Wong’s slam paces Cardinals’ 4-1 win over Reds


July 28th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Kolten Wong hit a grand slam that backed Lance Lynn and led the St. Louis Cardinals over the Cincinnati Reds 4-1 Monday night. Wong connected on a 3-2 fastball from rookie Raisel Iglesias (1-3) with two outs in the fourth, putting St. Louis ahead 4-1. Wong’s second career grand slam easily cleared the right- field wall, landing in the home bullpen. The Cardinals have won six of seven, are a big league-best 64-35 record and lead the NL Central by 6 ½ games.

Lynn (8-5) allowed one run and five hits in seven innings, improving to 7-3 against the Reds. He has won five of his last six decisions overall. Trevor Rosenthal earned his 31st save in 33 chances after getting two days off.

In other Card’s News…

Catcher Yadier Molina was replaced by a pinch hitter in the bottom of the fifth inning of a game against Cincinnati because he was feeling ill. Tony Cruz grounded out to end the fifth and then took over behind the plate against the Reds on Monday night. Molina doubled and scored on Kolten Wong’s grand slam in the fourth.

St. Louis Cardinals players arrived to un-air conditioned Busch Stadium on Monday. The problem was fixed by mid-afternoon, several hours before a game against the Cincinnati Reds. Manager Mike Matheny downplayed the situation, noting he grew up without air conditioning. Matheny joked that his wife sets the thermostat at “about 47 degrees” and that he thought they were “trying to raise penguins.” The problem was first noted during a news conference at adjacent Ballpark Village to promote the United States’ opening qualifier for the 2018 World Cup, in November.

Braves avoid sweep with 3-2 victory over Cardinals


July 26th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Adonis Garcia’s first career home run broke a tie and rookie Matt Wisler worked seven strong innings in helping the Atlanta Braves to a 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday. Wisler (5-1) limited the Cardinals to seven hits and walked three in his longest outing since he worked eight innings to beat the Mets in his debut June 19.

The Braves took advantage of Michael Wacha’s wildness for a 2-0 lead in the second inning. Ryan Lavarnway doubled into the left-field corner to score Eury Perez, who had worked a one-out walk. Following a two-out walk to Jace Peterson, Cameron Maybin singled in Lavarnaway. Wacha needed 51 pitches to get through the first two innings.

The Cardinals evened the score with runs in the fourth and fifth. Matt Holliday’s double into the right-field corner scored Kolten Wong, who had doubled, to tie the game in the fifth.
