 ST. LOUIS (AP) -Anthony Reyes' first win for the St. Louis Cardinals since the World Series opener will earn him another start.
A day after Reyes ended a streak of 12 straight regular-season losses with a 5-2 victory over fading Milwaukee, the 25-year-old right-hander remained on the active roster.
``He'll pitch next week,'' manager Tony La Russa said.
When utility man Scott Spiezio was activated Sunday from the 15-day disabled list, the Cardinals designated reliever Brian Falkenborg for assignment.
Reyes' next turn figures to come at the expense of Mike Maroth (0-4 with a 9.20 ERA) or Brad Thompson, who left his start in Saturday's doubleheader with a blister on his right ring finger.
Reyes (1-10) allowed two runs and two hits in six innings, throwing only 67 pitches. He won for the first time in the regular season since Sept. 3 after tying a franchise record for futility set by Kid Carsey, who began the 1898 season 0-10.
``I've been up and down all year, so wherever I've got to pitch is where I've got to pitch,'' Reyes said after Saturday night's game. ``I'm not going to get down on myself. This is the place to pitch and I'd love to be here.''
Against the Brewers, Reyes looked more like the pitcher who dominated the Tigers in Game 1 of the World Series and threw a one-hitter against the White Sox last year.
``He threw strikes, got ahead of hitters, kept the ball down for the most part,'' pitching coach Dave Duncan said. ``He used his pitches effectively, and I thought his pitch selection was good.''
Thompson said the blister wouldn't keep him from pitching, but Duncan wasn't so certain.
``It's in contact with the ball, and any finger that's in contact it's significant,'' Duncan said. ``It's not a big deal because it wasn't a major blister, but at the same time it's an issue.''
Falkenborg was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Saturday to help out for a doubleheader, and threw three shutout innings in the first game.
