The Adams Chronicles Report

by Bill Chuck on September 5, 2013

It was a tension convention at the Great American Ballpark last night as the Cardinals defeated the Reds, 5-4, in 16 innings.

The Cards suffered what could be a huge loss when Allen Craig turned his left ankle and left the game with a left foot sprain and was seen on crutches after the game.

Craig’s replacement, Matt Adams ended an 0-for-17 slump when he homered in the 14th inning and when that didn’t stick, he homered again off Logan Ondrusek (3-1) in the 16th for the Cardinals victory.

According to Elias: Matt Adams is the first player in MLB history to homer twice in the 14th inning or later

The Phillies John Mayberry facing the Marlins on June 4, 2013 was also a sub when he hit a game-tying HR in the bottom of the 10th and then a walk-off grand slam in the 11th.

Joey Votto went 0-for-7 for the first time in his career after having never gone 0-for-6. Not only is he 4-for-his-last-34, but he committed his 13th error of the season. But Votto wasn’t alone in his misery. Jon Jay and Chris Heisey also went 0-for-7.
