Peter Bourjos went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in the Cardinals' 6-4 win over the Pirates on Tuesday.
Making a spot start in center field, Bourjos singled and scored in both the second and fourth innings against Pirates starter Jeff Locke. He's got his average up to .233, but Jon Jay's strong hitting has relegated Bourjos to a backup role this season.
Starlin Castro (ankle) has undergone additional X-rays and an MRI.
Initial tests performed on Castro's left ankle revealed no fracture, but more exams were ordered to get a clearer picture on the situation. The Cubs will reveal the results of the tests on Wednesday. Obviously, they're going to proceed cautiously with the shortstop no matter what the exams reveal.
Starling Marte hit his 10th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.
Marte hit the home run, a two-run shot, off Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright in the seventh inning. It was his only hit in four at-bats. Marte is now hitting .273/.346/.429 with 46 RBI to go with his 10 home runs.
Pat Neshek earned his fifth save of the season in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.
With Trevor Rosenthal having pitched in back-to-back games, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny turned to Neshek to close out the Pirates on Tuesday. Neshek took care of the Bucs in order to earn the save. He owns a 1.37 ERA and 0.66 WHIP and remains the Cardinals' top choice for saves when Rosenthal is unavailable or ineffective.
Randal Grichuk went 3-for-4 in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.
Grichuk got the start against left-hander Jeff Locke and responded with the first multi-hit game -- let alone three-hit game -- of his MLB career. He struggled mightily in his first go-round with the Cardinals, but he's 8-for-20 (.400) since being recalled on August 26. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny is putting Grichuk in positions to succeed, starting him fairly regularly against lefties, and he's a decent NL-only play when a southpaw is on the mound.
