    Westbrook will be going for career win No. 100 for the third time after the bullpen blew a lead in his last start. The Cards have lost three of his four starts even though he has allowed an earned run in only one of them.

    Peralta appears to be building some confidence. He hit 96 mph with his second pitch against the Dodgers and 97 mph three pitches after that, and balanced that heat by throwing a higher-than-usual percentage of changeups.

    Miller's smooth April endured a laborious end on Sunday, when he needed 113 pitches to cover 5 2/3 innings. Fastball command continues to be key for Miller, who is still learning how best to incorporate his offspeed pitches.

    Lohse has been great, but unlucky. The Brewers are 2-3 in his starts while scoring a total of one run in the losses, including 2-0 duels with the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw on Sunday and the Cards' Shelby Miller on April 12.

    Wainwright had a dominant April, averaging 7.4 innings per start and posting a 43:3 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He has been every bit the ace the Cardinals hoped, and he continues to experiment with throwing more high fastballs.

    After a laborious first two frames last time out, Gallardo settled down and completed seven innings while giving up only one earned run and retiring the final 13 batters he faced. He is 1-10 with a 6.84 ERA in 15 starts vs. the Cardinals.

    Using the Reds' aggressiveness in his favor, Garcia was efficient (92 pitches) in an eight-inning win on Tuesday. He recorded 18 of his 24 outs via the ground ball, an indication of superb movement on his pitches.

    With the roof open and the baseballs flying Tuesday on the first warm night at Miller Park, Estrada picked a bad night to elevate some pitches against the Pirates. He surrendered three home runs, matching a dubious career high.

    Injuries

    Day-to-day

    15-day DL


    Matt Adams
    May 1 - The St. Louis Cardinals say rookie first baseman Matt Adams will begin a minor league rehab with the Springfield Cardinals starting Friday.
    Adams was put on the 15 day disabled list after suffering a strained right oblique, which caused him to miss several weeks during his 2011 Texas League season with the double-A Cardinals.
    Adams was Texas League MVP in 2011.
    Adams could be back with the parent club as early as Tuesday when the Cardinals open a series in Chicago.
    KTTS


    Jason Motte
    Apr 29 - Jason Motte played catch twice over the weekend, throwing from 60 feet on flat ground, and afterward the rehabbing Cardinals closer told Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com that he “felt good.”
    Motte and the Cardinals are trying to determine if he can avoid surgery to repair a torn elbow ligament. Previously the stated plan was to make a decision one way or another by May 1, but that may be put on hold for a bit to see if Motte can advance in his throwing program without any setbacks.
    NBC Sports


    Rafael Furcal
    Mar 7 - JUPITER, Fla. -- St. Louis shortstop Rafael Furcal will undergo ligament replacement surgery in his right elbow and expects to miss the 2013 season.
    Furcal made the decision after visiting Dr. James Andrew's clinic in Pensacola, Fla., on Wednesday.

    60-day DL


    Chris Carpenter
    Mar 18 - JUPITER, Fla. -- Chris Carpenter passed through St. Louis Cardinals camp on Monday five weeks after leaving Jupiter because of physical issues that prevented him from pitching. He sounded more convinced than ever that his major league career is finished.
    Carpenter, 37, continues to be bothered by numbness in his right hand and arm and a mysterious weakness in his shoulder. At the moment, he is focused less on a return to baseball than seeking peace of mind that his current issues won't be a lifelong concern.

    I like all 4 match ups.

    Only thing I wish was that wainwright was facing Lohse, you never know how rookies will do in an away game and on top of that The ball can fly in Milwaukee.

    Still like the match ups

    I think I'd rather Westbrook be pitching in the Gallardo game, too. Since he's still the guy I have the least amount of confidence in (as far as the starters go), and we generally do well enough against Gallardo to compensate for that.

    But hey, maybe Wainwright will get some run support now?

    Maybe my computer is glitching but apparently Gallardo is pitching the last two games. Although Estrada has his picture there lol

    Yeah Ideally we match our worst starter vs Gallardo, which sounds funny since many consider him their best starter but he just hit him so hard that usually it doesn't matter lol

    Miller vs Gallardo and Waino vs Lohse would be ideal IMO

    unfortunatly it doesn't make much sense for him to go on 1 less days rest

    Oh, yeah it does. But if you click on the second Gallardo name, it goes to Estrada's page.

    Time for Boggs to go to AAA

    Salas needs to go but at least we know Salas won't be used late, we can't keep 2 mop up pitchers in

    Kelly and Boggs both with another horrible outing. Luckily we had a good cushion at this point and Rosenthal comes up huge to get us out of that jam.

    What the heck was up with Rosenthal and Molina looking at the ball and neither of them throwing it to first?
