OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -St. Louis right-hander Braden Looper left the Cardinals' game against Oakland on Friday with tightness in his right shoulder after getting Bobby Crosby to ground out to third base in the fifth inning.
Cardinals manager Tony La Russa visited the mound with head trainer Barry Weinberg. Andy Cavazos entered the game and was given enough time to warm up.
Looper allowed eight runs - seven earned - including Eric Chavez's 12th home run of the year to lead off the fifth.
Looper has not missed a start this season.
