Daily Rant: Cardinals can't control late inning onslaught

The Cardinals dropped a game to the Colorado Rockies on Thursday night thanks to some late inning crooked numbers put up by the Rockies. The game was looking like a pitching duel until the Rockies busted the game open in the seventh inning. More details follow after the jump.

The Positives

  • Skip Schumaker hit a single and scored one of the Cardinals two runs from the leadoff spot.
  • Jon Jay hit two singles, scored the other run, drove in a run of his own, and stole his eleventh base of the season.
  • Carlos Beltran hit an RBI double. The double was his 16th of the year.
  • Tony Cruz hit his sixth double of the season filling in for a sore Yadier Molina.
  • Lance Lynn had a solid, if unspectacular outing. He only allowed two earned runs through six innings, but gave up seven hits and four walks.

Justin’s Jeers

Three Stars

3) Lance Lynn – Lynn did what he could, but got no run support to back up a solid outing.

2) Carlos Beltran – Beltran drove in a run, but recorded one of only five hits for the Cardinals.

1) Jon Jay – Jon Jay was the only noteworthy offensive player for the Cardinals, which says something.
