Recap 4/19: Cardinals lead Nationals early, hold on to win 4-3

Lance Lynn survives a lefty-heavy lineup to put in a perfectly decent outing. The Cardinals score four thanks to poor Nationals defense yet again. Lance Lynn's struggles against lefties have not gone unnoticed across the league.  Joey Votto and Jay Bruce destroyed Lynn in two starts almost single-handedly providing all the Reds' offense.  (So just like every other game for the Reds).  The Brewers put in the three lefties they had on their roster, but luckily those guys were not very good.  Today, the Nationals had five lefties face Lynn, two of which were switch hitters. The results...

Bird Bytes: Lynn, Miller are the key to rotation

The Cardinals already have one of the NL's better rotations, but more consistent versions of Lance Lynn and Shelby Miller can make it special.

Lynn may be lucky, but he's also good

Lance Lynn seems to be the pitcher some St. Louis Cardinals fans love to hate.

Cards at Brewers Recap 4/14: Lynn and Martinez dominate Brewers in 4-0 win

Peralta and Jay hit home runs so Craig doesn't have to. Lance Lynn threw seven superb innings and Jon Jay hit a three-run home run to defeat the Brewers 4-0. Carlos Martinez was fire, Matt Carpenter spoke truth to power, and Allen Craig hit a fly ball and a line drive in the same game, as the Cardinals took the first game of the series from Milwaukee--and on Milwaukee Day. Lance Lynn Entering tonight's game, Lynn had faced 20 left-handed batters, walking just one, striking out two, and giving up one homer. Sixteen of those PAs, then, had ended with his pitch being hit into play. His BABIP...

Brewers' lefty look doesn't rattle Lance Lynn

St. Louis starter Lance Lynn did just fine, despite a lineup stacked with left-handed hitters.

*Early Reports on Lance Lynn against left-handed hitters

Lance Lynn has struggled in his career against left-handed hitters. He has faced some tough hitters in Joey Votto and Jay Bruce in his first two starts this year. Ignoring the results for the most part, looking at pitch location and selection early on could determine whether Lynn is trying a new approach this season. Lance Lynn continues to be one of the most divisive figures among the Cardinals fan base, and his first two starts have done little to settle his place as a Cardinals player. Lynn has pitched well the past two seasons, striking out roughly a batter an inning, and proving to be...

Cardinals vs Reds 4/8 Recap: Lance Lynn fights through rough start, hitters finally come though

This game was, altogether, not all that different from Lynn's first start against the Reds.  He gives up 3 runs in the first, the Cardinals' offense fights back (which it always seems to do in Lynn starts), and he cruises for awhile, and then the game is ultimately decided in the 7th inning. Let's talk about Lance Lynn. These past two starts have been pretty much everything Cardinals fans dislike about him: he gives up crooked innings, his command is iffy (though he didn't walk any tonight), which leads long games.  Ultimately, however, he allowed 8 hits, while getting 6 groundouts and 3...

Cardinals at Reds Recap 4/3: Lynn and Cards defeat Homer Bailey and Reds 7-6 despite rain, Reds

After nearly four hours of rain delay and down three runs after the first inning, Lance Lynn and the Cardinals came back to beat the Reds in Cincinnati, 7-6, on Thursday night. Despite home runs from both Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier in the bottom of the first, Lynn recovered to produce a good though brief line: 5IP, 8H, 3ER, 7K, 1BB. His counterpart on the Reds, Homer Bailey, put up a line of 4.1IP, 7H, 4ER, 3K, 3BB. Pat Neshek gave up a three-run homer to Todd Frazier (his second of the game), while Trevor Rosenthal closed the game with a four-out save. In a game that was exhilarating and...

Spring Training Recap: Cardinals falter late, fall to Marlins 6-5

Spring Training Recap: Cardinals falter late, fall to Marlins 6-5

The Marlins of Miami are now 5-0 against the Cardinals this spring. Future powerhouse, anyone? With a combined WAR greater than three MLB teams in 2013, the pitching match-up of Lance Lynn and Jose Fernandez should have been a tight battle for runs.  Combined with the awful lineups trotted out by both teams, it was almost certainly going to be a pitching duel.  Alas, the uselessness of Spring Training reared its ugly head. Jose Fernandez pitched poorly, struggling with command most of the game.  Two of his four strikeouts were against Lance Lynn.  Of his two walks, one was on four...
