Cards' bullpen can't hold late lead vs. A's
AP
(MLB.com) Playing spoiler to the much-anticipated starting debut of Cardinals rookie Alex Reyes, the A's scratched away for three unanswered runs to even their series at Busch Stadium with a 3-2 victory on Saturday night. For the Cardinals, the loss not only delayed their shot at securing their first home series win in more than a month, but it also left them unable to pad a 1 1/2-game lead over the Marlins for the second National League Wild Card spot.

Oakland took its first lead in the eighth, an inning started by reliever Matt Bowman. After Bowman allowed a pair of one-out hits, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny turned to his closer, Seung Hwan Oh, for a five-out save. Oh couldn't complete it. Max Muncy's hard grounder to first baseman Brandon Moss was enough to score Khris Davis from third to tie the game. Brett Eibner followed with the go-ahead sacrifice fly.

That lead was locked down by an A's bullpen that covered three scoreless innings with six strikeouts behind ...     [ More ]

Waino's start boils over with tough 5th inning
AP
(MLB.com) In need of a pick-me-up night amid another trying stretch in his season, Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright got little of it from his defense and was unable to generate much himself in what unraveled into a 10-6 loss to the Mets on Thursday night at Busch Stadium.

For the third time in five outings, Wainwright exited before the sixth, this time after having surrendered seven runs (two earned) in a start for the fourth time this season. What he described two weeks ago as the worst ...    [ More ]
Garcia struggles as Cards let Mets gain ground

The win cut into the Cardinals' advantage over New York for the second National League Wild Card spot, too. The Mets' deficit in that race now sits at 3 1/2 games.

(MLB.com) Though he'll be throwing about 50 pitches in a rehab assignment start with Double-A Springfield on Wednesday, Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn, who is little more than nine months removed from Tommy John surgery, characterized his chances of a late-season return as "very slim."

"I won't be able to do anything really that's going to help benefit the team," Lynn said. "We're treating it as rehab and kind of like a mini Spring Training so that when I go into Spring Training next year, I ...    [ More ]
