News
Cardinals setup-man Jordan Walden came on in the closer's role Sunday and threw a scoreless ninth inning against the Reds to collect his first save of the season.

"There's nothing like it," Walden said of pitching the ninth after the game, per MLB.com. "The mindset, you try not to [have it] be [different than another inning]. But the ninth inning is the ninth inning. The fans get into it more. Everybody is ready. You just want to finish the game. Adam [Wainwright] pitched a great game. I just wanted to get him the win."

Trevor Rosenthal, the regular closer for the Cardinals, needed 20 pitches on Saturday to record the save and was not used in Sunday's game.

Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia faced live hitters on Friday for the first time since March 24. Garcia, who has battled shoulder inflammation, pitched batting practice. 

Garcia said he "felt good" after the session, per MLB.com, but GM John Mozeliak said he's likely six weeks away from rejoining the team. Mozeliak compared the session to one a pitcher would throw in the second week of spring training. 

Mozeliak said the Cardinals are still looking at Garcia as a starter, once he returns to the team.

The Cardinals have placed outfielder Randal Grichuck on the 15-day DL with a lower back strain, reports MLB.com. The team will also call up Dean Anna to fill in the roster spot. Grichuck picked up the injury during a work out Friday doing squats and has been unavailable since.

"We're going to have to change the workout from here on out," Grichuk acknowledged. "It wasn't a lot of weight. That's what was the surprising part of it. I was doing two warmup sets, and on the second set, about the fourth rep, I went down, got all the way down and came up about 2-3 inches and I kind of felt it lock out, tighten up, whatever you want to call it. I knew something had happened then."

Grichuck is hitting .200 with one home run and two RBI in 10 at-bats this season.

Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha tossed seven solid innings of work to pick up his second win of the season during Friday's 6-1 win over the Reds.

"Anytime you're going up against a guy like Cueto, you know you're going to have to match zeroes with him," Wacha said, per MLB.com. "That was the mentality going into it."

Over the seven innings, Wacha surrendered five hits and one run, while walking one and striking out four. His lone blemish was a solo home run to Joey Votto.

Despite coming into the game with a 1.42 ERA, Wacha was able to lower it to 1.35. Wacha has yet to allow more than one run in his first two starts of the season and is 2-0. 

His next expected start will be Thursday at Washington.

Cardinals right fielder Jason Heyward hit a solo home run in the third inning of Saturday's win over Cincinnati. The homer was Heyward's first since August 27 of last season, and his first as a Cardinal. 

"It's good to get runs up against a team like that," said Heyward to FOXSports.com. "I feel like they can score runs in a hurry, and it's good not to let them get momentum back the next inning."

Heyward went 1 for 4 and is hitting .227 with three RBI.

Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez worked six strong innings in St. Louis' 5-2 win over the Reds Saturday. Martinez allowed one run on three hits with four strikeouts in the outing.

His only mistake of the day came in the fifth inning when he allowed a lead off home run to Zack Cozart. He set the next three batters down in order. 

"He seems to have a pretty good feel for the changeup and the breaking ball, to kind of put a little more on, take a little off," manager Mike Matheny said to FOXSports.com. "That's something you don't necessarily teach. It's just a feel."

He will look to keep things rolling Friday against the Brewers.

Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright (2-1) yielded one run on seven hits in eight innings of work Sunday to defeat the Reds.

The one run Wainright allowed came in the third inning via an RBI single from Brandon Phillips.

Wainright struck out four and walked two.

"When you think careful, you end up making a mistake and you don't throw pitches with conviction," Wainwright said to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I wanted to pitch (Bruce) tough. I wanted to throw him pitches he could swing at. If you give in right there he can hit a tank bomb and all of sudden you’re down 4-1."

The right hander lowered his ERA to 1.72 with Sunday's performance.

Wainright's next start is set for Saturday in Milwaukee.

Following Randal Grichuck's lower back injury that landed him on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, the Cardinals will be reevaluating the outfielder's workout routine in order to minimize his chance of re-injury, per MLB.com. 

Grichuk hurt his back on Friday while performing squat exercises. 

"This one snuck up on him a couple times now," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "He's going to have to do things, probably, radically different."

Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter went 2 for 3 at the plate in St. Louis' 2-1 win over the Reds Sunday. Carpenter provided most of the offense for the Cardinals in the game, smacking a leadoff home run in the first inning over the center field wall off of Mike Leake, his second of the season.

"I didn't know I had that in me," Carpenter said to MLB.com. "I got a good swing off, and I guess it was carrying a little bit better tonight than usual, because I don't hit balls up there often."

He later added a single to boost his average to .400 in 45 at-bats this season. He also leads the team with 10 RBI from the lead off spot in the order.
