Luke Weaver gets nerves before every game. But the special jitters he had before his first Major League start a week ago have subsided.

8/19/2016 | Cards top Phils in 11 on Grichuk's clutch 2B

Randal Grichuk does not want to get sent back to the Minors -- and he's playing like it. Jhonny Peralta led off the 11th inning by hammering a double into left.

Seth Maness' surgery on his ulnar collateral ligament Thursday went well, in two aspects. It was a successful operation -- and it wasn't Tommy John surgery, as had originally been scheduled.

8/16/2016 | Aiming for return, Holliday opts for surgery

Matt Holliday will undergo surgery in St. Louis on Wednesday to repair a bone that was fractured by a 94-mph pitch last Thursday. Having the procedure does not guarantee a return in 2016, but it at least allows for the possibility.

8/15/2016 | No matter what, never count out Cardinals

According to the National League Central standings, the Cardinals are 12 games behind the Cubs. Yet you can't help but wonder: Do they have the league right where they want it? There are teams you can write off when they're beat up and things aren't going well. Then there are the Cardinals.

8/15/2016 | Pinch-hit, power combo key to Cards' success

The two most reliable offensive catalysts this season -- pinch-hitting and power -- came through again on Sunday for a Cardinals club that was well aware of who was looming. Three outs away from meeting Aroldis Chapman, the Cardinals, boosted by their bench and two blasts, toppled Chicago's pursuit of a series win with a five-run eighth that secured a 6-4 win.

8/14/2016 | Siegrist lifted in middle of 8th with arm soreness
