(St. Louis, MO) — The Cardinals gave up five runs over the final two innings and lost 6-2 to the Phillies at Busch Stadium.

>>Cardinals Move Wainwright To 60-Day DL
(St. Louis, MO) — The Cardinals are moving pitcher Adam Wainwright to the 60-day disabled list. The 36-year-old has been dealing with pain in his pitching elbow and there is no timetable for his return. Wainwright is 1-and-3 with a 4.00 ERA in four starts this season. It’s the third stint on the DL this season for the three-time All-Star.
>>Cardinals Put C Kelly On DL
(St. Louis, MO) — The Cardinals are super thin at catcher right now. Already without perennial All-Star Yadier Molina, the Cardinals have placed Carson Kelly on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. Catcher Steve Baron has been called up from Triple-A Memphis. Molina is recovering from groin surgery.
