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

    Oct 12, 2013, 1:38 AM EST

    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…

  2. 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…

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

    Oct 4, 2013, 2:32 PM EST

    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…

  4. NLDS, Game 2: Pirates-Cardinals lineups

  5. Cardinals leave Shelby Miller out of NLDS rotation

    Oct 4, 2013, 11:51 AM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 3, 2013, 8:06 PM EST

    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…

    You can’t predict baseball, but you can at least lay out the parameters. So let’s take a look at what the Pirates and Cardinals have in store for us in the National League Division Series.

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

    Sep 25, 2013, 12:31 AM EST

    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…

    Mike Napoli

    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…

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

    Sep 5, 2013, 10:30 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 31, 2013, 10:35 PM EST

    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…

    Bryce Harper

    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,…

  15. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    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…

    Jun 4, 2013, 6:37 AM EST

    San Diego Padres v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Dodgers 2, Padres 1: Welcome to the bigs Yasiel Puig. In his first game Puig had two hits and then in the ninth he made a catch at the wall and then a strong throw to first to double off Chris Donorfia to end the game. This guy has the chance to be something special.…

  17. The Kansas City Royals Power Hour

    May 29, 2013, 12:01 PM EST

    St. Louis Cardinals v Kansas City Royals

    The Kansas City Royals did not hit a home run again on Tuesday — heck, they only managed two hits against the Cardinals, a hard double and soft single by Billy Butler — (update: they failed again on Wednesday) and so that means they have two home runs since May 15, both by 439-year-old Miguel…

    Mets 7, Marlins 6:  Jordany Valdespin hit a pinch-hit three run homer in the sixth to put the Mets up to stay, breaking their six game losing streak. But Terry Collins is on the hot seat! No he isn’t! Yes he is! She’s my daughter! [slap] My sister! [slap!] My daughter … Nationals 2, Braves 0: The Nats finally…

  19. Lance Lynn opens 5-0 for second straight season

    May 1, 2013, 6:10 PM EST

    Lance Lynn

    Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn beat the Reds on Wednesday to become the NL’s first five-game winner this year. In so doing, he started a second straight season 5-0. The 25-year-old Lynn is the fifth pitcher in 2000 to start back-to-back seasons 5-0. Pedro Martinez actually did it three straight years: Martinez: 5-0 in 2000, 6-0…

    Dustin Pedroia, Joel Peralta, Jose Lobaton

    Red Sox 3, Rays 2: Mike Napoli‘s RBI double in the ninth sent everyone home happy. The happiness would last less than an hour after game time, sadly. The Red Sox are now in Cleveland, which all things considered is probably a good thing. Padres 6, Dodgers 3: No one threw at anyone, so that’s…

    Robinson Cano, Yan Gomes

    Yankees 14, Indians 1: “Man, where are the Yankees going to get any offense with all of their big hitters on the DL?” no one is asking today like they asked so much last week. I guess nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got somethin to say, but nothin’ comes out when they move their…

    Now that Rafael Furcal is done for the season following Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, it’s not surprising to hear that the Cardinals are asking around about shortstops. But this report from MLB Network’s Peter Gammons indicates that they are also in the market for a starting pitcher. Cards are asking about a SS as…

  24. Cardinals’ lack of action could be their undoing

    Feb 21, 2013, 11:59 PM EST

    Mike Matheny, Chris Carpenter

    It’s hard to blame the Cardinals for staying the course. Even with free agents Kyle Lohse and Lance Berkman set to depart, St. Louis ended 2012 with a roster that already looked like a winner entering 2013: Rotation: Adam Wainwright, Chris Carpenter, Jaime Garcia, Lance Lynn, Jake Westbrook, Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly, Trevor Rosenthal Bullpen:…

  25. Lance Lynn is in The Best Shape of His Life

    Feb 8, 2013, 5:47 PM EST

    Lance Lynn

    Add another name to the list, from Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch: Cardinals righthander Lance Lynn, who was challenged and helped by the club to improve his fitness level during the offseason, arrived at the team’s complex Friday with a tightened haircut, no beard, and a significantly slimmed-down frame. Teammates joked they…
