Lance Lynn unable to pick up a win
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starter Lance Lynn picked up his first loss of the season Thursday against the Mets.

Lynn didn't pitch poorly, but was outdueled by Bartolo Colon. Over 6 1/3 innings, Lynn allowed two runs on four hits. He walked two batters and struck out nine. Lynn made three mistakes during the outing. He gave up a solo home run to Chris Young to open the bottom of the fifth, and allowed a run scoring double during the sixth. That second run was unearned, however, after Eric Young Jr. reached on a throwing error by Lynn.

Lynn was pulled after giving up a leadoff walk to begin the seventh. That run would come around to score, giving Lynn two earned runs during the outing.

Lynn dropped to 4-1, and will look for his fifth win against the Brewers.

Lance Lynn handcuffs Nationals for fourth win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starter Lance Lynn became the first four-game winner in the National League and remained unbeaten Saturday with a 4-3 win in Washington.

Lynn made it through just 5 2/3 innings, but gave up only one run on a Danny Espinosa home run in the fifth. He yielded five hits, walked three and fanned five.

The right-hander ran his scoreless streak to 15 innings before yielding the home run to Espinosa. He will try to earn his fifth victory Thursday against the Mets.

Take the good with the bad with Lance Lynn
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

You should never get too high or too low with Lance Lynn. When he underwhelmed in his first two starts, he was still Lance Lynn. When he struck out 11 in seven shutout innings, he was still Lance Lynn.

So who is Lance Lynn? He's shown exactly who over last two years: A hard-throwing, strikeout-per-inning type who pitches deep enough into games to pile up victories for a well-rounded Cardinals team but whose inconsistencies condemn him to a higher-than-average ERA and WHIP. Pretty simple.

And with that last start, his season-to-date numbers are pretty much spot on. It may not seem like it since he hasn't been that middle-of-the-road pitcher in any one of his three starts, but few players arrive at their final numbers through a series of alike performances.

In fact, Lynn takes the opposite route. After struggling in two of his first three starts last year, he compiled a 2.10 ERA over his next nine, followed by a 6.32 ERA over his next eight, followed by a 2.28 ERA over his next four, followed by a 7.57 ERA over his next five, followed by a 1.09 ERA over his final four. His 2012 season went much the same way.

What it means is he's more valuable in Rotisserie leagues than Head-to-Head, where you care more about the end result than the step by step. It also means you might consider selling high on him if he strings together a few more of these starts.

Lance Lynn moves to 3-0 with gem Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn was remarkable in his team's 4-0 win over the Brewers Monday, giving up just three hits and three walks in seven scoreless innings while striking out 11.

Lynn (3-0) was fortunate to pick up a win in his previous start after giving up five runs in six innings, but that wasn't the case Monday, as he was able to work around three free passes and two doubles while throwing 114 pitches. He owns a 4.00 ERA and 22:4 K:BB ratio in 18 innings through three starts. Lynn is slated to face the Nationals on the road Saturday.
