Cardinals vs. Brewers: Lance Lynn Spins Scoreless Seventh

The Brewers last had life in the top of the fifth, when they scored a run and had two on with two out. Then Tony La Russa went to his bullpen, and the Brewers have all but flat-lined since. Octavio Dotel picked up a strikeout to end that jam, then turned in a perfect top of the sixth.

The Cardinals added a run to go up 5-1 in the bottom of the sixth, and La Russa sent Lance Lynn out to pitch the top of the seventh. How did the Brewers do? Not great! As implied like just a few seconds ago.

Carlos Gomez flew out to kick things off. Jonathan Lucroy followed with a ground ball single up the middle, which wasn't exactly a spark, but it wasn't not a spark. It was something. But it was something that was almost immediately erased, because Nyjer Morgan came up to pinch-hit for Chris Narveson, and after falling behind 0-2, Morgan hit a sharp bouncer to third, where David Freese began the inning-ending 5-4-3 double play.

So now the Brewers are down to six outs to score at least four runs. Everybody talks about the Miller Park home-field advantage; it's looking like the Brewers are gonna need to count on that.
