Adam Wainwright rebounded from a poor outing his last time out to hold the Cubs scoreless for seven innings in the Cardinals' 1-0 win on Sunday.

Wainwright allowed six runs -- four earned -- over 4 2/3 innings against the Rays earlier in the week, but he stymied the Cubs all afternoon for his NL-best 13th victory. Wainwright wasn't perfect, as he walked three while giving up five hits, but he made pitches when he needed to. The right-hander has a 1.92 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 122/34 K/BB ratio over 149 2/3 innings this year. He'll take on the division-leading Brewers on Saturday.

Matt Carpenter went 3-for-4 in a win over the Cubs on Sunday.

The three-hit afternoon was his second three-hit game in his last three starts, and Carpenter is 9-for-21 with five runs scored in his last five games. The good stretch has run his line to .284/.377/.392. The leadoff hitter is a strong bet to finish among the NL leaders in runs scored for a second straight year.

Trevor Rosenthal pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Cubs on Sunday to earn his 32nd save.

Rosenthal allowed a two-out single to Chris Coghlan but struck out Welington Castillo to end it, the second straight game Castillo was Rosenthal's game-ending strikeout victim. His 32 saves are most in the majors, and he's allowed just one run in his last eight appearances to lower his ERA to 3.33.

Matt Holliday finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

Holliday's blast was the only run either side mustered in the game. He's now got three homers in his last five games and has four since the All-Star break. It was just a matter of time before Holliday's line drives started leaving the park, and now that he's found his home run swing they should continue to come for the next two months.

A.J. Pierzynski went 3-for-4 in his Cardinals debut on Saturday afternoon at Wrigley Field, playing a big role in a 6-3 win over the rival Cubs.

Pierzynski grounded out in his first at-bat but singled in the next three, driving home an important insurance run in the Cards' four-run seventh inning. He was not hitting well in Boston, but the 37-year-old catcher has good career offensive numbers and is going to get semi-regular playing time in St. Louis while Yadier Molina (thumb) is out. Pierzynski is relevant again in deep mixed fantasy leagues.
Jul 26 - 7:35 PM

Shelby Miller allowed only two runs over 5 2/3 innings Saturday in the Cardinals' win over the Cubs.

Miller looked much sharper after spending a week-plus in the St. Louis bullpen, surrendering only three hits in front of a very pro-Cardinals crowd at Wrigley Field. He did not walk a batter and struck out three. The young right-hander will try to build off this positive outing in his next start at home versus Milwaukee.
Jul 26 - 7:31 PM

A.J. Pierzynski is in the Cardinals starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs.

He's hitting sixth in the lineup for his Cardinals debut. While he's a shell of his former self, as long as he's receiving regular playing time behind the dish in St. Louis, he's fantasy-relevant again in two-catcher formats.
Jul 26 - 12:39 PM

Cardinals signed C A.J. Pierzynski.

Pierzynski will be active and in uniform for Saturday's game against the Cubs. The 37-year-old catcher was hitting .254/.286/.348 with four homers over 72 games before being cut loose by the Red Sox.
Jul 26 - 11:47 AM

Cardinals designated C George Kottaras for assignment.

The veteran backstop became expendable with Friday's acquisition of A.J. Pierzynski. He appeared in just four games during his brief stay in St. Louis. He shouldn't have much difficulty finding another organization willing to take a shot on him.
Jul 26 - 11:18 AM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Cardinals have reached an agreement with free agent catcher A.J. Pierzynski.

The veteran backstop is already in Chicago and will join the team before Saturday's game. His arrival likely signals the end of George Kottaras' brief time with the Cardinals. Pierzynski should see the bulk of the playing time behind the plate, and is certainly worth a look in deep two-catcher mixed leagues.
Jul 25 - 9:53 PM

According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, the Cardinals are in the process of signing free agent catcher A.J. Pierzynski.

Pierzynski was cut loose by the Red Sox on July 16 after the 37-year-old backstop struggled to the tune of .254/.286/.348 with four homers through his first 72 games. With Yadier Molina on the shelf, he represents a definite upgrade for the Cardinals over George Kottaras and Tony Cruz.
Jul 25 - 9:39 PM

Matt Holliday had three hits, including his ninth home run of the season on Friday, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Holliday connected on a solo blast off Travis Wood in the fifth inning, knotting the score at 5-5. With the three-hit effort, he’s now hitting .269/.374/.414 with the nine homers, 52 RBI and a pair of stolen bases on the season.
Jul 25 - 7:54 PM

Matt Carpenter went 3-for-5 and belted a solo home run in a losing effort against the Cubs on Friday afternoon.

Carpenter’s solo shot off Travis Wood in the fifth inning was his sixth homer of the season. He’s enjoying another very solid season atop the Cardinals lineup, slashing .282/.375/.393 with 65 runs scored and 36 RBI.
Jul 25 - 7:54 PM

Joe Kelly was hit hard in Friday’s no-decision against the Cubs, allowing five runs on eight hits over just 4 2/3 frames.

The right-hander struck out four and walked two on the afternoon. Most of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Ryan Sweeney blasting a three-run homer in the second inning and opposing starter Travis Wood connecting on a solo shot in the fourth. He’ll look to get back on track when he does battle against the Padres in San Diego on Thursday.
Jul 25 - 7:53 PM

Cardinals prospect right-hander Alex Reyes struck out five batters over six innings for Low-A Peoria on Wednesday, allowing three hits, two walks, and one run.

Two of the three hits were doubles, and hitters have a .205/.328/.305 off Reyes for the season. He has the potential to be a frontline pitcher, but his below-average command could prevent him from reaching his ceiling. He has a 5.7 BB/9 for the season, but has dominated Low-A hitters and his WHIP is only 1.382. Reyes won't turn 20 until the end of August, and will likely spend the rest of the season in the Midwest League.
