Tyler Lyons really only made two bad pitches but unfortunately both were hit for homeruns. The Cards did manage to score a couple runs but Mat Latos cooled them down for the most part. Although Carpenter and Freese extended their hitting streaks both were robbed of more hits. Freese was robbed of a homerun by Jay Bruce. Yadier Molina was also robbed of an extra base hit. The Cards will try to take the rubber game with Lance Lynn going after his ninth win.
