Cruz struck in the fourth inning. With the game tied, Cruz stepped to the plate with the bases empty. On the second pitch of the at-bat, he belted an 88 mph slider out to left to put his team ahead.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina tried to talk his way into the team's starting lineup Thursday, according to the USA Today.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) The Cardinals will go with Tony Cruz behind the plate for Game 5.

With Yadier Molina still unable to return due to an oblique injury, the team will turn to Cruz. A.J. Pierzynski got the nod for Game 4, but will be relagated to the bench Game 5. Cruz hit .200/.270/.259 over 135 at-bats in the regular season. 


Pirates to extend qualifying offer to Russell Martin


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) The Pirates will extend a qualifying offer to catcher Russell Martin, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

General manager Neal Huntington has said the club will do whatever it can to retain Martin, but there's some believe he's already priced himself out of Pittsburgh's budget. The club reportedly offered Martin a long-term deal during the season, but Martin declined. 

With the qualifying offer, Martin could return to the Pirates for one season at a $15.3 million salary. He's expected to receive a lucrative multi-year deal on the market, so he may end up declining that offer. Martin hit .290/.402/.430 over 379 at-bats.


Giants C Buster Posey drives in three runs in Game 4 NLCS win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Giants catcher Buster Posey went 2 for 3 with a walk and three RBI in his team's 6-4 win over the Cardinals in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series Wednesday.

Posey put the Giants on the board with a sacrifice fly in the first inning to tie the score 1-1. The Cardinals were able to put three more runs on the board in the next two innings, but Posey responded with an RBI single in the bottom of the third inning. After the Giants took a lead in the sixth, the catcher added an insurance run with another RBI single. Posey has posted a .333 batting average in 39 postseason at-bats but has yet to mange an extra-base hit. Even so, his excellent Game 4 performance has the Giants one win away from heading to the World Series. Game 5 is set for Thursday.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) An oblique injury has Cardinals standout catcher Yadier Molina out of the lineup again Thursday for Game 4 of the National League Championships Series. A.J. Pierzynski is set to start in his place.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Although Yadier Molina (oblique) is not starting in Game 3 of the NLCS against the Giants, the Cardinals have not ruled out using him as a defensive replacement Tuesday, according to MLB.com. Though, Molina is not scheduled to take batting practice Tuesday, according to manager Mike Matheny.

The Cardinals' medical staff said Molina can't hurt himself further, according to USA Today. It's just a pain-tolerance issue.

Cardinals' Yadier Molina remains hopeful of playing again in NLCS


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Although Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Monday his "season isn't over" after suffering an oblique injury Sunday, it seems doubtful he will play again in the NLCS, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Though, it seems Molina is still holding out hope of making a very quick recovery.

"He is smart enough to know that if he can't help, he will step aside," Molina's longtime agent Melvin Roman said. "But if he can contribute, he will go for it. He will do everything in his power to try to play. You know Yadi, he will try."

Roman added, however, if Molina attempts to play, then it probably won't be until Game 4 at the earliest.


Yadier Molina day-to-day, remains on active roster


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina (oblique) is day to day after playing catch Monday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Manager Mike Matheny said Molina has been "watch and see," but the catcher threw well Monday and remains on the active roster for the National League Championship Series. However, Molina has yet to swing a bat and will likely need to clear that hurdle before being inserted into the lineup. Matheny refused to name a starting catcher for Tuesday's Game 3 action, but it's near certain A.J. Pierzynski will get the start against his former team.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Molina aggravated a left oblique strain that he suffered earlier in Game 2 on Sunday. The injury could knock him out for the remainder of the postseason, depending on further evaluation, according to the Associated Press.

Molina batted .238 (5 for 21) with a double and two runs scored this postseason.

Pirates' Russell Martin turned down contract offer


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The club made an attempt to re-sign Martin at some point during the season, but the catcher declined. The team pushed off extension talks into the season, but Martin quickly boosted his value. It's believed the Pirates will do everything they can to try and keep him, but Martin may have pushed himself out of their price range. Martin hit a solid .290/.402/.430 over 379 at-bats with the club.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Veteran catcher A.J. Pierzynski has been added to the Cardinals roster for their National League Championship Series against San Francisco. He will replace reliever Sam Freeman and serve as the third catcher.

Mike Matheny explained that he wanted another experienced bat available. Pierzynski also brings a bat that has hit well in the postseason. He owns a .300/.372/.520 stat line with 17 RBI in 30 career postseason games.

Pierzynski will most likely be used as primarily a pinch-hitter.
