SAN DIEGO — Not even a lefty could help the Cardinals unlock this consuming funk.
The Cardinals' search for any semblance of sustained offense will have to continue Thursday afternoon because Wednesday, like Tuesday and the Sunday before it, were as fruitless as they were scoreless. Groundhog Days are supposed to be more productive. San Diego lefty Blake Snell toyed with a no-hitter and had the compliant lineup to do it against as he led the Padres to a 1-0 victory Wednesday at Petco Park. The Cardinals were shut out for the third consecutive game.
