    After going down 6-0 to the Cardinals in the top of the fourth, the Giants came right back and knocked Lance Lynn out of the game in the bottom of the inning, closing to within 6-4. However, they’ve been unable to make up any additional ground the last two innings, leaving them with a two-run…

    If the Giants are going to prevail tonight, they’ll have to duplicate the Cardinals’ comeback from Game 5 of the NLDS. David Freese and Carlos Beltran homered Sunday as the Cardinals built a 6-0 lead over the Giants in the NLCS opener. Freese’s two-run homer was the only scoring through three innings, but the Cardinals…

    We’re going to have yet another Game 5 in this already thrilling postseason. Jayson Werth clubbed a walkoff solo homer to lead off the bottom of the ninth inning this evening to power the Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the Cardinals in Game 4 of the NLDS. It forces a fifth and deciding game…

    UPDATE: According to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Garcia will be removed from the NLDS roster due to his shoulder injury. The Cardinals can replace Garcia on the roster, but this makes him ineligible to pitch if the club advances to the NLCS. Of course, depending upon the severity of the injury, it’s…

  8. Mike Matheny’s quick hook pays off as Cardinals even NLDS with Nationals

    UPDATE: Well, this adds a new wrinkle to Matheny’s decision. According to Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Jaime Garcia was pulled from the game because he aggravated a previous shoulder injury. He has been sent for an MRI. 8:13 PM: After being outmaneuvered by Davey Johnson in the Cardinals’ Game 1 loss to…

    Daniel Descalso Getty

    The Cardinals had all sorts of opportunities in Game 1 of the NLDS against the Nationals yesterday, but they collected just three hits and went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position. They aren’t wasting those chances today. The Cardinals got to Jordan Zimmermann early and currently lead the Nationals 7-1 through four innings in St.…

    David Ross gave the Braves an early 2-0 lead with a two-run homer, but the Cardinals have scored four unanswered to go up 4-2 as we go into the top of the seventh. Chipper Jones committed a throwing error in the top of the fourth inning which opened the door for the Cardinals to score…

  13. Jake Westbrook suffers setback with oblique injury

    Jake Westbrook

    One day after Chris Carpenter returned from supposed “season-ending” surgery to rejoin their rotation the Cardinals look likely to lose Jake Westbrook for at least the remainder of the regular season. Westbrook hasn’t pitched since September 8 because of an oblique injury and had to cut short today’s bullpen due to pain. Afterward he told…

    Braves 3, Marlins 0:  Kris Medlen continues his astounding second half, shutting out the Marlins for eight innings. The Braves have won his last 21 starts, which is the most any team has won any one pitcher’s starts since the Yankees and Whitey Ford from 1950-53. Is there any doubt who will be starting the…

  15. I’m blaming this one on Mike Matheny

    Mike Matheny

    The Cardinals were up 4-3 on the Dodgers with right-handed starter Joe Kelly weakening in the bottom the fifth inning tonight. With a man on first and the left-handed-hitting Andre Ethier on deck, I think it had already been decided that he was facing his last batter when Shane Victorino flied out to left to…

    Shane Robinson

    In a lineup with Matt Holliday, Carlos Beltran and Yadier Molina, it’s Allen Craig who has been chosen to hit cleanup of late. He showed why yet again Thursday, singling home the go-ahead run in the seventh as the Cardinals took the opener of a four-game series against the Dodgers 2-1. Both the Cardinals and…

  17. Chris Carpenter nearing return from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome

    AP Chris Carpenter

    When Chris Carpenter underwent surgery in mid-July to alleviate symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome, it was assumed that he would miss the rest of the season. However, it’s now realistic that he could play a critical role for the Cardinals down the stretch. Carpenter threw around 70 pitches in a simulated game this afternoon in…

    The badly-slumping Cardinals have dropped three straight games and five of their last eight. And now they’ve also lost a member of their starting rotation for a yet-to-be-determined amount of time. According to MLB.com’s Jenifer Langosch, right-hander Jake Westbrook suffered a strained right oblique during his start Saturday night against the Brewers. He has been…

    If you missed the end of this one, don’t feel bad. This was one for the die-hards.

  20. Chris Carpenter hasn’t ruled out pitching this season

    chris carpenter ap

    Chris Carpenter underwent season-ending surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome in July and at the time the big question was whether he’d be ready to contribute to the Cardinals next season. Now it turns out the surgery may not have been “season-ending” after all, because Carpenter has been throwing bullpen sessions recently in attempt to gauge…

  21. Lance Lynn not happy about demotion to Cardinals bullpen

    Aug 28, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn

    It’s not often that a starting pitcher with a 13-5 record and 3.89 ERA gets dumped from the rotation and demoted to the bullpen less than two months after making the All-Star team, but that’s exactly what happened to Lance Lynn. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny decided to pull Lynn from the rotation in favor of…

    Jaime Garcia can finally spot the finish line. The 26-year-old left-hander made his second minor league rehab start on Saturday evening at Double-A Springfield, surrendering just one run on two hits over 4 1/3 impressive innings. He struck out six and did not issue a walk while inducing six groundball outs. According to Kary Booher…

    Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman wipes sweat from his forehead during the first inning of the Orioles' MLB baseball game against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis

    Twins 19, Orioles 7: This was a multifaceted butt-whupping, but it got started with Chris Tillman’s butt. Which is a shame considering that five short months ago he was in the Best Shape of His Life. All of those runs for the Twins despite hitting only one homer. It was a Gashouse Gorillas-style conga line…

    Tonight’s 83rd Major League Baseball All-Star Game will officially open with Detroit’s Justin Verlander throwing to Colorado’s Carlos Gonzalez.
