Holliday's early jack isn't enough to slow KC
AP
(MLB.com) Left-hander Danny Duffy matched a career long with eight strong innings and red-hot Kendrys Morales had four hits and two RBIs as the Royals rallied for a 6-2 win over the Cardinals on Monday night at Kauffman Stadium.

The Royals remained five games back of the American League Central-leading Indians, who beat the Braves, 8-3, for their 10th straight win on Monday.

Duffy gave up six hits and two earned runs. He walked none and struck out eight, and his 68/101 strike ratio was nearly right at his season average of 68 percent since joining the rotation.

Cardinals right-hander Adam Wainwright came into the game with a 4-0 career mark at Kauffman Stadium with a 2.72 ERA. But the Royals peppered him for eight hits and six runs (four earned) in the first two innings, making him spend 61 pitches. He was gone after five innings and 102 pitches.

Rosenthal reflects on recent woes
(STLToday.com) KANSAS CITY o Trevor Rosenthal is back in Lee's Summit, very near Kauffman Stadium. He is staying at his parents' house for a couple of days, although things aren't quite the same.

For one, he's not sleeping in his old bed. "I've been out of the house for a while," said the 26-year-old Rosenthal, smiling.

He's also holding a different job description since the last couple of times he was in Kansas City for interleague play. He is not called ...    [ More ]
Cards face decision on Fryer
AP
(STLToday.com) SEATTLE o Veteran catcher Brayan Pena, the backup the Cardinals signed to alleviate Yadier Molina's workload this season, will join the team in Kansas City on Monday and force the team to decide whether he's ready for that role imagined.

Pena completed his rehab assignment Sunday at Class AA Springfield, exhausting the 20 days he had in the minors to recover his swing and stamina behind the plate. The Cardinals have until Tuesday to add him to the ...    [ More ]
Power surge leads Cardinals past Mariners
(MLB.com) Matt Carpenter and Tommy Pham each had two of the Cardinals' six home runs on Sunday as St. Louis avoided a series sweep at Safeco Field with an 11-6 win on Sunday afternoon.

Jedd Gyorko and Pham hit back-to-back homers off Mariners reliever Nick Vincent leading off the seventh inning as the Cardinals answered quickly after Seattle tied the game at 6 on Franklin Gutierrez's three-run blast off reliever Kevin Siegrist in the sixth.

Carpenter had two home runs and a triple, ...    [ More ]
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 ...    [ More ]
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.

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 ]
