Cardinals ace Wacha rests, Lyons starts instead vs. Nats

ST. LOUIS (AP) The timing was right for the St. Louis Cardinals to give both of their young star pitchers a break.

Tyler Lyons was recalled from Triple-A Memphis to start in place of Michael Wacha against the Washington Nationals on Wednesday, a day after Marco Gonzalez got a spot start in place of Carlos Martinez.

The NL Central-leading Cardinals began the day with the best record by far in the majors.
