    After an exceptional Major League debut, Wacha stumbled in his second start. He was tagged for six earned runs on 10 hits and one walk and surrendered a home run in the Cardinals' 7-6 14-inning loss.

    Hefner's rotten luck continued Tuesday in Washington, where Bobby Parnell's blown save spoiled his seven innings of one-run ball. Despite quality starts in six of his last eight outings, Hefner has won only one of them.

    After allowing two runs on three hits in the first inning on Thursday, Miller settled down to pitch five scoreless frames and retired his last seven batters, six of them on strikeouts, to pick up his seventh win.

    With their jobs on the line, Hefner and Gee have transformed into better pitchers, one-upping each other on a weekly basis. To keep rolling, Gee will need to silence the Cardinals, who hung five runs on him last month.

    Wainwright became the Majors' second nine-game winner his last time out. He has made 12 quality starts and finished at least seven innings in 10 of his 13 outings. He has been every bit the ace the Cardinals hoped he would be.

    Harvey left his last start, the Mets' 20-inning loss to the Marlins, long before the outcome was near. He felt tightness in his lower back at the end of the seventh and left the game when warming up for the eighth.

    Injuries

    Day-to-day

    15-day DL


    Fernando Salas
    June 6 - • Fernando Salas (right shoulder inflammation) has been cleared to play catch and take batting practice.
    MLB.com


    Jake Westbrook
    June 10 - Out since May 12 with elbow inflammation, Jake Westbrook tossed seven innings of one-run ball yesterday at Single-A and Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that it’ll likely be his final minor-league rehab start.
    Westbrook struck out five, walked zero, and threw 76 total pitches, with Goold writing that the veteran right-hander “could be ready to rejoin the big-league rotation as early as Friday.”
    Westbrook had a 10/0 K/BB ratio in two rehab starts, allowing two runs in 10.2 total innings, and he had a 1.62 ERA in six starts with the Cardinals before the injury. And it just so happens that Friday’s opponent would be the Marlins, giving Westbrook the easiest possible matchup for his return.
    NBC Sports


    John Gast
    May 26 - Left-hander John Gast left Saturday's start with shoulder tightness, and, on Sunday, the Cardinals placed him on the 15-day DL according to Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com. Righty Michael Blazek has been recalled from Triple-A Memphis.
    CBS Sports

    60-day DL


    Chris Carpenter
    June 6 -
    ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter has thrown to hitters for the second time in four days as he tries to overcome a career-threatening nerve issue.
    The St. Louis right-hander threw about 25 pitches to teammates Shane Robinson and Tony Cruz on Thursday. It was Carpenter's fourth outing in a possible comeback.
    The former Cy Young winner hasn't pitched this season after feeling numbness in his throwing shoulder during spring training. Carpenter missed most of last year, then went 1-2 in the playoffs.
    Carpenter didn't speak to the media before the Cardinals played Arizona. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said Carpenter's pitches moved well.
    Matheny said Carpenter's next step will likely be a similar session with live batters in a few days if his body feels well enough.

    Jaime Garcia
    May 30 - Cardinals moved Jaime Garcia to the 60-day DL

    Jason Motte
    May 7 - CHICAGO -- St. Louis Cardinals closer Jason Motte had season-ending Tommy John surgery on Tuesday.
    Motte tweeted the ligament-replacement surgery on his right elbow "went well."
    ESPN


    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.

    Yeah, I figured he was bad news when I saw a few of his posts last week. Completely delusional homer.

    His only replies are "keep trolling harder."

    I just looked over that draft thread, jeffy.

    words don't even describe how annoyed i was reading what Swarley had to say.... thank you for making him look like an idiot (even though he probably doesn't know it or would ever admit it)

    Good series. Missed it while I was away in Wisconsin for a little vacation for our Wedding Anniversary. Glad to see we played well though.
