Cardinals club Bailey, claim another set vs. Reds
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals continued their recent dominance of the Reds on Saturday, this time spoiling Homer Bailey's season debut with a steady offensive attack that lifted them to a 5-2 win in front of a sellout Busch Stadium crowd. The victory assures the Cardinals of also claiming a series win, making this the 14th straight three-game series between these two clubs that has gone St. Louis' way.

Bailey, whose start to the season was delayed as he finished his recovery from torn flexor mass tendon surgery, likely would have preferred to draw another opponent in his first appearance since Aug. 7, 2014. Saturday's loss was his 11th against the Cardinals, who have scored at least four runs off him 11 times. This time, he was charged with five.

The Cardinals scored in four of Bailey's six innings, with all but one of the runs coming with two outs. Jason Heyward delivered the team's first home run at Busch Stadium in 2015, and Matt Carpenter provided some breathing room for the ...     [ More ]

Grichuk headed to DL with back strain
AP
(STLToday.com) Cardinals outfielder Randal Grichuk will go on the 15-day disabled list Sunday morning with a lower back strain, the second back injury he's had in three months as a result of weightlifting.

Grichuk felt his lower back "lock up, tighten up" on Friday afternoon.

He was doing squats and during the fourth rep felt the familiar soreness and seizing in his lower back. The same thing happened to him during spring training and he missed several days as a result. The Cardinals ...    [ More ]
Holliday exits after one inning with tight back
AP
(MLB.com) After doubling and scoring to give the Cardinals an early lead over the Reds on Saturday, Matt Holliday was pulled from the game due to what the Cardinals later announced was mid-back tightness.

Holliday extended the first inning with a two-out double off Reds starter Homer Bailey, against whom he is now 14-for-43 in his career. The outfielder then hustled home to score on Matt Adams' single to right and was seen clutching his side as he returned to the dugout.

Yadi's clutch double vs. Cueto sinks Reds
(MLB.com) Yadier Molina's three-run double off Reds ace Johnny Cueto in the seventh inning broke open a tie game and sent the Cardinals on their way to a 6-1 victory in Friday night's series opener at Busch Stadium.

Both Cueto and Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha allowed first-inning runs, and the score remained 1-1 until the seventh. Wacha stranded a runner at third to close the top half of that frame, but Cueto couldn't match the damage control. Following his leadoff single, Matt ...    [ More ]
Cards honor Red's legacy
AP
(MLB.com) Seventy years before Kris Bryant made his much-anticipated debut at Wrigley Field, the ballpark on Chicago's north side served as the setting for the debut of a future Hall of Famer.

Batting fourth for the visiting Cardinals, Red Schoendienst went 1-for-4 with a triple in a loss to the Cubs that day. What he remembers, though, was the error he committed in left field, just as he had committed an error in his first professional game for Class D Albany (Ga.) some three years earlier. ...    [ More ]
St. Louis to recognize Red's 70 years with Cardinals family

(MLB.com) Shortly after being named the 49th manager in franchise history, Mike Matheny found himself nestled in a duck blind alongside a man who had once filled those same shoes. Red Schoendienst impressed Matheny with his shot that day, but also served as a fountain of knowledge, sharing of his experiences as a Major League manager and offering his take on some of Matheny's new players.

And in many ways, he's never left Matheny's side.

Red, as he's affectionately known around ...    [ More ]
Lackey goes 7 in Cardinals' shutout of Brewers
(MLB.com) After five innings of watching starters Mike Fiers and John Lackey trade zeros on the scoreboard, the Cardinals, buoyed once again by Matt Carpenter and Matt Holliday, broke out with enough late offense to steal a 4-0 win and a series victory over the Brewers on Thursday afternoon.

Carpenter contributed a pair of doubles (his third and fourth of the season), both of which highlighted run-scoring innings. His leadoff double off of Fiers in the sixth put him in position to score on ...    [ More ]
Lynn reaches 50 wins in 99th start
AP
(MLB.com) Having previously become just the seventh Cardinals pitcher to win 40 games before making his 100th career appearance, Lance Lynn added the 50-win milestone to his resume on Wednesday night, in his 99th start.

Lynn downplayed the significance "It means I play for a pretty good team," he said after the Cardinals' 4-2 win over the Brewers. but it has been a quick ascent to No. 50 for a pitcher who didn't join the rotation full-time until 2012. Since then, his 49 wins are the ...    [ More ]
Matheny concerned with bullpen's early-season workload
AP
(MLB.com) As manager Mike Matheny made his congratulatory postgame rounds following the Cardinals' 4-2 win over the Brewers on Wednesday night, he intentionally gravitated toward the relief corps. On a night when Lance Lynn notched a milestone victory and the offense showcased its depth, Matheny had a message for the mostly unsung bunch out of the bullpen.

Their contributions, though appreciated, can't continue at this pace.

For the third time in four games, Matheny called on at ...    [ More ]
Cardinals edge Brewers for first home victory
(MLB.com) Behind two RBIs from Matt Holliday and three hits from Yadier Molina, the Cardinals displayed a steady attack against Brewers starting pitcher Wily Peralta to even the three-game series with a 4-2 victory on Wednesday. It was St. Louis' first win of the season at Busch Stadium.

Peralta, who had allowed eight earned runs in five starts against the Cards last season, allowed half that many over the first four frames of this five-inning start. He found himself in a two-run hole six ...    [ More ]
Cards' home opener spoiled by Brewers

(STLToday.com) The Cardinals never led on Monday in a rather disjointed defensive performance by both teams as the Milwaukee Brewers spoiled the St. Louis home opener with a 5-4 victory at Busch Stadium. ?

Adam Wainwright pitched seven innings, longest by a Cardinal this season, but allowed all five runs, only three of them earned, as a result of two errors by second baseman Kolten Wong.

Jhonny Peralta doubled in two runs for the Cardinals, with Matt Adams knocking in one with an infield ...    [ More ]
