The Cards become the first National League team to win 30 games this season. Eleven of those wins have come from rookie pitchers.
Cardinals went 20 years between wins by a lefty starter in his mlb debut (Watson ’93, Gast ’13). Now have another eight days later, Lyons.
The Cards have 11 wins from rookies this season. The rest of the NL has a combined 36, or 2.6 per team.
Jake Westbrook threw a side session and stopped it because it didn’t feel right. Hopefully minor, can’t afford to lose him for a long stretch.
Jaime Garcia out for the year. Shoulder surgery Friday.
The Cards placed Fernando Salas on 15 day disabled list to make room for Tyler Lyons.
Lyons was great in debut picking up his first major league win and base hit.
Off day today.
