Lynn Sharp As Cards Cruise Past Reds
(St. Louis, MO) -- The Cardinals scored four times in the sixth inning to back six stellar frames from Lance Lynn in a 5-1 win over the Reds at Busch Stadium. Lynn struck out 10 while allowing just four hits and a walk for the win. Matt Adams' pinch-homer erased a 1-0 deficit for St. Louis. Allen Craig and Carlos Beltran also knocked in runs for the Redbirds.
The Cardinals and Reds play the rubber match of their three-game series this afternoon at Busch Stadium. First pitch is set for 12:45 p.m., with Jake Westbrook slated to oppose Homer Bailey. The Reds won Monday's opener 13-4 before the Cards bounced back last night to win 5-1. Cincinnati is 5-3, while St. Louis is 4-4.
The jury is still out on whether Cardinals closer Jason Motte will be able to pitch this season. An MRI exam showed no real improvement in the strained right elbow that has sidelined Motte since late March. General Manager John Mozeliak says they should know by early May whether Motte will need reconstructive surgery.
Cubs Rally Late To Beat Brewers
(Chicago, IL) -- Scott Hairston's sac-fly scored the go-ahead run in the eighth as the Cubs beat the Brewers 6-3 at Wrigley Field. David DeJesus added a two-run single for Chicago, which scored twice in the seventh to tie the game at three. DeJesus finished 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored for the Cubs, who are 3-5. The rubber match is today at 7:05 p.m.
Washington Edges White Sox
(Washington) -- Jayson Werth entered this season with questions about his wrist, after he missed 75 games last season following a May injury. Adam LaRoche entered Tuesday's game with no hits in his first 13 at bats this season and missed the previous two games due to back issues.
But the Washington sluggers came through in impressive fashion as they combined for three home runs in an 8-7 win against the White Sox in the first game of a three-game series despite only five innings from Nationals' starter Gio Gonzalez.
Angels' Weaver To Miss 4-to-6 Weeks With Elbow Fracture
(Anaheim, CA) -- Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver is on the 15-day disabled list with a fracture in his non-pitching elbow. The right-hander was hurt Sunday against Texas when he fell while trying to avoid a line drive. The non-displaced radial head fracture in the elbow is expected to keep Weaver out of action four-to-six weeks.
