Busch Stadium | 8:10 | Duke vs. Adam Wainwright | Box
Thank goodness Snell is going tomorrow. This was an ugly loss. Bad pitching. Poor situational hitting. Mixed results on D. The supposed new fifth starter was used as a reliever and got touched for three runs.
Ryan Doumit had a hit and threw two guys out at the plate. But he also whiffed three times. Freddy Sanchez had three hits, but Jason Bay left eight men on base. Tony Armas Jr. pitched a scoreless 8th inning.
Building on the trend of Cory's post about attendance, the Cards put nearly 43,000 in the park for a mid-week game against the Pirates.
AP recap at Yahoo! Sports - states the Bucs were 1-9 with five whiffs with the bases loaded. Yikes.
Post-Gazette - two swings and misses for Duke all night
