Houston starter Bud Norris has always pitched well against the Cardinals and today was no different. He didn’t last very long, going just five innings, but he struck out a career high nine as the Cardinals were unable to sweep the Astros losing this afternoon 5-1.
The Astros picked up their first win of the year, but it is another series win for the Cardinals. Kyle Lohse has a solid outing, allowing two runs on five hits over seven innings. Mitchell Boggs proved the bullpen is still a work in progress, he got tagged for three runs on four hits. David Freese had the Cardinals lone RBI. The Mets are in starting a three game series tomorrow.
