June 1st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Tim Hudson threw seven shutout innings and Joaquin Arias keyed a four-run first inning with a two-run single to lead the San Francisco Giants to an 8-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday. The Giants have won five of six and have the best record in the NL at 37-20.

Wacha beats rain, Cardinals top Giants 2-0


May 31st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Michael Wacha worked six innings of three-hit ball in his fifth rain-delayed start of the season and Oscar Taveras homered in his second career at-bat for the St. Louis Cardinals in a 2-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.

Yusmeiro Petit (3-3) gave up two hits in six innings for the Giants, but one of them was Taveras’ 418-foot drive in the fifth. Petit subbed for injured Matt Cain, placed on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury, for the second straight start.

The Cardinals have piled up 6 hours, 30 minutes of idle time in Wacha’s starts, with delays of 51 and 47 minutes Saturday. The total includes a 61-minute weather delay before the first pitch against the Yankees his last start for a storm that failed to materialize, and the Cardinals lost in 12 innings.

Bumgarner, Pence help Giants beat Cardinals 9-4


May 31st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Madison Bumgarner struck out 10 in seven scoreless innings and Hunter Pence hit a three-run homer off Adam Wainwright as the surging San Francisco Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals 9-4 on Friday night. Bumgarner (7-3) allowed three hits and matched a season high for strikeouts set in his previous start against Minnesota. He walked one. San Francisco has won eight of nine and owns the best record in the majors at 36-19.

Pence had two hits and scored twice. Pablo Sandoval extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a single and a double, but his run of nine straight games with an RBI was snapped. Hector Sanchez and Gregor Blanco each had a two-run single for the Giants, who scored seven runs with two outs. San Francisco has scored 117 runs with two outs, tops in the big leagues.

Cardinals call up prospect Taveras


May 31st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals announced after Friday night’s game with the San Francisco Giants that they have called up top prospect Oscar Taveras from Triple-A Memphis. Taveras, a 21-year-old outfielder, was batting .325 in 49 games with Memphis with seven homers and 40 RBIs. He will take the place of Matt Adams, who was put on the disabled list with a left calf strain.

Cardinals senior vice president and general manager John Mozeliak said the move was made when they found out Adams would not be available for a couple more days. “It made sense in two ways,” Mozeliak said. “One, let Matt Adams heal, and two, it’s an opportunity to give Oscar some playing time and not have to worry about the balance of power and worry about who’s playing and who’s not.”

The Cardinals signed Taveras in 2008 out of the Dominican Republic. Before this season, Taveras was ranked as the No. 3 overall prospect by MLB.com and Baseball America. He has a career .321 average over six minor league seasons.

May 31st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Mark Calcavecchia and Wes Short Junior shot 6-under 66 on Friday to share the first-round lead in the Champions Tour’s Principal Charity Classic. Calcavecchia, third last year at the Wakonda Club, had three straight birdies on the back nine for his best start of the season. Short birdied the 18th hole to join Calcavecchia atop the leaderboard.

Bobby Clampett, Peter Senior and Shane Lowery were a stroke back.

Cardinals recall OF Grichuk, option Robinson


May 30th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have juggled their bench, recalling rookie outfielder Randal Grichuk from Triple-A Memphis and optioning outfielder Shane Robinson to that club. The 22-year-old Grichuk hit his team-leading 10th home run Thursday night and is batting .315 with 32 RBIs. He’s among the PCL leaders in slugging percentage and is batting .451 against left-handers.

The Cardinals acquired Grichuk, a first-round pick by the Angels in 2009, from that team in the offseason. He was 3 for 21 in an earlier stint with St. Louis, making four starts. The 29-year-old Robinson appeared in 23 games and was batting .152 with two RBIs.
