 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -St. Louis right-hander Braden Looper left the Cardinals' game against Oakland on Friday 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. There was nothing visibly wrong with Looper, but La Russa called for Andy Cavazos, who came in cold.
Looper had allowed eight runs - seven earned - including Eric Chavez's 12th home run of the year to lead off the fifth before he was replaced.
Looper has not missed a start this season.
