ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Cardinals recalled left-handed reliever Kevin Siegrist and infielder Pete Kozma from Triple-A Memphis on Sunday and optioned three left-handed pitchers — Marco Gonzales, Nick Greenwood and Tyler Lyons — to Double-A Springfield.

Gonzales picked up his first career victory in Saturday night's 13-2 win over the Chicago Cubs in the second game of a doubleheader. Lyons struck out eight in 4 2/3 innings of relief in a 5-1 loss in Game 1.

The Cardinals also assigned pitchers Michael Wacha and Jason Motte to Springfield on a 30-day injury rehabilitation assignment. Both are scheduled to pitch Sunday night at Tulsa.

Siegrist is 1-3 with a 6.11 E.R.A. in 32 games and Kozma has appeared in only four games this season going 1-3.
