Padres relievers lead 5-3 win over Cardinals


July 21st, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Edinson Volquez was bailed out by his bullpen and earned the victory in San Diego’s 5-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night. Nick Vincent, Dale Thayer, Luke Gregorson and Huston Street worked an inning apiece after Volquez (7-8) faded at the end of a five-inning outing. Street was perfect in the ninth for his 16th save in 17 chances after Carlos Quentin’s RBI double off Trevor Rosenthal in the ninth put the Padres up by two runs.

Lance Lynn (11-5) lost for the fourth time in five starts, allowing four runs in five innings. Allen Craig had a two-run single and 29-year-old rookie Brock Peterson had an RBI groundout in his first major league at-bat after getting called up to replace injured Matt Holliday.

Jedd Gyorko, Everth Cabrera and Nick Hundley added an RBI apiece for San Diego, which had lost 19 of 23.

Cardinals place Matt Holliday on DL


July 20th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals placed outfielder Matt Holliday on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring sustained before the All-Star break. The move was made retroactive to July 12 for the Cardinals’ No. 3, who had missed four games after getting hurt running to first on July 11 at Chicago. The team purchased the contract of first baseman/outfielder Brock Peterson, a Pacific Coast League All-Star at Triple-A Memphis, in time for Saturday night’s game against the Padres.

The 33-year-old Holliday, a career .310 hitter, is batting .268 with 13 home runs and 47 RBIs. The 29-year-old Peterson was batting .306 and led the PCL with 22 homers to go with 66 RBIs in 93 games at Memphis and is making his major league debut.

Westbrook’s pitching, hitting lead Cardinals


July 20th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Jake Westbrook pitched 6 1-3 innings of two-run ball and contributed three hits, All-Star Matt Carpenter continued his strong season with three hits and three RBIs, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the San Diego Padres 9-6 on Friday night.

A career .116 hitter, Westbrook had never had more than one hit in a game. The right-hander, who scored twice and had an RBI, surpassed his hit output for the year with two singles and a double in his three at-bats. That raised his batting from .100 to .217.  On the mound, Westbrook (6-4) scattered eight hits while striking out one and walking four.

After rookie Carlos Martinez allowed three runs in the ninth to make it a three-run game, All-Star Edward Mujica got the last two outs to record his 27th save in 29 chances.
