Rapoport, Craig homers not enough for AA-Cards

Springfield Cardinals (AA): Lost 10-4 to the Northwest Arkansas Naturals last night.

Starter Jess Todd had one of those nights, allowing eight runs in his five innings of work. He walked three and struck out six, giving up three longballs that acounted for all but one of the Naturals' runs. A grand slam was part of the nightmarish equation.

Notable hitting in the loss for the AA-Cards:


  • Allen Craig went 2-for-4 with a home run.
  • James Rapoport went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer.
  • Daryl Jones went 2-for-4 and scored a run.
