Cardinals pitchers are issuing way too many walks these days.Yadier Molina smacked a grand slam Reynaldo Lopez Jersey , Marcell Ozuna homered twice and St. Louis beat the Washington Nationals 11-8 to snap a three-game losing streak.The Cardinals hope right-hander Miles Mikolas (13-4, 2.96 ERA) reverses the trend when he opposes right-hander Tanner Roark (8-14, 4.03) in Wednesday night’s series finale.Article continues below ...Molina provided a cushion for St. Louis (77-62) via his sixth career slam, which made it 11-5 with two outs in the ninth and Jordan Hicks later got the final out with the tying run at the plate.The 4-hour, 10-minute game included 16 walks and 20 strikeouts, with 11 walks coming from Cardinals’ pitchers.“The walks are concerning. That’s 11, 10 yesterday and eight the day before,” Shildt said. “It’s actually kind of impressive/depressive (depending) how you want to look at it. We’ve had a real opportunity to win all the last three games.”Washington pitchers gave up a more reasonable number of walks, but surrendered five home runs, including three in the sixth inning. Reliever Austen Williams Bruce Rondon Jersey , in his second major league game, was victimized in the sixth and Sammy Solis gave up Molina’s grand slam.“They are going to get an opportunity to pitch so they got to realize if they want to pitch here they got to get outs,” Martinez said. “These are the things we have to see. I can’t keep using the same guys every single day. These guys have to pitch.”Molina’s homer and one by Paul DeJong in the sixth came on 0-2 pitches.That can’t happen,” Martinez said. “I told them all ‘hey with our offense we’re going to score (runs). Every inning you guys come in is a closer inning. You got to go in there like you’re going to close the game out.’ That’s how important these innings are.”The Nationals (69-70) fell below .500 after nearly pulling off their third come-from-behind win in five days.Roark had been sizzling since the All-Star break, but struggled in his last start, allowing four runs on six hits in six innings of a loss to the Brewers. Three of the Milwaukee hits were home runs.“Just a little erratic at times, not hitting my spots, and they made me pay for it,” Roark told federalbaseball.com, in summing up his outing after the game.Roark is 2-2 with a 5.57 ERA in six games (four starts) against the Cardinals. He picked up a win against them Aug. 16 in St. Louis when he allowed four runs (three earned) over six innings.Mikolas http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-konerko-jersey , who had originally been announced as Tuesday’s starter, was moved to Wednesday with John Gant taking the ball Tuesday night. Mikolas took his first loss since June 29 in his last start, when he allowed two runs on eight hits over five innings.“I don’t want to say I’m a victim of bad luck, but a couple of those balls, a couple feet this way or that way, I don’t think they are scoring a run at all,” Mikolas told mlb.com.In his last two starts, he has allowed seven runs (six earned) on 20 hits in 9 2/3 innings.He gave up four runs in seven innings to Washington in a Cardinals’ victory Aug. 13. He’s 0-1 with a 7.36 ERA in two games versus the Nationals in his career. Even with Harper and Scherzer on the roster, the Nationals finished a ho-hum 82-80 in 2018, "good" for a distant second place in the National League East. After winning three division titles in four years between 2014 and 2017 Miguel Gonzalez Jersey , they watched the playoffs from their La-Z-Boys.Maybe it was a blip and the Nationals will surge back in 2019. But they're competing with the fast-rising Atlanta Braves, who won the division behind a burgeoning young core and boast the No. 2 farm system in the game, according to Bleacher Report's Joel Reuter.Then there are the Philadelphia Phillies, who finished two games behind Washington but also have a solid stockpile of up-and-coming talent and tons of payroll flexibility. Hence the rumblingsPhiladelphia might try to land Harper and fellow 26-year-old superstar Manny Machado.Even if that's a pipe dream (and it probably is), the Phillies could easily spend enough to lure Harper away from the Nationals鈥攁s could other deep-pocketed suitors such as the Los Angeles Dodgers.General manager Mike Rizzo said Harper was "in our plans" and "part of our family," per Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post. Those are warm and fuzzy words, but words don't pay record-breaking contracts, which is what Harper will demand and likely get. Odds are, the Nationals will wave goodbye to their brash franchise player.If so, they'll be in a tough spot Tim Anderson Jersey , even with Scherzer.Now, imagine the haul they could get for a pitcher of Scherzer's pedigree. It would start with any team's top prospect (or two) and go from there. They could probably demand top prospects and MLB-ready players.The New York Yankees, to cite one example, desperately need starting pitching. What if the Nats pried away outfielder (and Harper's buddy) Clint Frazier, top New York pitching prospect Justus Sheffield plus ancillary pieces?That's wild speculation, obviously. But the Nationals could ask for the moon in exchange for Scherzer, and suitors such as the Yanks, Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros would immediately start swinging their space lassos.Alex Brandon/Associated PressIt's worth noting Scherzer is 34 years old. He's also owed more than $126 million, though a portion of that is deferred through 2028.That said http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-konerko-jersey , if the Nationals made him available, Rizzo's phone would light up like a kerosene-soaked jack-o'-lantern. Washington would have its pick of gaudy packages.The short-term optics would not be great. The odds of this happening are low. But the more you think about it, the more sense it makes.The Nationals have exciting young players to build around, including left fielder and possible NL Rookie of the Year Juan Soto, center fielder Victor Robles and shortstop Trea Turner. Maybe they should follow the Braves' and Phillies' lead by shedding salary and going young. Their current course has yielded multiple playoff appearances, but they've never advanced past the division series round.The road to success is frequently paved with difficult, unpopular choices.Trading Scherzer would fit that description. It might also be the way to go. All statistics and contract information courtesy of Baseball Reference and FanGraphs.
