Clutch September earns Waino NL Pitcher of the Month Award
Getty
(MLB.com) Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright helped lead the Cards back to the playoffs, and now he's got a bit of September hardware to show for it.

Wainwright went a perfect 5-0 in as many starts during the month to take home the National League Pitcher of the Month Award for the second time in his career (June 2013). He posted a 1.38 ERA in 39 innings of work, striking out 29 while walking just five. Opposing batters hit just .213 against Wainwright.

Wainwright earned his 20th win of the year in his season finale, holding the Cubs scoreless over seven innings on Sept. 22 at Wrigley Field. The win total matches a season high, and that outing came on the heels of a shutout on Sept. 17 against the Brewers.

In that game, Wainwright kept Milwaukee hitless into the sixth inning and struck out seven on the night. It was his third shutout of the season, the ninth of his career and was his second ...     [ More ]

Cardinals place second in MLB attendance rankings
Getty
(St. Louis Business Journal) With the 2014 regular season having wrapped up Sunday, the St. Louis Cardinals scored the second spot on Major League Baseball's attendance rankings with 3.54 million.

Coincidentally, the only team that brought in more fans was the Los Angeles Dodgers, the team the Cardinals will face in the National League Division Series that begins Friday in LA. The Dodgers attracted 3.78 million fans during the 2014 season.

This is the 11th consecutive season the Cardinals have ...    [ More ]

(STLToday.com)  One of the candidates expected to be discussed by Tony La Russa and his Arizona front office for the Diamondbacks' managerial opening is one La Russa has stumped for in the past.

With La Russa offering public bouquets as references, Cardinals third base coach Jose Oquendo has been interviewed for manager openings in Seattle, San Diego and with the New York Mets. He was one of the six candidates with Mike Matheny who interviewed for the Cardinals' manager position after La Russa ...    [ More ]
CARDS CLINCH: Shutout sends division champs into October
AP
(STLToday.com) The Cardinals ended their 2014 regular season the same way they began -- with a 1-0 shutout -- and though they took a different and hardly direct route to get from Game 1 to Game 162, they did end where they expected to all along.

October beckons.

The strangely prescient shutout score that opened the year in Cincinnati closed the regular season at Chase Field, as a parade of Cardinals starters carried the team to a 1-0 win against host Arizona. Pete Kozma's double and his ...    [ More ]

Cards derailed by HRs in bid to clinch NL Central
AP
(MLB.com) Hours before they were to take the field for Saturday's game against the D-backs, more than two dozen Cardinals players and personnel gathered to watch the end of the Pirates' game against the Reds. When Cincinnati pulled out the walk-off victory, the clubhouse briefly erupted. Then everyone went back to work, knowing that they had an opportunity to end their night with a champagne celebration if they could take care of their own business.

But instead, 161 games into the season, the ...    [ More ]
Cards' magic number is one with Reds' help

(MLB.com) With one Ramon Santiago swing some 1,800 miles away, the Cardinals used the Reds' assistance to set up a potential champagne celebration at Chase Field on Saturday.

Manager Mike Matheny may have promised not to distract himself by watching the Pirates' games this weekend, but his players and staff apparently couldn't resist Saturday afternoon. With the Reds and Pirates meeting in an afternoon game three time zones away, the game played on the television as Cardinals players trickled ...    [ More ]
Cards hold one-game Central lead with extras win
AP
(MLB.com) With a 7-6 win in 10 innings against the Diamondbacks on Friday night, the Cardinals held off the Pirates' pursuit of a first-place tie and dropped their magic number for an National League Central title down to two. However, in taking the opener of a three-game series at Chase Field, there emerged little clarity as to how the Cardinals will draw out their rotation if they do advance to the NL Division Series.

Wacha to go 'full gorilla' tonight
AP
(STLToday.com) It is quite common every March, Cardinals pitching coach Derek Lilliquist explained this past week, for the pitch that comes around the slowest for a starter to be his off-speed offering, even if it's the changeup that made the starter famous. The feel for an off-speed pitch can take time and some starters don't have it until their last start before the season begins.

That's where the Cardinals see Michael Wacha and his changeup.

Cards fall at Wrigley, but magic number reduced
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals' on-again, off-again offense hit another lull on Wednesday, costing them the chance to capitalize on a strong start from John Lackey and take a bigger step toward a National League Central title.

Lackey was outdueled by Jake Arrieta, who struck out 10 and drove in two runs on a triple in a 3-1 victory over St. Louis to cap Wrigley Field's 100th anniversary season.

The only positive to take away from the evening came some 700 miles away in Atlanta, where the ...    [ More ]
Jay takes personal leave, expected back Friday
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals were without Jon Jay for Wednesday's series finale against the Cubs at Wrigley Field after the center fielder needed to leave town in order to attend to a personal matter. Manager Mike Matheny said the club had some advanced warning about the departure and that Jay is expected back with the club before Friday's series opener in Arizona.

With Jay out of the mix, Peter Bourjos made his first start since Sept. 17. Oscar Taveras was the team's right fielder du jour.
