The Cardinals lost out on reclaiming first place entirely for themselves when they fell to the Dodgers in extra innings.
Todd Wellemeyer turned in another solid start, and the bullpen pitched scoreless baseball until the 10th. Unfortunately, the offense never could get anything going, so the team lost and had to settle for being tied with the hated Cubs.
The Cardinals return home to host the Astros after taking Memorial Day off. Shawn Chacon will battle Braden Looper at 8:15pm EDT.
