St Louis Cards News

Justin Masterson will take the hill for the Cardinals in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Cubs, who will counter with Felix Doubront. Doubront will be making his debut for the North Siders.
The Cubs knocked around Pat Neshek for four runs in the eighth inning on their way to a 7-2 win over the Cardinals on Friday night at Busch Stadium. It was hardly the drawn-up ending to a day that started with the celebration of Yadier Molina's return.
Adam Wainwright will make his next scheduled start on Tuesday, but the Cardinals have not ruled out the possibility of building in extra rest for the right-hander if there are continued concerns of fatigue.
For the third time this week, Cardinals reliever Jason Motte took to the Busch Stadium bullpen mound to test his lower back, and he came away from Friday's session encouraged by his progress.
With the opportunity to add a 26th player to the active roster for Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs, the Cardinals have chosen to summon left-hander Marco Gonzales and have him make his fourth career start.
A season that included three demotions and a limited role when he was on the Major League roster has now been cut short for the Cardinals' Shane Robinson, who underwent season-ending surgery on his left shoulder on Thursday.
The Cardinals activated Yadier Molina from the disabled list on Friday night, 40 games after a thumb injury that required surgery. He caught all nine innings, went 0-for-3 and received a heartwarming standing ovation from the Busch Stadium crowd.
Minus Yadier Molina, the Cardinals have stayed right in the mix. Now they hope their stud catcher can put them over the top.
With general manager John Mozeliak among those in attendance to assess, rehabbing right-hander Michael Wacha threw three "innings" of live batting practice to a pair of Double-A hitters at Hammons Field in Springfield, Mo., on Wednesday.
Manager Mike Matheny emphasized that the Cardinals are in favor of aggressive baserunning, and it has helped score key runs during the series in Pittsburgh.
With the offense again quiet and Adam Wainwright still working out some second-half kinks, the Cardinals ended a disappointing swing through Pennsylvania with Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Pirates at PNC Park.
Lance Lynn was solid, but Seth Maness surrendered a go-ahead homer in the eighth as the Cardinals fell to the Pirates, 5-2, on Tuesday at PNC Park.
Four players listed on MLB.com's Top 20 Cardinals prospect list will represent the organization on the Peoria Javelinas Arizona Fall League club, which will begin play on Oct. 7.
The Cardinals recalled outfielder Randal Grichuk on Tuesday while placing Shane Robinson on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder injury.
In the final inning of Monday night's 3-2 victory over the Pirates, outfielder 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.
John Lackey fired seven solid innings after yielding an early homer, while Matt Holliday's single capped a three-run seventh that lifted the Cardinals to a 3-2 win over the Pirates on Monday night.
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.
Justin Masterson lasted just three innings, during which he allowed five runs in a 7-1 loss to the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. This loss and Milwaukee's 4-3 win over Pittsburgh pushed the Cards back to 1 1/2 games behind the NL Central-leading Brewers.
Shelby Miller is still young enough to be building for his future. The 23-year-old starter for the Cardinals has had some ups and downs over the past three big league seasons, but he's always kept an eye down the road and has always been open to experimenting with new pitches.
It wasn't pretty, but all that mattered is, in the end, the Cardinals' effort on Saturday night was effective. The Cardinals beat the Phillies, 6-5, in a 12-inning marathon on a damp night at Citizens Bank Park.
It was clear that Adam Wainwright was not happy on Friday night after a 5-4 loss to the Phillies in which he allowed all five runs. The veteran went six innings and settled in after a four-run third cost him the lead and eventually the game but he indicated that maybe, just maybe, he had figured something out over those last few innings.
Adam Wainwright labored in a decisive four-run third inning and was denied in his bid for a 16th win as the Cardinals dropped a 5-4 decision to the Phillies on Friday night.
