Mulder goes six scoreless in rehab start

ST. LOUIS -- There wasn't any good news for the Cardinals on Sunday at Busch Stadium. But there was plenty of good news for the Cards across the state in Springfield.

Left-hander Mark Mulder, making his second rehab start on the road back from shoulder surgery, worked six shutout innings for Double-A Springfield against Tulsa. Mulder threw 76 pitches, 46 for strikes. He walked three, fanned one and retired seven hitters on groundouts and eight more on fly balls.

For good measure, Mulder had two pickoffs and went 1-for-2 at the plate.

Mulder had pitched for Class A Palm Beach in his first rehab outing, allowing two runs -- one earned -- over five innings.
