Johan Oviedo threw four and two-thirds innings, allowing five runs, three earned, on eight hits and three walks while striking out one as the Cardinals fell to the Cubs 5-1 on Monday. The Cardinals are now 17-16 on the season and in sole possession of second place in the NL Central.
Oviedo has a 4.66 ERA with 11 strike outs and eight walks in 19 1/3 innings pitched for the Cardinals this season. He will face Anthony DeScalfani and the Cincinnati Reds in his next outing. He is not a recommended streamer except in the softest of match-ups.
