Holliday was sidelind only Sunday with a contusion. He has slumped recently, but still boasts a fine slash line of .314/.434/.443.

Cardinals' Kolten Wong 'getting more comfortable' leading off
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter went 1 for 3 at the plate in St. Louis' 6-1 win over the Royals on Sunday. 

Carpenter did his damage in the sixth when he belted a two-run home run off of Yordano Ventura, his eighth of the season. Carpenter, who also walked twice and struck out once, is now hitting .323 with 27 RBI in 158 at-bats this season.

"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."

Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha moves to 7-0 in win on Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

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."
