A tough loss for the big club, but not too many roster moves to note today. Martinez was officially shipped to Springfield, but he won’t pitch for the Cardinals. Should be headed to Memphis and/or STL soon.
Memphis Redbirds (AAA): Won 4-0 over Oklahoma City
Adron Chambers got thing going for the Redbirds tonight, with two hits and two runs scored. Peterson knocked in a RBI, Romak added two RBI, and Garcia added two hits. Richard Castillo started and shut out the RedHawks for five innings, and the bullpen was stellar, with Tyler Lyons, Jose Alarmante, and Keith Butler keeping the clean sheet.
