The Baby Birds went 1-4 on Thursday as Peoria was the only winner. Things got heated in the Peoria game as Jacob Wilson was hit in the head in the 9th and Thomas Lee retaliated by throwing behind a Clinton player in the bottom of the 9th. The benches cleared and there were a couple of ejections. Wilson was able to walk off on his own power and was tweeting after the game. Thursday’s action saw rough starts by Mitchell Boggs and Tim Cooney. David Popkins continues to excel, extending his hitting streak to 12 games.
Here are the results from Thursday’s action:

The Cardinals beat the Mets 2-1 Thursday afternoon at Citi Field in New York. Trevor Rosenthal came on in the eighth inning in relief of Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright who threw seven shutout innings.
The pressure of standing and watching a one-run ball game was apparently too much for this Mets fan in the background. For absolutely no reason at all, aside from TMB (too much...
After locking down their top three picks, the Cardinals turned to high upside draft picks to lock down. Part of the Cardinals’ draft strategy was to save money by selecting college seniors and to use those savings on high upside high school players.
The Cardinals’ signed their 5th round pick, Ian McKinney out of Boone High School in Orlando, for $303,300 according to Jim Callis...
So on his off-day on Monday of this week, Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright took a detour on his way to New York and stopped off at the ESPN campus to get showered with love and plastered all over SportsCenter.

He did get to meet comedian Kevin Hart, who he pitched against in a...
