The Cardinals got a good performance from Kyle Lohse last night.  Too bad the offense and bullpen failed to give him much support.

Lance Berkman’s walk-off homer in the ninth blasted Houston past St. Louis 3-2, and dropped the Cards to four and a half games behind the Brewers in the Wild Card race.

Lohse certainly did his part, permitting just two Astros to cross the plate in his eight innings of work.

Russ Springer allowed Berkman’s solo shot in the ninth, dropping his record to 2-1.
