News
Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong is 8 for 19 with three walks in his last five games, which have all come with him slotted in the leadoff spot.

"I’m definitely getting more comfortable," Wong said, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I’m starting to realize what kind of hitter I am. I understand that I can see some pitches and still be comfortable going deep into at-bats. Before, I kind of panicked leading off because I wasn’t someone who was comfortable taking pitches. Now I know I can still drive balls, no matter what the count. It just takes time. Leadoff isn’t an easy place to hit at. It’s all about learning and understanding how to hit leadoff and then buying into it."

The lineup change as pushed third baseman Matt Carpenter to the No. 2 spot, a move he sees as positive for the offense.

"I think we’re a better offense with him hitting leadoff and me hitting in the second spot," Carpenter said. "He just needed to develop as a hitter, and we’re seeing what he’s been able to become — a guy that can have tough at-bats. That’s the key to what a leadoff (hitter) is. It’s not giving away at-bats. And he hasn’t given away at-bats all year."

Wong's recent hot stretch gives him a .315/.369/.469 line with five home runs and 22 RBI in 162 at-bats.

News
Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha allowed one run, unearned, on five hits in seven innings of work in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Royals.

Wacha cruised throughout his start, expect for one issue in the fifth. Alex Gordon was able to reach safely on a throwing error and advanced to second base. Salvador Perez then singled him home for Kansas City's only run of the game. Wacha, now 7-0, recorded four strikeouts with two walks in the contest. 

"I missed with a couple of fastballs in," Wacha said to MLB.com. "I knew I didn't want to go 3-0 on him, so I just had to try and paint the inside corner. Luckily, I got it in there enough."

Wacha will look to keep things rolling Saturday against the Dodgers.

"We continue to watch him improve," manager Mike Matheny said. "We've watched Michael be very special in some big situations as a young pitcher. As he has been able to add confidence and add pitches ... we're watching him take advantage. We just want to keep him moving in a positive direction and thinking about what's the next step."

News
Cardinals outfielder Jason Heyward was forced to miss Saturday's game against the Royals while battling hip tightness, manager Mike Matheny said per FOXSports.com.

Heyward felt his hip tighten up on Friday, but should be available to pinch hit, according to Matheny. He will likely return to the lineup on Sunday.

"I think it just kind of tightened up as the game went on," Matheny said. "I don't think there was one independent action that caused it. We'll keep an eye on him."

Heyward is hitting .238 with 12 RBI in 151 at-bats this season.

Cardinals pitcher John Lackey allowed three runs on six hits in five innings of work in St. Louis' 3-2 loss to the Royals in a rain-shortened game.

Lackey had trouble in the second inning when he was ripped for a two-run home run by Alex Gordon. Then in the fourth, Lackey allowed a leadoff double to Eric Hosmer, who advanced to third. Salvador Perez drove home the go-ahead run with a single.

"It stinks really bad," Lackey said to FOXSports.com. "There's a lot of game left. In baseball they do things the same way for a long time."

Lackey, now 2-3, moved his ERA to 3.18 in 56 2/3 innings of work this season. He will look to get back on track Friday against the Dodgers.

"He's just a pro," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said to MLB.com. "We're big fans of the way he goes about his work, how he plays the game and how he respects the game and his teammates."

Back - Questionable for May 27 start vs. Arizona (Updated - 5/23/15)
News
Although Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn was able to go six innings Friday against the Royals, he labored through back cramps. Lynn started to feel the back cramps while warming up in the bullpen, per MLB.com.

"There are going to be games where you don't feel good and you just have to go out there and see what you can do," Lynn said. "When it was all said and done, two pitches cost me five runs.

"The only time I'm going to come out of the game is if I can't walk off. I hope it's just one of those nights, but you never know. You have to pitch through things as the season wears on."

Lynn received treatment following his start Friday and will be re-evaluated Saturday. He anticipates making his next start Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

"We'll get it fixed and see what we can do to get going," Lynn said.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny could see Lynn was struggling with something Friday, as he allowed five runs on 10 hits and one walk.

"He was holding back a little bit," Matheny said of Lynn. "That's what kind of had us concerned. He wasn't finishing his pitches."
