St. Louis, pounding through another punishing stretch run in the National League Central, will play against Kyle Hendricks and Chicago on Friday for the first time in a month. Shelby Miller gets the call in the opener for the Cardinals.
Having gone through a Tuesday workout without any complications, Yadier Molina is scheduled to catch five innings as he begins a rehab assignment with Double-A Springfield on Wednesday. He could then be back in the Cardinals' lineup as early as Friday.
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.
Catcher Yadier Molina and right-hander Michael Wacha will relocate to Springfield, Mo., this week to continue their rehab work with St. Louis' Double-A affiliate.
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.
In a tied game in the top of the ninth inning, a call was confirmed after a crew chief review was initiated after Kolten Wong's ground-rule double. In the 10th, the Cardinals lost a replay challenge on Peter Bourjos' groundout.
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.
Even as injured Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina begins to swing again, manager Mike Matheny isn't looking ahead to Molina's return because in his mind, that's a bad approach.
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.
The St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday agreed to a four-year extension on their player development contract with their Class A affiliate, the Peoria Chiefs (Midwest League). The deal runs through the 2020 season.
As the Cardinals push for a division title, Trevor Rosenthal, Michael Wacha, Yadier Molina, Adam Wainwright and Oscar Taveras are five players particularly integral to St. Louis' pursuit of reaching the postseason for a fourth straight season:
Having started the season with little promise of playing time and work to do to move up the depth chart, Jon Jay has recently become the toughest out in the Cardinals' lineup.
Backed by seven scoreless innings from Lance Lynn and three RBIs from Jhonny Peralta, the Cardinals swept the Reds with a 7-3 victory on Wednesday night at Busch Stadium. St. Louis won for the seventh time in eight games and gained a game on the Brewers.
Pat Neshek, an avid baseball card and memorabilia collector, received a Babe Ruth autographed baseball from John Lackey on Wednesday as a reward for giving up his No. 41 when Lackey arrived at the Trade Deadline.
The Cardinals will use Thursday's off-day to manipulate their rotation and maximize their use of ace Adam Wainwright down the stretch.
Having etched his name into the franchise record books with his 17th home run as a shortstop on Tuesday night, Jhonny Peralta has his sights now set on the next milestone: 20.
Daniel Descalso, who doubled in the tying run for the second straight night on Tuesday, has quietly put together a strong stretch this month, providing the Cardinals with production similar to what he has late in the season the last few years.
Jon Jay was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the ninth inning on Tuesday to give the Cardinals their second walk-off win over the Reds in as many nights. With the 5-4 victory, they are 5-1 on the current homestand.
With a 438-foot shot into the second deck of the left-field stands on Tuesday night, Jhonny Peralta assumed sole possession as the Cardinals' single-season home run leader at the shortstop position.
Seeking a utility infielder for their bench, the Cardinals dipped into their Triple-A depth on Tuesday and plucked Greg Garcia for the second time this season.
A day after Cardinals manager Mike Matheny revealed that Mark Ellis was unavailable for the team's series opener against the Reds because of soreness, the veteran infielder was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.
