Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Notches 13th homer
Edman went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Brewers.
Just a few days after reaching the 25-steal milestone, Edman tied his career-high in home runs Tuesday with 13. The long ball was his first of September. During his last eight appearances, Edman is 9-for-31 (.290) with one RBI and three runs scored.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Ryan Helsley: Snares 13th save
Helsley picked up the save in Tuesday's 4-1 victory over the Brewers. He struck out three over a perfect inning.
Helsley struck out all three batters he faced Tuesday to nab his 13th save of the season. The performance was a perfect bounceback after Helskley walked three batters and blew a save in his last appearance. In September, Helsley owns a 0.84 ERA and a 17:6 K:BB with six saves across 10.2 innings... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Dominant for eighth win
Mikolas (8-13) earned the win Tuesday, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over seven innings against the Brewers. He struck out five.
After allowing five earned runs and taking the loss in each of his last three starts, Mikolas rattled off seven innings of one-run baseball against Milwaukee. The outing marked Mikolas' second time in his last 10 starts not allowing a home run. Over that stretch (60 innings), Mikolas owns a 6.00 ERA with a 33:13 K:BB. He's lined up to close out the Cardinals regular season Sunday against the Reds at Busch Stadium.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Won't pitch again
Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol confirmed Tuesday that Wainwright (back/shoulder) will not pitch again this season, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
Wainwright recorded his 200th career major-league win Sept. 18 against the Brewers, but he's been dealing with back and shoulder discomfort ever since. The 42-year-old right-hander will remain on the active roster and could even take an at-bat over the final weekend of the regular season, but he has thrown his last pitch and is expected to formally announce his retirement in the coming weeks....

Cardinals' Zack Thompson: Start pushed to Wednesday
Thompson will start Wednesday's game at Milwaukee, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
Thompson had been lined up to work Tuesday's series opener versus the Brewers, but Miles Mikolas will now get that nod so that he can also potentially handle Sunday's season finale against the Reds back at Busch Stadium. Thompson, 25, has registered an overall 4.57 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 67:24 K:BB in 61 innings (eight starts, 16 relief appearances) this year with St. Louis.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Start pushed up to Tuesday
Mikolas will start Tuesday's game in Milwaukee, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
Mikolas has flip-flopped with Zack Thompson, who will now start Wednesday's game against the Brewers. Dakota Hudson is on tap for Thursday's series finale. This slight change to the schedule could allow Mikolas to fit in two more starts before the Cardinals' season comes to a close.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Luken Baker: Lifts second homer
Baker went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Sunday's 12-2 loss to the Padres.
Baker produced the Cardinals' lone scoring play with his seventh-inning blast. He's seen steadier playing time over the last week, going 4-for-17 (.235) over his last six games. The 26-year-old is batting .217 with two homers, seven RBI, six runs scored and a double across 76 plate appearances in the majors this year. With the Cardinals in last in the NL Central, he'll likely get some more at-bats over the final week of the campaign as part of the evaluation for next season's roster.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Drew Rom: Hit hard by Padres
Rom (1-4) allowed eight runs (six earned) on 11 hits and a walk over 3.1 innings Sunday, striking out four and taking a loss against San Diego.
Rom served up a three-run shot to Juan Soto in the first frame and allowed at least one run in each inning he appeared in. After his first career scoreless start, Rom has been tagged with 11 earned runs in just 6.2 innings over his last two outings. His ERA has shot up to 7.98 through 29.1 MLB frames. Rom is currently lined up to finish his 2023 campaign with a home matchup against the Reds.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jose Fermin: Out of Sunday's lineup
Fermin is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at San Diego, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Fermin finds himself on the bench for the second straight game after he started the previous three contests. The 24-year-old has a .497 OPS in 43 plate appearances this season and should continue to see opportunities during the final week with Nolan Arenado (back) shut down.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jordan Walker: Posts steal Saturday
Walker went 1-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 5-2 extra-innings win over the Padres.
Walker's hitting streak is up to nine games, a span in which he's gone 10-for-33 (.303). The rookie hasn't done a lot of running this year with seven steals in 11 attempts, and this was his first theft since Aug. 14. He's put together a solid campaign with a .274/.343/.448 slash line, 16 home runs, 48 RBI and 47 runs scored through 110 contests.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Casey Lawrence: Earns extra-innings win
Lawrence (1-0) allowed two walks and struck out one over two scoreless and hitless innings to earn the extra-innings win over the Padres on Saturday.
Lawrence got the ball in the 10th inning and stayed in for the 11th after the Cardinals pulled ahead. This was just his fourth scoreless appearance in 11 outings since he joined the Cardinals in mid-August, though he has been better in shorter assignments. Lawrence has a mediocre 5.64 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 17:10 K:BB through 22.1 innings while adding four holds.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Ryan Helsley: Blows save Saturday
Helsley allowed a run on three walks and struck out two over 1.1 innings, taking a blown save in Saturday's 5-2 extra-innings win over the Padres.
Helsley was called upon for a four-out save opportunity, but he faltered in a wild ninth inning. He threw 15 of 30 pitches for strikes and set a season high with three free passes. Helsley is now 12-for-17 in save chances this season while posting a 2.60 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 47:17 K:BB over 34.2 innings. He had pitched 8.1 scoreless innings and converted five saves since returning from a forearm injury before Saturday's sloppy outing.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Turns in short start Saturday
Woodford allowed a run on four hits and two walks while striking out one over 3.2 innings in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Padres in 11 innings. He didn't factor into the decision.
Woodford worked up to 78 pitches (46 strikes) and limited the damage to a Manny Machado RBI single in the first inning. This was Woodford's seventh start in 14 appearances, but his first major-league start since April, as shoulder injuries and stints in the bullpen and minors have kept him out of a starting role. He's now at a 5.09 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 29:21 K:BB through 46 innings this season. It's uncertain if Woodford will start again in 2023 -- he was filling in for Adam Wainwright, who could make his final career start at home versus the Reds next weekend.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jose Fermin: Sitting Saturday
Fermin isn't in the Cardinals' lineup Saturday against the Padres, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Fermin has gone 3-for-10 with a walk since assuming a starter role with Nolan Arenado (back) on the injured list. He'll get a breather Saturday as Irving Lopez starts at third base and bats eighth.... See More ... See Less
