Found May 22, 2012 on Fox Sports Midwest:
ST. LOUIS Cardinals infielder Tyler Greene spent numerous hours in the batting cage the past few weeks, working on an adjustment to his swing that he thought would get his struggles turned around. And he felt much better at the plate, but the results just didn't add up. That is, until Monday. Greene went 3-for-4 and launched a game-winning two-out, two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to give the Cardinals a much needed 4-3 win over the San Diego Padres at Busch Stadium. "It's great," Greene said. "It's a great feeling to come through for the team like that and get a big win for us right there. I felt great up there. I'm just going to continue to work, continue to get better." There may not be a more debated player among fans on the Cardinals roster than Greene, who was a former first round draft pick by the club but has yet to show his full potential. Greene had three nearly identical seasons with the Cardinals as mostly a re...

On Tuesday morning, I joined Josh Houchins on WGEM ESPN 1440 Radio to talk about the many recent changes with the St. Louis Cardinals. Not surprisingly, Matt Adams was question number one.

Berkman has torn meniscus, prepares for worst

ST. LOUIS Despite an MRI Monday that revealed no structural damage to Lance Berkman's right ACL, the Cardinals first baseman fears he will wake up from surgery Friday to find out it was replaced. Monday's exam revealed a torn meniscus and cartilage damage in his right knee, which will likely be repaired Friday at The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado. But doctors will also...

Wainwright looks like old self in shutout win

ST. LOUIS The feeling Adam Wainwright had while on the mound as the Cardinals closed out the 2006 World Series was likely to be the best of his baseball career. That is, until Tuesday. Adding a positive chapter to his grueling recovery from Tommy John surgery, Wainwright tossed his first shutout since August 6, 2010, to lead the Cardinals to a 4-0 win at Busch Stadium. Wainwright...

Adams promoted as Berkman lands on DL

The Matt Adams era has begun. The highly touted prospect was called up from Triple-A Memphis Sunday when the club placed first baseman Lance Berkman on the disabled list with an injury to his right knee. Adams, who hit .340 with nine home runs, 10 doubles and 27 RBI in 37 games for Memphis, arrives with plenty of hype after speeding through the Cardinals farm system with some impressive...

Lance Berkman's Injury a Big Blow, But Cardinals Have Shown They Thrive in Face of Adversity

Been there, done that. As unfortunate as Lance Berkman's injury is, and as devastating a blow it is to the St. Louis lineup, the Cardinals have faced about as much adversity over the past 15 months as any team in Major League Baseball. Yet, they just keep winning. When pitcher Adam Wainwright went down prior to the start of last season, many were already writing off the Cards...

Cardinals 4, Padres 3

Jaime Garcia allowed two runs and struck out seven in seven-plus innings for the injury-riddled Cardinals, who held their half-game lead over Cincinnati...

Daily Notes - The Couple of Guys Under the Radar Edition

So, Adam Wainwright looked like the old Adam Wainwright last night, rattling off the complete game shutout, fanning 9, allowing only 4 hits, 1 walk. He has been mostly average so far this season, with glimpses of his old self, but last night was encouraging (understatement). Yes, this gem came against the Padres, but his next start is Sunday against the Phillies and they aren'...
