Adams’ homer gives Cardinals 2-0 win over Pirates


July 8th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Matt Adams hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the St. Louis Cardinals a 2-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night in the opener of a four-game series with the NL Central rival they topped in the division series last fall.

Matt Carpenter walked to lead off the ninth and Matt Holliday flied out. Adams then hit his 10th homer on an 0-1 pitch from Justin Wilson for his first career game-winning homer. It was the Cardinals’ first game-winning homer since Skip Schumaker connected against the Kansas City Royals on June 19, 2011.

Charlie Morton allowed one hit in seven innings for Pittsburgh, which stranded 12 runners. Adam Wainwright, the Cardinals’ 11-game winner, scattered seven hits in seven scoreless innings. Pat Neshek worked a perfect ninth against the top of the order for St. Louis.

St. Louis Cardinals baseball news


July 8th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals recalled left-hander Tyler Lyons from Triple-A Memphis and optioned fellow lefty Marco Gonzales to the minors, a day after he started against the Marlins. The 26-year-old Lyons was 0-3 with a 6.12 ERA in six appearances, including four starts, earlier this season. He went on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder strain on May 13 and has made three starts since being reinstated on June 19.

The 22-year-old Gonzales made three starts for the Cardinals and was 0-2 with a 7.07 ERA, allowing one run in 4 2-3 innings Sunday while walking five. He was a first-round pick last year and is 5-4 with a 1.89 ERA in 13 starts at Class A Palm Beach and Double-A Springfield, and is at the Triple-A level for the first time.


The St. Louis Cardinals say an MRI exam on right-hander Michael Wacha’s injured shoulder showed progress, but not enough for him to resume throwing. General manager John Mozeliak said Monday that Wacha, the NL championship series MVP last fall, will be evaluated again in two weeks. He said continued treatment along with weight training to strengthen the area around the stress fracture was in the pitcher’s best interests.

Wacha has been on the 15-day disabled list since June 18. He’s 5-5 with a 2.79 ERA for the defending National League champions. Mozeliak said Joe Kelly, on the DL since April 17 with a left hamstring strain, could return to the rotation Friday at Milwaukee.

Alvarez leads way, Marlins beat Cardinals 8-4


July 6th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Henderson Alvarez worked seven stingy innings and started the key rally with the first of his career-best three hits, helping the Miami Marlins beat the St. Louis Cardinals 8-4 Sunday to take two of three from their spring training partners.

Casey McGehee extended his hitting streak to a career-high 13 games with an RBI single in the first. Marcell Ozuna had a two-run single in a three-run sixth that made it 4-0, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s three-run homer off Jason Motte put Miami up 8-1 in the eighth.

The first two games of the series were decided by one run.

The Marlins have won a franchise-record 10 straight games started by Alvarez (6-3), and they easily took the series finale despite stranding 14 runners. Alvarez is 4-0 with a 1.04 ERA during that stretch, allowing no more than two runs in any outing.
