Matheny 4th for Manager of the Year

It was obvious when he was not announced as one of the three finalists last week that despite leading the St. Louis Cardinals to the National League Championship Series for the third time in as many seasons, Mike Matheny would not win BBWAA’s NL Manager of the Year award.

Rookie manager Matt Williams of Washington, was announced as the winner Tuesday night. Matheny finished in fourth place.

Based on a 5-3-1 scoring system, Matheny received five 2nd place votes and three 3rd place votes for 18 total points, which put him just behind the three finalists of Williams, Clint Hurdle, and Bruce Bochy.

ALL-STARS in JAPAN

–The official series kicks off at 3am CT on Wednesday, but on Tuesday the MLB All-Stars defeated Hanshin-Yomiuri by a score of 8-7 in exhibition play. St. Louis Cardinals left-hander Randy Choate threw 22 pitches in the 6th inning, allowing one hit and one run to go with a strikeout and walk.

Evan Longoria hit a grand slam in the 5th inning to provide the bulk of the ML’s offense. Yasiel Puig and Salvador Perez also drove in runs for the ML.

Matt Shoemaker, who finished second in AL Rookie of the Year voting, makes the start on Wednesday and will be opposed by Kenta Maeda.
