    • Martinez (10-6) allowed two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out three over five innings to earn the win Tuesday at the Mets. Martinez was staked to a three-run lead before giving up a two-run homer to Rene Rivera, leaving the game with a 3-2 lead that the bullpen was able to hold onto. He's now held opponents to two or fewer earned runs in seven of his last eight starts, and he has a 2.87 ERA to go along with the 1.16 WHIP. He'll make his next start Sunday at the Marlins.

    • Martinez has had his scheduled start Monday postponed due to weather, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Martinez will start in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader as a result of this postponement with Jamie Garcia throwing in Game 2. Saturday was the next scheduled start for Martinez, and it is unclear at the moment how the Cardinals will opt to shuffle their rotation to adjust for this situation.

    • Martinez (8-6) allowed one run on four hits and four walks while striking out 11 over five innings to earn the win Saturday at the Brewers. Martinez threw 103 pitches, leading to his removal after five innings, and the Cardinals' offense gave him plenty of support to help him win his eighth game of the year. Going into this contest, eight was his highest strikeout total of 2016, and he has now fanned 91 batters on the season. He'll make his next start after the All-Star break.

Martinez gave up another run on a two-out single the next frame. He is 7-6 with a 2.90 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 80 strikeouts in 102.1 innings this season.
