Cardinals on the board, but still down 6-1 in the 5th

Well, at least the Cardinals are on the board and there's still plenty of time for more.

More than one run would have been nice, though. And more than one was a pretty good bet.

Carlos Beltran led off the fourth with a walk against Gio Gonzalez, who'd been so good in the first three frames. When Matt Holliday followed with a drive down the left-field line, Beltran sprinted home and Holliday wound up on second. But Gonzalez got Allen Craig on a grounder and Yadier Molina, and Gonzalez stranded Holliday on third base by striking out David Freese.

So they got just one run, and it's still 6-1 after four innings. The good news is that Joe Kelly's pitching a lot better than Adam Wainwright did. The bad news is that it's 6-1 after four innings.
