Masterful performance by Wheeler. Unfortunately our top 5 in the order (all big money guys sans Hoskins) are 0-15.

Brendan Donovan grounds out, second baseman Jean Segura to first baseman Rhys Hoskins.
Nice job by Wheels. Awesome to see.
I hear good pitching beats good hitting.
Quintana was never going to pitch past that point clearly. Wheeler was a stud that last inning. I'm just a little nervous now about who faces Pujols and Goldschmidt next time.
Mariners break that five-inning drought.

Hate giving the Cardinals a base runner.

St. Louis Cardinals 2 - Philadelphia Phillies 0
I would’ve gone to Robertson here and saved Alvarado for when their big guys are up again.
Well sure, the playoffs are littered with the ghosts of every team's best reliever. Except for one.
Well that sucks
Typical Phillies baseball. Can’t score and the bullpen sucks.

Yadier Molina grounds out, third baseman Alec Bohm to first baseman Rhys Hoskins.
Hoping it would hook foul…
Team is playing tight as can be.
I mean, imagine how mad we'd be if Robertson (or even Falter or Hand) had gone in and done that. Or even if Thomson had made a pitching change for the PH.
Maybe they will surprise me buhh the at the moment I seriously doubt we can make a comeback.
