Matt Holliday and David Freese both single to start the top of the fifth inning for the Cardinals. Corey Hart bobbles Freese’s single for an error, and that allowed Holliday to go to third. On the next play, Jerry Hairston, Jr. fails to field a grounder cleanly, then tries to shovel the ball to second and throws it away. The Cardinals score another run and have men on second and third with none out and a 10-5 lead. That should have been a double play with a run scoring. Kameron Loe, like most Brewers pitchers tonight, is not getting the job done.
Update: Adron Chambers pinch hits and drives in a run with a sacrifice fly. The Cardinals lead 11-5 with two out in the fifth.
Update: That’s all the Cardinals get, but they have scored multiple runs in three of their five innings.
