September 13: Mariners @ Cardinals

Jenifer Langosch/MLB.com

Yadier and Bengie Molina have rejoined the Cardinals and, according to Yadier, their mother is recovering well after undergoing a heart procedure earlier this week. He thanksedfolks for their prayers, thoughts and concern. You can read more from him in today’s cardinals.com notebook.

Trevor Rosenthal will rejoin the team on Saturday, as he remains with wife, Lindsey, who had the couple’s first child — a daughter, Chloe — in the middle of the night. Manager Mike Matheny said he went to visit the Rosenthals today and that everyone is doing well, just tired.

It seems bizarre to be playing Interleague games in September, but such is a byproduct of the new league alignment this season. As a result, the Cardinals welcome the Mariners to town for just the third time since Interleague play began in 2007. The Cardinals are 5-1 in the first six meetings at Busch Stadium.
