Molina's bunt leads to comeback Cardinals win
AP
(MLB.com) Yadier Molina got much more than he bargained for when he squared to sacrifice in the ninth inning of a tie game on Monday. That sacrifice, which was intended to move the potential go-ahead run to third, instead scored the winning run from first and jolted the Cardinals to a 6-5 victory over the Brewers at Miller Park.

With the come-from-behind win, the Cardinals held on to their lead for the National League's second Wild Card spot. They entered the night one-half game ahead of the Pirates.

The Cardinals, behind starter Carlos Martinez, looked in control early, but the Brewers nearly played spoiler in the series opener. With a four-run seventh that was highlighted by Orlando Arcia's solo homer and Jonathan Villar's game-tying RBI double, the Brewers took a 5-3 lead

That was quickly wiped away with a two-run blast by Randal Grichuk, who became the third Cardinals player to homer on the night. His game-tying shot in the eighth set the stage for an ...     [ More ]

(MLB.com) During his visit to a hand specialist on Monday, Aledmys Diaz received the go-ahead to increase his swing work and prepare for a rehab assignment that will get him ready to return to the Cardinals in September.

Manager Mike Matheny said the results of that visit as "all positive," adding Diaz will head to Florida on Tuesday to begin taking more swings. Diaz, who suffered a fractured right thumb when he was hit by an Andrew Cashner pitch on July 31, resumed ground-ball work last ...    [ More ]
Cards' bullpen can't hold late lead vs. A's
(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 ...    [ More ]
Reyes makes his first big-league start tonight for Cardinals
(STLToday.com) Like the arrival of Alex Taveras or Rick Ankiel, much-touted prospects who the fan base was crying for to get their chance, Alex Reyes makes his first major-league start on the hill on Saturday night for the Cardinals.

The news that was announced on Friday, that Mike Leake would miss his scheduled start and that Reyes would take his place, was confirmed on Saturday, with Reyes on the posted lineup for the Cardinals for their 6:15 p.m. game against ...    [ 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
(MLB.com) Though starter Jonathon Niese lasted only 21 pitches before an achy left knee forced him to the clubhouse, the Mets, behind a pair of early home runs and an exhaustive effort from the bullpen, nabbed a 7-4 victory over the Cardinals on Tuesday night at Busch Stadium. 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.

"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 ]
