Redbirds starter Carlos Martinez was tagged with seven runs, six of them earned, through five innings of work. St. Louis crept back and cut the lead to two in the eighth, but the Braves jumped on Jonathan Broxton in the ninth during a six-run inning.

The Cardinals are 58-52. There’s always the next game!
