ST. LOUIS (AP) For Miles Mikolas, throwing strikes translates to success - no matter where he's pitching.
Mikolas, who spent the last three seasons in the Japanese Central League, tossed seven strong innings and the St. Louis Cardinals completed their second sweep this season of the woeful Cincinnati Reds with a 9-2 victory on Sunday.
"I had great command over there," Mikolas said of his stint with the Tokyo Yomiuri Giants. "Pitching is pitching. You throw strikes and good things will happen."
