  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Stuck with loss in quality start

    Mikolas (3-2) took the loss in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out five.

    The veteran right-hander didn't pitch badly and pounded the strike zone as per usual, but the Cardinals didn't score their only run of the game until the eighth inning, hanging Mikolas out to dry. He tossed 106 pitches (84 strikes) in his fifth quality start of the season, and he'll carry a stellar 1.68 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 36:9 K:BB through 48.1 innings into his next outing.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Starting Game 1 of doubleheader

    Mikolas will draw the start in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Mets, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    After Monday's game got postponed, Mikolas will be on the mound for the front end of the Cardinals' doubleheader Tuesday. The right-hander has been elite this season, posting a 1.49 ERA and 0.94 WHIP over 42.1 innings in seven starts.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Cardinals-Mets postponed Monday

    Mikolas and the Cardinals won't play Monday against the Mets after the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Mikolas was slated to serve as the starting pitcher during Monday's series opener, but he'll have to wait at least one more day to take the mound. The Cardinals haven't yet announced their updated pitching plans, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Mikolas take the mound in one of the two games during Tuesday's doubleheader.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Cruises to third win

    Mikolas (3-1) earned the win over Baltimore on Wednesday, allowing one run on four hits and one walk while striking out three over seven innings.

    St. Louis built a seven-run lead by the end of the fourth inning, allowing Mikolas to get into cruise control and pitch with little stress. The right-hander completed seven innings for the third time in his past four starts and yielded only one run for his second straight outing. Mikolas hasn't given up more than two earned runs in any of his seven appearances this season, leading to a sparkling 1.49 ERA through 42.1 frames. He'll look to keep rolling in his next start, which is expected to come on the road against the Mets early next week.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Picks up win Thursday

    Mikolas (2-1) allowed one run on seven hits and three walks over 5.2 innings against San Francisco on Thursday to earn the win. He struck out three.

    The right-hander allowed plenty of traffic on the basepaths, but only one of the hits against him went for extra bases, and he got help from his bullpen to escape a bases-loaded jam in the sixth inning and remain in line for the win. Mikolas mostly pitched to contact -- he registered only five swinging strikes and three punchouts -- but was able to extend his streak of starts with two or fewer runs allowed to six games to begin the season. He has posted a 1.53 ERA and 0.99 WHIP across 35.1 innings thus far, and he'll look to keep rolling in his next projected start, which lines up to come against Baltimore at home next week.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Beaten by eighth-inning homers

    Mikolas (1-1) took the loss Saturday against the Diamondbacks, allowing two runs on four hits in 7.1 innings of work, striking out seven while walking none.

    In a matchup between two veteran righties who jump-started their careers overseas, Mikolas and Merrill Kelly pitched to a scoreless tie through seven innings. While that was the end of Kelly's day, Mikolas remained in the game for the eighth inning and probably shouldn't have, as he gave up solo shots to Ketel Marte and Nick Ahmed. Despite the poor finish, it was on the whole another strong outing for Mikolas, who owns a 1.52 ERA and 0.84 WHIP through five starts. He tentatively lines up to face the Giants in San Francisco next week.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Strong start wasted Monday

    Mikolas didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Mets, giving up four hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings. He struck out five.

    The right-hander baffled New York hitters and generated plenty of weak contact, tossing 63 of 95 pitches for strikes before hitting the showers in line for his second win of the season. Unfortunately, Giovanny Gallegos blew his first save of the season in the ninth. Mikolas appears to have re-discovered his 2018 form, posting a 1.21 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 18:4 K:BB through 22.1 innings, and the key to his success so far has been the fact that he has yet to serve up a homer after giving up 33 of them (1.30 HR/9) over his last two seasons.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Sharp in Wednesday's no-decision

    Mikolas didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Marlins, scattering four hits over five-plus scoreless innings. He struck out five without walking a batter.

    He also hit a batter. The right-hander traded goose eggs with Sandy Alcantara for five frames, but after allowing a single to Garrett Cooper to lead off the sixth, Mikolas got the hook. He tossed 59 of 86 pitches for strikes and generated eight groundball outs without allowing a flyball out. Mikolas has looked very good to begin the season, posting a 1.76 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 13:3 K:BB through 15.1 innings over three starts.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Dominant in win

    Mikolas (1-0) earned the win, allowing one run on three hits and a walk in 6.2 innings while striking out seven in a 10-1 win Friday in Milwaukee.

