Yeah, the baby isn’t the only one sad about this 2-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers.
Victor Marte earned the loss after a horrible tenth inning showing.
Marte “hit” Austin Jackson to load the bases. Pitching Coach Derek Lilliquist visited Marte to calm him down.
But that didn’t really work…
Quintin Berry hit a single to center field and Ramon Santiago scored.
And that was that…
The Cardinals got their lone run in the fifth inning. Matt Holliday hit a sac fly to the right field foul territory, allowing Rafael Furcal to score.
As a team, the Cards left 10 on base. And, they were 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position.
Kyle Lohse had an excellent pitching performance. Kind of! He pitched seven innings, giving up four hits and one earned run in the form of a home run to Prince Fielder.
The Cardinals head to Kansas City to take on the Royals this weekend. Joe Kelly will take the mound for the Cards against Vin Mazzaro. Game time is 7:10 p.m.
Let’s turn it around and win Cards! MAKE THAT BABY HAPPY!
