Adam Wainwright got a nice, loud ovation from the large contingent of St. Louis Cardinals fans behind the third-base dugout as he walked off the mound with an eight-run lead with one out in the bottom of the eighth inning.
It was his first victory at Petco Park, yet it almost had the feel of being at home.
''That was an awesome, awesome Cardinal reaction today,'' Wainwright said after the Cardinals beat the San Diego Padres 10-2 Tuesday night. ''That was pretty special. It's not rare for our fans to show up, but it's rare for our fans to be louder than the home fans. When I walked off today it definitely felt like a home game.
''They're special people, St. Louis fans. We're spoiled rotten playing in front of them all the time.''
The fans also got to cheer Daniel Descalso's first career grand slam and his career-high five RBIs.
Wainwright (6-3) held San Diego to one run and four hits in 7 1-3 innings, struck out six and...

The Cardinals have lost Jamie Garcia for the season. They're in the process of losing Jake Westbrook for way longer than the '2 starts' that we were told. And Shelby Miller can't be trusted to work out of his own jams.
None of this was going on 2 weeks ago. So what the...?
Wait, what's that? Sports Illustrated sent someone to cover the Cardinals historically...
The Stl Cardinals have lost pitcher Jaime Garcia for the season because of a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The injury will require surgery and cost him the rest of 2013.
The lefty starter originally felt pain in his shoulder during a start in the 2012 National League Divisional Series against the Washington Nationals. He pitched two innings before being pulled from the start...
What a difference seven weeks has made. Out of spring training, the St. Louis Cardinals had a solid pitching staff that was exciting to watch. What fans couldn't have known at that time was how impressive of a performance they were about to put up. Arguably that performance peaked when Shelby Miller and Adam Wainwright posted back to back shutouts - with one hit and two hits...
He's a great doctor, but anytime his name is associated with a player's name, it's generally bad news. This time, that bad news is hanging around Jaime Garcia. The St. Louis Cardinals' veteran starter was just recently placed on the disabled list with a shoulder strain. Now, it seems that strain may be more serious as Garcia intends to see Dr. James Andrews...
After learning that Jaime Garcia was going to be out for the remainder of the season after he undergoes shoulder surgery later this week, the St. Louis Cardinals were hoping for some good news from their other starter who is on the disabled list, Jake Westbrook.
Westbrook, who is 2-1 with a 1.62 ERA in six starts this season, has been on the disabled list since May 9 with scar...

St. Louis Cardinals right-handed starting pitcher Jaime Garcia will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
The procedure has been recommended by Dr. James Andrews, as he confirmed the original diagnosis of a small tear in Garcia's labrum. Heyman adds that the right-hander is said to have what was described as a 30- to 40-percent tear...
After he was recently cleared to resume a throwing program, St. Louis Cardinals right-handed starting pitcher Jake Westbrook made 25 throws from 60 feet yesterday, according to Jenifer Langosch and Chad Thornburg of MLB.com.
Following the session, Westbrook said "it went well," adding that his elbow "feels a lot better." The veteran was placed on the disabled...
I had long found it interesting that the two individuals who had been considered the primary candidates for the vaunted title of St. Louis Cardinals “closer of the future” back in 2009 have been among Major League Baseball’s most prominent Twitter users – until now.
A trade to Cleveland took Chris Perez out of the Birds on the Bat and into an Indians uniform, but I continue...

Dr. James Andrews made the diagnosis and recommended the surgery he however won’t be performing it that will fall to the team doctors.

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The San Diego Padres have had to deal with some of the best pitchers in the NL lately, though they don't appear to be facing as tough of a challenge in their series finale against the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Padres will try for their fourth win in five games when Tyler Lyons makes his major league debut for the visiting Cardinals on Wednesday night.
Tylor Lyons punked the San Diego Padres last night to record his first major league win (and hit).
It was a performance to behold, but if you thought it was due to talent, luck or other forces unknown, you'd be wrong. It'd be because former ESPNer and current CBSer Doug Gottlieb was in the stands wearing enough Cardinals gear to make the Cardinal Cowboy blush.
We're past the quarter mark of this season. 25% of the way into the year, there are several players that are playing pretty well, and some that are playing...not so well. While there is still 3/4 of the season left, we thought it would be pretty cool to take a look at the teams and players that are at least flirting with historical achievements thusfar this year, and what the...
