Cardinals' offense scuffles as Rays get sweep
Getty
(MLB.com) It was only four days ago that the Cardinals became co-leaders in the National League Central and appeared poised for a statement homestand to open the second half.

They have since hit a snag.

The Rays finished off a two-game sweep of St. Louis with a 3-0 win at Busch Stadium on Wednesday night, leaving the Cardinals with a losing home stay and even with the Pirates in the division's second spot. A sellout crowd of 43,564 saw another strong start from Lance Lynn, but one that was wasted by another lackluster offensive performance.

"It was a really good start and a rough finish," manager Mike Matheny said. "The last two days, they just had our number."

Right-hander Alex Cobb stole the show, tossing seven scoreless innings and driving in the winning run with the first hit of his Major League career. He even shook off being hit by a pitch on his elbow in the fourth en route to striking out 10. His split-finger fastball was especially tricky for ...    [ More ]

Jay strikes out as ump loses track of count
AP
(MLB.com) In a perplexing seventh-inning sequence during Wednesday's 3-0 loss to the Rays, Jon Jay took both ball four and strike three in the same plate appearance.

The confusing sequence happened with two out and Rays starter Alex Cobb nearing the end of his night. The at-bat opened with Jay unhappy about a called first strike, though he eventually worked the count full. Along the way, however, the scoreboard tally omitted one of the balls. That meant that when Cobb threw a fourth pitch out ...    [ More ]
Matheny says Taveras will stay here
AP
(STLToday.com) Rookie outfielder Oscar Taveras, hitting .190 before Tuesday's game, sat for the fifth time in the last seven starts. Manager Mike Matheny said the Cardinals were trying "to win today. We're not here in the development business.

"There are times when you try to give guys exposure, but the overriding factor is you've got to do what we can to win. Along with that, you don't want a guy to just sit here where he could be getting some much-needed ...    [ More ]
Siegrist is back, ready to pitch again
AP
(STLToday.com) Lefthander Kevin Siegrist, having completed his rehabilitation option at Class AA Springfield, was in the Cardinals' clubhouse Tuesday night. He wasn't active, but he could be either tonight or almost certainly this weekend in Chicago.

Siegrist, who has missed two months with a left forearm strain and a subsequent nerve issue in his shoulder, passed what was supposed to be his final test by working into a second inning, throwing 27 pitches, in Springfield's game Monday night. Late ...    [ More ]
Wainwright off game, chased early in defeat
AP
(MLB.com) It was as atypical a start as there has been in some time for Adam Wainwright, who self-destructed in a fifth inning that cost the Cardinals their series opener against Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

En route to a 7-2 victory in front of 43,623 fans at Busch Stadium, the Rays chased Wainwright during a five-run fifth in which Tampa Bay tallied only two hits. Wainwright provided the rest of the assistance, committing a fielding error, walking three and hitting one in a start he was making on ...    [ More ]

Siegrist back from rehab, on verge of activation

(MLB.com) While the Cardinals won't make the final decision until Wednesday, general manager John Mozeliak said it's "a real possibility" that left-hander Kevin Siegrist will be activated from the 15-day disabled list prior to the Cardinals' series finale against the Rays.

Siegrist rejoined the Major League team on Tuesday, one day after he threw 27 pitches in a 1 1/3-inning rehab appearance for Double-A Springfield. That was Siegrist's fifth rehab outing and accomplished the final thing ...    [ More ]

Wacha targets September return after MRI
AP
(MLB.com) With approval from the medical staff after they read the results of Monday's MRI exam, Michael Wacha plans to increase his strength exercises over the next two weeks with the hope that he'll then be cleared to begin a throwing program.

If all goes as the Cardinals hope, Wacha will resume throwing during the first full week of August, which would then put him on schedule to return to the Cards' rotation in early September. Wacha, who last pitched on June 17, has been nursing a stress ...    [ More ]
Wacha improving, could begin throwing in two weeks
AP
(STLToday.com) Injured Cardinals righthander Michael Wacha still hasn't been cleared to throw. But general manager John Mozeliak said today that Wacha, who has a stress reaction in his right scapula, has healed to the point that he will "ramp up" his pre-throwing program beginning Tuesday.

The Cardinals hope that Wacha can begin throwing in two weeks.

Wacha underwent both an MRI and CT scan Monday and Mozeliak said the results were encouraging to ...    [ More ]

MLB trade rumors: Cardinals, Indians eyeing David Price?
(Sporting News) David Price is the biggest name on this year's trade market. The Rays ace can become a free agent after next season, and the small-market Rays know they don't have the money to ink him to a long-term deal. And while the Rays have been playing better of late, they're still several games below .500 and will need a big second half to get back into contention.

With that in mind, conventional wisdom holds that now is the ideal time to move Price for a package of top prospects. Here is the ...    [ More ]
Cards hit a Dodgers nerve
(STLToday.com) Despite Don Mattingly's arm waving and arguing, the Dodgers are happy home plate umpire Ed Hickox didn't eject Trevor Rosenthal after he hit Hanley Ramirez in the ninth inning Sunday.

"Thank God he didn't throw him out, because I came up and got a hit," said Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, whose ninth-inning single prevented a Cardinals sweep and led to a 4-3 Dodgers win. "Who knows if I would have gotten a hit against Freeman?"

But they are upset at what they call ...    [ More ]
