ST. LOUIS A crazy ending to the Cardinals-Royals game Friday night at Busch Stadium had players in the home clubhouse lobbying for additional instant replay to be added to the game.
The Cardinals lost 3-2 when Tyler Greene was called out at home plate to end the game after attempting to score the tying run on a pair of overthrows. But the call may not have been correct.
Michael Wacha, the St. Louis Cardinals' top pick in the draft, visited Busch Stadium after he signed his contract earlier Thursday.
The right-pitcher from Texas A&M was the No. 19 overall pick in the draft. Wacha was taken with the pick the Cardinals earned as compensation from the Angels for the free-agent departure of Albert Pujols over the winter.

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Matt Holliday homered and drove in five runs and Yadier Molina homered and drove in four, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 10-7 win over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday.
Holliday also doubled twice and singled. Molina broke a 7-all tie with a two-run, bases-loaded single off reliever Greg Holland in the seventh inning.

In listening to the post game press conference it is obvious something is off with this team. And Cardinals manager Mike Matheny sees it to. “You could see one team with a lot of confidence and the way they walk onto the field and the way they play the game, and I think you’re seeing a team on the other field that’s not so much,” he said following the Cardinals’ 6-1 loss...
This week, the St. Louis Cardinals began to show what they are capable of again, at least from a pitching standpoint. But they are still a long way from right.
The rotation of Adam Wainwright, Kyle Lohse, Lance Lynn, Jake Westbrook, and Joe Kelly collectively had an ERA just a shade over 2.00 this week, allowing nine earned runs over 40 innings. Lynn had the best start of his young...
