TOP STORY  
Martinez stifles Brewers behind pair of dingers
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals continued to feel right at home at Miller Park, as Jason Heyward and Jhonny Peralta homered and Carlos Martinez pitched seven scoreless innings for a 3-0 win over the Brewers on Friday.

Martinez scattered four hits and struck out eight for the Cardinals' 24th victory in their last 33 games here dating to the second half of 2011, including wins in two of the three games at Miller Park during that year's National League Championship Series. The Brewers have not won a series on their home turf against the Cardinals since '12.

The Brewers fell to 3-14 overall and 1-5 in series openers. Milwaukee is already nine games behind St. Louis in the NL Central standings.

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
Martinez masterful: Martinez stranded a runner at third in both the first and second innings, though that was about the extent of the trouble he had. He froze Martin Maldonado on a curveball to close the second and notch the first of eight strikeouts, which ...     [ More ]

Molina exits one inning after taking foul tip off knee guard
AP
(MLB.com) An inning after taking a foul tip square off his right knee guard, Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina had to pull himself out of the team's series-opening game against Milwaukee Friday night.

Molina warmed starter Carlos Martinez up for the bottom of the fifth before returning to the dugout. Backup catcher Tony Cruz took his place behind home plate.

Molina, who had just had a day off on Thursday, went down after taking Aramis Ramirez's 2-1 foul ball off his gear with two outs ...    [ More ]
Cards option Anna as Bourjos returns
AP
(MLB.com) Choosing to stick with an eight-man bullpen for at least a while longer, the Cardinals optioned infielder Dean Anna to Triple-A Memphis on Friday to create roster room for outfielder Peter Bourjos, who is returning from paternity leave.

Anna, who joined the team last weekend when Randal Grichuk went on the disabled list, made one pinch-hit appearance during his stay. His departure leaves the Cards with a four-man bench until further notice.

"I don't think we put a timeline ...    [ More ]
Wacha goes to 3-0 on season after outdueling Scherzer
AP
(MLB.com) Cardinals righty Michael Wacha improved to 3-0 on the season as he outlasted and outdueled Max Scherzer in St. Louis' 4-1 win at Nationals Park on Thursday.

Both pitchers were strong in their respective seven-inning starts, though Scherzer shouldered the loss, his second this season despite allowing just four earned runs over 28 2/3 innings. The Cardinals ambushed him for a first-inning run when Matt Carpenter and Jason Heyward opened the game with first-pitch hits. Carpenter scored ...    [ More ]
Kozma takes disdain from Nats' fans as a compliment
AP
(MLB.com) Pete Kozma insists he never did hear the boos raining down on him as he was introduced in a spring game at Space Coast Stadium last month in Viera, Fla. Several others picked up on it, however, and found humor that a player whose career has limited highlights still haunts one team's opposing fans.

It was Kozma, of course, who capped the Cardinals' improbable comeback victory over the Nationals in Game 5 of the 2012 National League Division Series. At the time of his game-winning, ...    [ More ]
Wong, Cardinals fend off Nationals to even series
AP
(MLB.com) Though they frittered away an early five-run lead, the Cardinals, propelled by second baseman Kolten Wong, struck late to steal a 7-5 win over Washington on Wednesday and even a three-game series at Nationals Park.

Wong had his second straight three-hit night, this time delivering a two-run homer in his first at-bat and giving the Cards the lead back with an RBI double off Blake Treinen in the eighth. In between, Wong provided a reel of defensive gems. His most impressive two came in ...    [ More ]
Gonzales goes on DL with shoulder tightness
AP
(STLToday.com) The Cardinals' top pitching prospect and first choice to come up should the team need a starter, lefty Marco Gonzales was placed Wednesday morning on the seven-day disabled list with shoulder tightness.

General manager John Mozeliak said the left would miss a start.

The Class AAA Memphis team has the opportunity to put a player on a seven-day DL vs. the major-league team that can only use a 15-day DL. Gonzales last pitched Monday so the move would cost him only the one ...    [ More ]
Missed opportunities come back to haunt Cards
AP
(MLB.com) On a night when the Cardinals scored just once despite establishing a season high in hits and placing at least one runner aboard in every inning, manager Mike Matheny, following his team's 2-1 loss to the Nationals, struggled to pinpoint many obvious missed opportunities.

Sure, there was a bases-loaded chance in the fifth that went untapped, but the rally had been entirely concocted with two outs. And aside from Matt Carpenter scoring the tying run in the ninth, it actually marked ...    [ More ]
With four singles, Holliday's hitting streak at 12 games
AP
(MLB.com) Though it came in a 2-1 loss to the Nationals, Matt Holliday extended his Major League-long hitting streak to 12 on Tuesday while matching a career high with four hits in the game.

It marked the 26th four-hit game of Holliday's career and the sixth time he's reached base in a game five times while tallying four hits. The last of his knocks was the biggest, as it capped the Cardinals' comeback against closer Drew Storen by driving in Matt Carpenter as the tying run.

Carpenter nets first NL Player of Week nod
AP
(MLB.com) Matt Carpenter's hot bat at the top of the Cardinals' lineup earned the third baseman National League Player of the Week honors for the first time in his career.

Carpenter led the Majors with seven doubles, and he hit .480 last week. The third baseman was tops in the NL with 22 total bases and second with a .880 slugging percentage. Carpenter also collected five RBIs and scored four runs.

With Carpenter providing an offensive boost from the leadoff spot, the Cardinals went ...    [ More ]
Cardinals come through late, complete sweep of Reds
AP
(MLB.com) A half-inning after the Reds squandered a bases-loaded opportunity against Adam Wainwright, the Cardinals capitalized on a leadoff double by Jon Jay to break a tie and position themselves for a series-sweeping 2-1 win at Busch Stadium on Sunday night.

Kolten Wong's one-out sacrifice fly was plenty deep to score Jay, who had moved to third on a productive groundout by Yadier Molina. Those eighth-inning at-bats represented the Cardinals' only ones with a runner in scoring position ...    [ More ]
