Lance Lynn started out the game spectacularly. He made it 3.2 innings by striking out six hitters.
Twitter was hyped up with cries of Lynn-sanity!
But then came the last third of the fourth inning and Lynn’s usual woes returned as he gave up four runs.
What made matters worse for the Cardinals on Friday? Their bats were asleep!
