Cardinals bullpen blows lead, Pirates walk-off again

Cardinals bullpen blows lead, Pirates walk-off again

Andrew McCutchen's run-scoring single put Pittsburgh ahead in the fifth, and Matt Carpenter's RBI double tied the score in the fifth. He should continue to hit leadoff against right-handed pitching.

This, they said, was not the same Lynn the Pirates had seen in St. Louis on June 24 when they had pounded the 30-year-old Cardinals right-hander for seven runs in 5 2/3 innings. Rather than go with righty Phil Gosselin or play Freese in a day game after a night game, manager Clint Hurdle started the switch-hitting Moroff at third.

Wade LeBlanc (4-2) pitched a hitless ninth. We got him the last time.

The Cardinals and Pirates are both trying to find something resembling traction in hopes of remaining within striking distance of Milwaukee in the middling NL Central.

The Cardinals will begin the second half of the season in Pittsburgh for a three game series with the Pirates.

The momentum came to a halt against Lynn.

Lynn was pulled with one out in the seventh after giving up consecutive hits to Cervelli and Jordy Mercer. Harrison is hitting just.119 this month after going 0 for 4. He is now in Triple-A Indianapolis and entered Saturday hitting.270 with one home run and three RBIs in 10 starts for Indianapolis and Class-A Bradenton. "If he's challenged for a few games, we might need to back away".

Magneuris Sierra had four hits to lead the Cardinals offense in the loss. The under is 8-1 in Pittsburgh last 9 home games and the under is 20-6-2 in Pittsburgh last 28 overall while the under is 20-6-2 in Pittsburgh last 28 on grass. He has reached safely in nine straight games to start his big league career, the first Cardinals player to accomplish the feat.

Jose Quintana to Cubs among most notable crosstown trades
As for his early-season struggles, which produced a 5.60 ERA through the end of May, the Cubs say they aren't concerned. Usually it occurs via the top of the draft or global moves similar with what we did with Luis Robert a few weeks back.
