5.1 Cardinals vs. Pirates Recap: Lynn strong, Matts strong, Cards walkoff Pirates

St. Louis Cardinals @ Milwaukee Brewers - Game 17 open thread - April 26, 2015

Lance Lynn vs. Mike Fiers It's a getaway day for the St. Louis Cardinals in Milwaukee. With the Cards having already notched two victories in the first two games of the three-game series and Yadier Molina still day-to-day with a knee injury of some sort, manager Mike Matheny has given us a getaway-day lineup most LaRussan. Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke has penciled in a lineup that is not so much a getaway-day lineup as a Brewers lineup when Carlos Gomez, Jonathan Lucroy, and Scooter Gennett are on the DL. The Cardinals lineup: Matt Carpenter, 3B Jason Heyward, RF Jhonny Peralta, SS Matt...

St. Louis Cardinals fall 2-0 despite strong start from Lance Lynn

With six good innings and a seventh inning filled with defensive miscues, the Cubs win by not making any mistakes. "Boy these pitchers are making some pitches today.  If they miss, they miss by.... a nano half-inch." The above quote by Tim McCarver, mentioned sometime in the middle innings, provides a good summary for the Cardinals 2-0 loss to the Cubs.  This was a classic pitcher's duel between two starters who left hitters so helpless it would take a mental lapse or defensive ineptitude to determine the winner.  That's exactly what happened in the top of the seventh when Lance Lynn...

Lance Lynn's regression candidacy

Lance Lynn has been solid and steady for the Cardinals the past few seasons, but whether or not his performance will get better or worse is up for debate. Being very good but not great, sturdy when others are fragile, and dependable when others are new or old is a good recipe to be overlooked and underappreciated. Lance Lynn is starting the second game of the season for the Cardinals. He signed a three-year contract extension for $21 million. I wrote in the playoffs that Lance Lynn is no longer unappreciated.
