    ST. LOUIS - Seattle Mariners pitcher Ian Snell has been designated for assignment. Snell is 0-5 with a 6.41 ERA. The 28-year-old was replaced in the rotation by Luke French on Monday in a 9-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.More >>

ST. LOUIS - Jeff Suppan was a success in his comeback start with the St. Louis Cardinals and Albert Pujols homered a day after getting bopped in the head by a throw in a 4-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night.

Pujols is 6 for 10 with five RBIs in three games, snapping a 1 for 18 skid that dropped him below .300. He's a career .352 hitter in interleague play -- the best in the majors.

Suppan was signed this week after being cut by Milwaukee. He worked hard to get through four innings in his first start for St. Louis since Game 4 of the 2006 World Series. It was his first start since early April and, after working out of a bases-loaded jam in the first, he allowed only one run.
