Jeff Locke won his 9th game of the season as the Marauders staged two late-inning rallies to shoo away the Cardinals.� Locke was shaky in the first two innings, giving up 2 runs in the 1st on a double, a walk, and two singles.� Another double and a single, aided by a fielding error by CF Quincy Latimore (not his usual position in the outfield) brought in another run in the 2nd inning.� But Locke settled down after that, and retired 10 batters in order to finish his night's work.
