"We stretched him," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "I hated taking him that long, but we were stuck in a spot. Somebody had to be our long guy and he came in and did a great job.
"I don't think we're going to see Cleto. "He did a great job, but he threw 41 pitches. So we're not going to see him tonight. He'll probably need two days."
Sam Freeman went 1 1/3 and will be limited, but according to Matheny, the rest of the bullpen is ready to go.
"Freeman could come in for one hitter [Wednesday], I would assume," Matheny said. "He did a nice job [Tuesday]. It was just the one error that was really the only negative from that outing."
The lefty struck out left- and right-handed batters Tuesday, fanning a total of three during his outing.
"He should, he's got a nice changeup," Matheny said. "It's a changeup that's effective enough to let him face a righty in between two lefties."
