The Salem Baseball Tigers clinched at least a portion of the SCA Conference Championship in a lightening and rain shortened 3-0 five-inning win over the Mountain View/Liberty Eagles Thursday. Salem scored all three runs in the 4th inning on an RBI infield single by Lane Stluka and an RBI groundout by Hunter Barnes. Brady Floyd gave up four hits in five innings to get the win, stranding eight Eagle players. Salem is 6-0 in the SCA and 9-3 overall. They will host Mountain Grove on Monday in an attempt win the SCA championship outright. The last time Salem was conference champs was in 2009.

Kyle Lohse was stellar in a two-hit shutout to help the St. Louis Cardinals take the three-game series against the Washington Nationals with a 5-0 win.

Alongside the impressive pitching performance, Matt Holliday and Albert Pujols each had two-run homers. The Cards host the Cincinnati Reds for a three game series starting tonight at 6:40 on KSMO.
