Adam Wainwright’s gem leads Cardinals to 1-0 win over Cubs

Matt Holliday hit his 10th home run of the season with a solo shot in the Top of the 1st giving the Cardinals a 1-0 lead. That was all Cardinals’ ace Adam Wainwright needed.

Cardinals Have To Get Better At Replay Challenges

Friends, I know it doesn’t feel significant, but it is. Mike Matheny and the Cardinals have to get better at replay challenges. Sunday’s 1-0 win was a brisk, tense game. With no margin for error, Wainwright pitched a gem and the game winning RBI came off Matt Holliday’s home run in the top of the 1st. Should it have been so close? Before Holliday’s at bat, Kolten Wong hit...

Matt Holliday needs to step up for the St. Louis Cardinals

As the Cards begin their “second half”, they have many unanswered questions: Who will make up the rotation? Can Adam Wainwright stay healthy and as effective as he was in the first half?  Will Shelby Miller ever improve? Can Allen Craig even step into the shadow of his 2013 performance? It’s a dizzying array of [...]

Hard-hitting Holliday provides plenty of support for Lynn's strong outing

ST. LOUIS -- Matt Holliday wasn't overly impressed with himself after scoring the 1,000th run and delivering the 400th double of his 11-year career Friday night. "It's cool," he shrugged. But Holliday was quite pleased with the 435-foot, two-run homer he launched off an 87-mph fastball from Dodgers right-hander Dan Haren. For one thing, the fifth-inning blast proved...

Matt Holliday’s fantastic spring hitting

Few can draw the enthusiasm or criticism from St. Louis Cardinals fans like Matt Holliday. Since coming to the team in 2009, he’s had only two seasons where he failed to attain at least a .300 average. In both cases, he fell short by .005 or less. His on-base percentage in that time has hovered right around the .390 mark. Despite his decidedly positive numbers, leadership has a...
