St. Louis Cardinals Inconsistency To End Soon, Good Or Bad

The highly favored St. Louis Cardinals have sputtered through the 2014 Major League Baseball season so much that it has often felt as if they’ve squashed much of the optimism from a fan base that was often over-exuberant in its preseason hopes for another run to the World Series. But the vague fog that has hung over much of the season should be set to soon clear, although it doesn’t...

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...

Ike Davis’ three run blast in the 8th lifts Pirates past Cardinals 5-2

Lance Lynn was looking for his 15th win of the season Tuesday night at PNC Park, which would put him tied atop the lead in wins in the majors. His outing would give the Cardinals a chance to win. But this night would belong to Pirates’ starter Gerrit Cole through the first six innings. He threw six scoreless innings, only to allow one hit. A two-out double by Kolten Wong would...

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....

What if Adam Wainwright Just Misses his Catcher?

Adam Wainwright would tell you himself: he’s currently in a funk, and he’s been in a funk for about a month and a half. It’s not like you have to dig very deep to find out why he feels that way. After blanking the Pirates on July 7, Wainwright’s ERA stood at 1.79. Since then, […]

September will bring Cardinals lots of appealing lineup options

ST. LOUIS -- If Mike Matheny thought filling out the Cardinals' lineup card was tricky in July, wait until September. With two injured stars nearing their returns and a bunch of September call-ups on deck, Matheny figures to have more options than a five-star recruit choosing a college. The St. Louis manager isn't about to complain, either. With the Cardinals pushing for...

The 2014 Season, Summed Up In One Game

For six innings last night , the Cardinals look listless.  Absolutely no offense to speak of and only the great starting pitching was keeping them in the game. Sound familiar?  Seems pretty much the way things are going this year, especially when you apply it to the division race.  Nothing seems to be going right, yet they stay within [...]

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 131: Cardinals 3 Pirates 2

I don’t know what to say about this game that hasn’t been said about one of the other million close losses the Pirates have to key divisional opponents this year: the Pirates hit John Lackey hard for most of his start tonight, but only ended up with Pedro Alvarez’s solo home run to show for it. Francisco Liriano looked great until he suddenly didn’t, then the bullpen came...
