Cards Lose to Nats in Game One

October 8th, 2012 - By Charles Choate

The St. Louis Cardinals now find their backs to the wall, after falling 3-2 to the Washington Nationals in the first game of the National League Division series.

The Cardinals wasted several scoring opportunities during their game, at Busch Stadium, going 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position.

Washington went in front 1-0 in the 2nd inning, on a Kurt Suzuki RBI single, but the Redbirds took the lead in the bottom half of the inning.

With bases loaded and pitcher Adam Wainwright at the plate, a wild pitch allowed Yadier Molina to tie the score.

Two batters later, Jon Jay gave St. Louis the lead on a sacrifice fly.

In the 6th inning, the Redbirds Daniel Descalso was robbed of a home run on a great catch by the Nationals Jason Werth.

Washington rallied to take the lead in the 8th, when manager Mike Matheny called on left handed reliever Marc Rzepczynski to face pinch hitter Tyler Moore.

Moore singled with two outs to score two runs and a 3-2 advantage.

The Cardinals were shut down in order in the 9th, giving Washington a 1-0 advantage in the best-of-five series.

The two teams play game two today with broadcast time on 1049 KYTN set for 2:42.
