Tony Cruz plays rare role of hero in St. Louis victory
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cardinals backup catcher Tony Cruz certainly took advantage of a rare start Saturday in Washington.

Cruz singled in two runs in the third to give his team the lead and added another single in the ninth to raise his batting average to .444 on the season, albeit in only nine at-bats.

Rosenthal shaky again in nailing down save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal continued to struggle and save Saturday. He gave up yet another run, this time against the Nationals, but escaped to earn his fifth save.

Rosenthal hurled a hitless ninth, but a walk, balk and groundout brought in a run before he fanned Jayson Werth to end it. He has given up six earned runs in the last seven innings covering six appearances.

Lance Lynn handcuffs Nationals for fourth win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cardinals starter Lance Lynn became the first four-game winner in the National League and remained unbeaten Saturday with a 4-3 win in Washington.

Lynn made it through just 5 2/3 innings, but gave up only one run on a Danny Espinosa home run in the fifth. He yielded five hits, walked three and fanned five.

The right-hander ran his scoreless streak to 15 innings before yielding the home run to Espinosa. He will try to earn his fifth victory Thursday against the Mets.

Yadier Molina resting Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cardinals sizzling catcher Yadier Molina won't get a chance to extend his 10-game hitting streak Saturday unless he pinch-hits. He has been given the day off as Tony Cruz takes over the position for the game against Washington.

Molina has 16 hits in his last 37 at-bats and owns .344/.373/.547 stat line on the season.

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.
