Taylor and Chapman back Mengden as A's beat Cardinals 2-0

ST. LOUIS (AP) The Oakland Athletics knew they had a big hole to fill in their starting rotation when they lost ace Frankie Montas to a long suspension. For one night, Daniel Mengden slipped right in.

Mengden pitched six scoreless innings and Beau Taylor and Matt Chapman homered to lead the Athletics to a 2-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night.

"The timing of it was great, especially after a short start yesterday," Athletics manager Bob Melvin said. "Guys know that they're going to have to pickup where Frankie left off. We had so many injuries last year in the rotation. Guys look forward to the opportunity, and it was Daniel's opportunity today."
