Cardinals ready for a long day of baseball with the Cubs

After failing to stifle one of the Chicago Cubs' top prospects, the St. Louis Cardinals are on the verge of matching their longest losing streak this season. The Cardinals will seek to avoid a fourth consecutive defeat in Saturday's opener to a doubleheader, and Justin Masterson will try to shake off another lackluster outing while attempting to contain promising rookie Jorge...

Cubs' rookies get the best of Cardinals' most reliable reliever

ST. LOUIS -- On Friday night when the most valuable Cardinal returned after a seven-week absence, the most dependable Cardinal struggled like he hadn't all season. The difficulties of reliever Pat Neshek determined the outcome of the Cubs' 7-2 victory far more than the comeback of Yadier Molina, who went 0 for 4 but experienced no issues with his surgically repaired right...

Soler's two HRs, Baez double sends Cubs past Cards

ST. LOUIS -- Jorge Soler hit two homers and fellow rookie Javier Baez had a tiebreaking, two-run double in the eighth inning off All-Star reliever Pat Neshek as the Chicago Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-2 on Friday night. The Cardinals lost in the return of star catcher Yadier Molina. He had been out since July 9 because of a torn ligament in his right thumb, and went 0 for...

All eyes are on St. Louis as the Rams' final roster gets closer and closer to becoming official.  According to USA Today's Tom Pelissero, the Rams cut 17 from their roster on Friday night -- and Michael Sam wasn't one of them.  St. Louis will need to trim five players in order to have their roster total 53 by Saturday's 4 p.m. ET deadline.  Sam was credited with...

He's back! Cardinals activate Molina from DL

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals have activated All-Star catcher Yadier Molina from the 15-day disabled list in time for a weekend series against the Chicago Cubs. The 32-year-old Molina tore a ligament in his right thumb sliding into third base on July 9 and he underwent surgery on July 11. Catcher Tony Cruz was optioned to Double-A Springfield.

Mizzou's season-opening roster isn't as inexperienced as it looks

For a team that lost seven starters on both offense and defense, Missouri will actually put more experience on the field than one might think in Saturday's home opener against South Dakota State. But that doesn't mean the Tigers don't need to make the most of their opportunity to gel before a big step up in competition next week. If they don't, a freshman class with...

'Redeemed' Tyron Woodley wants to call the shots for his next bout

ST. LOUIS -- Tyron Woodley isn't quite sure when the UFC will call about his next fight, but he knows what he wants to hear. Something like this: "How would you like to take on Matt Brown in the co-main event before a Johny Hendricks-Robbie Lawler title fight? And if you win, you get your shot at the title." Woodley, in fact, has been calling for such a scenario since...

There are rumblings that Yadi Molina is ready to work in St. Louis

After Yadier Molina tore a ligament in his right thumb July 9, the St. Louis Cardinals were told their star catcher would be out 8-12 weeks and may miss the remainder of the regular season. Molina seemingly ignored the timeline. He's expected to join the Cardinals for Friday night's series opener and possibly play against the visiting Chicago Cubs, much to the delight of...

Rams wrap preseason with no new injuries and same old roster questions

Five Rams starters didn't return to the field last Saturday in Cleveland after suffering first-half injuries, including quarterback Sam Bradford's second ACL tear in less than a year. Although three of them were healthy enough to play, coach Jeff Fisher decided not to take any chances Thursday night in Miami. He told St. Louis FOX2now at halftime that last week's bad...

Dolphins top Rams 14-13 in preseason finale

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Matt Hazel caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Seth Lobato with 6:15 left, and the Miami Dolphins rallied to beat the St. Louis Rams 14-13 in the preseason finale for both teams. Daniel Thomas had a 5-yard touchdown run for Miami, which trailed 13-0 entering the final quarter. Austin Davis threw for 162 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown pass to Austin...

