Gyorko scratched from lineup with sore hand

ATLANTA (AP) St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Jedd Gyorko has been scratched from Saturday night's lineup because of a sore right hand.

Gyorko took a bad hop off his throwing hand in the second inning of Friday's 10-0 win over the Atlanta Braves. He left in the bottom of the sixth after going 2 for 4 with one RBI.

Gyorko leads St. Louis with six homers and is second on the team with 27 hits. Greg Garcia replaced him in the lineup.
