  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Quality start in win Tuesday

    Mikolas (12-13) got the win after he pitched six innings, surrendering one run on four hits and a walk while striking out nine Tuesday against the Brewers.

    Mikolas was able to hold the Brewers scoreless over the first five innings, finally giving up a solo home run to Rowdy Tellez in the bottom of the sixth frame. The right-hander has now produced three consecutive quality starts, while the nine strikeouts were his highest since June 25. Over his last three outings, Mikolas has compiled a 2.00 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 18 innings. He tentatively lines up to pitch his final start of the regular season Monday versus the Pirates.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Takes tough-luck loss

    Mikolas (11-13) took the loss against San Diego on Wednesday despite allowing just an unearned run on three hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out six batters.

    This was one of Mikolas' best starts of the season, as it was the fifth time he's finished without surrendering an earned run and the seventh time he's allowed three or fewer hits. However, the right-hander got no run support from the St. Louis offense and was saddled with his third straight defeat. Mikolas is one of six pitchers with 13 or more losses this season, but he's the only one among that group with a sub-4.00 ERA. In fact, he has a solid 3.35 ERA on the campaign, and his 1.04 WHIP ranks within the top 20 among qualified pitchers.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Throws quality start but takes loss

    Mikolas (11-12) took the loss against Cincinnati on Thursday, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three batters over six innings.

    Mikolas was stung by the long ball in the contest, as solo homers by Nick Senzel and Aristides Aquino accounted for two of the three runs against him. The right-hander still managed to get through six frames and notch a quality start, but a lack of run support resulted in his 12th loss. Mikolas is tied for sixth in the league with 20 quality starts on the campaign, but he's also been blown up multiple times, resulting in a middle-of-the-road 3.46 ERA through 30 outings.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Fans eight in loss

    Mikolas (11-11) yielded four runs on eight hits and two walks over five innings Friday, striking out eight and taking a loss against the Pirates.

    Through the first four innings, the only damage against Mikolas was Ben Gamel's solo shot in the second frame. The veteran righty then gave up three runs in the fifth, including Oneil Cruz's two-run triple. Since coughing up 10 runs in Colorado on Aug. 9, Mikolas is 3-2 with a 3.15 ERA over his last six outings. On the year, he's sporting a 3.42 ERA with a 135:33 K:BB through 29 starts. Mikolas is lined up to face the Reds at home next week.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Dominant in win over Cubs

    Mikolas (11-10) allowed two hits and a walk while striking out three over eight shutout innings to earn the win Sunday over the Cubs.

    Mikolas mostly pitched to contact, amassing just eight whiffs while throwing 68 of 97 pitches for strikes. One of the two hits he allowed was a Franmil Reyes double, but Mikolas had no trouble eliminating the few scoring threats that the Cubs produced. He's gone eight innings in three of his last six starts, but he's been ineffective in the other three starts in that span. Overall, this solid outing lowered the right-hander's ERA to 3.32 with a 1.01 WHIP and 127:31 K:BB through 176.1 innings across 28 starts this year. He's projected for a road start in Pittsburgh next weekend.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Taken deep three times

    Mikolas allowed four runs on six hits and a walk over 4.1 innings against the Reds on Monday. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

    Mikolas rolled through four shutout frames before coughing up three home runs in the fifth inning, including Chuckie Robinson's two-run blast. The 34-year-old righty entered the All-Star break with a 2.54 ERA but he's posted an unsightly 5.81 ERA in eight starts since. Mikolas now owns a 3.48 ERA with a 124:30 K:BB through 168.1 innings. He's lined up to face the Cubs at home this weekend.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Six innings in loss

    Mikolas (10-10) took the loss Wednesday, allowing five runs (three earned) on six hits and one walk over 6.2 innings against the Cubs. He struck out three.

    After going 1-2-3 to start the game, Mikolas allowed three runs in the second and then settled in before getting saddled with two unearned runs in the seventh on his way to his 10th loss of the season. Despite the hiccups, Mikolas made it through six innings for the sixth time in his last seven outings, five of which have been quality starts. The 34-year-old has quietly put together his best season since 2018 with a 3.35 ERA and 1.02 WHIP to go along with his double-digit win total.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Dominant in 10th win

    Mikolas (10-9) earned the win Friday over the Diamondbacks. He allowed one run on two hits, a walk and a hit batter while striking out four across eight innings.

