Garcia solid in '15 debut, but Cards blanked by Mets
AP
(MLB.com) Jacob deGrom's early-season rough patch has officially come to an end.

deGrom's eight shutout innings led the Mets to a 5-0 win over the Cardinals at Citi Field on Thursday afternoon, giving the clubs a four-game series split and boosting the Mets to their fourth win in six games. Though St. Louis starter Jaime Garcia was also sharp in his first outing in 11 months, deGrom was better, striking out 11 Cardinals and holding them to one hit.

Lucas Duda homered twice and drove in four runs to back deGrom, who did the rest. After giving up a single to the second batter he faced, deGrom ended his day by retiring 23 consecutive batters. With a potential complete game looming, Mets manager Terry Collins replaced deGrom with a pinch-hitter after eight innings and 104 pitches.

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
deGrominant: Sharp from the start, deGrom struck out five of the first six batters he faced and 11 over his first seven innings. No one could touch him after ...     [ More ]

Sizzling Cards, Martinez shut out Mets
(MLB.com) The Cardinals' offense continued to sizzle for a second straight night, smacking 14 hits to back starter Carlos Martinez in a 9-0 thumping of the Mets on Wednesday.

Martinez was stellar, tossing 6 1/3 shutout innings while striking out five to earn his fourth win. St. Louis was catapulted by a six-run fourth inning, during which Jason Heyward and Matt Adams hit long home runs off Mets starter Bartolo Colon.

Colon struggled for the third straight start, allowing 11 hits and ...    [ More ]
Now healthy, Garcia ready to contribute
(MLB.com) Eleven months and a day will have passed between Jaime Garcia's final outing in 2014 and his first this season, which is why the simple act of taking the mound in Thursday's series finale against the Mets will mark a notable accomplishment for the lefty.

What the Cardinals need, however, is for him to prove he's able to stay on it.

"Just the fact that I'm here and able to go out there and be on a Major League mound, that's a lot for me," said Garcia, whose 2014 season ...    [ More ]
Choate reaches first base for the first time
AP
(MLB.com) Fifteen text messages were awaiting Randy Choate when he returned to the clubhouse following the Cardinals' 10-2 win over the Mets on Tuesday, including a screen shot of himself sent from his 10-year-old daughter.

Of all the images she's captured of dad, this was a new one.

With an eight-run lead and little interest in using another position player, manager Mike Matheny sent Choate to bat for himself in the eighth. Choate, whose last plate appearance came in 2004, scurried ...    [ More ]
Cards go on the offensive in rout of Mets
AP
(MLB.com) Strategizing against a lefty starting pitcher on Tuesday at Citi Field, the Cardinals opted to bench three of their best hitters all-left-handed on the same night.

They didn't seem to miss them.

The Cardinals exploded for 10 runs over the first six innings of their 10-2 win over the Mets, producing one of their best offensive outputs of the season while Matt Carpenter, Jason Heyward and Matt Adams lounged on the bench.

In place of the usual suspects, ...    [ More ]
Extra-inning victory vs. Mets isn't in the Cards
(MLB.com) It took them a few innings longer than Matt Harvey might have liked, but the Mets managed to win their third straight game 2-1 in 14 innings over the Cardinals on Monday night at Citi Field. Pinch-hitter John Mayberry Jr. hit a walk-off infield single in the 14th, salvaging victory for the Mets on a night when Harvey's eight shutout innings resulted in nothing more than a no-decision.

Sam Tuivailala, whom the Cardinals called up Sunday to serve as a temporary extra option in their ...    [ More ]
Lynn, Wong lead Cards to win over Tigers
AP
(MLB.com) Behind a tie-breaking, sixth-inning homer from Kolten Wong, the Cardinals nabbed a 2-1 win over the Tigers at Busch Stadium on Sunday night to avoid being swept for the first time this season.

The Tigers struck first in the matchup of defending division champs, with Miguel Cabrera driving in his fourth run of the series on a first-inning double. Cardinals starter Lance Lynn scattered only four singles throughout the rest of his 7 1/3-inning start, giving the Cardinals ample time to ...    [ More ]
Garcia set to return to Cards on Thursday
AP
(MLB.com) Pleased with how Jaime Garcia performed in a rehab start on Friday, the Cardinals intend to have the lefty make his season debut in the team's series finale against the Mets on Thursday. The start will be Garcia's first since June 20, 2014.

Hours before general manager John Mozeliak and manager Mike Matheny announced the team's rotation plans, the Cardinals hinted at what was to come by optioning starter Tyler Lyons to Triple-A and recalling right-handed reliever Sam Tuivailala.

Cards rely on long ball, fall to Tigers in extras
AP
(MLB.com) In a game powered by the long ball early, the Tigers used a two-out bloop single by shortstop Jose Iglesias in the 10th to secure a 4-3 victory over the Cardinals in front of a sellout crowd at Busch Stadium on Saturday. The hit off Cards reliever Matt Belisle ended a string of six scoreless innings from the St. Louis bullpen and followed a leadoff walk to J.D. Martinez and single from Yoenis Cespedes.

The two clubs had earlier combined to hit four homers, the first a milestone shot ...    [ More ]
Cardinals' bullpen folds in 10-4 loss to Tigers
AP
(STLToday.com) Carlos Martinez made a step forward on Friday night, but his teammates couldn't get him any runs and his bullpen collapsed as the Cardinals fell to the Tigers 10-4 at Busch Stadium.

Martinez, who had allowed seven runs in each of his previous two starts, allowed two runs in five-plus innings, striking out a career high eight. He came out in the sixth after allowing the first two hitters he faced singled as his pitch count hit 103.

Slumping Adams gets time off; Reynolds fills in
AP
(MLB.com) Mired in a 1-for-30 stretch that dates back to May 3, Matt Adams was out of the lineup on Friday and likely will be for multiple days as the Cardinals give the first baseman time to focus on his swing.

Though manager Mike Matheny wouldn't commit to Adams' status for Saturday, it sets up to be another ideal day to keep Adams on the bench, given that Detroit will send lefty David Price to the mound. Mark Reynolds, Adams' replacement at first base, is 8-for-31 with three homers in his ...    [ More ]
