Theriot's suspension reduced

By C. Trent Rosecrans

Ryan TheriotCardinals infielder Ryan Theriot is serving one-game suspension today for St. Louis' game against the Mets.

Theriot was offered a reduction of his two-game suspension for bumping an ump to one game if he served it today. He agreed, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Theriot was pencilled into the lineup at shortstop and batting leadoff, but manager Tony La Russa shuffled his lineup, putting Daniel Descalso at short and moving second baseman Nick Punto to the leadoff spot.

On Sunday, Theriot made contact with second base umpire Mike Muchlinski during an argument and was ejected.
