Another Brick in the Juggs Wall

Juggernauts continue to hit a wall they can’t punch through. Needing only one win per their last four series to almost certainly secure a playoff spot Juggs lose 6 straight. And play off hopes pretty well dashed . A depleted bullpen is the biggest reason we can’t contend anymore. Game 1 Ace Degrom for stars (20) . Lowly Gonzales for Juggs (11).  Bottom of first the stars start their hitting streak . Suarez +5 single, Marte +8 homer turned to a double by Gonzales (+21) , Cron +5 rbi single, Ramos  +1rbi sac fly to CF , Gurriel +5 double, Bader +4 3 run homer , Gennett single, Kemp single, zobrist walk against +35 , back to Suarez rbi single, marte and Cron both flyout to end inning. Stars up 6-0 and Gonzales is a base 6 now . Top of second judge solo shot . Bottom 3rd stars score two more . Up 8-1 . Top 4th Votto lead off solo homer , judge follows him with second solo shot of night . Stars up 8-3 . Bottom 5th Suarez gets his 4th straight hit a solo shot and his 3rd rbi of the game . Bottom of 7th stars score 3 more and Suarez will get his 4th rbi by walk . Stars up 12-3 . Top 8 Ahmed walk , Barnhart on by Gennett error , Hicks rbi single. Peralta k , Votto DP . Juggs lose 12-4 . Degrom CG won only 4 hits 3 ER 3 HR 2 BB 11k. Gonzales CG loss. Juggs 4/4/0. Stars 12/18/1. Game 2 Juggs throw Chacin. Stars Kershaw.

Top 9th Barnhart lead off double, stars bring in their 5th reliever of game Chapman lefty to face -10 Peralta. Hicks PH rolls 11=5 homer turned back , double scores Barnhart, Cruz PH for Iglesias, stars think hard then make a crucial pitching change with a 6-2 lead pull -63/+51 chapman for dyson. Great move because Cruz rolls a 65 result and springer, judge results 12 all three potentially walks with Chapman, a run would have scored and bases would have been loaded with no outs, good move by stars they win 6-2 .

Bottom of second stars hit 3 doubles and get a HBP score two runs . Score again in 3rd and 5th. Juggs 0/0/0 stars 4/9/0 . Juggs now 46-47

With runners on the corners no outs Juggs try sac bunt with Barnhart ( I thought Smith was on 3rd but he had already scored and lowerie was on 3rd , so had I known this I wouldn’t have attempted squeeze play) but Barnhart rolls a 13 strike lowrie out at home .

Top of 8 th game 3 one out go ahead homer 66=0 he only has one 1 in second column at 66 , we roll a consecutive 66 yes we can take the lead . But NO Doolittle a +26 rolls a 26 , double left on second 😡
