Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez earns first win of the year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez worked six strong innings in St. Louis' 5-2 win over the Reds Saturday. Martinez allowed one run on three hits with four strikeouts in the outing.

His only mistake of the day came in the fifth inning when he allowed a lead off home run to Zack Cozart. He set the next three batters down in order. 

"He seems to have a pretty good feel for the changeup and the breaking ball, to kind of put a little more on, take a little off," manager Mike Matheny said to FOXSports.com. "That's something you don't necessarily teach. It's just a feel."

He will look to keep things rolling Friday against the Brewers.

Cardinals' Carlos Martinez strikes out eight vs. Reds
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez didn't factor into the decision in his first start of the season Sunday, surrendering two earned runs on four hits and two walks in six innings while striking out eight in his team's 7-5, 11-inning win over the Reds.

Martinez was making his second appearance of the season, as he was used in a relief capacity on Opening Night one week ago. He was mostly dominant in Sunday's start, though he did serve up solo home runs in the second and fifth innings.

Martinez is slated to face the Reds again Saturday.

Cardinals plan to limit innings for Michael Wacha, Carlos Martinez
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Since Michael Wacha had shoulder problems in 2014 and Carlos Martinez has never thrown more than 150 innings in his career, the Cardinals are expecting to limit both starting pitchers at some point this season, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“We have some numbers in mind, but not early on,” manager Mike Matheny said. “I think you’ve got to wait and see where things are leading. If they’re throwing high volume, we’ll worry about that down the road, and we can use the All-Star break or we can use some of our off days to change things. This isn’t something where we need to start holding them back now. I don’t think that’s a great idea. But we don’t need to push.”

Martinez has never thrown more than 120 1/3 innings in one season. General manager John Mozeliak indicated Martinez might be limited to around 150 innings this season.

“Getting in that range would be a fair question," he said.

Cubs, Cardinals postponed Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tuesday's game between the Cubs and Cardinals has been postponed due to the forecast of rain and sub-freezing wind chills throughout the evening, the Cubs announced.

A makeup date for Tuesday's postponement has yet to be scheduled, but it is likely to come in July or September rather than this week. Jake Arrieta and Lance Lynn were the scheduled starters for Tuesday's matchup.

Lynn has been named the starter for Wednesday's series finale against the Cubs. The Cardinals will keep the rotation in line moving forward, with John Lackey, Michael Wacha and Carlos Martinez on tap to face the Reds this weekend. Adam Wainwright is now scheduled to take the mound for the team's home opener Monday against the Brewers.
