  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Lone source of runs in blowout loss

    Palacios went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Friday's 19-2 loss to the Reds.

    Palacios' third-inning blast was the Cardinals' lone bright spot in an ugly loss. The outfielder has hit safely in five straight games, going 6-for-18 (.333) with a homer and three doubles in that span. For the season, he's at a .267/.304/.535 slash line with six homer, 16 RBI, seven runs scored and two stolen bases over 30 contests.

  • Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Crushed in short outing

    Woodford (2-3) yielded seven runs on six hits and a walk over 1.2 innings and took a loss against the Reds on Friday.

    Woodford gave up three home runs and was chased from the game in the second inning. He returned from the injured list earlier this month and allowed just one run over 6.1 frames in two appearances before Friday's misstep. Woodford finishes the 2023 season with an unsightly 6.23 ERA and 29:22 K:BB through 47.2 innings.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Returns to lineup

    Goldschmidt (back) is starting at first base and batting second Friday against the Reds, John Denton of reports.

    Goldschmidt has sat out the Cardinals' last two games while dealing with back tightness, but the issue seems to have subsided ahead of Friday's contest. The 36-year-old first baseman has been held hitless (0-for-8) over his last three games.

  • Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Draws another start

    Woodford is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Reds at Busch Stadium.

    Woodford will make a second straight turn through the rotation in what will likely mark his final appearance of 2023. In his return from Triple-A Memphis last weekend in San Diego, Woodford struck out one over 3.2 innings and gave up one earned run on four hits and two walks. He threw 78 pitches in that outing, but Woodford should be capable of reaching 90-to-100-pitch range Friday if he's effective enough to stay in the game that long.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Allows three runs in loss

    Hudson (6-3) gave up three runs on seven hits and three walks across five innings in Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Brewers. He struck out three.

    Hudson once again had trouble keeping traffic off the basepaths, allowing two of his runs on singles to William Contreras and Christian Yelich. His struggles with the free pass continued, as the right-hander has now allowed three walks in four of his last five games. He finishes the season with a 4.98 ERA and 1.50 WHIP across 81.1 innings, with 45 strikeouts.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Out with back tightness

    Manager Oliver Marmol said Goldschmidt is out of the lineup Thursday at Milwaukee due to back tightness, Bally Sports Midwest reports.

    Goldschmidt also sat Wednesday, though Marmol indicated that the back issue is nothing serious. "We want to make sure he's good to play when we get back home in front of our own fans [for the final weekend in St. Louis]," Marmol said Thursday. "No reason to really push through it today." Luken Baker has been filling in at first base.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Sitting again Thursday

    Goldschmidt remains out of the lineup Thursday at Milwaukee.

    There's no word of an injury, but Goldschmidt did not play in the Cardinals' 3-2 loss to the Brewers on Wednesday and will ride the pine again in Thursday's series finale. Luken Baker is starting at first base as Juan Yepez fills the DH role.

  • Cardinals' Jacob Barnes: Takes loss Wednesday

    Barnes (0-1) allowed one run on one hit over two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Brewers.

    Barnes got the last two outs of the sixth inning with no trouble but put a runner on in the seventh, and Matthew Liberatore couldn't prevent the go-ahead run from scoring. Barnes has worked in a low-leverage role with the Cardinals, pitching to a 7.15 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 6:3 K:BB over 11.1 innings across 11 appearances this season after he was called up Aug. 22.

  • Cardinals' Zack Thompson: Logs no-decision Wednesday

    Thompson pitched 5.1 innings against Milwaukee on Wednesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and one walk while striking out five batters over 5.1 innings. He did not factor in the decision.

    Thompson carried a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the sixth frame but couldn't make the advantage stand up. He gave up consecutive doubles to begin the inning, resulting in the Brewers' first run, then saw the game-tying run cross the plate on a one-out fielder's choice. That tally was unearned due to a previous throwing error behind him, but it was nonetheless enough to move Thompson out of position for a win. His last victory came Sept. 9. This was presumably Thompson's final appearance of the campaign, and he finishes with a 4.34 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 72:25 K:BB over 66.1 frames, with nine of his 25 appearances coming as a starter.

  • Cardinals' Jose Fermin: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Fermin is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

    Fermin is 5-for-18 with a walk and no extra-base hits in six games since being promoted from Triple-A Memphis in early September. The 24-year-old has seen more action of late with Nolan Arenado (back) shut down for the final stretch of the season, though it's Juniel Querecuto starting at third base Wednesday.

  • Cardinals' Paul Goldschmidt: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Goldschmidt is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game at Milwaukee.

    Goldschmidt started the previous 14 games but will take a seat Wednesday after he posted a .200/.322/.380 slash line during that span. Luken Baker will move to first base while Juan Yepez receives a start as St. Louis' designated hitter.

  • Cardinals' Tommy Edman: Notches 13th homer

    Edman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Brewers.

    Just a few days after reaching the 25-steal milestone, Edman tied his career high in home runs Tuesday with his 13th blast. The long ball was his first of September. Edman is 9-for-31 (.290) with one RBI and three runs scored overall in his last eight games.

  • Cardinals' Ryan Helsley: Snares 13th save

    Helsley picked up the save in Tuesday's 4-1 victory over the Brewers. He struck out three over a perfect inning.

    Helsley was dominant while securing his 13th save of the season, a resurgent effort after he'd walked three batters and blown a save in his last appearance. In September, Helsley owns a 0.84 ERA and a 17:6 K:BB with six saves across 10.2 innings.

  • Cardinals' Miles Mikolas: Dominant for eighth win

    Mikolas (8-13) earned the win Tuesday, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over seven innings against the Brewers. He struck out five.

    After allowing five earned runs and taking the loss in each of his last three starts, Mikolas rattled off seven innings of one-run baseball against Milwaukee. The outing marked Mikolas' second in the last 10 starts without allowing a home run. Over that stretch (60 innings), Mikolas owns a 6.00 ERA with a 33:13 K:BB. He's lined up to close out the Cardinals regular season Sunday against the Reds at Busch Stadium.
