Hardly do teams steal a base off Yadier Molina, but twice in the same inning? Blame that on the high leg kick of Kevin Siegrist. He walked Carlos Gomez and then allowed Gomez to steal second and third. He then scored on a bloop single from Hector Gomez in the 12th inning, and that was the difference, giving the Milwaukee Brewers a 3-2 win over the Cardinals.
I think it a good throw by Molina, gets Gomez at third. Molina may have been caught napping. Hit throw was high and wide of the bag. [watch]
The Cardinals scored two runs in the first off their ace Wily Peralta after Matt Adams walked with the bases loaded. Jhonny Peralta had a chance to blow the game open, but Milwaukee was able to trade a run for two outs on a double play. That would come back to haunt the Cardinals, who managed just four more hits over the next 11 innings.
Lance Lynn went seven innings allowing just a solo homer to Gerardo Parra. Trevor Rosenthal gave up the tying run in the ninth on a sac fly. It was his sixth blown save in 50 chances.
Pittsburgh won, so the Cards lead is 2.5 over the Pirates and four games over the Brewers. The game took three hours and 55 minutes.
Manager Mike Matheny points out the obvious…the walk hurt.
