|St. Louis pitcher Luke Weaver flirted with perfection Authentic Jeremy Kerley Jersey , had to overcome a little frustration, and settled for domination.
The Cardinals‘ offense was pretty good, too.
Weaver pitched two-hit ball over eight innings and St. Louis beat the San Francisco Giants 11-2 on Thursday night.
”He was making quality pitches at the top of the zone, down, changeup, breaking ball,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said ”Everything was spot on but he controlled the count with his heater and got a lot of early balls in the air. He was aggressive.”
Weaver (5-7) faced two over the minimum and had seven strikeouts. The 24-year-old right-hander carried a perfect game into the sixth inning before giving up a single and Hanson’s two-run homer. Weaver then bounced back to retire the final seven batters he faced.
Weaver didn’t allow a hit until Gorkys Hernandez reached on an infield single with one out in the sixth. Gyorko made a diving stop on Hernandez’s sharp liner near third base but the ball popped out of his right hand as he attempted to throw. Hanson followed with his homer.
”As soon as chopped it and Jedd had to dive, I had a feeling there was not going to be a chance to get him,” Weaver said. ”It would have had to have been an incredible slide jump-up throw and I still don’t think he would have got him. It wasn’t a big deal. I was pretty upset about the home run.”
Jedd Gyorko had three hits including a home run and drove in five runs to spoil the return of Johnny Cueto after two months on the disabled list. Matt Carpenter and Harrison Bader also went deep while Yadier Molina singled three times.
The Cardinals had a season-high 18 hits – their most since getting 19 against the New York Mets on Aug. 24, 2016.
Alen Hanson homered for San Francisco. The Giants have scored five runs while losing four straight.
Cueto (3-1) was rocked in his long-awaited return from the 60-day disabled list. He gave up four runs in the first inning – one more than he had in 32 innings before going out with right elbow inflammation.
”Everything was fine except in the first inning when I was trying to be too fine,” Cueto said. ”Instead of just pitching, I was just trying to place the ball in the strike zone. I just have to continue working my way back to where I was.”
WHAT’S THE COUNT?
San Francisco’s Pablo Sandoval appeared to draw a two-out walk in the fifth and began trotting to first base before being called back after Matheny noticed there were only three balls. Two pitches later Authentic Customized Dolphins Jerseys , Sandoval struck out to end a 12-pitch at-bat.
”I whistled and had the umpire stop for a second,” Matheny said. ”At about the same time, the replay called and then they figured it out on the field by the time we needed to come out of the dugout.”
BABY BULL RETURNS
Orlando Cepeda attended the game for the first time since suffering cardiac arrest in February that left the Hall of Famer in critical condition. The Baby Bull was in the parking lot of a gym when he fell and hit his head during the incident. The 80-year-old is one of the most popular players in franchise history.
Cardinals: OF Dexter Fowler was reinstated from the paternity list before the game. … Tyler O’Neill was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain. … RHP Matt Bowman (blister) was activated off the DL and optioned to Triple-A Memphis.
Giants: Manager Bruce Bochy said that RHP Jeff Samardzija will have fewer restrictions than Cueto when he returns from the disabled list to start Saturday’s game. Samardzija hasn’t pitched since May 29 because of shoulder tightness. … INF Kelby Tomlinson was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento. … RHP Roberto Gomez was released.
John Gant (2-2, 3.48 ERA) pitches for St. Louis on Friday. The right-hander has had mixed success since rejoining the rotation and allowed four runs in 5 1/3 against Atlanta in his most recent start. RHP Dereck Rodriguez (3-1 3.16) starts for San Francisco.
