ST. LOUIS, October 31, 2005 -- The St. Louis Cardinals were informed by Louisville Slugger today that Cardinals pitcher Jason Marquis was named as the top-hitting pitcher on the National League 2005 Silver Slugger Team.

In his third full season in the Majors, Marquis batted .310 with a career-high 27 hits, 24 as a pitcher and three as a pinch-hitter. His 24 hits as a pitcher ranked first in the N.L. and his 10 RBI were second in the league. Among his 27 hits were eight doubles, one triple and one home run. The 27-year-old matched his career-high with three hits on June 4, at Houston, including his second career home run. Major League managers and coaches vote for the Silver Slugger honorees. The last Cardinals pitcher to win a Silver Slugger Award was Bob Forsch who took the honor in 1987. Forsch also was the winner in 1980.

The Cardinals also announced today that left-handed pitcher Randy Flores underwent left elbow debribment on Friday, October 28. The surgery removed a bone spur in his elbow and was performed by Dr. George Paletta at Barnes Jewish West County Hospital. Flores, 30, is expected to begin throwing in six to eight weeks and be fully recovered for 2006 spring training. The reliever went 3-1, 3.46 ERA in 50 games for the Cardinals this season.
