Bad luck dooms Michael Wacha in first loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha pitched well yet again Friday against the Nationals, but got little help in his first loss of the season.

Wacha pitched seven strong innings, and definitely gave his team a chance to win, allowing just one earned run on an early home run. Unfortunately, two unearned runs came around to score in the second, on a wild pitch and then throwing error, and that was enough to cost the Cardinals the game, 3-1.

Wacha struck out seven batters and walked none, his first start without a free pass. He allowed his one earned run on five hits, while watching his record fall to 2-1. He carries a 1.73 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Wednesday against the Mets.

Kolten Wong sitting Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong is not in the team's starting lineup Friday against the Nationals.

Wong will be replaced by Mark Ellis, who recently returned from the disabled list. This is the second time in four days since he's been activated that Ellis finds himself in the starting lineup. It could point to reduced playing time for Wong moving forward.

Jon Jay being rewarded for strong play
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals outfielder Jon Jay has started three of the last four games in center, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The club brought in Peter Bourjos in the offseason, but he hasn't produced to open the season. Manager Mike Matheny said Jay has been playing well enough to warrant more playing time. "Jon had four quality at-bats (Wednesday)," Matheny said. "It’s a good day for him to keep that swing going."

Jay is hitting .250 in 28 at-bats.

Three teams showing interest in Jeremy Jeffress
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

At least three teams have shown interest in former Blue Jays reliever Jeremy Jeffress , according to TSN Radio.

The Cardinals, Brewers and White Sox have all considered bringin in Jeffress. He was drafted and developed in the Brewers organization prior to joining Toronto, so there are some ties in Milwaukee. The White Sox are in desperate need of bullpen help, which is why Jeffress makes sense. 

Jeffress refused an outright assignment, and became a free-agent Thursday.

Matt Adams drives in three Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams drove in three runs Thursday against the Nationals. 

Adams only picked up one hit during the game, but made it count. After driving in his first run on a groundout, Adams stepped to the plate with the bases loaded in the sixth inning. He clubbed a two-run single on a 96 mph fastball from Blake Treinen to center.

Adams finished the game 1 for 4, with no runs scored and three RBI.
