Defense lets down Cardinals in 7-1 loss to White Sox

ST. LOUIS (AP) Though it won't show in the box score, defensive breakdowns were critical in both of the St. Louis Cardinals' losses to the Chicago White Sox.

The White Sox got an early boost in Wednesday night's 7-1 victory when first baseman Mark Reynolds bobbled a grounder by Carlos Sanchez and could only get one out instead of a double play. Tyler Flowers advanced to second and scored the tying run on Adam Eaton's single.

If Reynolds fielded the ball cleanly, manager Mike Matheny said it could have "drastically changed the game."
