Lance Lynn pitched 6 innings on Friday as the St. Louis Cardinals won 7-0.
The Indiana native allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 9. In his 6 innings of pitching, he only threw 77 pitches, of which 53 were strikes. Lynn is now 7-1 this season with a 2.95 ERA. His season is looking eerily similar to that of 2012 in which he had a dominating first half of the year. He went 8-1 last season in the months of April and May. He was 11-4 with a 3.41 ERA prior to the All-Star break.
Lynn has 66 strikeouts this season, which is good enough for a top ten ranking. It’s not too shabby.
In the fifth inning, Craig hit a solo home run.
Freese hit a home run in the sixth that scored Jay.
A sac fly in the 7th inning from Yadier Molina scored Beltran.
