Its a bad loss no doubt after being up 3 in the 6th. Now if we don't win the series with the Cardinals we only have a 6 game lead if they return the favor on a sweep its 4 games lost in 4 days and they cut their deficit in half.
Their players and fans already think they can catch us, giving them light at the end of the tunnel is bad news. If we lose sizable ground to them on their 10 game trip then this race is far from locked down and they have a legit shot as they come back home for nothing but easy games until the final week when Washington goes there resting players and then we have to end the season there and haven't won many series there in recent years.
