Jedd Gyorko sure loves playing two

For the second time in the last six days, Jedd Gyorko homered in both ends of a doubleheader on Tuesday. His two blasts against the Mets give him seven in his last nine games.

Jedd Gyorko powering Cardinals' slugging surge

Led by the red-hot Jedd Gyorko, the St. Louis Cardinals continued to hit for power on Tuesday. But will all the home runs ultimately be enough?

The Cardinals pulled their top pitching prospect, Alex Reyes, after three innings for Triple-A Memphis Tuesday. Such moves can raise eyebrows this time of year, but general manager John Mozeliak said the move was done as insurance if the Cardinals need a starter for Saturday's game in Miami. They plan on using lefty Tyler Lyons in that game, but might need to use Lyons in relief in the intervening days, in which case Reyes would make his major league debut vs. the Marlins.

How hot is Jedd Gyorko (Yes, you read that right)? Not only has he homered in six of his last nine games, his seven homers since July 18 are the most in the majors and they have come over just 32 at-bats. "I don't think people realize how good a player he is," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.

The Cardinals, who went into Tuesday's games leading the National League with 136 home runs, are spreading their power throughout the lineup. They may not have a single player hit 30 home runs this season, but they are on pace to have eight players hit 20. It would be the first time that has ever been accomplished. Eight Cardinals currently have 12 home runs or more.

Small chance Cardinals trade Alex Reyes

Reyes and his 100-mph fastball could probably help the Cardinals right now out of the bullpen, David Schoenfield writes. Untouchable players for all 30 teams

The Cardinals put ex-closer Trevor Rosenthal on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation in his rotator cuff. Dean Kiekhefer has been recalled from Triple-A Memphis to take Rosenthal's spot.
