Reporter Julie Tristan is becoming known this across the country, and it’s not for a good reason. The host of KSDK’s “Show Me St. Louis!” did a feature last week on Cardinals third baseman David Freese riding the new Mr. Freeze ride at Six Flags St. Louis. For some reason, Tristan took the opportunity to shamelessly hit on the the ballplayer repeatedly.

ST. LOUIS Cardinals reliever Mitchell Boggs couldn't find his way onto the mound in a meaningful spot during their World Series run last year. Now he's one of the most valuable arms in the St. Louis bullpen.

The St. Louis Cardinals lost a huge part of their offense when Albert Pujols signed a 10-year, $240-million deal with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, but that also forced the team to build a more balanced lineup. Now every spot in the order consistently pushes across enough runs to put the Cardinals atop the NL Central as April comes to a close.

ST. LOUIS The Cardinals finished April with a 14-8 record and will be in first place when the calendar flips to May come Tuesday. But with that comes the sting of several losses similar to Sunday that kept them from having a potentially historic month.
The Cardinals lost 3-2 to the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday, missing on a chance to sweep the division champs by running into the final...
After their biggest stars left town this past offseason, the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers had plenty of doubters.
That'll happen when two of the best hitters in baseball now, and maybe ever are no longer in your lineup. And despite signing other power hitters to try filling those enormous gaps, both teams had consented there was no replacing an Albert Pujols or...

St. Louis Cardinals minor league first baseman Xavier Scruggs reports from Springfield, Missouri. His club is looking to break a losing skid.
Jaime Garcia failed to get a bunt down, forgot to tag up and gave up one fat pitch. The St. Louis Cardinals' hitters shouldered their share of the blame, too, in a game that ended with a botched double steal.
The Cardinals had 11 hits but were 2 for 14 with runners in scoring position and stranded 13 runners in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, costing them a three...
