Redbird Randoms ... Pineiro, Mather

On-deck: The Cards go for a sweep tonight at Turner Field against the injury-riddled Atlanta Braves. Gamie time is 6:00 p.m. CT.

Probables: STL-Joel Pineiro RHP (3-4, 4.79) vs. ATL-Mike Hampton LHP (0-0, 13.50)

Birds' Perch: With the Cubs knocking off the Brewers yet again, the Brew-crew got a taste of their own sweeping medicine, but more importantly for the Cards, the Brewers are now only one percentage point ahead of them in the NL Central, .556 over .555.

The Cubs remain four full games ahead of both the Cards and the Brewers as we head into the last third of the season.

Whatcha done for me lately? Joe Mather has played in six games since being called up from Triple-A Memphis, and this is what he has contributed to the parent club.
