Cards crushed by Indians

Despite Albert Pujols' 20th home run and another solid outing for Joel Pineiro, the Cardinals fell short against the Cleveland Indians Friday.

The run production wasn't there. The relief pitching wasn't either. It's a simple analysis, but an accurate one.

As a team, the Cards failed to back up Pineiro, who kept them in the game, waiting for run support that was minimal at best.

The Cards will try again Saturday with Brad Thompson on the hill.
