      St. Louis pitcher Michael Wacha leaves after getting hit by foul in dugout

      St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha was taken out after getting struck on the right elbow by a foul liner while sitting in the dugout in the sixth inning against Arizona.



      The team said the rookie was taken out for precautionary reasons with a bruised elbow on Matt Adams' foul liner leading off the bottom of the sixth Wednesday.

      The Cardinals led 1-0.



      Wacha allowed two hits in six scoreless innings, ending a run of five straight outings of seven or more innings by the St. Louis rotation.
