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 monopolized the spotlight.

Jorge Soler, three games into his Major League career, belted a pair of homers, the first a game-tying shot off Miller and the second a knockout punch off Neshek. Soler's second blast came just after Javier Baez, whose career spans 25 games, delivered the tiebreaking blast.

Neshek had been as close to automatic as any reliever in baseball this season. He had allowed five earned runs over his first 59 appearance before the Cubs nearly doubled that in ...     [ 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 ]
Molina starts rehab; Wacha is getting close
AP
(STLToday.com) While catcher Yadier Molina sped toward his return to the majors with the first start of his rehab assignment, his partner in recovery, Michael Wacha, gained clarity on his own route back to the Cardinals.

Wacha threw three simulated innings and 45 pitches Wednesday afternoon in Springfield, Mo., and if he recovers from the outing today he'll be scheduled to start Sunday for Class AA Springfield at Tulsa. The Cardinals confirmed the schedule after the righty disclosed it to reporters ...    [ More ]
Wacha: 'I was pretty happy' in session
AP
(Springfield News-Leader) Michael Wacha said he will pitch Sunday for the Springfield Cardinals in a road game, after the St. Louis Cardinals right-hander threw a 45-pitch session against two batters Wednesday at Hammons Field.

The Springfield club plays Sunday at 7:05 p.m. in Tulsa, Okla.

"I was pretty happy with how it went. I felt strong out there, felt good and I was throwing strikes, which is what I was trying to do," Wacha said. "I was trying to get that fastball command back to where I want ...    [ More ]
Cards go quietly against Bucs to end road swing
AP
(MLB.com) With the offense again quiet and their ace still working out some second-half kinks, the Cardinals ended a disappointing swing through Pennsylvania with Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Pirates, who now lurk 2 1/2 games behind St. Louis in a three-team National League Central race.

A chance to bury the hanging-around Bucs went untapped as the Cardinals dropped back-to-back games after stealing a come-from-behind win in the opening game of the series. The momentum gained during a strong ...    [ More ]
Bullpen falters as Cardinals fall in Pittsburgh
AP
(MLB.com) For the second straight night, the Cardinals' offense outlasted a dominant starter and then jumped on the bullpen to erase Pittsburgh's lead. But so did the Pirates, and with one more impactful swing.

After scraping to tie the game in the seventh, the Cardinals had their attempt at a second straight come-from-behind win foiled with a two-out blast by Ike Davis in the eighth. The homer sunk the Cardinals to a 5-2 loss in front of 25,521 on Tuesday at PNC Park.
