That's another way of saying "hey the Cardinals didn't score."
The Cardinals entered the top of the sixth still trailing the Rangers 1-0. Edwin Jackson's pitch count was elevated, but Derek Holland's pitch count was far less elevated, as the Cardinals hadn't made him work. With 12 outs remaining, the Cards knew they were running out of time to score the runs against Holland that are sometimes so easy, sometimes so hard.
There are few things in baseball I love more than a bat flip after a walk. I don't know why - the batter has to get rid of the bat somehow - but it seems so ill-fitting. Especially a flip like that from a hitter like Punto. I guess for a hitter like Punto, a walk's a home run. "Look what I can do!"
Holland's at 79 pitches after six, with a walk and four strikeouts. And, of course, a shutout.
