Cardinals at Pirates Recap: Cards' three-run seventh inning enough for the win

Cards beat the Bucs with one good inning from the offense and seven from John Lackey. Le Recap Sans Wi-fi The first six innings of tonight's game were ruled by double plays, Cardinal strikeouts, and a solo home run from The One Who Goes Yard. Pirates starter Francisco Liriano struck out four Cardinals the first time through the order and eight in his six innings (and one batter) of work. For his part John Lackey went seven innings, walking one and striking out three. The Pirates got on the board first on a second-inning tater by noted Card-killer Pedro Alvarez. As Ahab said of the foe he...

Lackey Pays For Uni Number With Babe Ruth Ball

Lackey Pays For Uni Number With Babe Ruth Ball

Apparently, former Red Sox pitcher John Lackey really likes the number forty-one. Why else would he hand over a perfectly good Babe Ruth-autographed baseball to teammate Pat Neshek for a dumb jersey number? We realize forty-two is always unavailable, and 40, 43 and 44 are already taken on the Cards. OK, OK, and 45 is Bob Gibson's retired number. Alright, we take it back, nice move, Lackey. For sure.

In Pawtucket, Craig says foot feels better

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- Allen Craig can’t wait to get back to Boston, and the Red Sox outfielder took the first steps toward accomplishing that goal on Monday. The 30-year-old first baseman/outfielder, acquired along with Joe Kelly in the deal for John Lackey, played seven innings as the Pawtucket DH on Monday and went 0-for-2 with a walk in three plate appearances. He was hitting .237 with 7 homers and 44 RBIs on the season, which includes only four at-bats as a member of the Red Sox (going 1-for-4), when he was put on the DL.

Cardinals vs Padres recap: Lackey, Peralta, Jay, and general craziness net 4-3 win

Jhonny Peralta dinger brings early lead. Trevor Rosenthal struggles bring late heartburn. Tonight John Lackey (12-8, 3.98 ERA, 3.82, FIP, 3.44 xFIP) took his third turn on the mound for the Cardinals. On the other side, lefty Eric Stults (5-13, 4.76 ERA, 4.79 FIP, 4.26 xFIP) went for the Padres. After one good and one ugly start, Lackey looked to be more like the solid starter the Cardinals traded for. The lineup was a bit of a surprise as Peter Bourjos, Shane Robinson, Mark Ellis, and Tony Cruz were all rotated in to face the lefty. Matt Holliday also got the start, despite being...

A closer look at John Lackey's first start with the St. Louis Cardinals

John Lackey was solid in his Cardinals debut. He will be jockeying with Lance Lynn for the #2 spot in the rotation come playoff time, I believe. Three days ago, John Lackey made his first start in a St. Louis Cardinals uniform since being acquired from the Boston Red Sox. Over seven innings, he scattered seven hits, allowed two earned runs, struck out four, and walked none. For perspective, Joe Kelly, one of the two players sent to Boston in the deal, has completed seven innings in a start just twice in 38 career attempts. Statistically speaking, Lackey had quite the debut, and his...

John Lackey sheds no tears

ST. LOUIS — There was no pass-the-hanky moment, no catch in the voice, no “it’s getting dusty in here” moment with John Lackey yesterday.In fact, after spending a few hot and sticky and uncomfortable minutes with Lackey in the Cardinals home dugout, it sure felt as if he had not only turned the page on his 41⁄2-year Red Sox career about three seconds after the trade went down last Thursday, but that he had already begun reaching to turn that page well before the trade.
