The Cardinals had a 5-3 lead in the fifth, but saw the Nationals score the next 11 runs in a 14-6 win in D.C. Kevin Siegrist and Jonathan Broxton combined to allow seven runs in the eighth inning. Jedd Gyorko homered for St. Louis. Adam Wainwright took the loss.
The Cardinals bullpen was fortified with the addition of reliever Trevor Rosenthal on Monday. He was activated off the disabled list before last night's game at Washington. Rosenthal had been sidelined since early spring with a lat strain. The Cards sent Sam Tuivailala to Triple-A Memphis.
