Cardinals, predictably, are blanked after scoring 14 the night before

ATLANTA _That euphoric feeling ensuing from the Cardinals scoring 17 runs, or 14 runs, both of which they have done in the past week, apparently is of the 24-hour variety.

When the Cardinals scored 17 in beating Pittsburgh last Thursday, they scored two runs in the next two games, both losses. After the Cardinals scored 14 runs in beating Atlanta at SunTrust Park on Tuesday, they failed to score Wednesday, falling 4-0 to Braves righthander Mike Siroka, whom they were facing for the first time.

This was the 10th loss in 13 games for the Cardinals, who have scored one run or none in seven of those games.
