Cardinals running back Justin Masterson had a tough start Monday against the Reds.

The Cardinals managed to battle back, giving Masterson a no-decision. He’ll take on the Phillies in his next start.

News
Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn earned a win Wednesday, giving up four hits and two walks in seven scoreless innings and striking out five in his team's 7-3 victory over the Reds.

Lynn (14-8) was only at 94 pitches after seven innings, but a weather delay cost him the chance to go deeper into the game. He's surrendered more than two earned runs just once in his last nine starts going back to the beginning of July, and in that off game he only gave up three earned runs in 5 2/3 innings. Lynn owns a 2.78 ERA and 144:57 K:BB ratio in 158 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Pirates Tuesday.
