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.

Randy Choate, Seth Maness, and Mitchell Boggs combined to pitch the final three innings.

In the top of the second inning, David Freese doubled on a fly ball to left field, driving in Jon Jay. Freese advanced to third base on a throwing error by Nick Punto.

In the third inning, Allen Craig hit a liner to left that scored both Matt Holliday and Carlos Beltran.

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.
