Cardinals’ Taveras Homers in Debut

Cardinals’ Taveras Homers in Debut

Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS, Mo.) — The highly anticipated debut of Cardinals’ prospect Oscar Taveras did not disappoint the St. Louis crowd. In his second at-bat in the Major League’s, Tavares homered to right for the first hit of his career as the Cardinals went on to beat San Francisco, 2-0.

“What a great day for him, one I’m sure he’ll never forget, and neither will we,” said St. Louis manager Mike Matheny. “For him to come up and do it in that situation, it’s kind of mind-boggling.”

Tavares was ranked the number two prospect in all of baseball prior to being called up on Saturday. The 21-year old was hitting .325 with seven home runs and 40 RBI’s in 49 games at Triple-A Memphis.

“Everybody knows it’s gone,” Taveras said of his first big league hit. “That was a good swing right there. I’m so happy right now.”

Michael Wacha pitched six shutout innings for the Cardinals, scattering three hits and striking out seven. There was a 51-minute rain delay in the seventh that ended Wacha’s outing.

Giants Expect Starting Pitcher Matt Cain Back on Saturday

Giants Expect Starting Pitcher Matt Cain Back on Saturday

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The first place San Francisco Giants will receive a boost to their team this weekend as starting pitcher Matt Cain is expected to be back in the rotation this Saturday against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Cain has been out of action since May 21, when he felt a twinge in his leg while throwing a pitch in the third inning.

The team put Cain through a bullpen issue on Wednesday, and determined he was good to go.

“He’s fine, no issues there,” manager Bruce Bochy told reporters.

The 29-year-old Cain was in the midst of a bounce-back season after he struggled mightily in 2013. He had arguably the worst season of his career, but was one of the team’s best pitchers prior.

In eight starts this season, Cain is 1-3 with a 3.66 ERA. He is in his tenth season in the Majors, all with the Giants.
