Moss, Peralta jacks unable to lift Cardinals
AP
(MLB.com) The Cardinals' home skid extended to seven on Thursday night, as the Royals retained I-70 Series bragging rights with a 4-2 victory at Busch Stadium. The win was punctuated by another big night from Kendrys Morales, who finished 12-for-16 in the four games.

Morales logged a pair of doubles the second of which pushed the Royals ahead, 3-1, in the sixth and then added breathing room again with a 456-foot, according to Statcast(TM), solo homer off reliever Tyler Lyons in the eighth. The homer, Morales' 11th, was deflating for the Cardinals, who had previously twice pulled to within one run of Kansas City's lead.

The Royals took advantage of some shoddy St. Louis defense early to build a lead against starter Mike Leake. The right-hander finished seven innings, but watched his record drop to 5-6 with the lack of run support.

The Cardinals tallied two hits solo homers from Brandon Moss and Jhonny Peralta but were also unable to take advantage of ...     [ More ]

Matheny ejected after overturned double play
(MLB.com) Cardinals manager Mike Matheny was ejected in the sixth inning of Thursday night's game after taking exception to a delayed replay request by the Royals. It was his first ejection since Sept. 18, 2015, and the first of a Cardinals player/coach this season.

Believing the sixth inning had ended with a double play, the Cards emptied the field and began to ready for the bottom half of the frame. Home-plate umpire and crew chief Mike Everitt did not stop anyone, either, as umpires ...    [ More ]

Piscotty, Diaz still nursing bumps, bruises
(MLB.com) Ailing Cardinals position players Stephen Piscotty and Aledmys Diaz remained out of the lineup on Thursday, but manager Mike Matheny noted that both would be available bench players for the team's I-70 Series finale against the Royals.

Piscotty arrived at the ballpark more than five hours before the scheduled first pitch to resume treatment on his bruised left ankle. The swelling had reduced, Piscotty said, since Wednesday evening, which is when he struck the side of his ankle with a ...    [ More ]
Cards' late rallies aren't enough to top Royals
AP

The extra-innings victory, Kansas City's fourth of the season, helped the Royals regain the edge in the I-70 Series, which shifted to Busch Stadium after the clubs split a pair of games on the other side of the state.

Escobar's go-ahead double caromed off the glove of a ...    [ More ]

Diaz will avoid DL after taking foul ball to face
(MLB.com) Though he has the look of someone who just ducked out of a boxing ring, Cardinals rookie shortstop Aledmys Diaz will avoid the disabled list and should be back in the lineup as soon as the swelling around his right eye subsides.

Diaz said he felt fortunate the diagnosis wasn't worse after hitting a ball off home plate that then ricocheted to his face in Monday night's game against the Royals. The ball made its impact between his right eye and eyebrow, but X-rays performed at a local ...    [ More ]
