Cardinals Vs. Rockies Final Score: St. Louis Loses 8-2

The St. Louis Cardinals lost 8-2 to the Colorado Rockies on Thursday night as the club's bats fell silent following a pair of spectacular games to begin the series. After pounding Rockies pitching to the tune of 20 runs over the first two games, Colorado tightened things up in the series finale to avoid a sweep at Coors Field.

Cardinals starter Lance Lynn pitched well on Thursday, allowing just two runs over six innings, but the bullpen couldn't sustain that success. After Lynn left the game, St. Louis needed three different pitchers to get through the final two innings as the Rockies took a 2-2 tie and turned it into a 8-2 beatdown.

Beyond Jon Jay, who smacked a single and a triple to power the Cardinals offense, St. Louis managed to knock just three other hits. With just five total hits and one walk during the entire game, it's not surprising that the Cardinals could muster just two runs over nine innings.

Despite the loss, the Cardinals are now 9-4 since June 20.
