    Cardinals' Lance Lynn doesn't allow a run in second straight start

    Cardinals starter Lance Lynn went five scoreless innings en route to a no-decision Monday, allowing four hits while walking four and striking out six in a 3-0 victory over the Pirates. Lynn has quelled concerns of late-season fatigue by tossing 11 scoreless innings in his last two outings. The right-hander pitched out of trouble in the third inning, stranding the bases loaded with one out by retiring Starling Marte and Neil Walker. Lynn's four walks contributed to a high pitch count given his five-inning performance; the 28-year-old has not exceeded six innings in the month of September. On his final start of the regular season, Lynn will take on the Braves at Turner Field on Sunday.

    Cardinals SP Lance Lynn throws six scoreless innings in win

    Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn (12-10) went six shutout innings Wednesday, allowing four hits while walking none and striking out four in a 10-2 drubbing of the Reds. Lynn departed at 89 pitches, having been staked to a comfortable 6-0 lead by the end of the fifth inning. Wednesday's excellent start ends a string of poor performances from Lynn, who had pitched to a 9.26 ERA in his last three outings. As the Cardinals advance their lead in the NL Central, look for Lynn to see an innings decrease in anticipation of the playoffs.

    Cardinals SP Lance Lynn suffers rough outing Friday

    Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn allowed three runs on four hits, walking six and striking out two over 3.1 innings, but came away with a no-decision in the Cardinals 8-3 loss to the Cubs on Friday afternoon. Another poor performance from Lynn who has struggled as the season winds down. He has now walked 27 in 43 innings since the beginning of August and may simply be out of gas. He has a history of wearing down later in the year, and it wouldn't be surprising if we see the Cardinals try to limit his workload over the final days prior to the playoffs.

    Cardinals' Lance Lynn gives up big three-run home run in loss

    Cardinals starter Lance Lynn rebounded from a dreadful effort his last time out to post a quality start against the Reds on Saturday. Lynn held the Reds to three runs on four hits over six innings. He walked three and struck out three and pitched very well for much of the game. He held a 1-0 lead heading into the fifth inning. But he served up a three-run home run to former Cardinal, Skip Schumaker. The Cardinals went on to the 5-1 loss. Lynn (11-10, 3.17 ERA) was rocked for six runs in 2 1/3 innings in his previous start, so this was a sure sign of relief for the Cardinals.

    Ankle issue has Cardinals SP Lance Lynn scratched Friday

    Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn will not be a starting pitcher this weekend as first planned. He has been skipped in the rotation due to a mild ankle sprain, per KMOV. Lynn had been scheduled to pitch Friday in the opener of a key series against Pittsburgh. The right-hander is coming off one of his finest performances of the season when he tossed seven shutout innings in San Francisco. His injury is not considered serious, so he appears likely to pitch against the Cubs in another important set next week.