鈥?For a guy who has dealt with so many high-profile people 鈥?Jerry Jones, Jim Harbaugh, Pete Carroll to name a few 鈥?Jed Hughes manages to stay out of the limelight.That’s just fine with Hughes. Brokering deals is what he’s all about.Hughes has been doing so for more than a decade, going back to helping Jones find a coach (Chan Gailey) in 1998. As vice chairman of Korn/Ferry International, he marries teams and organizations with candidates who fit a certain profile for the open position. Those groups have ranged from NFL clubs 鈥?six current head coaches (Dan Quinn, Carroll, Andy Reid, Hue Jackson, Doug Marrone Youth Jihad Ward Jersey , and Bill O’Brien) got their jobs with the aid of Hughes’ placement company 鈥?to the NBA, college sports, Major League Baseball and the USOC.The philosophy is simple.“It has to be the right culture fit,” says Hughes, a former football coach for the Vikings, Steelers and Browns, plus Michigan, Stanford and UCLA. “You have to make the chemistry work. Communication at all levels is a critical element.”That communication is a constant whether Hughes is working with a publicly owned franchise, the Green Bay Packers 鈥?he helped find a CEO, Mark Murphy, in 2007 鈥?or the U.S. Olympic Committee (he aided in the hiring of CEO Scott Blackmun in 2010, during a time of major turmoil in that organization). It’s the same if he is working with a front-and-center owner such as Jones in Dallas Cheap Sam Hubbard Jersey , a behind-the-scenes type like Paul Allen in Seattle, or a relative newcomer to NFL ownership, Shad Khan in Jacksonville.Hughes was instrumental in Doug Marrone’s promotion from interim to head coach of the Jaguars. During the search process, Khan also decided Tom Coughlin would be an invaluable addition to the front office. Hughes isn’t taking any credit for the team’s return to the playoffs this season, but he does smile when relaying the dynamics of those deals.“Shad had been an owner for five years, and his team had averaged less than four wins a season,” Hughes says. “What he wanted was strong leadership on the football side, and Tom had a strong connection with Jacksonville and was interested in coming back. He had stayed active in football, and it was Tom who suggested the role.“He and Doug have showed they are the right fit.”How does Korn/Ferry determine which candidates might possess that fit?The company puts together alignment sheets and an assortment of questionnaires and specs 鈥?some look as lengthy as a game plan 鈥?that reference the qualities the team or organization want, and the qualities the candidates bring. It doesn’t hurt, Hughes says, that he has long-standing friendships and bonds with so many people in the sports business.Cleveland’s recent hiring of John Dorsey as general manager is a case in points Cheap Customized Tennessee Titans Jerseys , Hughes explains. The Browns began searching for someone much earlier in the season, and Hughes not only had a relationship with Dorsey, but recognized the skills Dorsey showed as GM in Kansas City 鈥?solid draft picks, salary cap management 鈥?were what Cleveland’s owners sought most.“He could manage a roster and a team’s assets the most effectively,” Hughes says.Because Cleveland announced Dorsey’s hiring shortly after firing Sashi Brown, questions arose about the team adhering to the Rooney Rule. But Hughes says the Browns spoke with many candidates throughout the season, including minorities. They somehow managed to do so very quietly.Korn/Ferry also has three white papers authored by Hughes that concentrate on strategies for succeeding as a new team owner; how to become a successful general manager; and the challenges that new coaches and GMs face. Those papers were put together after Hughes spoke with many of his former clients and other industry leaders.Hughes will not take on more than one client at a time in a specific sport because of the competitiveness of the hiring process. But the list of clients throughout the sports world indicates how busy he has been. He was involved in Shaka Smart going from VCU to coach basketball at Texas; John Wildhack leaving ESPN to become the athletic director at Syracuse; Patrick Ewing’s hiring as coach at Georgetown; Tom Thibodeau and Scott Layden landing with the Timberwolves as coach and GM, respectively; and three men landing commissionerships, Larry Scott with the Pac-12; Greg Sankey with the SEC, and Bob Bowlsby at the Big 12.“We seek a quantitative way to define leadership traits and competency levels,” Hughes says. “That can be different at all levels of sports. But one thing about sports: nothing is guaranteed.”.
