Shildt vows not to 'overreact or underreact' to Cardinals' sour stretch

A Mother’s Day crowd of 48,555 tickets sold — the most ever at the 13-year-old ballpark — saw the locals lose for the ninth time in 11 games and the fifth time in a seven-game home stand. Through it all, Shildt has preached process, stuck often with the same lineup, and, as with Hudson on Sunday, counted on players to right themselves and the team.

Hudson completed six innings, and then the erosion of the Cardinals’ lead started. Josh Bell punctuated his four-hit game with a three-run homer off John Brebbia to tie the game in the seventh.
