Needing a quality start to keep his spot in the rotation, Lance Lynn came up big tonight, throwing 6 innings while allowing only 1 unearned run on 5 hits and 2 walks. He also struck out 10 on the night, the most since he struck out 11 on August 4th.
Unfortunately, the Cardinals hitters couldn't get Lynn the win as they didn't do much to support Lynn. Marco Estrada kept them hitless for 5.2 innings before Matt Carpenter grounded a ball off Estrada's foot for an infield hit.
It was good to see Lynn bounce back (finally) from his recent struggles, as he was battling not just for his rotation spot but perhaps even a spot on the postseason roster.
Hopefully this is a sign of things to come for Lynn, as the Cardinals are certainly a better team when he is on.
