J.A. Happ registered a quality start but didn't factor in the decision Tuesday, allowing three runs over six innings against the Rays.
Happ gave up seven hits and a walk in the outing. He struck out three in the game. The southpaw hasn't won since May 9, but he still hasn't lost since April 17. Happ remains 3-1 with a 3.71 ERA and 1.22 WHIP. He'll try to get his next win Sunday against the Indians.
Alex Colome gave up two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Tuesday.
Things got off to a rocky start for Colome, as four of the first five hitters singled to produce two runs in the top of the first inning. Colome settled down to allow just one more hit and one more walk over the next 4 1/3 innings. He was unable to improve his 3-1 record but he did lower his ERA to 4.55. The right-hander will next take on the Angels on Monday.
Randal Grichuk finished 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in the Cardinals' 6-4 win over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
Grichuk took an Archie Bradley pitch out to right field in the second inning for a solo shot, his second home run of the season. Grichuk also had an RBI single and stole his first base of the season in the win. He's hitting .292/.320/.604 in 17 games on the year.
Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said that he has a "high level" of concern about Matt Adams's right quad injury and a disabled list move is expected.
Adams strained his quad while rounding first base on a double in the fifth inning of Tuesday's game. It sounds like he could require a lengthy stay on the disabled list, although more won't be known until he presumably undergoes an MRI. Mark Reynolds is in line to play regularly at first base while Adams is out, and the team could bring up Xavier Scruggs from Triple-A.
Nick Ahmed went 2-for-4 with a home run in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.
After going 35 games without a home run, Ahmed has now homered twice in his past five games. Ahmed also doubled in the game, raising his line to .218/.279/.311. That doesn't sound like much, but the shortstop is hitting .290 in May after a brutal April.
Matt Holliday went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.
Holliday had an RBI single and came around to score in the Cardinals' four-run first inning. The multi-hit outing was his third in his last five games. Holliday is batting .322/.434/.450 in another quietly productive year for the 35-year-old.
Yasmany Tomas went 2-for-5 with three RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.
Tomas hit a two-run double in the first inning before adding an RBI double in the third. He's now got a 10-game hitting streak that's run his overall line to .349/.384/.443 with 17 RBI.
Jaime Garcia earned his first win of the season Tuesday, giving up four runs -- three earned -- over six innings against the Diamondbacks.
Garcia stumbled out of the gate, as the Diamondbacks put up two runs in the first inning. Two more runs over the next two innings threatened to end his night early, but Garcia recovered to post three scoreless frames and earn the victory. He struck out five without walking a batter in the win. He's now 1-1 with a 3.46 ERA through two starts, and he appears -- at least for now -- to be healthy. Garcia will take the mound Monday against the Brewers.
