Rough Go for Lohse

Following the 2012 season, Kyle Lohse was one of the last of the St. Louis Cardinals to clean out his locker in the clubhouse–knowing that it was all but a finality that his time with the team was done. The right-hander and many of his teammates were disappointed that he would be heading into free agency instead of remaining with the team that a year before finished a historic comeback to win the World Series and came within a victory of having the chance to repeat.

Lohse wound up signing with division-rival Milwaukee and heading into tonight’s matchup, he has faced his former squad six times with only one win to show for it.

In those six starts, Lohse (1-4) has allowed 23 earned runs on 46 hits in 34 innings pitched.

While Carlos Beltran (.481, 4 HRs, 13 RBIs) has moved on, there remains plenty of other bats in the lineup that have made life difficult for their former colleague…

Yadier Molina .579 (11-14) 3 HRs 8 RBIs

Matt Holliday .370 (10-27) HRs, 4 RBIs

Jon Jay .364 (4-11) 3 RBIs

Even newer Cardinals like Matt Adams (.429, 3-7, RBI) and Kolten Wong (.667, 4-6, HR, 3 RBIs) have gotten in on the fun.

Lohse opposes Lance Lynn tonight in Milwaukee, first pitch is set for 6:10pm CT.
