Lance Lynn pitched seven solid innings Monday night to lead the St. Louis Cardinals past the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-1. Lynn improved to 8-1 for the second straight season while becoming the third NL pitcher to reach eight wins. Yadier Molina and Carlos Beltran both homered for the Cardinals.  Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina has been suspended one game for making contact with an umpire during an argument on Sunday. Molina appealed the decision and was in the starting lineup yesterday against Arizona. Molina was ejected after slamming his helmet to the ground following a close play at first base.

The Kansas City Royals open a nine-game homestand Tuesday night against the Minnesota Twins. Luis Mendoza will start for the Royals, while Samuel Deduno takes the mound for Minnesota. Kansas City has won just three of its last 17 games.
