TOP STORY  
Cards' bats can't overcome Wacha's woes
AP
(MLB.com) Any chance the Cardinals had of rolling over momentum from their series-opening walk-off win evaporated before they could send their first batter to the plate on Tuesday, as the Cubs opened the night with a six-run first and then cruised to a 12-3 victory that evened the three-game set at Busch Stadium.

The Cubs sent 10 batters to the plate in the opening frame against Cardinals starter Michael Wacha, who walked home a run and allowed five hits in the 36-pitch inning. He was so shaky that manager Mike Matheny had Tyler Lyons begin warming up before Wacha had recorded his second out. Two-run doubles by David Ross and Jason Hammel the first of which center fielder Randal Grichuk nearly caught to keep the deficit at two punctuated the first six-run first inning the Cubs posted against the Cardinals since 1994.

The Cardinals never threatened to climb back into the game, either, as they were charged with nearly as many errors (two) as they tallied hits (four) ...     [ More ]

Eventful 9th swings game Cardinals' way
AP
(MLB.com) Randal Grichuk spent several minutes before Monday's series opener against the Cubs trying to convince a horde of media members that the tightness in his back that forced him out of a game late last week had been appropriately addressed. Whomever his words might not have convinced would see for themselves a few hours later that all is, indeed, just fine.

With the first walk-off blast of his life, Grichuk left the Cardinals celebrating a 4-3 victory to open a key May series at Busch ...    [ More ]

Moss homers but Garcia rocked in loss
(MLB.com) The D-backs ambushed opposing starter Jaime Garcia to seal a series win on Sunday, jumping out to an early lead that Zack Greinke never allowed the Cardinals to threaten en route to a 7-2 victory at Busch Stadium.

Garcia faced 16 batters and allowed 10 of them to tally a hit before being pulled after 2 1/3 innings, his shortest start in almost four years. Yasmany Tomas and Brandon Drury had RBI singles off the lefty in the first, while a Paul Goldschmidt RBI single helped add to ...    [ More ]
Cardinals intend to get Rosenthal more work
AP
(MLB.com) Concerned that sporadic work is the culprit behind Trevor Rosenthal's recent command troubles, manager Mike Matheny said he will be more intentional in getting his closer into games even if the appearances come in non-save spots.

That was the impetus behind pitching Rosenthal with a six-run lead during the ninth inning of Saturday's 6-2 win over the D-backs. But instead of getting Rosenthal a feel-good outing, Matheny watched the right-hander labor through a 34-pitch inning in which ...    [ More ]
Oh could be used in closer role
AP
(STLToday.com) Depending on circumstances, fans might see something they've never seen before when the Cardinals play the finale of a three-game series with Arizona on Sunday at Busch Stadium.

That is, they might see Seung Hwan Oh in the closer role.

With Trevor Rosenthal unavailable after pitching on Saturday night, manager Mike Matheny suggested Oh and lefty Kevin Siegrist would be on the grid late in the game, should a save situation arise.

Cards pitchers struggle, late rally falls short
AP
(MLB.com) Behind a strong 6 1/3-inning start from Patrick Corbin and RBI hits from seven players, the D-backs opened a six-game road trip by dropping the Cardinals, 11-7, at Busch Stadium on Friday.

Arizona jumped on Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez early with a two-run single by Chris Herrmann in a 30-pitch first inning. Martinez was then chased after allowing RBI hits to Jean Segura and Michael Bourn in the fifth. It was the fourth straight loss for Martinez, who had rolled off four ...    [ More ]
Carpenter's 6 RBIs propel Cards to series win
AP
(MLB.com) After squandering a four-run lead, the Cardinals utilized a six-run fourth and a six-RBI night from Matt Carpenter to put away the Rockies and seal a series win with a 13-7 victory on Thursday night at Busch Stadium.

The game had a Coors Field feel early, as the two clubs combined for 16 runs and 18 hits through the first four innings. Neither Rockies starter Jon Gray nor Cardinals starter Michael Wacha made it any further. The Rockies chased Wacha by batting around and scoring four ...    [ More ]
Wainwright helps Cards even series vs. Rox
(MLB.com) Matt Holliday's two-run double in the third inning was more than enough for Adam Wainwright, who threw a season-high 6 2/3 innings to pitch the Cardinals past the Rockies, 2-0, Wednesday night.

It marked the first time this season Wainwright shut out the opposing team. The Rockies managed five hits off the Cardinals' ace including two off the bat of Charlie Blackmon but went 0-for-9 against Wainwright with runners in scoring position. Stephen Piscotty put together a 3-for-4 night ...    [ More ]
Garcia unable to solve Rox as Cards drop opener
(MLB.com) Buoyed by Chad Bettis' fifth quality start of the season, the Rockies ran their winning streak to five by opening a three-game series at Busch Stadium with a 3-1 victory over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Bettis outpitched Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia, who remains winless in six career starts against Colorado. Garcia was peppered for five singles and hurt by four walks as the Rockies built an early three-run lead. A two-out single by Nolan Arenado plated a third-inning run. Garcia, ...    [ More ]
Cards option Pham as OF comes off DL
(MLB.com) Outfielder Tommy Pham has wrapped up his rehab assignment, but he will remain in the Minors as the Cardinals chose to option Pham to Triple-A Memphis instead of placing him back on their Major League roster.

Pham, who suffered a left oblique strain on Opening Day, played in 10 games six with Memphis, four with Double-A Springfield during his rehab stint. He finished 9-for-32 with a home run and five RBIs. Over the weekend, Pham also robbed two home runs while playing center field ...    [ More ]

Cardinals get to Dodgers bullpen for victory
(MLB.com) Yadier Molina's pinch-hit double keyed a seventh-inning rally and helped hand the Cardinals a 5-2 win to salvage their series at Dodger Stadium.

The RBI double was Molina's first extra-base hit as a pinch-hitter in his 13-year career and also snapped a streak of eight straight scoreless games for the Dodgers bullpen. While a Corey Seager home run in the eighth, his second of the game, forced the Cardinals to turn to Trevor Rosenthal for the save, the Dodgers were unable to muster any ...    [ More ]
