CARDINALS : Shortstop Ryan Theriot sat out Thursday's game after his two-game suspension for making contact with an umpire during an argument was cut in half.

  • Right-hander Kyle Lohse has inflammation in the middle finger on his pitching hand and was sent back to St. Louis to have it examined. Manager Tony La Russa said he was still planning to have Lohse start Sunday.

PADRES: Second baseman Orlando Hudson made a quick recovery from a collision with a wall that knocked him unconscious. Hudson left the field Thursday strapped to a stretcher on a cart with his neck in a brace. But shortly after a 5-3 win over Florida, he was walking through the clubhouse. Hudson went to a hospital for precautionary tests. He was likely to rejoin the Padres in Philadelphia today, a team spokesman said.

ROCKIES: Outfielder Carlos Gonzalez left Thursday's game against Atlanta during his at-bat in the fifth inning. Gonzalez fouled off a pitch and grabbed his right wrist after his swing. He was taken to a local hospital to have an MRI performed on his wrist, a Rockies spokesperson said.

ARRESTED: Los Angeles police arrested two men on suspicion of beating San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium and have concluded the suspect they took into custody in May was not responsible, a law enforcement source familiar with the investigation told The Los Angeles Times on Thursday.
