Rosenthals welcome first child to family

ST. LOUIS -- For at least the next two months, Lindsey Rosenthal will be standing by for most of the late night cries of the family's new baby girl.

"Right now, especially in the pennant chase and come playoffs, she's just going to try to take most of the brunt at night," said setup man Trevor Rosenthal. "I'll probably be making up for it in the offseason. But I can take that."

Trevor and Lindsey Rosenthal welcomed their first child, Chloe Elizabeth, at 1:10 a.m. Friday. Both mother and daughter are healthy, and Rosenthal said he expects them to come home Sunday. After watching his teammates play from the hospital the past two days, the right-hander was eager to rejoin the Cardinals for Saturday's game against Seattle.

"[It was] weird. I don't like it," Rosenthal joked. "It's not as fun, for sure. Actually, I think it's harder to watch on TV. It doesn't seem like a big game when you're here playing, but [it does] when you watch it on TV."