    Mikolas allowed just one hit in his first six innings before getting into a little bit of trouble in the seventh. Coming off a rocky first start of 2022, the righty dominated the Brewers' lineup, retiring the side in order in four innings. The 33-year-old is now 6-2 in his career against Milwaukee with just five walks in 57 innings. His next start is scheduled for Thursday in Miami.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Scuffles in no-decision

    Mikolas gave up two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out one in 3.2 innings in a 6-2 win Saturday against Pittsburgh.

    Mikolas needed 41 pitches to get through the first inning and pitched around trouble all game. He was removed with the Cardinals leading 4-2 in the fourth rather than facing Bryan Reynolds for the third time. After pitching in only nine contests in the last two seasons because of forearm injuries, the 33-year-old pitched effectively in the spring and reportedly has a clean bill of health. The former All-Star looks to regain his 2018 form if he remains healthy this season. His next start will likely be at the end of next week in Milwaukee.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Full health in spring opener

    Mikolas was hitting 94 mph regularly in his initial spring training outing and is feeling good after suffering multiple injuries the last two years, Rick Hummel of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    The Cardinals needed some good pitching news given the setbacks for Jack Flaherty (shoulder) and Alex Reyes (shoulder) this spring. Mikolas was in great spirits following the outing. "My tagline right now is it feels good to feel good," he said. "It's a weight off your shoulders physically and mentally to not be warming up and thinking, 'How is it going to feel today?'''

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Strikes out seven in loss

    Mikolas (2-3) allowed three runs on seven hits and one walk with seven strikeouts through 5.2 innings, taking the loss in Wednesday's 4-0 defeat to the Brewers.

    Well, all good things must come to an end. One night after clinching a playoff berth with a franchise-record 17th consecutive win, the Cardinals suffered their first loss since Sept. 10. Mikolas was beyond solid for the majority of the night, allowing a run in the first before holding the Brewers scoreless through his next five innings pitched. But, with two outs in the sixth, Daniel Vogelbach took the right-hander yard for a two-run shot. After Lorenzo Cain followed that up with a base hit, manager Mike Shildt made a call to the bullpen. Even though it will be Mikolas' name affixed with an "L" in the box score of the game that ended the Redbirds' historic streak, he recorded season highs in strikeouts (seven) and pitches thrown (96). As the Cardinals look to make a run into October, look for Mikolas to pick up some work. He is the proud owner of a 1.50 ERA over 12 postseason innings.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Picks up quality start

    Mikolas (2-2) allowed two runs on four hits and no walks with three strikeouts through seven innings, picking up the win in Wednesday's 10-2 victory over the Brewers.

    Mikolas was staked to a 6-0 lead by the time the second inning rolled around and cruised to his second victory of the season Wednesday. The right-hander entered play having gone no deeper than 5.2 innings in a start this year, so to see him go seven is a boon for a Cardinals team that is as hot as any in baseball. The 33-year-old also set a new season high in pitches thrown with 91. He'll look to replicate this performance in his next outing, which figures to come against these same Brewers on Tuesday.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Earns first win of campaign

    Mikolas (1-2) picked up the win over San Diego on Friday, pitching 5.2 scoreless innings during which he allowed three hits and two walks while striking out three.

    The Padres managed only one extra-base hit against Mikolas and were unable to get to him for any runs. The right-hander lasted a season-high 5.2 frames and fell one out shy of his first quality start of the campaign. Mikolas isn't much of a fantasy asset thanks to his low strikeout total (21 in 32 innings) and uninspiring ERA (4.50), but he could be a major factor down the stretch for a Cardinals club that currently holds a one-game lead for the second National League wild-card spot. Mikolas' next chance to contribute will likely come next week at Milwaukee.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Hurls five innings Saturday

    Mikolas did not factor in the decision against Cincinnati on Saturday, allowing four runs on six hits and one walk while striking out one over five innings.

    The right-hander was mostly effective outside of the third inning, when he surrendered four runs on four hits, including a pair of homers. He didn't miss many bats, however, notching just one punchout and five swinging strikes. Mikolas has yet to pick up a win through six outings this season, and his 5.47 ERA along with subpar strikeout numbers make him an unexciting fantasy option. He's likely to next take the mound at home against the Padres on Friday.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Struggles early in loss

    Mikolas (0-2) allowed five runs (four earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out three in five innings as he took the loss Monday versus the Dodgers.

    The 33-year-old allowed five batters to reach base in the first inning, leading to four of the runs against him. St. Louis wasn't able to muster much offense against Dodgers ace Max Scherzer, leaving Mikolas with his second loss in five starts this year. He's posted a 5.06 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 17:7 K:BB through 21.1 innings. The veteran right-hander is on track for another home start this weekend versus Cincinnati.
