ST. LOUIS (AP) -Cardinals left-hander Mark Mulder, trying to come back from two shoulder operations, pitched six scoreless innings for Double-A Springfield on Sunday in his second rehabilitation outing.
Mulder allowed three hits, walked three and struck out one, and needed only 76 pitches while facing Tulsa. He also picked off two runners at first.
Mulder has been limited to 20 starts in the majors over the last two seasons. He could rejoin the St. Louis rotation after one more rehab start.
He made only three starts last year before undergoing a second surgery in September, going 0-3 with a 12.27 ERA. He was 6-7 with a 7.14 ERA in 2006.
Before 2006, Mulder won 15 or more games five consecutive seasons for Oakland and St. Louis.
