ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Jon Jay scored from first on right fielder Giancarlo Stanton's throwing error on Shane Robinson's single with two outs in the ninth inning, giving the St. Louis Cardinals a 5-4 victory over the Florida Marlins on Saturday.
Edward Mujica (1-1) worked a scoreless ninth for the Cardinals after Matt Adams' pinch-hit two-run homer tied it two innings earlier.
Jay drew a full-count walk off A.J. Ramos (3-3) with two outs in the ninth and had third easily on Robinson's pinch-hit single, then scored without a play after Stanton hesitated before throwing a relay that skipped under Morrison's glove at first base.
The Marlins got homers from Derek Dietrich and Logan Morrison but their run of four straight series wins ended after dropping the first two against the Cardinals.
Manager Mike Redmond was ejected for arguing a close play at the plate in the fourth, with replays indicating Adeiny Hechavarria's legs crossed the plate before catcher Tony Cru...
BEST OF MAXIM
Cardinals' Nation is abuzz about Jon Jay and his production (or lack thereof). Many are calling for the Cardinals to make a change and soon.
Bernie Miklasz wrote an article yesterday highlighting Jay's deficiencies on offense and defense and suggests that the Cards could look for an alternative on the trade market.
John Nagel of CardinalsFarm suggests that the Cardinals...
ST. LOUIS, Mo. MattCarpenter, Allen Craig, Carlos Beltran and Yadier Molina are in. So is AdamWainwright, with an asterisk. Don't rule out Edward Mujica, Shelby Miller,Lance Lynn or Trevor Rosenthal just yet, either.And there you go. With fiveplayers named to the National League All-Star team Saturday and a possibility anothercould be added, the Cardinals will be well represented...
Edward Mujica had converted all 21 save chances he had this season prior to Thursday night. But the St. Louis Cardinals closer blew his first save of the season when he allowed the Los Angeles Angels to score three runs in the ninth for a 6-5 comeback win on July 4. Mujica allowed four hits [...]
St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina believes a little rest is all he needs after an MRI exam on his right knee showed only inflammation. He's hopeful of being back in the lineup on Tuesday.
"Everything came back negative and that's a relief," Molina said Sunday. "A couple days and I'll be ready to go."
Molina, who topped NL vote-getters for...
ST. LOUIS At least three times this season, Mike Matheny has made a late-inning pitching decision that has backfired on the Cardinals. At least three times, the second-guessers have had a field day questioning his moves.
On May 30, with a 2-1 lead, he brought in Mitchell Boggs to close out the Royals. Boggs gave up a game-tying homer to Jeff Francoeur on his second pitch...
The St. Louis Cardinals were hoping that Joe Kelly would be able to step in and fill the void in the starting rotation. He did so in 2012 as a rookie and after some dynamite long relief appearances out of the bullpen, Kelly seemed poised to handle the pressure.
Kelly pitched alright on Saturday afternoon in the Cardinals 5-4 win over the Miami Marlins. He went six innings and allowed...
(via CardinalsFarm.com) The Baby Birds ended the night 3-3 with the GCL Cards rained out this afternoon. Memphis, Palm Beach, and Peoria were your winners and Springfield, State College, and Johnson City were on the losing end on Friday.
A couple of young arms were on center stage Friday as Carlos Martinez started for Memphis and Zach Petrick for Palm Beach.
Petrick shined in...
It was a very successful night for the Baby Birds as the Cardinal affiliates went 6-1 prior to the result of the Palm Beach game which was not know at the time of publication. Memphis, Springfield, Peoria, State College, Johnson City, and the GCL Cards all won. The GCL Cards also lost the second game of a double-header.
In the upper minors, Nick Additon of Memphis and Tim Cooney...
The St. Louis Cardinals lost one a spot for one of their many sluggers Friday when they mercifully returned to Busch Stadium to face the Miami Marlins. The loss of the designated hitter in their return to National League play might actually help the team.
The Cardinals 6-5 Independence Day loss on Thursday to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim finished the worst two-week stretch...
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Jake Westbrook worked seven strong innings and Allen Craig had two RBIs for a lineup that spoiled Jacob Turner's homecoming early on in the St. Louis Cardinals' 4-1 victory over the Miami Marlins on Friday night.
Matt Holliday doubled twice with an RBI and Edward Mujica rebounded with the save for the Cardinals, who had lost eight of 11 and plummeted from...
(via sammystava.mlblogs.com) 46,177 were in attendance tonight at Busch Stadium while the St. Louis Cardinals, behind Jake Westbrook, defeated the Miami Marlins 4-1 to open up a five game home-stand. Mike Shannon bobble-head night marked the 11th sellout of the season and the largest crowd since Opening Day.
Westbrook improved to 5-3 on the season lasting 7 innings, allowing 1 run...
It might be the most prestigious tennis tournament at the world, but even the hallowed grounds of Wimbledon aren't off-limits to Cardinal Nation.
Kudos to this man (shown several times on ESPN) rocking his New Era authentic head top.
A couple of points:
1) Now that I'm looking at this, I'm pretty sure he isn't picking his nose and that it's just...
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Lance Lynn outpitched Marlins All-Star Jose Fernandez for his 11th win and Matt Holliday homered for the St. Louis Cardinals in a 3-2 victory that wrapped up a three-game sweep Sunday.
Lynn (11-3) worked seven strong innings in 87-degree heat and matched All-Star Adam Wainwright for the team lead in wins, bouncing back from losses in consecutive starts for the...

Yadier Molina, St. Louis Cardinals
-Molina’s defense was the deciding factor in giving him the starting job. He consistently gets on base (.352 BA, .394 OBP), has a 151 wRC+, and leads all catchers with a 3.7 WAR. Molina has been setting the bar for all MLB catchers for the last several years.
