St. Louis, MO, USA; St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Miles Mikolas (39) pitches during the first inning against the Cincinnati Reds at Busch Stadium. Luke Weaver gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 4.85 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. He recently described himself as a pitcher with "a mid-90s thumber". The Cardinals are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Pittsburgh and the under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. While the Padres have yet to reveal a concrete timetable for Myers' return, he told reporters he expects to be sidelined for at least 14 days. "Did everything we needed him to do".

"He's had a history of being in the strike zone, which makes him efficient, but the stuff keeps getting better in our eyes". "Things were working, so I just rolled with it". "We're talking about a team that has accepted me into their ranks".

Minnesota completed an 0-7 trip, its first winless road swing of at least seven games since August 10-16, 2001.

He left after the seventh inning with a 4-0 lead and nine strikeouts.
