American Indian Kyle Lohse Pitches St. Louis Cardinals to Wild Wild-Card Playoff Win Over Atlanta Braves

The seemingly unbeatable have been beaten.

The St. Louis Cardinals went into Atlanta tonight and beat the Braves 6-3 in a win-or-go-home wild card MLB playoff game. The Braves had dominated the Cards this season, plus they had won 23 consecutive games started by tonight’s starter Kris Medlen. But St. Louis had their own ace on the hill, Kyle Lohse.

Lohse, Nomlaki Nation, went 5 2/3 innings, striking out six and allowing only two earned runs. All season Lohse had been the Cardinals best pitcher, and he stepped up again tonight with a huge win.

The game took a controversial turn in the 8th inning when a disputed infield fly call went against the Braves, who were trailing 6-3. Fans littered the field with bottles and trash, causing a 19-minute delay. Atlanta played the remainder of the game under protest.

St. Louis heads home to begin the National League Divisional Series, a best-of-five series against the NL East winning Washington Nationals. Game One is Sunday at 3 p.m. Check local listings for TV coverage in your area.
