Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Monday that Trevor Rosenthal "is still our closer."
Rosenthal has been shaky all October, allowing seven hits and three walks in 3 2/3 innings this postseason, but Matheny is sticking with the 24-year-old. He will likely continue to have a quick hook, though, like he did in removing Rosenthal during the ninth inning of Sunday's Game 2. Pat Neshek and Carlos Martinez have both looked more capable in these playoffs, and either would be a candidate to close games should Rosenthal continue to stumble. Mon, Oct 13, 2014 06:10:00 PM

Trevor Rosenthal suffered a blown save in Game 2 of the NLCS against the Giants on Sunday, surrendering a run on a wild pitch with two outs in the ninth inning.

After allowing a pair of one-out singles, the Cardinals were one out away from securing a victory and heading to San Francisco with the series tied at a game apiece until Matt Duffy scooted home on a wild pitch to tie the game with two outs in the ninth. He then issued a walk to Buster Posey to reload the bases before being pulled in favor of Seth Maness. He has now allowed seven hits and issued three walks in 3 2/3 innings on the postseason and looks to be a liability in the ninth inning at the moment.

Trevor Rosenthal made it interesting again but ultimately escaped with a scoreless inning and a save in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers.

Rosenthal issued a one-out walk to A.J. Ellis and allowed a two-out single to Dee Gordon as he tried to protect a one-run lead. He was then able to get Carl Crawford to ground into a fielder's choice to end it. The flamethrower made things interesting each time but wound up converting a save in all three of the Cardinals' NLDS wins.

Trevor Rosenthal allowed a couple hits but buckled down to record the save in Monday's win over the Dodgers.

Just as it was in his save in Game 1 of the NLDS, tonight's didn't come easy. After striking out Matt Kemp to lead off the ninth, Rosenthal allowed singles to Hanley Ramirez and Carl Crawford. He then rebounded, though, getting Juan Uribe and A.J. Ellis to fly out to preserve the two-run victory.

Trevor Rosenthal made things interesting, but managed to close out the Dodgers in a wild Game 1 of the National League Division Series on Friday in Los Angeles.

Rosenthal didn’t make things easy, allowing a one-out single to A.J. Ellis and a double to Andre Ethier before getting Dee Gordon on a run-scoring groundout. Then, with the tying run only 90 feet away, he was able to strike out Yasiel Puig to end the ballgame.

Trevor Rosenthal was pulled from a save chance Friday against the Reds.

After inheriting a 2-1 lead, Rosenthal walked Todd Frazier to begin the top of the ninth before getting Devin Mesoraco to strikeout swinging. He then gave up a single to Brandon Phillips before Cardinals manager Mike Matheny pulled him in favor of Randy Choate, who struck out Jay Bruce swinging. Matheny then brought in Seth Maness to get Ryan Ludwick to fly out to lock down the victory. Rosenthal figures to get the next save opportunity, but the Matheny clearly isn't afraid to go in another direction depending on the situation.

Trevor Rosenthal allowed a run on a hit and two walks Tuesday, suffering the blown save against the Brewers.

Rosenthal was erratic from the start, walking Jonathan Lucroy before allowing a double by Aramis Ramirez on a hanging changeup. He wouldn't allow another hit in the inning, sandwiching an intentional walk between three outs, but a sacrifice fly from Matt Clark tied the game and saddled Rosenthal with his sixth blown save of the year. It was mild as far as blown saves go, but it was disappointing after Rosenthal appeared to be in command while earning his 44th save Sunday. Still, he's the guy in the ninth inning for the Cardinals from here out, for better or worse.

Trevor Rosenthal struck out the side in the ninth inning Sunday, earning the save against the Rockies.

Rosenthal looked as good as he has all season in the save, hitting triple digits on the radar gun and finishing off Charlie Blackmon with a changeup to end the game. Rosenthal has 44 saves on the year to go with a 3.22 ERA and 85/39 K/BB ratio over 67 innings this year.

Trevor Rosenthal moved back into a tie for the major league lead in saves at 42 after pitching a scoreless ninth inning in Thursday's victory over the Brewers.

It wasn't without drama, as Rosenthal issued a one-out walk and later issued a two-out walk, putting the tying run in scoring position. Jason Rogers flied out to end the game. Rosenthal is now 42-for-47 in save opportunities with a 3.38 ERA and a 79/39 K/BB ratio.

Trevor Rosenthal picked up his 39th save despite giving up an Andrew McCutchen solo homer Monday against the Pirates.

Rosenthal has been living dangerously pretty much all year long, but the big reason he's been able to keep his job anyway is that he hasn't given up the longball; just one in 59 innings prior to tonight. He's now given up runs in four of his last six appearances.

Trevor Rosenthal earned his 38th save of the year Saturday in the Cardinals' 6-5 defeat of the Phillies.

It was the cleanest inning for Rosenthal in a while. He retired all three batters he faced in the bottom of the 12th -- one via flyout, one via strikeout, and one via foul pop-out. Rosenthal has been pretty shaky all year, sporting a 3.51 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 59 total innings, but the 24-year-old right-hander is tied with Craig Kimbrel and Francisco Rodriguez for the National League lead in saves. St. Louis is a half-game back of Milwaukee for the NL Central division lead.

Trevor Rosenthal was needed in an emergency in the ninth inning and extinguished a fire, recording his 37th save in the process as the Cardinals escaped with a victory over the Reds on Wednesday.

The Cardinals entered the ninth inning with a seven-run lead, but Carlos Martinez allowed three runs to score on three singles, a double, and a pair of fielding errors by his teammates. Rosenthal entered with runners on second and third and one out. He was able to get Billy Hamilton to ground out, but walked Jay Bruce to bring the tying run to the plate. Cardinals fans exhaled when Todd Frazier grounded out to end the game. Rosenthal is now 37-for-42 in save chances with a 3.57 ERA and a 74/35 K/BB ratio.

Trevor Rosenthal blew his fifth save of the season, but the Cardinals were able to come back and win in 10 innings against the Reds on Monday.

Rosenthal has allowed runs in each of his past three appearances, ending what had been a solid run of pitching following a shaky month and a half to begin the season. The right-hander made the mistake of walking Billy Hamilton, who wreaked havoc on the basepaths and scored on Jay Bruce's double. Rosenthal is now 36-for-41 in save opportunities with a 3.61 ERA and a 74/34 K/BB ratio.

Trevor Rosenthal walked three of the four batters he faced in a save situation Sunday against the Padres.

Rosenthal was called on in the top of the ninth inning to protect a 7-4 lead but couldn't get the job done. He walked Will Venable, walked Alexi Amarista, and then got a friendly call on a strikeout of Rymer Liriano. A walk to Yangervis Solarte followed and then Cardinals manager Mike Matheny finally pulled him. Seth Maness gave up a two-run single to the next batter, Abraham Almonte, but then rallied to record the final two outs. It's time to stash Pat Neshek in all mixed fantasy leagues. Matheny said after the game that he is sticking with Rosenthal for now, but the young right-hander has been flirting with danger all season.

Trevor Rosenthal had his feet to the fire, but narrowly escaped with his 36th save in Thursday's win over the Padres.

Rosenthal entered the ninth inning with a two-run lead and proceeded to allow three hits and two walks. The Padres only managed to push across one run, however, and Rosenthal was able to strike out Tommy Medica to end the game. Rosenthal has been much better in recent months following a tough start to the year. He's 36-for-40 in save chances with a 3.21 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and a 72/30 K/BB ratio.
