The St. Louis Cardinals finished July with a 7 ½-game deficit in the NL Central. They were still in the race for a wild card, but after trading outfielder Tommy Pham to Tampa Bay, they didn't seem like a team that was on the verge of making a serious run at the postseason.Then the Cardinals began playing some of their best baseball of the year.St. Louis is 14-4 this month, and even after a loss to Milwaukee on Sunday, the Cardinals are just four games behind the division-leading Cubs. Philadelphia (68-56) and Colorado (68-56) lead the race for the National League wild cards, with Milwaukee (69-57) percentage points behind and St. Louis only a half-game back.The Cardinals took advantage of a soft spot in their schedule, beating up on the Marlins and Royals earlier this month. But over the past week, they also went 5-2 against the Nationals and Brewers. So far in August, St. Louis leads the NL in batting average, on-base percentage and ERA.

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa.

Philadelphia dropped into a three-way tie for the top NL wild card."I had some cool interactions with the kids," Vargas said of his in-game dialogue.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Nationals have put Jeremy Hellickson on the 10-day disabled list with a right wrist sprain and recalled pitcher Jefry Rodriguez to start against the Miami Marlins.Washington made the moves before Saturday night's game. The Nationals also recalled pitcher Jimmy Cordero from Syracuse and optioned reliever Trevor Gott to Triple-A.Hellickson's DL stint, retroactive to Aug. 16, occurs as Washington remains without Stephen Strasburg, who's sidelined with a cervical nerve impingement.

"We don't know if it's Tuesday here, or Tuesday in a rehab stint. We don't know that. We'll figure that out tomorrow."Rodriguez, set for his fifth start with the Nationals, has a 5.84 ERA in six prior appearances.Gott is 0-2 with a 5.68 ERA in 20 games.

SEATTLE (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is appealing his two-game suspension for fighting and inciting a benches-clearing incident against San Francisco.Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed Friday that Puig was in the process of appealing. Puig was suspended Thursday by Major League Baseball after he took a swing at Giants catch Nick Hundley in the seventh inning of the Dodgers' 2-1 home loss Tuesday. Hundley was fined.Puig will be eligible to play during the appeal. He was not in the starting lineup for Friday's series opener in Seattle, but Roberts said he would have Puig in the lineup in the next few games.The fracas started when Puig swatted his bat in frustration after fouling off a pitch from Tony Watson, and Hundley said something to the slugger while still in his crouch. Puig turned around and walked toward Hundley, the catcher stood up, and they argued face to face before Puig shoved Hundley twice.That brought players out of the benches and bullpens. Puig and Hundley were momentarily separated, but Puig ducked around teammates, coaches and Roberts before reaching back to hit Hundley. He smacked Hundley with an open hand across the front of his catcher's mask.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
