Cardinals vs. Brewers: Randy Wolf Strong Through Six

In Randy Wolf's first postseason start this month, he lasted three innings against the Diamondbacks, allowing two homers and seven runs. In other words, he got bombed, and tonight, he allowed two more homers in the first three innings. He looked better, but he didn't look *great*, and one would've reasonably expected the Cardinals to touch him up for more.

Still waiting. In the top of the sixth, the Brewers added a critical insurance run to push their lead to 4-2. Then in the bottom of the sixth, the Cardinals, facing Wolf, couldn't respond.

They tried to. Matt Holliday ripped the fourth pitch of the inning for a leadoff double. That was a good start. Holliday advanced to third on a fly ball. That put the Cardinals in good position to get at least the one run back. But Ryan Theriot struck out swinging, and then Jon Jay lifted a can of corn into center. Wolf, then, kept the score where it was.

Wolf now has a walk and five strikeouts through six, with 65 strikes and 28 balls. Put less numerically, he has been very, very good, which the Brewers needed him to be.
