News
It seems whatever the Cardinals touch these days turns to gold. Just consider the performance of reserve first baseman Xavier Sruggs on Saturday.

Scruggs, who can be in line for increased usage, entered with just 12 at-bats this season. He left with 16 - and a .500 average. That came courtesy of a 3-for-4 performance against the Cubs in which he scored twice and drove in two more.

The rookie was quite active in an eight-run explosion over the fourth and fifth innings with an RBI single, run-scoring double and two runs.

In his 19th career big-league game, Cardinals infielder Greg Garcia launched his first Major League home run on Friday night. Garcia's solo shot in the eighth inning tied the game at 2-2, as the Cardinals beat the Cubs 3-2 in 10 innings. 

Garcia came on as a pinch-hitter in the eighth and slugged the game-tying long ball off Pedro Strop. 

The former seventh-round draft pick just made his season-debut last Friday, but already has five hits in nine at-bats this season.

News
Cardinals standout starter Michael Wacha doesn't generally require much run support to win. But what the heck - his offense gave him plenty anyway Saturday against the Cubs.

The game started out taut, but St. Louis scored four in the fourth and four more in the fifth to allow Wacha to cruise to his 10th victory, which is tied for second in the majors.

The onslaught allowed Wacha to depart after six inning and 91 pitches. He allowed one run on six hits with two walks and five strikeouts. He actually fell behind 1-0 on an RBI single by opposing pitcher Donn Roach in the second inning.

The fine outing continued a period of inconsistency for Wacha, who has traded excellent outings with mediocre ones over the past month.

He now boasts a .324 on-base percentage that is at its peak since April 10.

News
Carlos Villanueva really knows how to rub it in. Not only has he performed far better this season for the Cardinals than he ever did for the Cubs, but he shut down the Windy City boys on Saturday.

Villanueva earned the save with three shutout innings in which he allowed just one hit. He walked two and fanned three along the way to preserve the 8-1 victory and lower his ERA to 1.17, more than three points lower than what he achieved mostly out of the bullpen for the Cubs.

He allowed one baserunner in each inning, but escaped unscathed and allowed closer Trevor Rosenthal to rest.

Injuries
Achilles, ankle - 60-day DL. Out for season (Updated - 4/30/15)
News
The Cardinals boast a 98.9 percent chance of making the playoffs, according to FanGraphs. And shelved starter Adam Wainwright could be pitching in those playoffs, according to Adam Wainwright.

The top-flight righty jas been out since tearing his Achilles tendon in late April. It's an injury that generally requires 9-12 months to rehab. The fruition of his hope would mean a six-month recovery, but he's still hanging on to it.

"I'll do whatever it takes to pitch in October, he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "That's the deal."

Wainwright is speaking as a pitcher who has not experienced the pain common to other injuries. And that has been encouraging.

"I feel completely normal at all times," he said. "It's a really strange injury ... as far as pain is concerned. I have had zero pain the entire process and each day my range of motion is getting better and better. My strength is better and my poor, little, tired, sad calf in my left leg is starting to get some strength back."

The loss of Wainwright has not proven devastating for the St. Louis staff, which still boasts the best ERA in the majors. That is a good thing because it has put the team in position for another playoff run in which he feels he can participate. But it's a bad thing because it doesn't make him feel particularly good about himself.

"They even got better without me," he said. "It makes me feel kind of worthless, to be honest with you."

News
Cardinals starting pitcher Carlos Martinez picked up his ninth win of the season on Sunday against the Cubs.

Martinez threw six innings, allowed just two hits and one earned run in a game that featured multiple rain delays. He struck out six batters and walked another three.

Martinez (9-3) has a 2.80 ERA with 100 strikeouts and 39 walks in 93 1/3 innings this season.

Cardinals right-hander John Lackey limited the Cubs to two runs on eight hits over seven innings on Friday, but took a no-decision in the extra-innings victory. Lackey walked three and struck out five, as he danced in-and-out of danger all night with baserunners on in all but two of his innings Friday night. 

Still, the performance lowered his ERA to 3.35, as he has allowed more than three earned runs just once in his last 12 starts.
