Cards' Theriot sits after suspension cut to 1 game
NEW YORK (AP)
Theriot had appealed the suspension. The league offered to drop the penalty to one game if Theriot served it immediately, and he agreed.
Cardinals manager Tony La Russa originally had Theriot in the lineup against the Mets but made a late switch. Nick Punto moved to Theriot's leadoff spot and Daniel Decalso played shortstop and batted eighth.
