Cardinals optioned first baseman Luke Voit to Triple-A Memphis.

As suspected, Stephen Piscotty will stick around, giving the Cardinals three options to rotate in right field (Randal Grichuk and Jose Martinez being the other two). Voit started out on fire after getting the call in late June, but his production hadn't continued in limited playing time since the Cardinals got healthier and he had started just two games in August. He'll be back on Sept. 1.

Josh Bell went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI on Sunday, powering the Pirates to a 6-3 victory over the Cardinals.

Bell clubbed a two-run homer off of Mike Leake in the first inning then tacked on a two-run single during a three-run uprising in the third. With the two-hit attack, Bell is hitting .261/.340/.493 with 21 homers and 72 RBI in what has been a breakout season offensively.

Starling Marte went 2-for-3 and scored a pair of runs as the Pirates topped the Cardinals on Sunday.

Both of Marte's hits were singles and he was also hit by a pitch in the game. He has shown an alarming lack of power since returning from suspension, with just one home run and seven total extra-base hits in his 37 hits. For the season, Marte is hitting .278/.342/.372 with three homers, 15 RBI and 12 stolen bases.

Felipe Rivero shut down the Cardinals in the ninth inning on Sunday, picking up his 14th save of the season.

Tasked with protecting a three-run lead, Rivero made things interesting by allowing a walk and a single, but was able to escape without any damage. He owns a spectacular 1.31 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 73/16 K/BB ratio across 61 2/3 innings on the season.

Ivan Nova earned his 11th victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Cardinals to three runs on eight hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Nova fanned five on the night and didn't walk a batter. He allowed a two-run homer to Jedd Gyorko in the second inning, but that was it until Kolten Wong's RBI single in the sixth. Now 11-10 on the year, Nova owns a 3.81 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 103/24 K/BB ratio in his 160 2/3 innings. He'll do battle against the Reds his next time out in Cincinnati on Friday.

Jedd Gyorko blasted a two-run homer as the Cardinals fell to the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

Gyorko's two-run shot off of Ivan Nova pulled the Cardinals to within a run at 3-2 in the second inning. He also doubled in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4. The 28-year-old is enjoying another solid season offensively, slashing .269/.336/.464 with 17 homers and 59 RBI.

Mike Leake was clobbered in Sunday's loss to the Pirates, giving up six runs on eight hits over his three innings of work.

The right-hander struck out three and didn't walk a batter. Josh Bell inflicted most of the damage against him, crushing a two-run homer in the first inning and adding a two-run single in the third. Leake has fallen off of a cliff since his strong start to the season and now sports a 4.16 ERA and 1.35 WHIP on the season. He'll try to get back on track on Saturday against the Rays.

Eight representatives from the Dodgers' front office including president of baseball operations Andrew Freidman were in Japan on Sunday to scout Shohei Otani.

The Dodgers, like most other teams, have expressed interest in the two-way Japanese star who may decide to make the jump to Major League Baseball this winter. Otani thew a 58-pitch bullpen session prior to Sunday's game, then went 3-for-3 plus a walk for the Nippon Ham Fighters on Sunday. The Dodgers aren't able to exceed a $300k signing bonus for an international prospect during the 2017-2018 signing period, so they may hope that Otani waits an additional year to come stateside.
