Ankiel remains out of Cardinals' lineup
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Rick Ankiel remained out of the St. Louis Cardinals' lineup Wednesday night, two days after crashing headfirst into the center-field wall while making a running catch.

Manager Tony La Russa said the Cardinals would likely wait a few more days before deciding on whether to put Ankiel on the 15-day disabled list. The decision depends on his improvement.

La Russa says Ankiel is "more sore in some places and not as sore other places."

Ankiel watched from the dugout during Tuesday's loss to the Phillies. La Russa said it was highly unlikely Ankiel could play Thursday in the finale of a four-game homestand.

Rookie Colby Rasmus started in center field the second straight game, batting ninth against the Pirates.
