Padres 3, Cardinals 4: Not an All Star? Not a Problem

Padres (37-59)101000001390
Cardinals (54-43)01020010-490
W: Lohse (12-2) L: Peavy (7-6) S: Franklin (13)


Kyle Lohse responded to not being picked to the All Star team by dominating the Padres and beating Jake Peavy, to boot.

Lohse pitched 7 innings, allowing only 2 runs on 7 hits. He struck out 4. That was enough on a day when Peavy was home run happy.

Peavy allowed 4 solo shots. Two to Troy Glaus, who opened the second half with a far stronger bat than he’d shown in the first half, one to Rick Ankiel, and one to pinchhitter Joe Mather.

The Cardinals picked up a half game on the resting Cubs.
