News
Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller turned in a strong start Friday against the Cubs.

Miller allowed two runs on four hits over seven innings. He struck out three and walked two during the outing. Home runs proved to be the main issue for Miller. In the second, he allowed a solo shot against Luis Valbuena. He was able to settle in over the next four innings, not allowing a run. That streak was erased in the seventh, when Jorge Soler led off the inning with a solo blast. Miller wound up throwing 93 pitches during the outing. 

Miller left with the game tied, picking up the no-decision. He’ll take on the Pirates in his next start.

News
As expected, Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina is back in the lineup Friday for the first time since July, after he was activated from the disabled list.

Molina recovered more quickly than expected from thumb surgery, but could be eased back into action of the next week or so while he gets his footing again. Molina was hitting .287/.341/.409 in 303 at-bats prior to the injury.

Neck - Questionable for Sept. 2 vs. Pittsburgh (Updated - 9/1/14)
News
Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong slugged a two-run pinch-hit home run in Monday's 5-4 win over the Pirates.

Wong was cleared of a concussion before the game, but manager Mike Matheny didn't immediately stick him back in the lineup. That left Wong the opportunity to provide the go-ahead run in the seventh inning, and the bullpen locked down the final six outs to hand the Cardinals a win.

"My neck was killing me today," Wong told MLB.com after the game. "But there comes certain points in time when you have to man up. Today was definitely one of those days where I told myself I just needed to man up and put a good at-bat together."

Wong has hit .252/.293/.404 with 11 home runs, 37 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 337 at-bats.

News
Cardinals outfielder Shane Robinson underwent season-ending surgery on his left shoulder Thursday, the team announced.

Robinson hit the DL earlier this week due to a left shoulder subluxation, and will not be able to return. He hit just .150/.227/.200 in a part-time role with the Cardinals this season, and should be healthy in time for the start of spring training.

News
After going 0 for 4 in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs, Cardinals veteran outfielder Matt Holliday bounced back in a big way in the second game, homering twice in a 13-2 rout. Holliday finished 2 for 3 with five RBI and one walk in the win.

Holliday gave St. Louis a 4-1 lead when he hit a three-run homer off Tsuyoshi Wada in the bottom of the fifth inning. He then led off the bottom of the eighth inning with a solo home run. Holliday got up again during a nine-run eighth inning and tallied his last RBI on a bases-loaded hit by pitch with still no outs in the inning.

Holliday has been on a nice run over the last few weeks, hitting safely in 11 of 12 games. He is batting .298 with a .553 slugging percentage, .942 OPS, three doubles, three home runs, seven runs and 15 RBI in that span.

Injuries
Shoulder - 15-day DL. On Double-A rehab assignment (Updated - 8/31/14)
News
The Cardinals remain undecided on whether to have pitcher Michael Wacha make another rehab appearance during the Triple-A playoffs or rejoin the Cardinals, MLB.com reports.

Wacha threw 34 pitches in his rehab start with Double-A Springfield Monday, giving up one hit and one walk during two scoreless innings. "Very good," manager Mike Matheny said of Wacha. "He had good velocity, was efficient, got quick outs and located everything well."

If Wacha were to pitch with the Cardinals later in the week, he would be on a limited pitch count as he continues to rebuild arm strength. The pitcher has been sidelined since June 17 with a shoulder issue.

News
The return of Yadier Molina from a thumb injury is unlikely to force the Cardinals to part ways with his replacement, A.J. Pierzynski, reports FOXSports.com.

The Cardinals are expected to work Molina back in slowly when he makes his expected return to the lineup Friday, which should still leave time for Pierzynski to play. The fact that rosters expand in a few days should help Pierzynski's chances, since the team will be able to carry three catchers.

Pierzynski has appeared in 21 games since joining the Cardinals, hitting .265/.324/.338 in 68 at-bats.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny didn't commit to Justin Masterson making his next start Thursday against the Brewers. In fact, he hinted Marco Gonzales and Tyler Lyons could be the leading candidates to start Thursday, per MLB.com.

"(Marco is) a possibility. Tyler (is) a possibility. Justin's a possibility. We'll see," Matheny said. "We've talked a lot about this stuff. It just hasn't been talked about with everybody else, and this isn't the time or place to start making those statements. We just want to put the guy out there that's going to give us the best chance to win. It's going to be how it matches up with other teams and how they look. We'll be willing to make that statement soon, just not right now."

Cardinals pitcher Seth Maness retired the only batter he faced Monday, tossing two-thirds of a scoreless inning to pick up the win in his team's 5-4 victory over the Pirates.

Maness (6-3) entered the game with a man on first but watched the runner get caught attempting to steal second base. He then recorded a groundball out to end the seventh inning before the offense took the lead in the next frame. Maness owns a 3.03 ERA and 46:10 K:BB ratio in 68 1/3 innings.
