Around the NL Central: May 13 Edition

News from around the Central:

 Yesterday's action:

  • One day after being on the wrong side of an 11-4 curbstomping, St. Louis returned the favor with a 9-1 romp over Chicago. The Cards roughed up Cubs starter Casey Coleman, plating five runs in the second inning and driving Coleman from the game after just 4.1 innings.  All told, Coleman surrendered nine hits, four walks, and six earnies. John Jay, Colby Rasmus, and Yadier Molina each had three hits for the Cardinals, who clubbed 16 total hits in the win.
  • Pittsburgh's game against Los Angeles was rained out; the teams got two innings in, but the heavens opened and the game was called after two hours.  No make-up date has been announced.
  • Cincinnati, Houston, and Milwaukee all had the day off.
