- In need of a starter for Sunday's game against the Rockies, the Cardinals turned to 22-year-old Marco Gonzales, and he did not let them down, pitching the team to a 4-1 victory. The rookie left-hander struck out nine in just 5 2/3 innings as the Cardinals maintained their 3 1/2 game lead over the Pirates in the NL Central.
- The Cardinals will have today off before opening a three-game series against the Brewers Tuesday night at Busch Stadium.
- Greg Zuerlein's fourth field goal of the game, a 38-yarder with 38 seconds to play, lifted the Rams to a 19-17 win over the Bucs Sunday in Tampa Bay. Austin Davis made his first NFL start at quarterback and completed 22 of 29 passes for 235 yards, 64 coming on the final game-winning drive.
- The Missouri Tigers moved up two spots to 18th in this week's Associated Press college football poll after their 38-10 win over Central Florida on Saturday. The 3-0 Tigers host Indiana in Columbia next Saturday in their final non-conference game.
