ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jason Heyward made his first start of the season in center field for the St. Louis Cardinals but was taken out after two innings due to left hamstring tightness.

Rookie Tommy Pham replaced Heyward on Monday night in a scoreless game against the Giants.

Heyward batted third and struck out to end the first, and did not make a play on defense.
