ST. LOUIS (AP) -Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Ryan Doumit, who broke his left thumb on a passed ball, was put on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday.
Doumit was hurt Tuesday night muffing a high strike in the first inning of the Pirates' 8-4 win in 10 innings over St. Louis. The switch-hitter is batting .350 with five homers and 15 RBIs.
