CARDINALS LET THE GAME SLIP OUT OF THEIR HANDS
Fri, 21 Oct 2011 06:25 PM EDT

ST. LOUIS – Many will speculate on how the Cardinals let this one slip out of their hands. Do you blame La Russa? Did the players just choke or was it just a better performance by a capable foe in the Rangers.  For the Cardinals team each player and coach is now speculating and reflecting on just what occurred.

Jason Motte stood in front of his locker in the quiet Cardinals clubhouse and said the same thing over and over: “I didn’t do my job.”

“Load the bases, that’s a really difficult thing to do,” La Russa said. “I don’t think walking him there would have made it easier for us. I think it would have made it tougher.”

Hamilton, the reigning AL MVP, drove home Kinsler with a fly to right. Football betting lines

“It would have been a grounder if I would have kept it down,” Rhodes said

Lance Lynn relieved, and Young hit a fly to center that scored Andrus with the go-ahead run.

Motte took the loss, and Mike Adams got the win with a scoreless eighth. Feliz pitched the ninth for the save, walking Molina before striking out Nick Punto and Shumaker. Furcal flied out to end it.

“It’s baseball. That’s the way this game is,” Motte said. “You’re going to have good days, bad days.”

When the Series shifts to Texas on Saturday night, Matt Harrison starts Game 3 for the Rangers agains Kyle Lohse. Derek Holland  goes for Texas in Game 4 on Sunday and Edwin Jackson for the Cardinals.

While Pujols dropped to 0-for-6 in the Series and Matt Holliday fell to 1-for-6 (.167), David Freese sparked the Cardinals in the seventh when he singled with one out against  Colby Lewis. Punto, the No. 8 batter, hit a single off the glove of Young — who played first only 36 times during the regular season.

That knocked out both starters, with Ogando coming in to face Craig for the second straight night.

Craig fouled off a pitch, then lined a single to right-center that sent Freese home and energized a sellout crowd of 47,288 at Busch Stadium.

“Kind of deja vu,” Craig said.

Two innings earlier, Furcal came up with two on and two outs and hit a one-hop smash to the shortstop side of second, but Andrus ranged over to make a diving stop. From his knees on the outfield grass, he flipped the ball with his glove to Kinsler, who just beat a sliding Garcia to second base.

“The play was ridiculous,” Kinsler said. “It doesn’t get any better than that.”

Game notes
Texas has not lost consecutive games since Aug. 23-25 at Boston and avoided a repeat of last year, when the Rangers went to San Francisco and were beaten by the Giants 11-7 and 9-0 in the first two games. The Giants went on to win the Series in five games. … Teams winning the opener have won seven of the last eight titles, 12 of the last 14 and 19 of the last 23. Of teams that won Game 2 to even the Series, 29 of 54 have gone on to win — but just two of the last seven, the 2002 Angels and the 2009 Yankees. … A night after a cold, rainy opener, it was slightly warmer, with a game-time temperature of 50 degrees. … Stan Musial, the Cardinals Hall of Famer who turns 91 next month, attended the game at Busch Stadium.
