Cardinals place Piscotty on DL with hamstring injury

Doyle BarkerMay 06, 2017

At the end of the second inning, the Cardinals lost right fielder Stephen Piscotty with a strained right hamstring.

Piscotty pulled up with a strained right hamstring after crossing first base on his grounder to third base that ended the second inning.

Tommy Pham has been called up and will likely make some starts in St. Louis' outfield, especially with Dexter Fowler scheduled for an MRI on his shoulder.

ATHLETICS 8, TWINS 5 Jharel Cotton struck out nine in six innings and Ryon Healy hit his fourth home run of the season to lift visiting Oakland over Minnesota.

"It's about getting wins", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said after Tuesday night's 2-1 loss to St. Louis.

The 26-year old Aguilar launched the first homer of his big league career in the seventh inning, snapping a tie and giving Milwaukee a 5-4 victory at Busch Stadium.

It had been almost three years since the Milwaukee Brewers won a series over the rival Cardinals, but a major league milestone helped end that streak.

"It's awesome for the team morale and I think it's awesome for our confidence", said Keon Broxton, who had four hits for the Brewers. Travis Shaw added a two-run double and Oliver Drake earned the relief win. Derrick Goold of the Post-Dispatch reports that the team felt last night that Fowler's injury could be the more serious of the two. St. Louis (13-13) can wrap up a winning homestand at 5-3 if it can take what's now the rubber game of the series, while Milwaukee (14-14) can snap a 17-series losing streak to the Cardinals. Yadier Molina's RBI single in the Cards half of the third put St. Louis back in the lead at 4-3. Grichuk made a leaping catch against the wall to rob Jonathan Villar of a leadoff extra base hit in the third. Jimmy Nelson will get the ball for the Crew.
