Trevor Rosenthal notches save number 27 Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Cardinals reliever Trevor Rosenthal notched save number 27 Wednesday against the Pirates.

Rosenthal entered the game with a three-run lead, and didn't get himself into too much trouble. After giving up a leadoff walk to Pedro Alvarez, Rosenthal was able to work around the base runner. He recorded one strikeout during the outing. Rosenthal now has a 3.59 ERA. 


Brandon Cumpton gets knocked around Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Pirates starter Brandon Cumpton lasted less than four innings Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Cumpton was very hittable, allowing four runs on nine hits in just 3 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out two during the outing. Things could have been worse, as Cumpton loaded the bases in the fourth inning. After getting one out, he was removed with the bases juiced. Ernesto Frieri managed to work out of the jam without surrendering any additional runs, most of which would have been charged to Cumpton. 

The loss dropped Cumpton to 3-3 on the year. It's unclear when Cumpton will make his next start due to the approaching All-Star break.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn picked up his 10th win Wednesday.

Lynn allowed two earned runs on six hits over 6 2/3 innings of work. He walked two and struck out four during the outing. Neil Walker proved to be a thorn in his side Wednesday. Walker hit a solo home run in the second inning, and then doubled, and eventually came around to score, in the fourth. He accounted for both runs against Lynn. 

The win moves Lynn to 10-3 on the year. His next start should come shortly after the All-Star break .
