Phils scored four runs in the eighth inning as they beat the redbirds, 7-4, splitting the four games set with the Cardinals.
The Cardinals took a quick 1-0 lead in the top of the first as, with one man out, Matt Carpenter hits a solo home run, his second home run of the season. The Phils tied the game up at one-all in their half of the first as, with runners on the corners, and with nobody out, Chase Utley hits an RBI single, knocking in Jimmy Rollins, who had started the inning off with a triple, while sending John Mayberry, Jr., who had just walked, on to third base. The Phils then took the lead one batter later as Ryan Howard hits a sacrifice fly to center field, scoring Mayberry, giving the Phils a 2-1 lead. The Cardinals tied the game up at two-all in the top of the sixth as, with two men on, and with one man out, David Freese hits an RBI ground out, 5-3, knocking in Allen Craig, who had started the inning off with a single, then stopped at third base on Matt Adams’ single.

It appears that, with Mitchell Boggs' struggles continuing last night (0.1 IP, 4 ER) and the Cardinals not ready to turn the reigns over to rookie Trevor Rosenthal, who has struggled too, Edward Mujica is the Cards closer, as least for now.
But can he succeed in that role?
Mujica has been nothing short of spectacular in his short career with the Cardinals. Since being acquired...
No one would blame you if you forgot Joe Kelly was on the St. Louis Cardinals' roster. While most of the bullpen has been well exposed already in this season, Kelly hasn't seen the mound since April 15th when he pitched two scoreless frames against Pittsburgh. While Kelly hasn't been as sharp in 2013 as he was in 2012, he also hasn't been given as many chances, having...
Through the first three weeks of the 2013 Major League Baseball season, the St. Louis Cardinals have discovered some young talent in their pitching rotation. Shelby Miller, who had to fight his way into the rotation during spring training, has looked borderline dominant in his first four starts. The rookie hurler might be establishing an early case for the Rookie Of The Year Award...
So far in 2013, St. Louis Cardinals' ace Adam Wainwright is showing that he is worth every penny of the five-year, $97.5 million general manager John Mozeliak gave him late this spring. Wainwright won again on Tuesday night, pitching into the ninth inning for the second time this year in the Cardinals' 2-0 win over the Washington Nationals.
Wainwright is now 4-1 on the young...

Citing the Elias Sports Bureau, the Cardinals said...
Bob Dylan has been on his Never-Ending Tour for multiple decades now. One of the music legend’s summer staples is holding concerts in baseball stadiums. Here in 2013, Dylan is at it again, with St. Louis Cardinals affiliates playing a leading role.

Adam Wainwright extended his sterling start to the season -- and Washington's mediocre one -- by coming within two outs of his second shutout, leading the St. Louis Cardinals past the Nationals 2-0 Tuesday night.
The right-hander (4-1) lowered his ERA to 1.93 by going 8 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing only five hits.

St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams is out of the lineup against the Washington Nationals after feeling soreness in his right side during batting practice.
Manager Mike Matheny said neither Adams nor the team's medical staff thinks the injury is serious.
Adams originally was listed as hitting fifth Monday night. He's batting .524 with three homers and eight RBIs...
Yadier Molina drove in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning, backing Shelby Miller's strong start Monday night, and the St. Louis Cardinals returned to the site of their Game 5 NL division series victory last season with a 3-2 victory over the Washington Nationals.
The other big hit for St. Louis was Allen Craig's two-run double in the third.
Miller (3-1) struck out eight...
On April 23, 1999, then-St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Fernando Tatis smacked a record two, count 'em, two grand slams off Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Chan Ho Park in the same inning.
Now, fourteen years later, Tatis has taken to Twitter to smack talk the Korean hurler.
Now, I don't want to be this guy...but I will. Sure, on that day, Tatis might've...

Six veterans from outside the St. Louis Cardinals system have contributed to Memphis’ good start.
(AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals bounced back, while the Philadelphia Phillies' performance seemed to suggest that the previous game was little more than an aberration.
Philadelphia will turn to Kyle Kendrick as it tries to salvage a four-game split Sunday night at Citizens Bank Ballpark.
The Cardinals (10-7) rebounded from an 8-0 loss Friday for a 5-0 win on Saturday, led by...
