Kevin Siegrist making impact for Cardinals
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2013) With a scoreless inning Tuesday against the Astros, Cardinals reliever Kevin Siegrist etched his name into a small part of the franchise's record books. Siegrist tossed his 12th straight scoreless outing to begin his career, breaking the franchise record set by Tyler Johnson in 2005-06, according to MLB.com.
"I actually was thinking about it yesterday and this morning," Siegrist said Wednesday. "It's kind of unreal to be part of history now in an organization like this. It's awesome. It's an honor to be put in these record books."
Siegrist has been excellent out of the bullpen so far, allowing just two hits and three walks, while striking out 17 in 12 innings.
