Facing Former Team Difficult For Ex-Cardinal Lohse

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Kyle Lohse has cut the cord from his Cardinals days, spending a final night in his empty St. Louis home that's been sold before starting against his old team.

By last August, even though he was having a career year, he knew St. Louis had no interest in re-signing him.

Lohse waited until the final week of spring training to get a free-agent deal with the Milwaukee Brewers, festering on the market after turning down a $13.3 qualifying offer from St. Louis after going 16-3 with a 2.86 ERA. He said the Cardinals did not contact him after losing Chris Carpenter to a potential career-ending shoulder injury before spring training.

Lohse got a warm welcome from former teammates before working seven efficient innings in a 2-0 loss Friday night.
