Walton's Game Observations – Thursday, April 28
After a 76 minute rain delay, the first-place St. Louis Cardinals fell to the Milwaukee Brewers by the score of 4-3 Thursday afternoon at chilly Busch Stadium. Despite the Cardinals' six game winning streak ending, they still took the series, two games to one. They lead the NL Central by 3-1/2 games over the Cubs. Looking for his fourth straight win, Jason Marquis opposed soft-tossing lefty Chris Capuano. Both teams seemed like they were more interested in getting out of town than playing, as hits were scarce. However, the four Brewers runs scored as a result of a home run, a double by the pitcher and walks to the number seven and eight hitters. So, Marquis has no one to blame but himself for the loss. Jim Journell had an impressive 1-2/3 innings out of the pen, though. Reggie Sanders had a solo home run on a day the Cardinals only managed eight hits. So Taguchi and Scott Rolen were each on base three times. So had a single, a double and a walk, while Rolen walked twice...
