St. Louis Cardinals
It was a slow night for the Baby Birds as Springfield was rained out and Palm Beach is on their All-Star Break. Peoria had enough excitement to cover the two teams that were off. The Chiefs trailed 9-5 heading into the top of the 9th. With one out and the bases loaded, Jeremy Schaffer crushed a home run to left to tie the game. Jordan Walton was then hit by a pitch and would advance on a wild pitch. Patrick Wisdom would single home Walton to give the Chiefs the lead for good.
In Aluquerque, the Redbirds were crushed by the Isotopes. A day after a drama filled game that saw 8 ejections, the Albuquerque manager was ejected again, this time in the first inning. Boone Whiting got lit up, allowing 6 earned runs in 4 innings. Oscar Taveras sat this one out. He seems to get a day off every third or fourth day. Not sure if its due to his ankle or what, but that is what I would guess.
Here are the results from Sunday’s action:
Memphis (35-36) 5, Albuquerque 12
A rough night for the Redbirds following Saturday’s crazy game which involved 8 ejections.When reading these pitching lines from Albuquerque, please remember that the stadium there is the most hitter friendly stadium in all of minor league baseball.

From a purely "win now" standpoint, Papelbon would make sense for the...

ST. LOUIS -- Carlos Martinez has been stretched out in the minors and Joe Kelly has shown he's always up to start. But if you think either will be starting in place of rookie left-hander Tyler Lyons Friday night, think again.

The St. Louis Cardinals right-hander shares his insights on jumping from Double-A to the majors.
As we near the halfway point in the 2013 Major League Baseball season, I thought we would look at the Rookie of the Year race.

Let’s take a look at who the top candidates are after...
