SPRINGFIELD, Mo—It’s been four years since Stephen Piscotty played a homestand at Hammons Field.

But the St. Louis Cardinal will patrol the outfield at Hammons for at least the next few days while he rehabs his right hamstring.

Piscotty strained that hamstring back on May 4th while trying to beat out a grounder.

After a ten day stop on the disabled list, Piscotty is ready to step back on the diamond.

The trip to Springfield will help get his timing and his batting stroke back.

Piscotty says he’ll play a full 9 innings Tuesday night, skip Wednesday’s afternoon game, then play a full game on Thursday and Friday before re-evaluating his injury.

“I’ve been working real hard.  I spent the time on the DL strengthening and loosening it up.  It feels really good.  It feels good to run around.  I’ve been able to track, do some cage work, get to run around on the field the other day.  This is my second day it feels good.
You always want to get back win or lose.  They’ve been doing a great job.  And it’ll continue on.  I want to make sure I’m healthy and ready to go and can contribute,” said Piscotty.


SPRINGFIELD, Mo–Tuesday night at Hammons Field, St. Louis Cardinal outfielder Stephen Piscotty started his rehab assignment in Springfield. First inning production from Piscotty. He would ground out to short stop.  But that would bring a run in. Piscotty went 0-3 with an RBI and a walk.

In the fourth inning Jacob Wilson with a runner on. And he blasts a two run homer to left center. Cardinals take a 4-0 lead.

And then in the bottom of the sixth. It’s Casey Grayson’s turn at the long ball. Solo homer to left.

And the Springfield Cardinals go on to win 5-2.


 NIXA, Mo–Over at Nixa, it’s the district finals between Kickapoo and Ozark.

A big second inning for the Chiefs. Charles Kelley hits a sacrifice fly to center. Cole McCarville tags and scores. That ties the game at two.

Later Kickapoo breaks it open, Andrew Kauffman singles to center. Chandler Jones scores. Chiefs up 6-2.

And then, Mason Auer ropes a triple to deep left field. Two more Chiefs come home to score.

Kickapoo wins the district title 14-7 over Ozark.