Missouri opens season with veteran D-line

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Markus Golden isn't a conventional team captain. The senior defensive end transferred to Missouri from Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College two years ago, and has no career starts with the Tigers. He's not without experience, though. Golden backed up NFL draft picks Michael Sam and Kony Ealy last season, yet managed to record 55 tackles -- including 13 for...

Molina's pending return shouldn't signal Pierzynski's farewell

ST. LOUIS -- If Yadier Molina's rehab goes as well Thursday night in Springfield as it did on Wednesday, he could be back in the Cardinals' lineup as soon as Friday. Which would make for a rather remarkable return. When he underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb July 11, the club said Molina was expected to miss eight to 12 weeks. A Friday comeback...

Teryn's Take: Baseball and football intersect this Labor Day weekend

ST. LOUIS -- It's hard to believe we are almost kissing our summer goodbye and bringing in September with the celebration of Labor Day this weekend. The holiday serves as an intersection of many of the major sports we follow in this area, ushering in the teams of fall as baseball's regular season moves into its final month. The Cardinals are off Thursday after a not-so-successful...

NHL says it is only discussing expanding league

The NHL insists expansion is not imminent. "Nothing has happened to change the status quo," NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said in a telephone interview Wednesday with The Associated Press. "There continues to be interest from some markets, and we continue to be interested in discussing the possibilities, but there is no plan moving forward in terms of expansion...

Even with Bradford out, this could be a breakout year for Tavon Austin

ST. LOUIS -- Speed might be the most valuable asset at the wide receiver position, and few in the NFL can run faster than St. Louis' Tavon Austin. In the most promising game of his rookie season, he made the Indianapolis defense look like it was standing still on touchdown catches of 57 and 81 yards in a 38-8 rout of the AFC South champions. Those two plays were preceded by a...

Wainwright takes loss, is ready to put August behind him

For one inning anyway, Adam Wainwright pitched like Adam Wainwright of the first half. But for the next five innings at Pittsburgh on Wednesday afternoon, he was back in his "grindy" mode, his second-half "funk" or whatever you want to call it. Still, put the six innings together and Wainwright was good enough to record a quality start. But he wasn't good...

Sam gets last chance at a preseason impression

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Michael Sam is about to get one last chance to show the St. Louis Rams why he belongs on their 53-man roster. For him -- and everyone else on NFL roster bubbles -- a preseason finale is anything but meaningless. Sam and the Rams visit the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night, the last exhibition for both clubs and the last opportunity for players to state their...

Protecting the Rams' QB is more important than embracing him

ST. LOUIS -- It's only natural that when a team's starting quarterback is lost for the season in a meaningless preseason game, the intense focus will be on that position and the player stepping up to replace him. At the same time, at least publicly, other important issues get pushed to the background. That has clearly been the case since the moment this past Sunday afternoon...

The goal going forward for Wainwright? Execute pitches

After a remarkable first half, it hasn't gone so well for Adam Wainwright. Despite his recent woes, Wainwright still has a chance to become baseball's first 16-game winner Wednesday as the visiting St. Louis Cardinals wrap up a three-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates, who could be without reigning NL MVP Andrew McCutchen. Wainwright (15-8, 2.52 ERA) has alternated...

Cardinals get another quality start from Lynn but can't crack Cole

As losses go, the Cardinals' 5-2 defeat to the Pirates on Tuesday night really wasn't that bad. At least when compared to what it would have done to the other guys. Yes, the Cardinals were in prime position to deal the home team a devastating loss. They had managed to tie the game at two even though Pirates starter Gerrit Cole no-hit them until two were out in the sixth....

The Pirates won after reigning NL MVP Andrew McCutchen left in the fifth inning because of discomfort in his left ribs. Recently on the disabled list because of a rib problem, the center fielder...

The St. Louis Rams coach has no other choice but to press on without Sam Bradford and place total trust in journeyman Shaun Hill. "He actually completed some passes today," Fisher said after the first practice without the first...
