Redbird Randoms ... Wellemeyer, Flores, Jimenez

On-deck: The Cardinals will try to win a three-game series against the Padres early, already up 2-0. Game time is 2:55 p.m. CDT, at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

Probables: SD-Randy Wolf LHP (6-9, 4.66) vs. STL-Todd Wellemeyer RHP (7-4, 4.04 ERA)

Callups: Lefthanded reliever Randy Flores was called up yesterday from Triple-A Memphis, as was righthanded reliever Kelvin Jimenez. Sent down to Memphis to make room on the 25-man roster were Chris Perez and Joe Mather.

Whatcha done for me lately? These are the top Cardinals' pitchers (more than one game) when it comes to lowest ERA this season.

  1. Russ Springer 2.10
  2. Kyle McClellan 2.85
  3. Adam Wainwright 3.14
  4. Kyle Lohse 3.35
  5. Ryan Franklin 3.56
  6. Todd Wellemeyer 4.04
  7. Chris Perez 4.18
  8. Brad Thompson 4.19
  9. Joel Pineiro 4.52
  10. Braden Looper 4.60
