Molina powers Cardinals to 10-6 win over Cubs

Sports

July 15th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Yadier Molina hit a three-run homer in St. Louis’ four-run ninth inning, and the Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 10-6 on Sunday night in the majors’ final game before the All-Star break.

Allen Craig lined a tiebreaking RBI single into left field before Molina drove an 0-2 pitch from Kevin Gregg (2-2) over the wall in left for his seventh homer. Craig and Molina tuned up for Tuesday’s game in New York with four hits apiece, helping St. Louis to a season-high 21 hits overall.

Chicago went up 4-3 on Darwin Barney’s three-run homer in the sixth and pinch hitter Cody Ransom had a tying two-run double in the eighth, but the Cubs’ bullpen was unable to hold off the NL’s highest-scoring team.

Travelers to face Cards’ Carpenter in rehab start

Sports

July 14th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – The Arkansas Travelers are set to face 2005 National League Cy Young Award winner Chris Carpenter as the former St. Louis Cardinals’ ace makes a rehab start for the Double-A Springfield Cardinals.  Carpenter is trying to work his way back from nerve issues that have sidelined the 38-year-old right-hander since before the start of spring training and put his career in jeopardy.

St. Louis manager Mike Matheny has said Carpenter will be limited to a pitch count in the “60s-range” when he starts Monday’s game in Springfield against Arkansas. Carpenter gets one month before a decision must be made about if he’ll play in the majors this season.

Monday’s game is to start shortly after 7 p.m. in Springfield.
