The Cardinals signed first-round draft pick Nolan Gorman, of Sandra Day O’Connor High School in Phoenix. After Gorman signed at Busch Stadium, he worked out with the club & took batting practice. The left-handed hitting third baseman will forgo the University of Arizona to play at Johnson City, the Cardinals’ rookie level affiliate in the Appalachian League. In other Cardinals news, Daniel Poncedeleon is ready to make his major league debut just a little over a year after a life threatening injury almost ended his baseball career. The Cardinals bought the 26-year-old right-hander’s contract from Triple-A Memphis 13 months after a line drive struck Poncedeleon in the right temple, fracturing his skill during a game against the Iowa Cubs. Poncedeleon underwent an emergency surgery to stop bleeding from his brain and weeks of rehab and inactivity.

MLB

Miles Mikolas pitched a four-hitter for his 1st career shutout & Tyler O’Neill homered for the 3rd straight game & drove in four runs, leading the Cardinals to a 6-0 victory over the Royals Monday night. Mikolas needed just 109 pitches to remain unbeaten & struck out a career-high nine. The Cardinals won for the 3rd time in four games & beat the Royals for the 5th straight time. Mikolas retired 13 of the final 14 batters he faced. The only trouble he faced came after he allowed back-to-back singles to start the 3rd, but got out of it with the help of a double play. O’Neill’s three-run homer, his first career to the opposite field, capped a four-run 3rd in which the Cardinals strung together five two-out hits. O’Neill’s double in the fifth scored Marcell Ozuna, giving the Cardinals a 5-0 lead. Matt Carpenter homered in the7th as part of a three-hit night. Carpenter is hitting .542 in his last six games, including seven doubles, to raise his average to .210. It is the first time since April 7 that Carpenter’s average rose north of .200.
