WGIL Newsroom . State Sports 120

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals recalled left-hander Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis and optioned fellow lefty Marco Gonzales to the minors, a day after he started against the Marlins.

The 26-year-old Lyons was 0-3 with a 6.12 ERA in six appearances, including four starts, earlier this season. He went on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder strain on May 13 and has made three starts since being reinstated on June 19.

The 22-year-old Gonzales made three starts for the Cardinals and was 0-2 with a 7.07 ERA, allowing one run in 4 2/3 innings Sunday while walking five. He was a first-round pick last year and is 5-4 with a 1.89 ERA in 13 starts at Class A Palm Beach and Double-A Springfield, and is at the Triple-A level for the first time.
