Piscotty Leaves Early, Cards Fall in 10

St. Louis outfielder plays only two innings in rehab game

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - St. Louis outfielder Stephen Piscotty played only two innings in the second game of his rehab stint, and the Springfield Cardinals fell 5-4 to the Tulsa Drillers in extra innings.

Piscotty, who is coming back from a hamstring injury, came out of the game after playing two innings in right field and popping out to short left field in his only at bat.

Springfield starter Sandy Alcantara (2-3) allowed three second-inning home runs, as the Drillers jumped out to a 4-0 lead. He finished 5 innings, striking out five. His ERA rose by 0.01 to 7.12 for the season. The Dominican Republic native took a no-decision.

Jesse Jenner's RBI-single in the second inning got the Cardinals on the board, and Anthony Garcia's two-run home run made it a one-run game. Garcia scored on a wild pitch in the eighth to tie the game.

Tulsa's Matt Beaty hit a solo home run in the top of the 10th, providing the winning run and earning the Drillers a split in the four-game series.

Springfield (20-18) welcomes Northwest Arkansas for a four-game series beginning Friday at 7:10 at Hammons Field.
