With the stingy Kyle Lohse on the hill, they may have a good chance to extend their winning streak to a season-best five Tuesday night at Marlins Park.

But then the season quickly took a turn for the worse as several key players got hurt and the Cardinals lost the division lead.
However, the Cardinals looked a lot more like the team of April this week...

Nothing has changed in the timeline for his return, the multifaceted Emilio Bonifacio is still due at some point back after the All-Star Break. Still, Tuesday was a crucial day for Emilio Bonifacio. That’s nice. I speculated pre-Full Spectrum Baseball Fantasy Baseball draft that Bonifacio was going to have a significant impact on the Marlins.
Heck. I even drafted him.
