  1. Do the Red Sox or the Cardinals have the World Series pitching edge?

    Oct 21, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Adam Wainwright

    This postseason has been dominated by pitching, so who has the arms advantage in the World Series? During the regular season the Red Sox ranked sixth among AL teams in runs allowed and the Cardinals ranked fifth among NL teams in runs allowed, but overall totals can be misleading when it comes to evaluating the…

  2. Cardinals’ forgotten man Shelby Miller trying stay ready

    Oct 21, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v St. Louis Cardinals

    Despite an excellent rookie season in which he won 15 games with a 3.06 ERA and 169 strikeouts in 173 innings Shelby Miller has been a forgotten man for the Cardinals in the playoffs, as St. Louis shifted him to the bullpen in favor of Joe Kelly/Lance Lynn and has used him just once as…

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals

    The Cardinals and Red Sox will open up the 2013 World Series in Boston on Wednesday night, a rematch of the 2004 World Series ultimately taken by the Sox in four games. The two teams are, both by their regular season records and various statistical measures, the best teams from their respective leagues. Let’s go…

    St. Louis is one win away from the World Series. Matt Holliday slugged a two-run bomb in the top of the third inning and Shane Robinson smacked a pinch-hit solo shot in the top of the seventh inning as the Cardinals defeated the Dodgers 4-2 in Game 4 of the NLCS on Tuesday evening in…

  5. Dodgers put up two runs in dramatic fourth inning

    We had some drama in the bottom of the fourth inning of this NLCS Game 4 at Dodger Stadium. Cardinals starter Lance Lynn served up a leadoff double to Adrian Gonzalez, a walk to Andre Ethier and then sent what appeared to be a brushback pitch in the direction of Yasiel Puig‘s head. Puig, who…

  6. Cardinals jump out to 3-0 lead in Game 4 of NLCS

    matt holliday getty

    St. Louis has a big early lead in NLCS Game 4. Cardinals shortstop Daniel Descalso opened the top of the third inning with a leadoff single and scored one batter later on a Matt Carpenter RBI single. Carlos Beltran then grounded out but the next man up — Matt Holliday — slugged a no-doubter high…

  8. Ricky Nolasco scheduled to start Game 4 of NLCS…for now

    Oct 14, 2013, 11:53 PM EDT

    Ricky Nolasco Getty

    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated earlier today that he could skip Ricky Nolasco and go with Zack Greinke on short rest if his team was facing elimination tomorrow, but it sounds like the idea isn’t dead even after Monday’s Game 3 victory over the Cardinals. According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, Nolasco is currently…

  9. Dodgers shut out Cardinals in Game 3, now trail 2-1 in NLCS

    The Cardinals took the first two games of the NLCS and were sitting pretty with their ace Adam Wainwright on the hill tonight, but the Dodgers are suddenly making things interesting. Behind an excellent outing from Hyun-Jin Ryu and long-awaited contributions from some key bats in the lineup, the Dodgers topped the Cardinals 3-0 tonight…

  10. Cardinals name Lance Lynn as Game 4 starter

    Oct 12, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn Getty

    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny announced this morning that right-hander Lance Lynn will start Game 4 of the NLCS against the Dodgers, reports Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. Lynn was the winning pitcher in Game 1 last night after he tossed two innings of scoreless relief. Shelby Miller was the other candidate to start…

  11. Post-season legend Carlos Beltran helps the Cardinals walk off victorious in the 13th

    Oct 12, 2013, 1:38 AM EDT

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals - Game One

    In a battle of squandered opportunities, the Cardinals squandered one fewer. Between the fourth and the twelfth innings, the Cardinals and Dodgers traded zeroes — one part effective pitching, one part curious managerial decisions, one part offensive futility. Beltran was the heart and soul of the Cardinals tonight. His two-run double in the third inning…

  12. Adam Wainwright will need to come up huge again in NLCS

    Division Series - Pittsburgh Pirates v St Louis Cardinals - Game Five

    While they do have the advantage of staying home in St. Louis, the Cardinals won’t have long to rest following their NLDS victory on Wednesday night. The Dodgers are coming to town on Friday, and they’re bringing their aces. The Cardinals’ rotation is in flux after their five-game series, but the Dodgers face no such…

