Lance Lynn now leads all major-league pitchers with 7 wins. Carlos Beltran (okay, with each passing day, I’m proven more wrong) leads the NL with 14 home runs. David Freese snapped out of his slump, going 2 for 4 with his 9th home run and an RBI single.
The night didn’t begin all that well, as Lynn gave up a home run to the first batter he faced and allowed two more runs in the top of the 1st inning. In all, he allowed 3 hits, 3 runs, walked one batter and hit another before getting off the field. But the Redbirds rebounded with 3 of their own in the bottom of the inning, then added 3 more.
Next up, the Phils, then to Atlanta, hopefully to even the score.
