Matt Carpenter is sitting out Wednesday's series finale against the Braves.

Carpenter, still considered a legitimate National League MVP candidate, is 4-for-33 with 13 strikeouts and one extra-base hit since September 9. He'll grab a day of physical and mental rest, with Kolten Wong at leadoff and Matt Adams playing first base versus the Braves and right-hander Touki Toussaint.

Giovanny Gallegos is being called up to join the Cardinals' bullpen.

Gallegos was notified of the news as Triple-A Memphis celebrated its Triple-A National Championship win on Tuesday night. The 27-year-old right-hander, acquired from the Yankees in July as part of the Luke Voit trade, holds a 4.75 ERA, 1.286 WHIP, and 32/8 K/BB ratio in 30 1/3 major league frames. He'll likely pitch in mid-relief.

Austin Gomber labored through five frames but picked up a win Tuesday, yielding one run in the Cardinals' 8-1 victory over the Braves.

Gomber required 98 pitches to get through his five innings, allowing six hits and three walks (one intentional) along the way. He did punch out five batters and was able to escape a couple bases loaded situations. The lefty was roughed up in his previous outing and wasn't good in this one even though he won. Gomber will hope to be sharper his next time out against the Brewers.

Paul DeJong clubbed a two-run home run and added an RBI single Tuesday in the Cardinals' victory over the Braves.

Jose Martinez singled for the Cards' first hit with one out in the fourth inning and DeJong followed that with his second dinger in as many nights. He added some cushion with an RBI single in the eighth. DeJong now has 11 home runs and 43 RBI since the All-Star break even though he's hitting only .220.

Bud Norris (blister) remains unavailable Tuesday.

Norris left an appearance in Sunday's series finale against the Dodgers after a blister opened up on his right middle finger. It's unclear at this point when he might be ready to return. Carlos Martinez is likely unavailable too for the second of three games against the Braves, so it could be Jordan Hicks or John Brebbia in the ninth inning for the Cardinals if they have the lead.

Yadier Molina homered and talling three total RBI Monday in the Cardinals' win over the Braves.

Molina drove home the first run of the night on a bases-loaded hit-by-pitch in the top of the first inning and he capped off a big 11-6 victory for St. Louis with a two-run shot off Arodys Vizcaino in the top of the ninth. The home run was the 18th of the season for Molina, who's slashing .270/.323/.445 in 113 games at age 36.

Kolten Wong went 3-for-5 with a double, a homer, and three RBI in the Cardinals' defeat of the Braves on Monday.

Wong plated two runs on a double to right field in the Cardinals' three-run first inning before belting a no-doubt solo shot off Braves right-hander Mike Foltynewicz in the top of the fourth inning. The 27-year-old second baseman is enjoying a nice second half for the Wild Card-hunting Cardinals.
Sep 17 - 11:30 PM

Miles Mikolas earned his 16th win of the season on Monday night against the Braves.

Mikolas struck out six and yielded just one walk. The two runs he gave up came on a home run by Freddie Freeman in the bottom of the third. Mikolas, one of the best signings of the offseason, is 16-4 with a 3.01 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 132/29 K/BB ratio in 185 2/3 innings (30 starts) this year with St. Louis. He'll get the Giants at home next.
Sep 17 - 11:24 PM

Paul DeJong hit a two-run homer in the Cardinals' 11-6 defeat of the Braves on Monday.

He also doubled in the game, finishing 2-for-4 with two RBI and one run scored. It's been a disappointing season overall for DeJong, but he does have 40 RBI over his last 51 games dating back to July 21 and he's now up to 18 home runs in 104 total games this year.
Sep 17 - 11:22 PM

Bud Norris (blister) is unavailable to pitch Monday.

Norris had to exit an appearance Sunday with a blister on his right middle finger and has to wait for it to heal before he can pitch again. He's also dealt with a nagging hip issue. Norris doesn't have any fantasy value at this point with Carlos Martinez taking over the Cardinals' closer role.
Sep 17 - 6:10 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-4 with a homer and two runs scored, leading the Cardinals to a 5-0 victory over the Dodgers on Sunday night.

Ozuna opened the scoring in the contest with a solo shot off of Ross Stripling in the second inning. That proved to be more than enough support for Adam Wainwright and company in this one. Ozuna has been red hot at the plate over the last few weeks and is now slashing .281/.322/.438 with 22 homers and 83 RBI on the season.
Sep 16 - 11:37 PM

Yadier Molina went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs on Sunday, helping to propel the Cardinals to victory over the visiting Dodgers.

Molina drove in a run with an RBI single in the fourth inning that increased the Cardinals' advantage to 3-0. He then capped off the scoring in the contest with another run-scoring single in the eighth inning, increasing the Cardinals' lead to 5-0. The hard-hitting backstop is enjoying another nice season offensively, hitting .270/.322/.440 with 17 homers and 63 RBI.
Sep 16 - 11:37 PM

Paul DeJong went 1-for-3 and scored a pair of runs as the Cardinals shut out the Dodgers on Sunday.

DeJong also drew a walk in the contest, reaching base safely in two of his four plate appearances. For the season, he's now hitting .233/.310/.420 with 17 homers and 57 RBI in what has been a very disappointing sophomore campaign for the 25-year-old shortstop.
Sep 16 - 11:35 PM

Adam Wainwright delivered a magnificent performance at a critical time for the Cardinals on Sunday, striking out nine over six shutout innings in a victory over the Dodgers.

After losing the first three games of their weekend series and falling behind the Dodgers in the race for the final Wild Card berth in the National League, the Cardinals needed Wainwright to deliver and the veteran right-hander was up to the task. He allowed just two hits and three walks on the night, throwing 61 of his 101 pitches for strikes. He'll attempt to replicate this fine effort when he does battle against the Giants at home on Saturday.
Sep 16 - 11:33 PM

Patrick Wisdom blasted a grand slam off of Rich Hill on Saturday afternoon, but it wasn't enough to lead the Cardinals to victory over the Dodgers.

In fact, the fourth inning blast accounted for all of the Cardinals' offense in the ballgame as they were crushed by the Dodgers. Wisdom also singled in the contest, finishing the day 2-for-4. He's now hitting .231/.333/.538 with four homers and 10 RBI on the season.
