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.