  13. Pirates lead the Cardinals 5-1 after fifth, Lance Lynn already knocked out of the game

    Oct 4, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v St Louis Cardinals - Game Two

    NLDS Game 2 between the Pirates and the Cardinals is, as I write this, in the top of the fifth inning. And the story today is very different than it was yesterday. Pittsburgh leads 5-1 at the moment, and Pirates fans can thank Gerrit Cole for much of that margin.  Cole is dealing, having sailed…

  15. Cardinals leave Shelby Miller out of NLDS rotation

    Oct 4, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cardinals rookie Shelby Miller was one of the best starters in the National League this season, posting a 3.06 ERA in 31 starts while striking out 169 batters in 173 innings and holding opponents to a .234 batting average. And yet the Cardinals just announced that he’ll spend the entire NLDS in the bullpen, with…

  16. Cardinals cruise to Game 1 victory over Pirates in NLDS

    Adam Wainwright Getty

    Adam Wainwright lived up to his billing as an ace while A.J. Burnett imploded as the Cardinals cruised to a 9-1 blowout win over the Pirates in Game 1 of the NLDS on Thursday at Busch Stadium. This game got out of hand rather quickly, as Burnett gave up seven runs in the third inning…

  18. Will 22-year-old right-hander Michael Wacha crack the Cardinals’ postseason rotation?

    Sep 25, 2013, 12:31 AM EDT

    wacha getty

    Beyond ace Adam Wainwright, there isn’t much certainty about which starters the Cardinals will choose to use this postseason. Michael Wacha might have provided some on Tuesday night. Wacha, a 22-year-old first-round pick in 2012, came one out from no-hitting a good Nationals lineup in front of a packed house at Busch Stadium, using a…

    Red Sox 7, Rays 3: Mike Carp with a tenth inning grand slam. Good job extending your lead, Boston! Good job letting the Yankees pull to within one game of the wild card, Rays! Apropos of nothing, I’d give a lot to hear what Red Sox fans who love this beards thing had to say…

  20. Reds make it three out of four, defeat Cardinals 6-2

    Sep 5, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Todd Frazier

    If they hadn’t gotten so bunt happy on Wednesday, the Reds might have made it a clean sweep. As is, they should be pretty pleased to have taken three out of four from the visiting Cardinals with their 6-2 win on Thursday. Todd Frazier hit two of the Reds’ four homers in support of Tony…

  21. Pirates defeat Cardinals, will enter September in first place for first time since 1992

    Russell Martin, Garrett Jones, Marlon Byrd

    Tied with the Cardinals at 78 wins and 56 losses, the Pirates defeated their NL Central rival tonight by a score of 7-1 to move into sole possession of first place. They will enter September in first place for the first time since 1992, the last year the Pirates made the post-season. (It was also…

    Nationals 9, Pirates 7: This could have been an awful, awful defeat, what with the Nats bullpen once again pooping all over itself. At least I’m assuming it would have been a defeat. The game was tied entering the bottom of the ninth. Thanks to Bryce Harper‘s walkoff homer, however, we don’t know how extras…

    Orioles' Jones watches his two-run home run off of Yankees closing pitcher Rivera during the ninth inning of their MLB American League baseball game at Yankee Stadium in New York

    Orioles 2, Yankees 1: Even Superman gets beat up once in a while. Adam Jones handed Mariano Rivera his second blown save of the year and the first blown save in Yankee Stadium in a dog’s age when he smacked a two-run homer in the ninth. Speaking of Superman, I finally got around to seeing…

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    Mets 4, Braves 3: Good news: two solo homers for David Wright and five scoreless innings from the bullpen. Bad news: The reason the pen was needed for five innings is that Jon Neise had to leave the game with shoulder problems. Braves news: ugh, you guys have looked positively crappy of late. Tigers 4,…

    Exactly 11 weeks into the 2013 regular season, the Cardinals are the best team in the major leagues. St. Louis was at it again Saturday evening in Miami, surviving a shaky Lance Lynn start with a big night of offense to beat the Marlins 13-7 at their own place. Carlos Beltran slugged his 15th and…
