Cardinals Fall To Braves

The Cardinals were edged 2-1 by the Braves last night in Atlanta despite a good start by Tyler Lyons. Randy Choate took the loss after Lyons went six innings and allowed a run with seven strikeouts. Matt Holliday knocked in the lone run for St. Louis, which has dropped three of five.

The Cardinals and Braves close out their three-game series tonight at Turner Field. Adam Wainwright puts his 5-and-2 mark up against Atlanta's Mike Minor, who is 0-and-1. After tonight, the Cardinals head to Pittsburgh to open a three-game series with the Pirates Friday night.
