Cards' Mike Matheny, John Lackey clear the air after Monday's outing
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny and pitcher John Lackey cleared any tension that lingered over from Monday's seven-inning outing, per MLB.com.

Lackey, who spent 12-plus years in the American League before making his National League debut this season, was visibly frustrated after he was pulled out in favor of a pinch hitter in the eighth inning after tossing only 76 pitches because the team down a run with six outs remaining.

"You hate to ever insult a guy and give him the obvious [explanation that he can't hit], but it is obviously different," Matheny said. "I would say if that was an American League game that I'd be hoping he was still pitching in the 14th. But it wasn't. And we have to do what's best for everybody."

Lackey told reporters that he understands Matheny's decision to pull him out, though he wasn't pleased with it during the game.

"He gets where I'm coming from," Lackey said. "I get where he's coming from. Everything is fine. ... If Peter [Bourjos] gets on base, he can steal two bags. If I get on base, what the [heck] am I going to do? Stand there?"

Cardinals pitcher John Lackey strikes out six in ND
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher John Lackey allowed one run on three hits in seven innings of work in St. Louis' 2-1 loss to the Mets in 14 innings on Monday, but did not factor into the decision.

Lackey had just one blemish on his outing. He allowed a leadoff double to Curtis Granderson. Then, after a groundout advanced him to third, Lackey allowed an RBI single to Lucas Duda. Lackey struck out six and did not surrender a walk in the contest.

"You couldn't ask any more from anybody," manager Mike Matheny said, per MLB.com. "He was good. He had life on the fastball. He was spotting right from the start, just making good pitches and making them come to him. He was not making mistakes. The only blemish there was we had an opportunity to kind of get around Duda, and he ends up making us pay. It's unfortunate."

Lackey, who remains 2-2, lowered his ERA to 2.96 in 51 2/3 innings of work. He will look to get back in the win column on Saturday against the Royals.

Cardinals pitcher John Lackey has rough outing Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher John Lackey allowed two runs on five hits in 5 1/3 innings of work in St. Louis' 2-0 loss to the Indians on Wednesday.

Lackey struggled in the first inning when he walked the first two batters he faced. Then Brandon Moss singled in a run. Then, David Murphy singled home another run. Lackey totaled five walks and just two strikeouts in the start.

Lackey, now 2-2, moved his ERA to 3.22 in 44 2/3 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Monday against the Mets.

Cardinals mull six-man rotation, prefer Garcia to Gonzales
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals are considering moving to a six-man rotation to help battle the loss of ace Adam Wainwright, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"It’s not something we would rule out," general manager John Mozeliak said Saturday. "It’s something we’ve talked about, but we haven’t decided if that’s the best option for us. It’s something I think a lot about, and I know (manager) Mike (Matheny) and (pitching coach Derek Lilliquist) do too. It’s on the table."

With Michael Wacha and Carlos Martinez not being ticketed for 200-inning seasons, the team is considering whether to roll out a six-man rotation or to go with a five-man rotation and periodically skip starts of the two younger pitchers while giving others spot starts in their place. However, a six-man rotation could throw off the routines of Lance Lynn and John Lackey. If the team does opt for a five-man rotation, Jaime Garcia is the preferred long-term option over Marco Gonzales.

"If Jaime is good to go, we’ll try to find a spot in the rotation for him," Mozeliak said. "When he’s been healthy, Jaime has been a very good pitcher."

Garcia is set to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis Sunday.

Cardinals RHP John Lackey overwhelms Cubs
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Most 36-year-old starting pitchers have slowed considerably or retired. Cardinals right-hander John Lackey appears to be getting better with age.

He showed that again Thursday afternoon by shutting down the Cubs. Lackey allowed just one run on five hits in 7 2/3 innings while walking one and striking out a season-high 10, his highest total since July 5.

"I feel like it's kind of been building the last couple starts," Lackey said, via MLB.com. "[Thursday] was probably the best I've felt so far."

Lackey lost his shutout on a Starlin Castro single in the seventh.

"I'd like to finish them all," Lackey said. "Every time I pitch, I like to go deep. There might have been a little more importance with it today because of usage."

He has yielded just five earned runs in his last 20 2/3 innings in lowering his ERA to 3.20. He will try to shrink it further Wednesday in Cleveland.
