The Cardinals lost a pair of outfielders, at least temporarily, as both exited Thursday’s game against the Brewers with injuries. Per Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports, Piscotty strained his left hamstring running out a ground out and Fowler strained his shoulder during a diving catch attempt.

The Cardinals should provide updates on both players either during the game or shortly after it concludes. Piscotty was 0-for-2 and Fowler was 1-for-2 with a two-run triple. Greg Garcia replaced Fowler in the leadoff spot, playing shortstop and Jose Martinez replaced Piscotty in the second spot in the lineup, playing right field. Aldmys Diaz moved from shortstop to left field and Randal Grichuk moved from left field to center field.
