The Los Angeles Dodgers teed off on starter Mike Leake Saturday as they defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 7-2.

Leake was tagged with seven runs, one of them unearned, and allowed 12 hits over six innings. He credited the Dodgers for taking advantage of his errors. Via the Associated Press:

“I wasn’t hitting my spots as well tonight,” Leake said. “They were ready for mistakes. I think they had a pretty good approach tonight and they were jumping on me early. I just wasn’t placing the ball exactly where I wanted it.”

The Cardinals are 52-45 and 25-29 at home. There’s always the next game!
