Left-hander Beliveau makes big league debut
ST. LOUIS -- Right-handed reliever Rafael Dolis was optioned to Triple-A Iowa and left-hander Jeff Beliveau promoted to the Cubs, who didn't waste any time to get him in Sunday's game.

An 18th-round pick in the 2008 First-Year Player Draft, Beliveau was 4-5 with a 4.05 ERA in 34 games, giving up 42 hits and walking 17 over 40 innings at Iowa. He was called on in the seventh and had to face the Cardinals' Matt Holliday and Carlos Beltran right away. Beliveau gave up three hits and walked one over 1 2/3 innings in his Major League debut.

"I was more nervous in the 'pen than I was going out there," said Beliveau, who had about two hours of sleep to catch an early-morning flight to get to St. Louis.

Dolis was 2-4 with a 6.44 ERA in 27 appearances, and struggled in his last four outings, giving up five runs on seven hits and three walks over four innings.
