News
Cardinals starting pitcher Shelby Miller was in line for a second straight win Sunday, but the bullpen couldn't hold a two-run lead as the Nationals rallied for a 3-2 win.

Miller had some control issues Sunday, walking a season-high five batters. However, he was able to work out of trouble most of the afternoon, as he tossed 5 1/3 scoreless innings. He allowed four hits and struck out seven.

Miller walked the bases loaded in the third inning, but escaped the jam by getting Adam LaRoche to strike out. Miller allowed a pair of two-out singles in the fourth inning, but got out of trouble by striking out Stephen Strasburg. He was finally lifted after allowing a one-out walk to Danny Espinosa and a one-out single to Jose Lobaton in the sixth inning.

Miller was able to lower his ERA from 4.67 to 3.57 in the no-decision. Miller will be back on the hill Friday against the Pirates. He lost in his first start against Pittsburgh April 4, allowing five earned runs in 5 1/3 innings.

News
Cardinals outfielder Jon Jay has started three of the last four games in center, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The club brought in Peter Bourjos in the offseason, but he hasn't produced to open the season. Manager Mike Matheny said Jay has been playing well enough to warrant more playing time. "Jon had four quality at-bats (Wednesday)," Matheny said. "It’s a good day for him to keep that swing going."

Jay is hitting .250 in 28 at-bats.

News
Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha pitched well yet again Friday against the Nationals, but got little help in his first loss of the season.

Wacha pitched seven strong innings, and definitely gave his team a chance to win, allowing just one earned run on an early home run. Unfortunately, two unearned runs came around to score in the second, on a wild pitch and then throwing error, and that was enough to cost the Cardinals the game, 3-1.

Wacha struck out seven batters and walked none, his first start without a free pass. He allowed his one earned run on five hits, while watching his record fall to 2-1. He carries a 1.73 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Wednesday against the Mets.

News
The Cardinals are not considered moving pitcher Carlos Martinez from the bullpen to the rotation, despite losing Joe Kelly to a hamstring injury that landed him on the disabled list Thursday, according to MLB.com.

"You'd be looking at stretching him out just to slow him back down again," Matheny said. "This is one of those scenarios where we just don't know how long it's going to be [for Kelly]. It's not set in stone, and I think you take that risk of pulling [Martinez] out, getting him going just to slow him back down if things [with Kelly] progress quickly."

According to the report, the team prefers to pick a starter from the Triple-A squad in Memphis, rather than move Carlos Martinez into a starting role for a few spot starts. Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney are both mentioned as possible options for the spot.

Martinez has a 1.86 ERA in 9 2/3 innings of the bullpen, and has yet to throw more than 31 pitches in any outing.

News
Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright twirled a gem Thursday against the Nationals, in an 8-0 win.

Wainwright tossed his first complete-game shutout of the season in the win, and was barely in trouble at all. He surrendered just two hits, both singles, while also walking three batters. He struck out eight batters for the second start in a row as well.

Wainwright has been his typically brilliant self through four starts, holding a 3-1 record and 1.80 ERA in 30 innings of work. He has struck out 32 batters while walking nine heading into his next start, scheduled for Tuesday against the Mets.
