Infield defense has been a major shortcoming for the St. Louis Cardinals this season. Rookie shortstop Aledmys Diaz pulled Matt Adams off the bag with a bad throw in the third inning against Milwaukee. It was the Cardinals' major-league high 45th error and Diaz's 12th, also the most in the majors. It forced Carlos Martinez to face Jonathan Lucroy with two runners on. He was able to pitch around it by striking Lucroy out with a curveball, but it cost him seven extra-high stress pitches.
