    Wainwright labored his last time out due to issues with his timing and fastball command. He managed to go seven innings for the 18th time in 23 starts, but will need at least three tries to get win no. 14.

    Greinke was pushed back a day for this start because of his success against the Cardinals (2-1, 2.11 ERA in Busch Stadium). He's also 32-23 with a 3.48 ERA when pitching on five days' rest.

    17.2 IP, 2-0, 0.51 ERA........Last 3 starts........23.0 IP, 2-0, 1.17 ERA

    A permanent member of the rotation until further notice, Kelly has not allowed a run in his last two starts. He's pitching regularly enough, too, that he has no pitch-count restrictions: He threw a season-high 102 on Thursday.

    Kershaw is a machine. He's coming off eight scoreless innings against the Yankees and arguably is having an even more dominant season than in 2011, when he won the NL Cy Young Award.

    20.1 IP, 1-1, 1.33 ERA........Last 3 starts........24.2 IP, 2-0, 0.73 ERA

    The rookie breezed through the first five innings of his start on Friday against the Reds before admittedly taking his foot off the gas pedal and serving up a three-run homer. He still earned his 11th win, despite lasting only five-plus frames.

    Nolasco allowed three solo home runs in Wrigley Field and pitched only five innings in his last start, but management believes his acquisition has helped solidify the starting rotation and rest the bullpen.

    Ryu pulled a real escape act in Chicago, allowing 11 hits but only two runs over 5 1/3 innings in his last start. Still, he already has 10 wins and should get some NL Rookie of the Year Award consideration.

    Injuries

    Day-to-day


    Oscar Taveras
    July 21 - Top prospect Oscar Taveras’ ongoing recovery from a high ankle sprain has taken him off the field again within the past week, and Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak acknowledged the team could have been “more patient” with his recovery.
    Taveras had an MRI taken of his right ankle and lower leg and the persisting irritation above the ankle and between the leg bones has caused the team to take a more conservative approach.
    Taveras will not do any running for at least another week.
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    15-day DL


    Yadier Molina
    July 31 - As first reported by MLB.com’s Jenifer Langosch, the Cardinals have placed catcher Yadier Molina on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right knee. Molina has been dealing with the knee injury since early July and he aggravated it on Tuesday night in St. Louis’ 6-0 loss at Pittsburgh’s PNC Park
    NBC Sports


    Shane Robinson
    July 31 - Shane Robinson has also been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a right shoulder strain. The Cardinals have called up outfielders Adron Chambers and Brock Peterson from Triple-A Memphis to fill both vacant roster spots.
    NBC Sports


    John Gast
    July 29 - ATLANTA -- St. Louis left-hander John Gast is expected to be ready to pitch in eight-to-12 months after season-ending surgery on his left shoulder.
    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said in a statement on Friday that more will be known about Gast's recovery period when the team evaluates his rehabilitation in the next few weeks.
    ESPN

    60-day DL


    Chris Carpenter
    July 23 - The Cardinals’ pitcher was at Busch hours before Tuesday’s game against the Phillies, talking about his most recent rehab start for Class AAA Memphis and the discomfort attached to it.
    “I’m going to take a little bit of time,” Carpenter said. “After that last one, it just wasn’t what we were looking for. I wasn’t happy with the way that I recovered, and neither was the medical staff.
    “We are going to take a step back, again.”
    The 2005 Cy Young Award winner lasted only 3.1 innings on Saturday, surrendering four runs on nine hits, walking two on 74 pitches.
    Carpenter said he felt numbness in his throwing hand throughout the game, which affected how he pitched.
    Originally rehabbing from a nerve issue in his right shoulder, Carpenter experienced lower back troubles that slowed his rehab in June, and now with the numbness in his hand, there is no timetable as to when he will return to throwing.
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch


    Rafael Furcal
    June 14 - Rafael Furcal, who is out for the entire season as he recovers from Tommy John surgery, is pleased with how his rehabilitation is going.
    "I am happy with the way we're working right now," Furcal said. "It's progressing."
    The 35-year-old has not thrown yet, but he is eager to reach that stage in the rehab process.
    "Maybe when I get to about 8 or 10 weeks," Furcal said. "I'm just going to keep working hard every morning. It's a little boring, but it's getting better."
    Furcal lives about 45 minutes south of the Cardinals' facility in Jupiter, Fla., where he has been working daily to get his elbow back to full strength. He anticipates moving his rehab to St. Louis later this year.

    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."

    The cards should win this series all things considered, and maybe even sweep the dodgers.

    Lol.

    Feel like this when Puig bunts. Drives me insane.

    Kershaw vs. Kelly should be fun.

    As it turned out game 1 was a bit of a toss up too, good outing by Wainwright, ran into a tought inning and that was all she wrote.

    Pretty disgusting last night as far as leaving men on base for us! Hopefully the next 3 games we can get. Last night was a good game though. I'll be listening tonight on Xm radio at work.

    You guys are leading baseball in knocking in runners on base, this is more of an aberation against a good starter. The cards should win this series, or at least split it.