    Mikolas got through the Arizona order cleanly the first time, then allowed two baserunners in the fourth. The only run he surrendered was in the eighth on a groundout. Aside from a 10-run disaster in Colorado on Aug. 9, Mikolas has been fairly sharp lately. For the season, he owns a 3.32 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 118:28 K:BB through 157.1 innings across 25 starts. The right-hander is lined up for a road start versus the Cubs next week.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Strikes out six in win

    Mikolas (9-9) earned the win against the Brewers on Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits while striking out six and walking none over eight innings.

    The Brewers could not get much going against an efficient Mikolas, who threw 64 of 99 pitches for strikes in Sunday's contest. The righty bounced back well after allowing 10 runs in 2.2 innings to the Rockies in his last appearance. Mikolas picked up his 16th quality start of the year, his sixth in his last eight games. He will take a 3.44 ERA into his next appearance.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Nightmarish start in Colorado

    Mikolas (8-9) took the loss Tuesday versus the Rockies, allowing 10 runs on 14 hits while striking out two in 2.2 innings.

    For context, Mikolas had allowed 11 runs in his previous 18.1 innings across three starts, and that was one of his less impressive parts of the year. The 33-year-old right-hander will probably want to forget this one as fast as possible, as his ERA spiked from 2.92 to 3.50 after the horrid start. He's also posted a 1.09 WHIP and 108:27 K:BB through 141.1 innings across 23 starts. Mikolas will look to get back on track in a key divisional matchup versus the Brewers this weekend.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Solid in no-decision

    Mikolas took a no-decision in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader versus the Cubs. He allowed three runs on eight hits and a walk with six strikeouts in 6.1 innings.

    Mikolas had an extra day of rest after Wednesday's rainout, though he only produced middling results. The Cardinals' seventh-inning rally got him off the hook for the loss. He's turned in quality starts in five of his last six outings, and the veteran right-hander owns a 2.92 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 106:27 K:BB through 138.2 innings across 22 starts overall. Mikolas is tentatively set for a tough road start in Colorado his next time out.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Wednesday's game postponed

    Mikolas won't start as scheduled Wednesday against the Cubs since the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The game will be made up via a doubleheader Thursday, and Mikolas figures to start one of those contests. The right-hander surrendered six runs in his first outing after the All-Star break, but he bounced back with two runs allowed across seven innings during his last start.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Back in win column

    Mikolas (8-8) allowed two runs on six hits and a walk over seven innings Friday, striking out four and earning a win over the Nationals.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Ineffective in loss

    Mikolas (7-8) took the loss Sunday in Cincinnati, allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out four in five innings.

    All six runs against Mikolas came in the third and fourth innings. He allowed singles to three of the first four batters and, following a sacrifice fly, Joey Votto tagged him for a three-run, two-out blast in the third. In the next frame, a walk and two singles led to two more runs. It was the first time Mikolas allowed more than three earned runs in a start since June 3. He's now given up six homers in his last 30.2 innings. His next start will likely be next weekend in Washington.

    Mikolas (7-7) earned the win Saturday, allowing one run on three hits and one walk over seven innings against the Reds. He struck out four.

    Jonathan India tagged Mikolas for a leadoff homer to begin the game, but that would end up being the only blemish on Mikolas' line. With three consecutive quality starts to close the first half, Mikolas now sits with a 2.54 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 92:23 K:BB over 120.1 innings this season. An All-Star in 2018, Mikolas did not quite make the cut in 2022.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Stifles Phillies for sixth win

    Mikolas (6-7) picked up the win in Monday's 6-1 victory over the Phillies, allowing one run on six hits over 7.1 innings. He struck out five without walking a batter.

    The right-hander served up a solo shot to Rhys Hoskins in the first inning but was in full control after that, tossing an efficient 99 pitches (62 strikes) before exiting. Mikolas has delivered six quality starts in his last seven outings, posting a 2.08 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 37:7 K:BB through 47.2 innings over that impressive stretch, but a lack of consistent run support has left him with a 2-4 record during that time.
