Ankle issue has Cardinals SP Lance Lynn scratched Friday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:57 pm ET) Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn will not be a starting pitcher this weekend as first planned. He has been skipped in the rotation due to a mild ankle sprain, per KMOV. Lynn had been scheduled to pitch Friday in the opener of a key series against Pittsburgh.

The right-hander is coming off one of his finest performances of the season when he tossed seven shutout innings in San Francisco.

His injury is not considered serious, so he appears likely to pitch against the Cubs in another important set next week.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The home run was his 27th of the year and his second in as many games. It was also his 10th go-ahead home run of the season. 

Overall, Votto is hitting a ridiculous .429 with four homers and 10 RBI over his last 10 games.
