Analysis: Norris, who's 7 for 7 in save opportunities since taking over the closer's role in St. Louis, hasn't pitched since exiting Saturday's appearance against the Cubs with tightness in his triceps. The veteran right-hander did throw on flat ground on Tuesday, however, and has since been cleared.

Analysis: Norris allowed homers to Andrew Benintendi and Sam Travis in the first and pitched a scoreless second. He allowed a run in the third and Rafael Devers grounded to first baseman Jose Martinez as Norris broke to cover the bag and felt a twinge in his hamstring for the second time. He experienced the same sensation while covering first base in the opening inning. Norris called for the trainer and departed. He allowed five runs and four hits in his 2 1/3 innings.
