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 infielder Kolten Wong is back in the lineup Monday against the Mets, after sitting out the team's previous two games. Veteran Mark Ellis started in Wong's place, and manager Mike Matheny told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Monday Ellis' track record plays a part in why he keeps turning his way.

"We have a known quantity in Mark Ellis," Matheny said. "When he's going right and we can fit him in there and the matchup looks good, it's an easy day to give to him. Kolten is one of those great expectations-type players. He's shown so much of what he can do. We have to take advantage of days when he doesn't look right so we don’t just beat him up."

Wong has struggled to open the season, hitting just .237/.297/.288, though he has appeared in 17 of the team's 20 games so far.

Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal struggled a bit with his control Tuesday, but still picked up his sixth same in as many opportunities in a 3-0 win over the Mets.  

Rosenthal put two runners on via walk, bringing the tying run up with one out. He was able to get himself out of the jam without much trouble, retiring the next two hitters in a row in order to finish the outing, despite throwing just eight of 18 pitches for strikes.

Rosenthal's season has been a bit bump through the first few weeks, though he has yet to blow a save. He carries a 6.10 ERA in 10 1/3 innings of work, with 11 strikeouts to six walks.

News
Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha was dominant at times Wednesday against the Mets, but ultimately couldn't corral himself in a 3-2 loss.

Wacha struck out nine batters in his firs three innings of work, and avoided any major damage despite allowing a baserunner in each frame. Unfortunately, early warning signs did not go away, and he melted down in the fourth. He was charged with two runs on two hits and three walks in the fourth inning, his final frame of work.

Wacha struck out 10 in four innings, but also threw 93 pitches thanks to five walks and three hits.  He was charged with two runs as he took the loss, dropping his record to 2-2 through five starts.

Wacha has now dropped consecutive decisions, despite allowing just three earned runs in 11 innings of work. He will try to get back on track in his next start, Monday against the Brewers.

News
Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos was out of the lineup for the third time in four games  Tuesday against the Mets, as manager Mike Matheny continues to look for a way to spark the offense. Jon Jay replaced Bourjos at center field Tuesday, though Matheny isn't giving up on the punch-less Bourjos.

"I'm trying to get the guys in there that are taking good at-bats," Matheny said. "Peter Bourjos is going to get opportunities. Right now, we've got to get something going."

Bourjos is hitting just .190 with a .261 on-base percentage this season, while spending much of the season batting eighth in the lineup. Still, Matheny believes his approach should lead to good things before long.

"I'm just trying to find his swing, like about half our lineup," Matheny said. "He's got the right approach. He's trying to stay through the ball. He's just finding himself in deep counts and trying to hit tough pitches. It doesn't usually work out for anybody."

Knee - Questionable for April 27 vs. Pittsburgh (Updated - 4/22/14)
News
Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said starting pitcher Adam Wainwright passed strength and mobility tests after leaving Tuesday's start against the Mets with a hyperextended right knee, per FOX Sports Midwest.

"He may be sore for a day or two but we'll find out more (Wednesday)," Matheny said.

Wainwright said he expects to make his next scheduled start Sunday against the Pirates.

"At first you get a little scared, but as I started walking off the field I knew I hadn't done anything wrong," Wainwright told reporters. "All is good."

Cardinals pitcher Tyler Lyons did a solid job in his first start in replacement of Joe Kelly Monday, giving up two earned runs on on six hits and four walks in six innings while striking out seven in his team's 2-0 loss to the Mets.

Lyons (0-1) posted a 3.32 ERA and 18:5 K:BB ratio in 19 innings over three starts with Triple-A Memphis before being brought up to fill a hole in the rotation, and while he struggled with his control, he was able to lock down a quality start in his regular-season debut depite being saddled with the loss. He'll take on the Pirates at home Saturday.
