MLB Game Summary - NY Yankees at St. Louis



(Tuesday, May 27th)

Final Score: St. Louis 6, NY Yankees 0

St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - Lance Lynn threw his first career complete game, a five-hit shutout to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-0 win over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.

Lynn (6-2) threw 77 of his 126 pitches for strikes, walking three and striking out two. The right-hander, making his 75th career start, retired Yangervis Solarte, Alfonso Soriano and Brian Roberts on 10 pitches in the ninth inning.

"I was able to mix my pitches well," Lynn said. "It was definitely one to remember. I enjoyed it and to do it against the Yankees is exciting."

Yankees manager Joe Girardi didn't think Lynn did much out of the ordinary.

"Fastball, curveball mostly, movement on both sides of the plate," he said. "I thought we squared some balls up and had some chances, we just didn't do it."

Matt Holliday and Allen Craig ended long homerless droughts with solo shots for the Cardinals, who improved to 10-3 in their last 13 games.

The Yankees had a three-game winning streak snapped. They won the opener of the three-game series 6-4 in 12 innings on Monday in the first meeting between the two fabled teams in nine years.

David Phelps (1-2) took the loss after giving up five runs -- three earned -- on eight hits and two walks in six innings, striking out five. The righty fell to 1-2 in five games since moving to the starting rotation this month.

St. Louis took a 4-0 lead in the third inning, scoring the first run on Matt Adams' ground-rule double. The other three runs came home on errors: Derek Jeter's wide throw to first base on Craig's broken-bat grounder that Kelly Johnson dropped, and second baseman Roberts' two-run error when he let Jhonny Peralta's grounder get through.

Soriano came close to robbing Craig at the right-field wall in the fifth, but the ball hit off his glove. Craig's homer, his first since May 9, came on the eighth pitch of an at-bat on a 3-2 changeup and gave the Cardinals a 5-0 lead.

Holliday homered for the first time since April 28 against Milwaukee, sending an Alfredo Aceves fastball over the center-field wall leading off the seventh inning for his third of the season.

Game Notes

It was Craig's fifth homer of the season ... The Yankees are 5-3 against the Cardinals in the regular season, but St. Louis has won three of their five World Series meetings ... Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira missed a second straight game because of a sore wrist.
