Cardinals vs Royals

The Cardinals jumped ahead early on a Ryan Ludwick sac fly and made it 2-0 when Jason LaRue singled in Rick Ankiel in the 4th. Starting pitcher Braden Looper went 7 innings only allowing a single run on 5 hits, but with no additonal run support the Cards bullpen let the lead slip away on a pair of solo shots in the top of the 8th. The Cards put their first 2 on in the bottom half of the 8th but failed to drive them in as the Royals prevailed 3-2.
