The St. Louis Cardinals lost their 5th consecutive game last night at the hands of the Texas Rangers by a final score of 6-4. The Redbirds jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the 1st Inning after a 2-run home run by Nolan Arenado, but that lead quickly vanished when Texas scored once in the 2nd, once in the 3rd, 3 times in the 4th and once more in the 5th. The Cardinals picked up a 2-run homer by Jordan Walker in the 6th, but it was too little too late. St. Louis falls to 25-37 on the year, they are currently in last place in the NL Central. Jack Flaherty gets the start tonight in the series finale.
