Jackson, Rizzo lead Cubs over Cardinals, 3-0

Sports

July 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Edwin Jackson earned his third straight win, combining with four relievers on a four-hitter, and Anthony Rizzo drove in all the runs to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night. St. Louis had the tying run at the plate in the ninth inning after Kevin Gregg dropped a throw covering first on Allen Craig’s grounder, and David Freese walked.

Alfonso Soriano made a shoestring catch on Jon Jay’s liner to end the game. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny was then seen arguing vehemently with plate umpire Dan Bellino and appeared to make contact with him. The Cubs escaped with the win, and Gregg got his 16th save in 18 chances. Jackson (6-10) struck out five without a walk in seven innings. Starlin Castro added three singles and scored two runs for the Cubs, who won for the fifth time in six games.

St. Louis Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday left Thursday’s game against the Chicago Cubs because of an apparent leg injury. Holliday clutched his right hamstring when he was halfway to first base on a grounder to shortstop in the fourth inning and walked gingerly off the field after being tended to by a trainer. He did not take the field in the bottom half. Allen Craig moved from first base to left field, while Matt Adams took over at first and moved into the third spot in the order. The extent of Holliday’s injury was not immediately announced.

Sports

July 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Matt Carpenter hit a two-run home run and Matt Holliday drove in two with a two-out hit to help the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Houston Astros 5-4 on Wednesday night. Carpenter’s ninth homer of the season in the seventh gave the win to Seth Maness. Tony Cruz got hit by starter Jordan Lyles’ first pitch of the inning and one out later Carpenter put a 2-1 pitch into the right field stands off reliever Wesley Wright.

Maness gave up two hits and a run in two innings of relief. He struck out three. Edward Mujica earned his 25th save in 26 tries. He has appeared in six consecutive games, going 1-1 with four saves.

Cardinals RHP Carpenter set for minor league rehab

Sports

July 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter is set to make his first minor league rehabilitation start next week. The former Cy Young winner pitched a three-inning simulated game on Wednesday. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said Carpenter will start Monday for Double-A Springfield. Matheny said Carpenter will be limited to a pitch count in the “60s-range” in his first live action since making three starts during the playoffs last year.

Nerve issues have sidelined the 38-year-old Carpenter since before the start of spring training this season, and it appeared his career might be in jeopardy. Carpenter has made mostly steady progress during the past two months in his comeback attempt. On Wednesday, he faced teammates Shane Robinson, Pete Kozma and Rob Johnson in the simulated game.
