Cardinals 8, Brewers 9 (OT): Pitching, We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Pitching



So pitching wasn’t exactly a strong suit in the game between the Cardinals (13-8) and the Brewers (12-8).

Kyle Lohse had his first bad outing of the year for the Cardinals–the first of many, I’m sure–and lasted only four innings. Needless to say, he didn’t really factor in the outcome of the game thanks to the Brewers bullpen, which couldn’t hold an 8-3 lead.

The hero of the game is Gabe Kapler, who drove in the winning run in the 12th off Jason Isringhausen (1-1) to give Seth McClung (1-0) the award of last bullpener standing.

The Cardinals move to Pittsburgh where Todd Wellemeyer faces Ian Snell at 7:05pm EDT. The Brewers next host the Phillies and Cole Hamels, sending out Dave Bush at 8:05pm EDT.
