The St. Louis Cardinals are now likely to make the postseason, something that seemed unimaginable on Aug. 10. If you would have told me on Aug. 10 that the St. Louis Cardinals, then 8.5 games out of the second National League wild card spot, would be in position to make the postseason, I would have laughed and told you there was little chance.
It’s no coincidence that Jon Lester’s resurgence has coincided with the St. Louis Cardinals’ breakout. The deal to acquire Jon Lester looks like the steal of the trade deadline. Since being acquired, Lester has been a revelation for the St. Louis Cardinals, allowing two or less runs in seven of...
Injuries have ruined the careers of many wonderful athletes. Long before many surgeries like Tommy John were commonplace, athletes would suffer a torn ligament or something similar and see their careers flash before their eyes. One member of the New York Mets you may remember who suffered this poor fate is Bob Apodaca.
SAN FRANCISCO -- Since stunning Walker Buehler and the Dodgers on "Sunday Night Baseball" on Sept. 5, the Giants have won 10 of 13 games. They swept a road trip through Denver and Chicago, split with the desperate San Diego Padres, and took two of three from the Atlanta Braves, the team likely to win the NL East.
It was a stunning and dramatic visual. It goes high on the list of the top scenes for the 2021 Cardinals. It wasn’t meant to be, but here we were. Watching. Marveling. Amazed. Dumbfounded. And maybe even a little emotional. Pitcher Jon Lester. His arms wrapped around catcher Yadier Molina...
Reds, Pirates continue three-game series at 6:40 p.m. Tuesday. Time is running out for the Cincinnati Reds. Although the Reds rallied from a 5-0 deficit to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-5 on Monday night, the St. Louis Cardinals won their ninth straight game — 5-2 over the Milwaukee Brewers — to maintain a three-game lead in the race for the second wild card.
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - On Saturday, St. Louis Cardinals veteran Adam Wainwright pitched in front of one of the largest crowds at Busch Stadium we've had all season. He hopes to do it again before the season is over. He and the team announced some special cheap tickets will be...
ST. LOUIS — While at times this season it may have looked improbable, the Cardinals have fought their way into the playoff hunt with just a handful of games left. Even though the Central Division crown is all but out of reach thanks to the impressive season from the Milwaukee Brewers, the Cardinals still have a chance at the second National League Wild Card spot.
The 2021 regular season is winding down and we’re starting to get a picture of how the MLB playoffs will
The St. Louis Cardinals shouldn't be here, leading the race for the second and final wild card in the National League and certainly not by a suddenly comfortable margin. Just three weeks or so ago I was on local radio in St. Louis and the host was relating that it had been a rather desultory season for the Cardinals.
Brett Anderson's start for the Milwaukee Brewers against the Cardinals will likely be a 'short' stint as he returns from an injury
Left-hander Brett Anderson, sidelined since taking a liner off his pitching shoulder Sept. 1 in San Francisco, will return to the Milwaukee Brewers starting rotation Wednesday against the St. Louis Cardinals. It’s the first time the Brewers have needed a sixth starter since Anderson was injured. Anderson has thrown several...
Tyler Anderson with yet another dominant outing last night as the Mariners cruise to a 4-2 win against the Oakland Athletics. Congrats to Salvador Perez on setting a new single-season record for most homers by a catcher!. Jon Lester sets a record of his own as he records his 200th...
ST. LOUIS – Through their recent play, the Cardinals have launched themselves into contention for a playoff spot. At one point in August, the Cardinals were 8.5 games out of the second National League wild card spot. The Redbirds’ offense was sputtering and their pitching situation was questionable at best.
The Cincinnati Reds trailed the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-0 in the third inning on Monday night, but a two-out walk to Jonathan India got the rally started. Kyle Farmer followed with a single, Nick Castellanos pounded a two-RBI double to center field, and Joey Votto played long ball to bring the Reds within a run.
After a month on the injured list, Tyrone Taylor is back for the Milwaukee Brewers. He was activated from the IL earlier today, with Miguel Sanchez being optioned back to Nashville. Taylor has been an excellent bench player and starter for the Brewers this season, posting a .245/.324/.453 batting line and 106 wRC+. He has played in 82 games and started 49, moving between the three outfield spots as needed. Taylor gets the start tonight as both Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain get nights off.
Detroit — The Tigers took down yet another first-place team Monday night, beating the Central Division-leading Chicago White Sox with a 4-3 comeback win before 12,884 at Comerica Park. Detroit has won three straight, having taken the last two games at Tampa Bay against the East Division-leading Rays. They also...
