Cardinals 1, Braves 2: Poor Kyles

Cardinals (14-7)100000000130
Braves (10-10)00000002-260
W: Moylan (1-1) L: McClellan (1-1) S: Gonzalez (3)


The St. Louis Cardinals sent out Kyle Lohse against the Braves last night, hoping to continue their dominance.

Lohse did. He lowered his ERA to 1.97 with a 6-inning shutout performance. Unfortunately for him, there was another Kyle who couldn’t match those zeros.

Kyle McClellan came on in the 8th with the Cardinals leading 1-0, thanks to an RBI by Yadier Molina. And then McClellan couldn’t even make it out of the inning. He walked 3 to load the bases and then gave up a single to Matt Diaz that sealed the Cardinals’ fate.

I guess Cardinals fans will just have to deal with still having 1st place all to themselves.

    Interestingly, I believe the Cards lead the NL in defense and hitting, which are our two weakest suits at this point.
