Cards trip up Reds in new skipper's 1st win
AP
(MLB.com) ST. LOUIS -- Despite spending the weekend surrendering leads and restructuring management, the Cardinals appeared rejuvenated on Sunday afternoon.

In his first game as interim manager, Mike Shildt fielded a club that fought through tough innings, made pitches in critical spots and chained together rallies in a 6-4 victory over the Reds in the series finale at Busch Stadium.



Cardinals players learned of the dismissal of manager Mike Matheny and hitting coaches John Mabry and Bill Mueller late Saturday night. There was a sense of shock in the clubhouse on Sunday morning, but also a realization: there was a game to be played, and the slate was clean.

Matheny takes high road after firing
(STLToday.com) Deposed Cardinals manager Mike Matheny took the high road Sunday. He threw no daggers at anyone in the organization for his abrupt dismissal after Saturday's come-from-ahead 8-2 loss here to Cincinnati.

"I've got nothing but gratitude," Matheny said, "and this goes way back.

(MLB.com) ST. LOUIS -- Having already had his actions as a 21-year-old Major Leaguer come under the microscope this week, Jordan Hicks left Busch Stadium with another lesson to pocket on Saturday.

There will be, as he was reminded, growing pains on the field, too.

AP
(deadspin) The St. Louis Cardinals are plainly, self-evidently enduring a period of persistent, chronic dunderheadedness. Nothing makes that more plain than the fact that they're publicly feuding with one of their own players, but that's not been the only sign: Tommy Pham, who broke out last season with the Cardinals, in his age-29 season, publicly called out the organization for jerking him around prior to the start of this season; last season stalwart catcher Yadier Molina had to clap back at manager ...    [ More ]

Cardinals mishandle a chance to win series, fall big to Giants, 13-8
(STLToday.com) SAN FRANCISCO o There were moments like Matt Carpenter's pinch-hit home run into the waters of McCovey Cove when the Cardinals had more than a pulse, they had a chance, something to cling to, something Sunday to actually celebrate about the game.

The rest was mostly a mess.

Jack Flaherty didn't see his way out of the third inning, shortstop Paul DeJong had a series of misplays at shortstop, and the Cardinals' bullpen ruptured early and often in a 13-8 loss at AT&T Park to ...    [ More ]
