Kyle Lohse has been brilliant with only one baserunner allowed -- thanks to a batter hit by a pitch on a bunt attempt -- and the Cardinals are holding on to a three-run lead through six innings.
But I am a bit nervous about the fact that the Redbirds have been robbed of at least two runs by line drives right at Miami defenders.
What a difference there is between a 3-0 lead and a 5-0 lead.
I wonder how long new skipper Mike Matheny will let Lohse go in his first start of the season...
