Cards Bats Quiet In Loss To Twins

The Cardinals managed just two hits in a 7-0 loss to the Twins yesterday in Jupiter. Lance Lynn gave up two earned runs in two-and-a-third innings in the start. Jason Motte allowed two runs in one frame of work in relief. The Cardinals have the day off before playing the Marlins tomorrow in Jupiter.

The Cardinals will be without shortstop Raphael Furcal for the near future. The veteran is expected to visit with Dr. James Andrews tomorrow regarding his ailing right elbow according to general manager John Mozeliak. Furcal suffered a torn ligament in the elbow on August 30th, but doctors didn't feel surgery was needed for the injury.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
