Buster Posey will take over at first base while Belt gets his first game off since Sept. 13. The Giants have Monday off, so look for Belt to return to action Tuesday when San Francisco hosts the Rockies.
Zimmerman has notched a .286/.348/.524 line over the last seven games, but had a rough time at the plate Saturday as he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout. In his absence, Clint Robinson will start at first base and hit fifth.
Rodriguez came through with a two-out two-bagger in the ninth to plate Pedro Florimon and knot the score at 5-5. The 31-year-old is enjoying his best month of the season, with six homers, 16 RBI and a .333/.381/.684 line over 57 September at-bats, along with hits in 11 of his last 12 games.
After failing to reach base with a three-strikeout night on Thursday, snapping an eight-game hit streak, Myers started things off right for San Diego in the bottom of the first inning with a three-run shot to center -- his 28th homer of the season -- giving his club a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The 25-year-old first baseman would also cross home in the Padres four-run fifth after reaching base on a single. Myers now sports a cool .261/.338/.473 line on the season.
The 28-year-old extended his modest hitting streak to four games and was only one of two Cardinals hitters to get on base twice in what was a dominating effort by Jake Arrieta. Adams has endured an injury-shortened second half of the season, but is just two homers short of equaling the career-best 17 he hit in 2013.
The slugging first baseman now has hits in seven straight, with four multi-hit efforts over that span. Rizzo has smacked three doubles and five homers overall in September as well, after notching only a pair of round-trippers in August. His 104 RBI are a new career high and he remains just a homer short of equaling the career-best 32 he posted in 2014.
This comes as no surprise, as Ryan Howard is expected to get more starts down the stretch as a last hurrah in Philadelphia. Joseph could come off the bench as a pinch hitter, though, especially given his solid power.
Howard returned to the starting lineup Thursday after missing a few games with a sore knee. He went 1-for-2 with a walk and his 23rd home run of the season. He's now hit .272/.344/.642 with nine home runs since the beginning of August.
Cardullo will replace Gerardo Parra at first base and bat seventh in the order. The 29-year-old made his major league debut on Aug. 26, and is 9-for-35 with two home runs and nine RBI since being called up.
Bell has received significant playing time since being called up in mid-August, but he'll get a regular day off with Starling Marte returning to the lineup. It's unclear what will happen to Bell's playing time with the All-Star coming back, but the situation should become clearer in the coming days.
