CHICAGO (AP) — What do you do if you’re a major league team and you’re dragging a little the morning after a late-night, rain-delayed game? The St. Louis Cardinals sent their rookies to bring back some caffeine from the Starbucks right across the street from Wrigley Field — in full uniform. Relievers Miguel Socolovich, Mitch Harris and Marcus Hatley and bullpen catcher Kleininger Teran made the run Tuesday for the NL Central leaders.

Socolovich says the store workers “didn’t even say anything” while the Cardinals stood in line wearing their hats, jerseys and pants. He says a lot of customers laughed and took pictures. The four were given a list of what players and staff wanted and handed it to the barista, Harris said. “We definitely needed some caffeine, for sure,” Harris said.

The Cardinals and Chicago Cubs had played late Monday night after a rain delay of more than an hour. The Dodgers have sent rookies to the same coffee shop in the past two years.

 

Cardinals promote 1B Dan Johnson from Triple-A Memphis

CHICAGO (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have promoted first baseman Dan Johnson from Triple-A Memphis and optioned two relievers to the minor league team. The NL Central leaders sent lefty Tyler Lyons and righty Marcus Hatley to Memphis on Wednesday.

The 35-year-old Johnson has played in nine major league seasons with five American League clubs. He was hitting .265 with 11 home runs and 42 RBIs in 61 games for Memphis.

Manager Mike Matheny said the Cardinals wanted to add a left-handed hitting option at first base while first baseman Matt Adams is on the disabled list with a strained right quad. The Cardinals signed Johnson in early May as a minor league free agent.

 

Peralta hits 2-out, 2-run HR in 9th, Cardinals jolt Cubs 6-5

CHICAGO (AP) — Jhonny Peralta hit a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning and the St. Louis Cardinals jolted the Chicago Cubs 6-5 Wednesday night. The Cardinals trailed 5-4 and Cubs reliever Pedro Strop (1-4) quickly retired the first two batters in the ninth. Matt Carpenter followed with a four-pitch walk and Peralta connected on a 1-2 pitch, hitting a drive that barely cleared the wall in left field for his 12th home run.

Miguel Socolovich (3-1) got two outs for the win. Trevor Rosenthal gave up a two-out double to Addison Russell in the ninth, but struck out Dexter Fowler for his 25th save in 26 chances. The Cubs took a 5-4 in the sixth on Miguel Montero’s three-run double. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny and catcher Yadier Molina were ejected after Montero’s hit, arguing that the pitch before the double should’ve been called a strike instead of a ball.

CHICAGO (AP) — St. Louis reliever Seth Maness was ejected from the second game of the Cardinals’ day-night doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs. He entered in the sixth inning and was tossed with one out in the seventh, after Chicago’s Addison Russell tied it at 2 with an RBI single just inside the first-base line. As umpire Pat Hoberg called a fair ball, first baseman Mark Reynolds threw his arms up. Maness ran over and was ejected on Tuesday night.

CHICAGO (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals held second baseman Kolten Wong out of the lineup for the second game of a day-night doubleheader after he banged his head during the opener on Tuesday. Wong was woozy after he sprawled out to catch a fly by Miguel Montero in shallow right field in the fifth inning. He was slow to get up and was replaced in the seventh. With Wong out, Matt Carpenter made his first start at second since 2013.

 

Russell delivers in 3-run 7th, Cubs beat Cardinals 5-3

CHICAGO (AP) — Addison Russell hit a tying single and scored during a three-run rally in the seventh inning, and the Chicago Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3 Tuesday to complete a day-night doubleheader sweep. The Cubs won the opener 7-4 behind a strong start by Jake Arrieta, then came back late in the nightcap to beat the NL Central leaders for just the fourth time in 12 games.

Chicago scored three in the seventh to grab a 4-2 lead, with Cardinals reliever Seth Maness (3-1) getting ejected after giving up the tying single and his replacement Kevin Siegrist allowing two more runs. Travis Wood (5-3) pitched a scoreless seventh. Hector Rondon retired the side in the eighth.

Jason Motte gave up an RBI single to pinch-hitter Tony Cruz in the ninth. But he escaped with his fifth save in as many chances after Matt Carpenter fouled out and Jhonny Peralta grounded into a force to end the game.
