After six starts, only one of which went smoothly, Justin Masterson will transition into the Cardinals' bullpen, where he'll be available as early as midweek.
A day after Michael Wacha threw 34 pitches in a Double-A rehab start, the Cardinals remained undecided on whether the right-hander's next appearance will come in the Triple-A playoffs or back with St. Louis.
A day after scaring the Cardinals when he landed hard on his head while going after a ball in the outfield, Kolten Wong delivered a game-tying pinch-hit home run with a stiff neck to help the Cardinals to a 5-4 win over the Pirates.
For the first time this season, the Cardinals stand alone atop the National League Central after constructing their third come-from-behind win in as many games, this one a 5-4 victory over the Pirates on Monday.
Though he has added plenty of unwanted tension along the way, Trevor Rosenthal joined select Cardinals company on Sunday when he nailed down the team's 9-6 win with his 40th save of this season.
John Lackey understands Spanish well enough to know what Starlin Castro was saying, but didn't grasp that the Cubs' shortstop was mad at himself, not at the Cardinals pitcher. Castro was upset after he flew out to center to end the fourth inning Sunday, and he yelled something in Spanish. Lackey took exception to what was said, and Cubs first-base coach Eric Hinske and Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina had to be peacemakers.
After landing on his head during an eighth-inning tumble, Kolten Wong underwent a series of tests that ruled out a possible concussion. Wong fell hard on his head after pursuing a popup to shallow right-center with the sun in his eyes.
After five months and 136 games, the Cards will enter September positioned precisely as hoped. They are again co-leaders in the National League Central. A little less than two hours after stunning the Cubs with a come-from-behind, 9-6 win, the Cardinals moved into a tie with the Brewers, who were blown out in San Francisco. Matt Holliday homered, drove in four runs and hit the game-winner.
After playing without a second backup infielder for six games last week, the Cardinals decided after Saturday's doubleheader that they did not want to be so exposed for two more days.
One day after manager Mike Matheny said there would not be enough time to get rehabbing righty Jason Motte out on an assignment before the Minor League season ended, the Cardinals announced that Motte had joined the club's Double-A affiliate to make an appearance on Sunday.
On the heels of a doubleheader and with roster expansion on the horizon, the Cardinals manipulated their 25-man roster in order to add a fresh arm to the bullpen -- Kevin Siegrist -- and a body to the bench -- Pete Kozma -- before additional reinforcements come later in the week.
The game ball rested on the ledge of Marco Gonzales' locker after the Cardinals' 13-2 victory over the Cubs. It was a key win for the Cardinals as they try to keep pace in the crowded division race, but it was also a milestone night for Gonzales, who earned his first Major League victory.
The Cardinals' Triple-A affiliate saw its Saturday game against New Orleans suspended due to rain, but that did not stop Memphis from securing one of four berths in the Pacific Coast League playoffs.
Having watched the Cubs bash their way to victories in the first two games of the series, the Cardinals joined in the home-run fun with two mighty swings from Matt Holliday in the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader to secure a 13-2 win.
Regardless of whether Tyler Lyons' terrific long relief stint on Saturday earns him consideration for a start during the next turn through the Cardinals' rotation, it at least positioned the Cardinals well for the nightcap of a doubleheader against the Cubs.
His hold on a rotation spot already tenuous, Justin Masterson did nothing to boost that job security on Saturday. Masterson could not last through the fifth, knocked out by an overpowering Cubs lineup that led Chicago to a 5-1 victory in Game 1 of a day-night doubleheader at Busch Stadium.

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.
