Cards hold off Reds for 2-1 win

Tha Cardinals won another tight affair Friday at Busch Stadium, beating the Cincinnati Reds 2-1. The victory featured a stout pitching performance by starter John Lackey.

The ninth-inning included...

Will the St. Louis Cardinals finally stick with Jon Jay as a regular starter?

The St. Louis Cardinals have received impressive contributions from a large number of young players who graduated through the team’s farm system in recent years, but none may be more underappreciated than Jon Jay. Jay has been in Major League Baseball for five years now after his debut in 2010 when he hit a solid .300 in 105 games for the last Cardinals team to fail to reach the...

Offense, blown save in 9th can’t back up Lance Lynn as Cardinals fall 3-2 to Brewers in 12

The Cardinals would score two runs in the Bottom of the 1st to take a 2-0 lead. Their two runs scored came without a hit as Matt Adams walked with the bases loaded and nobody out then Jhonny Peralta grounded into a double play, which then scored Jon Jay. Those two runs were just enough for Cardinals’ starter Lance Lynn Tuesday night at Busch Stadium. However, that wouldn’t be...

History suggests visit from Rockies is just what Cardinals need

The NL Central was starting to look like the St. Louis Cardinals' division after they won six of seven last week against their two pursuing opponents. Three straight losses heading into their final 15 games have re-established a level of uncertainty, but history suggests this visit from the Colorado Rockies might send the club back in the right direction. The Cardinals begin...

Johnny Cueto out-duels Lance Lynn as Reds edge Cardinals 1-0

If you like pitcher’s duels, Thursday afternoon’s series finale between the Reds and Cardinals in Cincinnati was definitely the game for your liking. Lance Lynn vs Johnny Cueto did not disappoint. Lance Lynn was through seven shutout innings only allowing two hits after retiring 15 consecutive batters. Johnny Cueto also had gone seven shutout innings. That was because of Jay...

Lynn couldn't have pitched much better, yet loses to Reds

On a day when Lance Lynn and Johnny Cueto both were dealing, their defense proved to be the difference Thursday afternoon at Cincinnati. The Reds made two run-saving plays and the Cardinals' Jon Jay misplayed a ball that led to a run. The result: Reds, 1-0. The Reds did not reach third base until the bottom of the eighth when Lynn walked Brandon Phillips to lead off the inning...

Jon Jay, Cardinals' second-half MVP? He could well be

Maybe Jon Jay is waiting to tell us, "I told you so." Or maybe he's not that type of guy. Or maybe he knows that little good can come from gloating. At this point, Jay doesn't need to say a word about how he was dismissed by the Cardinals' front office last offseason. He has said far more with his performance than he could with any verbal retort. How's this...

Mike Matheny took issue with Brewers third baseman Hector Gomez on Thursday night

The Cardinals were in position to tack on an insurance run, leading 3-2 in the top of the ninth inning in last night’s game against the Brewers. The bases were loaded with one out for Yadier Molina, who hit a fly ball to medium depth right field. Brewers right fielder Gerardo Parra picked up some momentum and fired a one-hop strike to catcher Martin Maldonado, who tagged out Jon...

Jon Jay, Matt Holliday come through in the 7th to back up John Lackey as Cardinals win 3-2

John Lackey got the start for the Cardinals in the series opener Monday night in Pittsburgh against the Pirates. A newly acquired Cardinals’ pitcher didn’t seem to mind Cardinal killer Pedro Alvarez. Alvarez gave the Pirates a 1-0 lead in the Bottom of the 2nd. That was his 18th home run of the season and his 15th career home run against the Cardinals. But that would be the only...

Game 130: It’s Jon Jay’s World & We’re Just Living In It

Just like we said at the beginning of the season… as long as Jon Jay and John Lackey are playing up to expectations, this Cardinals team is going to be just fine. What? You don’t believe it?

How do the Cardinals' July trades affect their roster going forward?

The Cardinals current and future roster changed dramatically in July when John Mozeliak jettisoned Allen Craig, Joe Kelly and minor leaguer James Ramsey in exchange for pitchers Justin Masterson and John Lackey, along with minor leaguer pitcher Corey Littrell.Kelly would have been under team control through the 2018 season and Craig was signed to a reasonable contract through the...

Jon Jay Is Carrying The Cardinals On His Back

Jon Jay, man. Dude was left for dead on the Cardinals roster this spring. With the addition of Peter Bourjos and the ascendance of Oscar Taveras – there just wasn’t going to be much PT for our friend. As they push down the homestretch, the Cardinals have moved to 12 games over .500 and nights like last night are a big reason for this mini-surge. 3-4. 2 runs. 1 RBI. And a stint...

Pitchers be warned: Jon Jay is swinging a ridiculously hot bat right now for the Cardinals

ST. LOUIS -- Have a game, Jon Jay. Better yet, have a home stand. Even better, have an August. Jay wrapped up a superb home stand and continued a scorching August by reaching base four times for the second night in a row to lead the Cardinals to a 7-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night. His night started, not surprisingly, when he was hit on the right leg by the...

Dugout Digest – fresh fish

I want to spend a moment talking about a team that isn’t getting nearly enough attention in the NL playoff chase – the Miami Marlins. The Marlins have won three in a row, and have moved to just 2.5 games back of the Giants and Braves for the NL’s second Wild Card spot. Given the collapses in recent days of the Pirates and Reds, the door is open for the Marlins to make a move...

Deja woo-hoo! Cardinals enjoy another walk-off over the Reds

ST. LOUIS -- There's a reason the Cardinals' 5-4 victory over the Reds on Tuesday night felt like their 6-5 victory Monday night. That's because it was quite similar and for several reasons, actually. Start with the obvious. The Cardinals walked off with a win for the second night in a row. Both times, Matt Holliday started the winning rally and both times Matt Adams...

Jon Jay gives the Cardinals their second walk-off hit by pitch of the season in 5-4 win over Reds

Alfredo Simon, a 12-game winner and an All-Star took the hill Tuesday night at Busch Stadium. After the All-Star break, Simon was 0-5 in his last five starts with an ERA over .500. Of course, he would settle the Cardinals offense in Game 2 of this three game series, for 5.1 innings. The Cardinals would take a 1-0 lead in the Bottom of the 3rd on a two-out RBI single by Matt Holliday...

The Cardinals began their heavy NL Central schedule down the stretch with 30 out of their last 39 games against divisional opponents, with 23 of them coming against the Reds, Pirates, and Brewers. Monday night at Busch Stadium against Cincinnati would take extra innings, with the Reds playing a doubleheader in Colorado the night before. That would turn out to be in favor of the Cardinals...

Jay keeps delivering key hits with both his bat and his (bruised) body

ST. LOUIS -- In what almost qualifies as a news flash these days, Cardinals out fielder Jon Jay was not hit by a pitch Sunday. His body certainly could use a respite after being plunked five times in the previous four days.   In another development that hardly qualifies as a news flash these days, Jay delivered another big hit for the Cardinals on Sunday.

Poll Results: Who will be the Cardinals’ center fielder in 2015?

After asking this question, I was amazed to see the results shift over the past couple of days. The poll first began with the “outside player” opening up a huge lead on Jon Jay. As the week went on, the lead shrunk to single digits, probably due to his increased level of play the last couple of days. Here are the results: Take Our Poll There will always be fans that do...
