|Descalso's First Homer Help Cards Outlast Marlins
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A little back and forth flap between the Florida Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals seems to be festering.
The problems started Monday night when Cardinals pitcher Kyle Lohse was hit in the leg by a line drive. While Lohse was down, a Marlins player barbed him from the dugout.
Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez says he knows who called out to Lohse, but didn't identify him. Rodriguez said yesterday that some Marlins veterans have spoken to the player in question. But the manager says if opponents can't handle the catcalls, then too bad.
Lohse says the derogatory comments convinced him to keep pitching. He went six innings in a 6-5 loss.
Cardinals manager Tony La Russa said such remarks were inappropriate when Lohse appeared to be hurt.
