It's one-nothing. But it was base-running that did St. Louis in.
Bottom of of the first, Ramirez catches the Jim Edmonds fly ball, and easily guns down Larry Walker at the plate to end the inning. The key play came in the bottom of the third.
Runners on 2nd and 3rd, when Walker grounds out to first.
Normally an easy score, but not only does Jeff Suppan (SOO-pahn) not go for home, he gets caught off third. The Cards never recover.
