Walk-off in 13th keeps Cards 2 1/2 games up
AP
(MLB.com) After months of lamenting how little instant replay has benefited his club, manager Mike Matheny watched it turn a game and, potentially, a division race in the Cardinals' favor on Thursday night.

An overturned call extended the eighth inning long enough for the Cardinals to tie a game of attrition which they would then win with Tony Cruz's walk-off single in the 13th. The 3-2 victory, the longest game (in innings) for the Cardinals this season, was a deflating blow to the playoff hopes of the Brewers, who went from four outs away from a win to six back in the division race. With the Pirates wrapping up a sweep over the Red Sox, the Cardinals needed this win in order to retain their 2 1/2-game National League Central lead.

With nine games remaining, their magic number for a postseason berth has been reduced to four.

The Cardinals' on-again, off-again offense was all the latter until awaking in the eighth. Held to three singles by Kyle Lohse through ...     [ More ]

Cardinals' 21 shutouts most since 1968 club
AP
(MLB.com) The year 1968 has long been termed the 'Year of the Pitcher' as it was a season in which 20 teams combined for 338 shutouts and now Hall-of-Famer Bob Gibson posted a 1.12 ERA for the Cardinals. It also led to the lowering of the mound from 15 inches to 10 inches in order to initiate a bit more parity.

The Cardinals combined for 30 shutouts that season, a number never approached since. However, this year's staff earned a feather in its cap on Wednesday night when, with a 2-0 ...    [ More ]
Waino blanks Crew as Cards keep Central pace
AP
(MLB.com) It took the Cardinals nearly six innings to get a hit and more than 17 to score a run, but their ace bought the offense the necessary time to ensure a modest seventh-inning breakthrough on Wednesday night wouldn't be too little or come too late.

St. Louis scored twice off Brewers starter Mike Fiers in the seventh, sufficient enough support for Adam Wainwright, who twirled the ninth shutout of his career (third this season) in leading the Cardinals to a 2-0 win in front of 44,480 at ...    [ More ]

Wacha will start Saturday vs. Reds
AP
(STLToday.com) The continuing story of Michael Wacha took another turn on Wednesday -- a promising turn for the Cardinals.

Wacha threw another bullpen session prior to the Caridnals' game with the Milwaukee Brewers at Busch Stadium. Afterward, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny announced the 23-year old righthander would start Saturday's contest with the Cincinnati Reds at Busch Stadium.

Cards' Central lead shrinks with extras defeat
AP
(MLB.com) A tweak to the rotation lined the Cardinals up to employ their three best pitchers against Milwaukee, knowing that a strong series could knock the Brewers out of the National League Central race and inch the Cards closer to a second consecutive division title.

Lance Lynn rose to the occasion, giving the Cardinals the dominant start they craved, but the bullpen couldn't follow. A hiccup by closer Trevor Rosenthal cost Lynn a 16th win, and a run off Kevin Siegrist sent the Brewers to a ...    [ More ]

Motte named Cards' Clemente Award nominee

(MLB.com) A regular visitor at pediatric cancer centers and the creator of the "K Cancer" player initiative that went leaguewide this season, Cardinals reliever Jason Motte has begun earning recognition for the charity efforts he has long performed outside of the spotlight.

Already named as a candidate for the Marvin Miller Man of the Year Award, Motte was announced on Tuesday as the Cardinals' nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award, which is given annually to one of the 30 club finalists who ...    [ More ]

As he nears club record, Rosenthal made history
(STLToday.com) Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal has two weeks - a grand total of 12 games - to see if he will get the chance to finish more games and collect more saves than any pitcher in his position with the franchise has, ever.

He's already made some history. He did so Sunday.

Rosenthal struck out the side to close the Cardinals' sweep of the Colorado Rockies and secure his 44th save of the season. That is the fourth-highest total in club history, moving ahead of the 43 that Lee ...    [ More ]
Sweep keeps Cardinals 3 1/2 up in NL Central
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals used a familiar formula in their series finale against the Rockies on Sunday.

St. Louis used the combination of strong pitching, timely power and good defense to take the first two games in the series. On Sunday, the pitching was there, Jhonny Peralta supplied the power and Peter Bourjos provided the defense as the Cardinals completed the sweep with a 4-1 win in front of 44,598 at sold-out Busch Stadium. The win kept the Cardinals 3 1/2 games in front of the Pirates, ...    [ More ]

Cards won't rush Wacha back to the mound
AP
(MLB.com) Michael Wacha threw a full bullpen before Sunday's game, but Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said the club is still taking a wait-and-see approach concerning his return.

Wacha had made two starts while trying to build his pitch count after coming back from a stress fracture in his throwing shoulder. The right-hander was scheduled to start against the Rockies on Sunday, but he didn't feel right, so the club announced on Friday that Marco Gonzales would take the mound.

Cards hold on late to bolster lead in division

(MLB.com) The Shelby Miller renaissance continued for the Cardinals on Saturday night.

Again showing confidence in an array of secondary pitches, along with bashing a key double, Miller continued his string of strong starts in a 5-4 win for St. Louis against the Rockies in front of 45,552 at Busch Stadium. The Rockies scored three runs in the ninth inning, but Pat Neshek got Rafael Ynoa to fly out to center to end the game.
