Cardinals Want To Re-Sign Jason Heyward

Oct 16, 2015 7:39 AM

The St. Louis Cardinals have interest in signing Jason Heyward to a long-term contract.

John Mozeliak said Heyward "was a tremendous fit on this club [and] did exactly what we wanted him to do."

The Cardinals acquired Heyward from the Atlanta Braves last November with the intention of using the final year before his free agency to sell St. Louis to him.

"He was as advertised," Mozeliak said. "On a personal level, he's just a genuinely nice person. I think he's one of those guys who could really fit in anywhere. He's a great teammate and very likeable. When you think about bringing players into an organization, there is always that risk. He far exceeded that."

Cubs Clinch Series At Wrigley For First Time Ever

Oct 14, 2015 7:17 AM

The Chicago Cubs defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 6-4 on Tuesday night to advance to the NLCS.

Kyle Schwarber, Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez homered for the Cubs, who clinched a postseason series at Wrigley Field for the first time ever.

"This is all just baseball fantasy, right?" chairman Tom Ricketts said.

Only once since they brought the World Series home in 1908 had the Cubs won a playoff series, and never before had they finished the job at their century-old ballpark.

Yadier Molina Not In Lineup For Game 4

Oct 13, 2015 4:21 PM

The St. Louis Cardinals have scratched Yadier Molina from the lineup for Game 4 of the NLDS against the Chicago Cubs after the catcher experienced weakness in his injured left thumb.

Mike Matheny announced the lineup change before Tuesday's game, saying that he had penciled Molina into the original lineup because he expected that the All-Star would respond well to overnight treatment to his thumb.

Teams Set Record With 21 Home Runs On Monday

Oct 13, 2015 6:56 AM

There were 21 home runs hit on Monday, a record for one day of postseason play.

Howie Kendrick's three-run home run in Game 3 of the NLDS between the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets was the final long ball.

The Chicago Cubs hit a playoff-record six home runs in their victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.

The 61 total runs scored Monday also set a postseason record.

The previous postseason record for home runs was 15, set Oct. 3, 1995, according to STATS. Like Monday, there were four postseason games on that day 20 years ago.

The previous record for runs was 48, set Oct. 5, 2002.

Cubs To Start Hendricks In Game 2 Against Cardinals

Oct 9, 2015 7:14 AM

Joe Maddon says Kyle Hendricks will start for the Chicago Cubs in Game 2 of their best-of-five NL Division Series against the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday.

Hendricks will start over Jason Hammel, who could still get the nod in a potential Game 4.

"I think he's been really sharp," Maddon said of the second-year right-hander. "The fact that he could put the ball on the ground matters a lot, too, keep the ball out of the air. He's just been very sharp, so we just chose to do that."

Jon Lester will start Game 1 for the Cubs on Friday, with Jake Arrieta pitching in Game 3 on Monday at Wrigley Field.

Stephen Piscotty Released From Hospital

Sep 29, 2015 4:20 PM

Stephen Piscotty has been released from the hospital following Monday night's scary collision in the outfield with Peter Bourjos.

The St. Louis Cardinals outfielder "had a couple of bruises but overall everything checked out very clean.  He had a couple more tests today and things came back as positive as we could hope for, so that was very fortunate," Mike Matheny said.

Piscotty lay motionless in the outfield in Pittsburgh after accidentally getting kneed in the head by Bourjos. He was carried off the field on a stretcher.

Adam Wainwright Awaiting Doctor's OK To Return

Sep 28, 2015 5:13 PM

After throwing 27 pitches during a simulated inning on Saturday, Adam Wainwright only needs a doctor's OK to return to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Wainwright described Saturday's session as "much better" than the one he had on Wednesday, when, for the first time since tearing his left Achilles in late April, he tested his pitches against six hitters.

"It felt like me out there today," Wainwright said. "That was incredibly uplifting. My leg feels great. My arm was solid, rebounded great. It was nice to be out there facing big league hitters."

The Cardinals are expected to use Wainwright out of the bullpen if he is able to return.
