Leake's slow start digs Cards early hole
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals' streak of 13 consecutive quality starts came to an abrupt end on Saturday when Mike Leake posted the rotation's shortest start in more than a month to put his team in too big an early hole.

The five runs Leake surrendered over the first two innings were enough to produce a 5-4 Mariners' victory and send Leake to his earliest exit as a member of the organization. Of the 22 batters Leake faced, 12 reached base.

"I wasn't locating it well all night," Leake said. "They had a pretty good approach, I felt like. They came out and attacked early. I couldn't get in a groove to counteract it. They did a good job."

Leake's night started auspiciously enough as he induced a pair of ground ball outs to open the first. The ground balls continued to pile up; the outs, however, did not. All five runs Seattle scored off him came via ground balls some that snuck through holes, others that weren't fielded cleanly.

Cardinals remove Rosenthal as closer
(MLB.com) A day after watching Trevor Rosenthal blow his third season save by allowing three ninth-inning runs, manager Mike Matheny met with the right-hander on Saturday to inform him that the team will be using him in a different role.

The move will bump Rosenthal out of a closer's job that has been his since late in 2013. He led the Majors with 93 saves from 2014-15, but has had a jagged run through the first half of this season. Hurt by sporadic work early in the year, Rosenthal continues ...    [ More ]
Could Cardinals make a change at closer?
AP
(MLB.com) A month that opened with manager Mike Matheny insisting that there would be no changes coming to the closer's role is now nearing an end with growing uncertainty surrounding that spot.

After nudging their way ahead of the Mariners during a three-run eighth, the Cardinals watched it all dissolve for naught as Trevor Rosenthal failed to retire any of the three batters he faced in the ninth. Adam Lind's walk-off blast capped the comeback by the Mariners, who grabbed a 4-3 win in ...    [ More ]
Cardinals lose late lead in loss to Mariners
AP
(MLB.com) SEATTLE - Adam Lind launched a three-run walkoff homer off Cardinals' closer Trevor Rosenthal as the Mariners snapped a six-game losing streak with a dramatic 4-3 win Friday at Safeco Field.

The Cardinals scored three runs in the eighth inning without a hit to pull into a 3-1 lead before the Mariners erupted with a double by Kyle Seager, a walk by Dae-Ho Lee and Lind's 11th homer of the season.

Mariners left-hander Wade LeBlanc, making his first MLB appearance since 2014, ...    [ More ]
Adams scratched with lower back tightness
(MLB.com) Matt Adams was a game-time scratch by the Cardinals on Friday due to lower back tightness. He was replaced at first base by Jedd Gyorko, whose only previous start at that position came a week ago.

Manager Mike Matheny's original lineup for his club's series opener in Seattle featured Adams as the team's sixth-hole hitter. Brandon Moss replaced him in that batting order spot, while Gyorko slid into the No. 8 place.

Grichuk seeing some gains in Triple-A
(MLB.com) The results have thus far been mixed for Cardinals' outfielder Randal Grichuk, who, six games into his Minor League demotion, has shown flashes of power but continued struggles with his plate discipline.

Since being optioned to Triple-A Memphis last Saturday, Grichuk is 5-for-18. He's hit a pair of homers and driven in seven. He's also struck out seven times, an indicator that he's still working through the same pitch-recognition issues that plagued him in the Majors.

Cards ride 5-run 6th to sweep of Cubs
(MLB.com) The Cardinals made sure the Cubs know they're not going to hand over the National League Central without a fight. Matt Carpenter hit a two-run double and Aledmys Diaz smacked a two-run homer to back Michael Wacha in St. Louis' 7-2 victory over Chicago on Wednesday and complete a sweep in front of 41,058.

The Cubs now have lost three in a row, matching their longest losing streak of the year, and the Cardinals pulled within 9 1/2 games in the standings. This is the first time St. ...    [ More ]

Waino wins in Wrigley as Cards hammer HRs
AP
(MLB.com) It was payback time for the Cardinals. After losing four of six games at Busch Stadium to the Cubs, the Cardinals and Adam Wainwright spoiled the party in front of 41,616 at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night with a 4-3 victory.

It evened the season series against the division rivals at 4-4 and moved St. Louis to 10 1/2 games behind the first-place Cubs.

Matt Carpenter belted a solo homer in the third inning and Matt Holliday followed one batter later with a two-run shot to ...    [ More ]
Wong moves to center to help Cardinals
(MLB.com) Kolten Wong still sees himself as a second baseman, but understands why the Cardinals are giving him a look as a center fielder.

His speed and athleticism make him more valuable to the Cardinals, who'd like to give him a chance to play more often with Matt Carpenter making the bulk of starts at second. Wong, who played center field in college, made his second start in center for St. Louis on Tuesday against the Cubs. It's an idea that was hatched a couple games into Wong's recent ...    [ More ]
Garcia trumps Lackey as Cards edge Cubs
AP
(MLB.com) After losing five in a row at home, the Cardinals got back on track on the road against the division-rival Cubs. Brandon Moss and Jhonny Peralta hit solo home runs to back Jaime Garcia and lift St. Louis to a 3-2 victory over Chicago on Monday night in front of 41,166 at Wrigley Field.

Garcia struck out six over 6 2/3 innings and outlasted John Lackey, who took the loss in his third meeting this season against his former team. The Cubs right-hander was paired with catcher Willson ...    [ More ]
