”I pitched well, I got a hit and we won the ballgame. It doesn’t get much better than that,” said excited new St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Tyler Lyons on Wednesday night. In his first Major League game, the 24-year-old left-hander limited the San Diego Padres to one run and four hits over seven innings. Lyons also contributed a single in the top of the sixth inning as part of St. Louis’ 14-hit attack.

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...

Cardinals On The Cover Of Sports Illustrated

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...

Where would Cardinals be without their rookie pitchers?

Beset by injuries, the Cardinals have had to turn to the farm system early and often this year. Normally, when you're dealing with young and unproven players, the results are at best mixed.  However, so far the Cardinals rookies have come through.  The latest example being Tyler Lyons, who started for the Cardinals last night and hurled 7 innings while allowing only 1 run...

He pitched two innings before being pulled from the start...

St. Louis Cardinals: Jake Westbrook suffers setback

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.

Cardinals' David Freese sits for third-straight game

If injuries are any indication of a team's ability to win, the St. Louis Cardinals should be in the basement of the National League Central.  Instead, they are banging out the best record in baseball with four starting pitchers on the DL and more injuries continuing to pile up.  David Freese, one of the main pieces of the team's offense sat out last night for the third...

Adam Wainwright’s Return to the Role of Overall Ace

Adam Wainwright is back to "ace" form. (Credit) Obtaining an overall ace in the Major Leagues is not an easy task. Although the majority of teams have an ace of their staff, an overall ace (something I came up with approximately two seconds ago) is a pitcher that would be an ace on over half of the teams in the MLB. That does not sound like much, but with an overall ace...

Doug Gottlieb: Cardinals Fan

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.  ...
