Cardinals vs. Rockies, June 7

How perfect is it that Sunday was pooches in the park day when the Cardinals unleashed a dog of a game on their weary fans?

The birds are in full fledged collapse mode, and they need to pull out of this dive before they've dug a hole they can't get out of.

They really need an offensive infusion. But, while we all hold our breath for that to happen, the Cardinals need to take a better approach at the plate. They're letting the opposing pitcher mow them down without a fight. Whatever happened to working counts and forcing starters to throw a lot of pitches to either wear them down or knock them out of the game?

Cardinals Star of the Game: Colby Rasmus was 2-for-4 as the only St. Louis player to manage more than one hit.

Lowlight: Kyle McClellan pitched one inning and gave up four earned run on four hits. You can go ahead and lump three quarters of the offensive players in here, too. But I don't want to think about Sunday's bowzer of a performance enough to name them.
