Cardinals Blaming Shadows in 3-2 Loss To Phillies?

Are the St. Louis Cardinals blaming shadows for their loss to the Philadelphia Phillies?  It sounds like they are, and the most notable complainer is first baseman, Albert Puljos.

Last night the St. Louis Cardinals backed themselves into a corner with a 3-2 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.  They now face elimination down 2-1.  So who is to blame for their loss?  Right now it looks like they are partially blaming the shadows at Busch Stadium. Albert Puljos seems to be the main voice right now that is voicing his concern.

I just don’t understand why we’re playing a 4 o’clock game when the league knows that we have tough shadows out there. But there’s nothing you can do. They’re making their money and they’re paying their money, and I guess they put the game time however they wanted to.

Both teams did look like they were struggling to get hits early when the shadows were at their worst, but Puljos had 4 hits in the game.  The Phillies weren’t complaining, and it seems a bit odd that the Cardinals would be making a stink about conditions at their home field.  You would think they would be use to playing in these conditions by now.
