Holliday's homer all Wainwright, Cards need
Getty
(MLB.com) Adam Wainwright bounced back from a shaky outing and led the Cardinals to a 1-0 win over the Cubs Sunday afternoon at Wrigley Field.

Wainwright, who allowed four earned runs in 4 2/3 innings on Tuesday, recorded his 17th quality start in 21 tries while giving the Cardinals' bullpen a much-needed breather.

The All-Star starter allowed just five hits, one for extra bases, with three walks and three strikeouts over seven innings, paving way for Trevor Rosenthal's MLB-leading 32nd save.

Matt Holliday provided the game's only run with his second homer of the series, his 10th of the year, over the right-center field wall in the first. It marked the fourth straight game the Cardinals scored in the opening frame.

The Cubs were on the verge of tying the game when Chris Coghlan reached third with two outs in the fifth, but Wainwright intentionally walked Ryan Sweeney then struck out pitcher Kyle Hendricks looking on a curveball. Chicago also had ...    [ More ]

Cardinals will keep chugging with four-man rotation

(STLToday.com) The purpose, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny insisted when asked this morning at Wrigley Field, was to give his ace Adam Wainwright rest, rest, rest.

There was no hidden plan to reverse-engineer his starts for division foes.

It just has worked out that way.

Wainwright will start this afternoon at Wrigley Field with a chance to take the three-game series from the rival Cubs. The team will then chug along with a four-man rotation for the coming week and bring back ...    [ More ]

(STLToday.com) Election to the Hall of Fame has served as the defining endorsement and final act for nearly everybody else who has made a career of baseball.

Former Cardinals manager La Russa will enter the Hall along with fellow managers Joe Torre (himself a former Cardinal) and Atlanta's Bobby Cox. From the recent players, the ...    [ More ]

Adams' four RBIs fuel Cards past Cubs

(MLB.com) The Cardinals squandered an early lead but bounced back with four runs in the seventh to snap their four-game skid in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

With the game tied at 2, Jon Jay led off the seventh with a single, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and narrowly swiped third a close enough call to induce a challenge from Cubs manager Rick Renteria. He slid under a tag at home on a fielder's choice to score the go-ahead run.

Pierzynski draws start in first game with Cardinals
AP
(STLToday.com) Veteran catcher A. J. Pierzynski is getting right to work in his new role behind the plate for the Cardinals as he'll start and bat sixth for the team this afternoon at Wrigley Field.

Pierzynski will catch Shelby Miller's return to the rotation.

Seeking a jolt from the position as Yadier Molina heals -- and perhaps a hot poker to a clubhouse that even considers itself underachieving -- the Cardinals signed Pierzynski to a deal Friday night. The deal was first reported here ...    [ More ]

(STLToday.com) The Cardinals' attempt to find a catcher who will click while Yadier Molina recovers from surgery continued Friday night and took them in an unexpected direction.

Yadier Molina Leaves Special Treat At Home Plate For Brother Jose ...

(Huffington Post) There was some brotherly love on display in between innings on Wednesday night at Busch Stadium. Just before Tampa Bay Rays catcher Jose Molina walked onto the field in the bottom of the first inning, his younger brother Yadier of the St. Louis Cardinals left him a little surprise at home plate.

Yadi, who is on the DL with a thumb injury, had Cardinals third base coach Jose Oquendo place some crackers on the dish as he made his way to his position. When Jose arrived at home plate, ...    [ More ]
Jay strikes out as ump loses track of count

(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 ]
