Cards stand alone in first after comeback win
AP
(MLB.com) For the first time this season, the Cardinals stand alone atop the National League Central.

While the Brewers were losing in Chicago, the Cardinals were constructing their third come-from-behind win in as many games, this one a 5-4 victory over the Pirates, who are pursuing the division leaders. Pittsburgh now trails the Cardinals by three games, with Milwaukee sandwiched between the two.

The Cardinals fell behind, 3-0, early, but again climbed on the shoulders of Matt Holliday, who drove home the team's first two runs off Pirates starter Gerrit Cole and later capped a three-run seventh with his 21st game-winning RBI of the season. Over the team's last three wins, Holliday has reached base 10 times and driven home 12 of the team's 27 runs.

Cole, who had not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his previous five starts against St. Louis, held a 4-2 lead as he took the mound in the seventh. Andrew McCutchen had just padded it with a 454-foot blast ...     [ More ]

Holliday carries Cards back from five-run deficit
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals' offense emerged from its typical station-to-station ways to catapult past the Cubs and closer to the Brewers with a flurry of extra-base hits and by riding the back (and bat) of Matt Holliday.

The Cardinals, poised to open a key series against Pittsburgh on Monday, gave themselves a chance to enter September as co-leaders in the National League Central by stealing a 9-6 win over the Cubs on Sunday to split a four-game series. The victory, coming in front of 45,148 at ...    [ More ]
Holliday's swings, big eighth give Cards the split
AP
(MLB.com) Having watched the Cubs bash their way to victories in the first two games of the series, the Cardinals joined in the home-run fun with two mighty swings from Matt Holliday in the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader to secure a 13-2 win.

The win gave the Cardinals a split after the Cubs jumped on Justin Masterson en route to a 5-1 victory in Game 1. A sellout crowd at Busch Stadium watched rookie Marco Gonzales collect his first Major League win in Game 2.

Summoned to be ...    [ More ]
Masterson's job in question after shaky start
AP
(MLB.com) His hold on a rotation spot already tenuous, Justin Masterson did nothing to boost that job security on Saturday. Masterson could not last through the fifth, knocked out by an overpowering Cubs lineup that led Chicago to a 5-1 victory in Game 1 of a day-night doubleheader at Busch Stadium.

One night after bashing four homers, the Cubs connected for three more, giving them as many in 18 innings as the Cardinals had hit over their last 18 games. St. Louis' labor-intensive offense ...    [ More ]
Cardinals set back by youthful Cubs
AP
(MLB.com) In what has been a standout season for Pat Neshek, Friday will stand out as the one night he'd rather forget.

A tie game unraveled under Neshek's watch, as the Cubs knocked him around for four runs on the way to a 7-2 win over the Cardinals. It was hardly the drawn-up ending to a day that started with the celebration of Yadier Molina's return and featured a strong showing by starter Shelby Miller in front of 43,181 at Busch Stadium.

Instead, the cavalcade of young Cubs ...    [ More ]
Robinson done for year after shoulder surgery
Getty
(MLB.com) A season that included three demotions and a limited role when he was on the Major League roster has now been cut short for Shane Robinson, who underwent season-ending surgery on his left shoulder on Thursday.

The Cardinals made the announcement on Friday, four days after Robinson fractured a bone in his shoulder while sliding into second base. He had a similar injury four years earlier.

Offered the option of trying to rehab the shoulder, Robinson instead chose to have ...    [ More ]
Cards consider giving Wainwright extra rest
AP
(MLB.com) Adam Wainwright will make his next scheduled start on Tuesday, but the Cardinals have not ruled out the possibility of building in extra rest for the right-hander if there are continued concerns of fatigue.

While Wainwright has downplayed a connection between his workload (464 2/3 innings since the start of 2013) and his second-half slide (3-5 with a 4.68 ERA and 1.94 strikeout-to-walk ratio), general manager John Mozeliak acknowledged that the two may not be entirely unrelated.

Cardinals activate Molina before series vs. Cubs
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals have activated All-Star catcher Yadier Molina from the 15-day disabled list and optioned catcher Tony Cruz to Springfield (Double-A).

 Molina, 32, suffered a torn ligament in his right thumb while sliding into third base on July 9 and was placed on the disabled list the next day. He underwent corrective surgery for the injury on July 11.

Molina was batting .287 with 7 HR's and 30 RBI in 83 games at the time of his injury and he was voted the starting National ...    [ More ]
Allen Craig happy he ended up with Red Sox
AP
(Boston Globe) When the Red Sox gathered their coaches, scouts, and baseball operations executives before the World Series last fall to formulate a game plan against the St. Louis Cardinals, it quickly became evident they had to be cautious pitching to Allen Craig.

He had hit .454 with a 1.138 OPS with runners in scoring position during the regular season. It was the highest batting average for that situation since 1997, when Tony Gwynn hit .459 for the Padres.

Craig destroyed fastballs ...    [ More ]
Molina confident that he's 'ready to go'
AP
(STLToday.com) When Class AA starter and third-round pick Mike Mayers returned to the mound with two outs in the sixth inning Wednesday night, he found catcher Yadier Molina waiting for him. The big-league vet, considered by many the finest at his position in the majors, was there to give Mayers a quick breather before facing their final batter together.

Molina told Mayers to throw a sinker down and in, "hit your spot," and then watch the righthanded batter roll a grounder to the third baseman to ...    [ More ]
Molina set to catch five, then make the drive
AP
(STLToday.com) More than an hour before Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina there were already fans gathered outside the Springfield Cardinals office and trying their best to share the shade and waiting for the chance, the possibility, the maybe-just-maybe opportunity to get his autograph.

It's been that type of week here at the Cardinals' Class AA affiliate.

The management of the team opened the gates several hours early Tuesday so that fans could stream in to see batting practice and the ...    [ More ]
