Cards go quietly against Bucs to end road swing
AP
(MLB.com) With the offense again quiet and their ace still working out some second-half kinks, the Cardinals ended a disappointing swing through Pennsylvania with Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Pirates, who now lurk 2 1/2 games behind St. Louis in a three-team National League Central race.

A chance to bury the hanging-around Bucs went untapped as the Cardinals dropped back-to-back games after stealing a come-from-behind win in the opening game of the series. The momentum gained during a strong homestand last week was sapped by a stalling offense this week, as St. Louis tallied six runs in this three-game series.

As a result, the Cardinals spoiled quality starts first from Lance Lynn, then from Adam Wainwright in front of 29,905 at PNC Park.

Wainwright labored through much of his six-inning start on Wednesday, but it was an overall step in the right direction for the right-hander, who has had a trying second half. He fell behind, 2-0, in a two-pitch span after ...     [ More ]

Wacha: 'I was pretty happy' in session
AP
(Springfield News-Leader) Michael Wacha said he will pitch Sunday for the Springfield Cardinals in a road game, after the St. Louis Cardinals right-hander threw a 45-pitch session against two batters Wednesday at Hammons Field.

The Springfield club plays Sunday at 7:05 p.m. in Tulsa, Okla.

"I was pretty happy with how it went. I felt strong out there, felt good and I was throwing strikes, which is what I was trying to do," Wacha said. "I was trying to get that fastball command back to where I want ...    [ More ]
Bullpen falters as Cardinals fall in Pittsburgh
AP
(MLB.com) For the second straight night, the Cardinals' offense outlasted a dominant starter and then jumped on the bullpen to erase Pittsburgh's lead. But so did the Pirates, and with one more impactful swing.

After scraping to tie the game in the seventh, the Cardinals had their attempt at a second straight come-from-behind win foiled with a two-out blast by Ike Davis in the eighth. The homer sunk the Cardinals to a 5-2 loss in front of 25,521 on Tuesday at PNC Park.

Molina intends to catch Wednesday at Class AA
AP
(STLToday.com) After a full workout Tuesday with the Cardinals' Class AA affiliate -- a workout and batting practice he did with general manager John Mozeliak looking on in Springfield, Mo. -- catcher Yadier Molina told reporters he intends to catch five or six innings Wednesday.

Molina will begin his rehab assignment that day and he has no interest in being the designated hitter.

Molina, who is coming back from surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right (throwing) thumb, has said ...    [ More ]
Cards recall Grichuk as Robinson lands on DL
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals recalled outfielder Randal Grichuk on Tuesday while placing Shane Robinson on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder injury.

The roster move was expected after Robinson suffered a subluxation (partial joint dislocation) of his shoulder while sliding into second base in the ninth inning of Monday's 3-2 win. Robinson said after the game that he would be heading back to St. Louis for further examination.

Grichuk gives the Cardinals a replacement ...    [ More ]

(MLB.com) The Cardinals escaped serious injury to Matt Adams when he face planted against a railing after making an attempt at a foul ball on Monday night, but the club did not escape a 3-2 win over the Pirates entirely unscathed.

In the final inning of the victory, Shane Robinson sustained a left shoulder injury that will require him to return to St. Louis for further examination on Tuesday and almost certainly will lead to the Cardinals making a roster move. The Cardinals believe that ...    [ More ]
Cardinals' three-run seventh takes down Pirates
AP
(MLB.com) Having lost a series in Philadelphia, the Cardinals relocated to the western part of the state on Monday night and subsequently regained some traction in a tight National League Central race.

Befuddled by starter Francisco Liriano for six innings, the Cardinals jumped on his replacement to stall the Pirates' climb up the division standings and propel their own with a 3-2 win in front of 24,352 at PNC Park. The win inches the Cardinals to within a game of the first-place Brewers, who ...    [ More ]
Molina, Wacha head to Springfield
AP
(STLToday.com) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina said he would do whatever he could to push the timetable on his return from thumb surgery, and he was open to wherever that rehab took him as long as it returned him swiftly.

He makes the first stride back to St. Louis on Tuesday by going to Springfield, Mo.

He could be back sooner than expected.

Molina will go through a full workout with the Cardinals' Class AA affiliate on Tuesday and manager Mike Matheny said the Gold Glove ...    [ More ]

Cards recall Lyons for depth, option Garcia
AP
(MLB.com) Having asked the bullpen to cover 13 innings in their weekend series against the Phillies, the Cardinals fortified their pitching staff on Monday by adding lefty Tyler Lyons prior to their series opener against Pittsburgh. St. Louis created space for Lyons on the 25-man roster by optioning infielder Greg Garcia to Double-A Springfield.

Lyons was slated to start for Triple-A Memphis on Monday, meaning he's plenty fresh to provide the Cardinals with innings out of the 'pen if an ...    [ More ]
Masterson, Cardinals can't get it going in finale
AP
(MLB.com) Less than 11 hours after the Cardinals beat the Phillies by a run in a 12-inning affair that lasted 4 hours and 53 minutes, manager Mike Matheny joked that everyone hadn't arrived yet on Sunday morning. Justifiably, Matheny told his team to take some extra time arriving at the ballpark for a 1:35 p.m. ET start at Citizens Bank Park.

Unfortunately, the Cardinals appeared to take the first three innings off as well, and in the end, it cost them a chance to win a series in Philadelphia ...    [ More ]
Wainwright calls outing 'pathetic,' but isn't hurt
AP
(STLToday.com) Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright was so out of sorts Friday night that he walked more batters (three) than he struck out (two) for the first time in his 26 starts this season.

Wainwright, who squandered a 3-0 lead in the first inning and lost 5-4 to Philadelphia, called that effort "pathetic."

But the small strikeout total on Friday has been emblematic of his last 10 starts in which he has fanned more than five hitters in a game only once. Concurrently, he has walked three or ...    [ More ]
