It was Pete Orr (-0.215) swinging the FAILhammer hardest today, with a critical bases-loaded fly out late in the game (-0.176). In contrast, Albert Pujols' (+0.295) parade of dinkerz were the win sauce in an otherwise well-pitched match.  Elijah Dukes (+0.167) was on base constantly, but it wasn't enough against Cards pitchers who allowed only four hits (+0.599 among the starter and 3 relievers).
