and I knew in a few more years he'll be an offensive coordinator and a few years after that he'll be a head coach. I want to make sure that I'm doing everything I can while I can to help him elevate."
Fitzgerald has had a lot of quarterbacks throw him passes since he was drafted third overall by the Cardinals in 2004.
Now he's getting used to a new one in Bradford, who is being eased into workouts because he's coming off a knee injury.
Fitzgerald said the two are still learning each other, as is expected.
"That comes through repetition," Fitzgerald said. "The same thing with Kurt Warner when he first got here and with Carson (Palmer) six years ago when he got here. It takes a little time but once two veterans are able to learn each other it makes it a lot easier."
With Bradford watching much of the time, Fitzgerald has caught a lot of balls from the rookie Rosen.
"I'm really impressed with how Josh has been able to grasp everything," Fitzgerald said.
Star running back David Johnson was absent again Wednesday in an apparent contract holdout.
Fitzgerald wouldn't say much about that but hinted at his support for the player.
"I don't know the details of it, honestly," Fitzgerald said. "I don't know anything that's going on. But I'm always for my teammates. I love my guys. I'll just leave it at that."
Fitzgerald is a well-documented world traveler. After the final minicamp session on Thursday, he and cornerback Patrick Peterson Karl Joseph Jersey , a fellow avid golfer, are headed off together.
"We'll be over in St. Andrews playing some golf," he said. "We're going to have a good time. It's Pat's first time, so I want to beat him at the oldest golf course in the world."
Who's paying for the trip? At least indirectly, Fitzgerald said, Peterson is.
"Pat's paying for the trip after all the money I've taken from him this offseason," he said. "I'm appreciative of that."
