Cardinals left fielder Austin Dean failed to catch one ball which he misjudged in the first inning. New center fielder Lane Thomas couldn’t make a sliding catch on another ball that went for a double in the first.
Nobody could catch Avisail Garcia’s second homer in two days, a two-drive into the Milwaukee bullpen. And Cardinals starter Daniel Ponce de Leon also walked the opposing pitcher, Brett Anderson, capping a four-run Brewers opening frame Sunday at Busch Stadium. .
Cardinals manager Mike Shildt decided to leave Ponce de Leon in to face Lorenzo Cain, who had started the inning with the double over Dean’s head.
