Cards Double Up Royals

Yadier Molina clubbed a two-run homer and knocked in four as the Cardinals doubled up the Royals, 6-3, in the opener of a two-game series at rainy Kauffman Stadium. The start of the game was delayed one hour due to rain. Allen Craig went 3-for-5 with an RBI for the Cards, who have won five of their last six. Adam Wainwright scattered three runs and 12 hits over eight innings as he upped his mark to 7-and-3. The teams meet again at 7:10.

The "Post-Dispatch" reports Cardinals pitcher John Gast will have his shoulder examined today. Gast left Saturday's start against the Dodgers due to tightness in his left shoulder. Gast is 2-and-0 this season.

The Cardinals recalled pitcher Victor Marte from Memphis prior to yesterday's game against the Royals. Marte was 1-and-0 with 10 saves and a 2.78 ERA in 20 games with the Redbirds. In a corresponding roster move, the Cards sent Carlos Martinez to Memphis.
