Cards ride grand slam over Scherzer, Nats
Getty
(MLB.com) Max Scherzer's one bad inning proved costly on Friday night as the Cardinals defeated the Nationals, 6-2, at Nationals Park.

Despite a pair of walks, Scherzer was able to get out of the first two innings unscathed, but the next inning proved to be a disaster, as the Cardinals scored five runs. With one out, Scherzer's counterpart, Jaime Garcia, singled to right field. After Greg Garcia walked and Aledmys Diaz singled, the bases were loaded when Matt Holliday walked to score Garcia. Stephen Piscotty followed with a grand slam over the left field wall.

Garcia ended up pitching seven solid innings, allowed two runs on seven hits and winning his fourth game of the season. He did allow a solo homer to Danny Espinosa in the fifth inning, and Bryce Harper scored the second run on a double-play ball hit by Ryan Zimmerman in the sixth.

The Cardinals would add to their lead in the eighth inning, when Greg Garcia hit his second home run of the season off ...     [ More ]

Adams sits Friday, but stiff back is improving
AP
(MLB.com) First baseman Matt Adams said he felt good Friday, a day after leaving the Cardinals' 2-1 loss to the Nationals in the series opener at Nationals Park with mid-back stiffness. Adams was not in the Cards' starting lineup, but he expected to be available to pinch-hit.

"I woke up and the stiffness felt a lot better," Adams said. "I came in, tested it a little bit, did a full-body workout and went in the cage a little bit."

Adams injured his back on a swing during his ...    [ More ]
Late homers deal Cards, Leake tough loss
(MLB.com) Danny Espinosa's solo home run, which followed Bryce Harper's monster tying blast an inning earlier, lifted the Nationals over the Cardinals, 2-1, at Nationals Park in Thursday night's four-game series opener. The Nats are a full game ahead of the Mets in the National League East race.

Cardinals starter Mike Leake cruised through five scoreless innings before allowing Harper's solo shot in the sixth and Espinosa's decisive blast in the seventh.

Cards expect Carpenter back by Saturday
AP
(STLToday.com) WASHINGTON o Although he has at least three days at his disposal, Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter is expected back in time to start Saturday's game here against the Nationals.

Carpenter and his wife, Mackenzie, welcomed daughter Kinsley Carpenter on Wednesday while the Cardinals were playing the Cubs.

After discussions with team officials, Carpenter has let the team know he plans to return after spending two days with his wife and new ...    [ More ]
Cards' comeback comes up just short in finale
AP
(MLB.com) The intrigue wasn't over, as many may have expected, when the Cubs handed their starter, Jake Arrieta, a five-run second-inning lead. But despite their ambitious comeback against a pitcher who hasn't lost in 10 months, the Cardinals fell short of flipping the results on Wednesday afternoon. Instead, Chicago escaped Busch Stadium with a 9-8 victory and second series win over its rivals this season.

For the second straight game, the Cubs deflated the home crowd quickly with a six-run ...    [ More ]
Peralta making progress on rehab assignment
(MLB.com) Jhonny Peralta's tenure with the Class A Peoria Chiefs will end on Wednesday, but his rehab assignment is poised to continue.

General manager John Mozeliak confirmed that Peralta will be transferred to the organization's Double-A affiliate in Springfield (Mo.), where he will debut on Friday. By then, Peralta will have played in five games with Peoria. Through Tuesday's game, he was 3-for-10 with a double while splitting time between shortstop and third base.

Carpenter away from Cards for birth of child
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals were without third baseman Matt Carpenter for Wednesday's series finale against the Cubs and were preparing for the possibility that he'll miss part of the team's upcoming series in Washington because of the birth of his first child.

Carpenter's wife, Mackenzie, went into labor early on Wednesday, prompting Carpenter to send a pre-dawn text message to manager Mike Matheny to let him know he would be spending the day at a St. Louis-area hospital. Carpenter had been ...    [ More ]
Cards' bats can't overcome Wacha's woes
AP
(MLB.com) Any chance the Cardinals had of rolling over momentum from their series-opening walk-off win evaporated before they could send their first batter to the plate on Tuesday, as the Cubs opened the night with a six-run first and then cruised to a 12-3 victory that evened the three-game set at Busch Stadium.

The Cubs sent 10 batters to the plate in the opening frame against Cardinals starter Michael Wacha, who walked home a run and allowed five hits in the 36-pitch inning. He was so shaky ...    [ More ]
Eventful 9th swings game Cardinals' way
AP
(MLB.com) Randal Grichuk spent several minutes before Monday's series opener against the Cubs trying to convince a horde of media members that the tightness in his back that forced him out of a game late last week had been appropriately addressed. Whomever his words might not have convinced would see for themselves a few hours later that all is, indeed, just fine.

With the first walk-off blast of his life, Grichuk left the Cardinals celebrating a 4-3 victory to open a key May series at Busch ...    [ More ]

Moss homers but Garcia rocked in loss
(MLB.com) The D-backs ambushed opposing starter Jaime Garcia to seal a series win on Sunday, jumping out to an early lead that Zack Greinke never allowed the Cardinals to threaten en route to a 7-2 victory at Busch Stadium.

Garcia faced 16 batters and allowed 10 of them to tally a hit before being pulled after 2 1/3 innings, his shortest start in almost four years. Yasmany Tomas and Brandon Drury had RBI singles off the lefty in the first, while a Paul Goldschmidt RBI single helped add to ...    [ More ]
Cardinals intend to get Rosenthal more work
AP
(MLB.com) Concerned that sporadic work is the culprit behind Trevor Rosenthal's recent command troubles, manager Mike Matheny said he will be more intentional in getting his closer into games even if the appearances come in non-save spots.

That was the impetus behind pitching Rosenthal with a six-run lead during the ninth inning of Saturday's 6-2 win over the D-backs. But instead of getting Rosenthal a feel-good outing, Matheny watched the right-hander labor through a 34-pitch inning in which ...    [ More ]
