Cardinals SP Lance Lynn had Nationals number in 2014
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn is off to a promising start in 2015, posting a 1.64 ERA heading into his start Tuesday against the Nationals. If Lynn pitches like he did last season against the Nationals, then that ERA could continue to drop.
In two starts against Washington last year, the right-hander went 2-0 with a 0.66 ERA and 0.73 WHIP. He allowed just one run in 13 2/3 innings. He also had 13 strikeouts.
Lynn will be facing off against Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez. Baseball fans could be in for a pitcher's duel, as Gonzalez has a 1.17 ERA in three starts against the Cardinals since 2012.
The Nationals enter play Tuesday with 53 runs, which equals the league average.

Lynn is now 1-1 with a 1.64 ERA.
His next start is projected for April 21 against the Nationals.
Cardinals Lance Lynn strikes out nine, takes loss in debut
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn allowed two runs (one earned) on just two hits and one walk in six-plus innings Wednesday but was stuck with a loss in his team's 2-0 defeat against the Cubs.
Lynn, who racked up nine strikeouts in his season debut, made it through six innings without giving up a run, but hit the first batter of the seventh, who advanced to second on a throwing error by Lynn on a pickoff attempt. An RBI single chased Lynn from the game, and a second runner came home later in the inning.
Lynn will look to bounce back with his first win of the year Wednesday against the Brewers.
Cubs, Cardinals postponed Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Tuesday's game between the Cubs and Cardinals has been postponed due to the forecast of rain and sub-freezing wind chills throughout the evening, the Cubs announced.
A makeup date for Tuesday's postponement has yet to be scheduled, but it is likely to come in July or September rather than this week. Jake Arrieta and Lance Lynn were the scheduled starters for Tuesday's matchup.
Lynn has been named the starter for Wednesday's series finale against the Cubs. The Cardinals will keep the rotation in line moving forward, with John Lackey, Michael Wacha and Carlos Martinez on tap to face the Reds this weekend. Adam Wainwright is now scheduled to take the mound for the team's home opener Monday against the Brewers.
|2014 summary: Lance Lynn answered his detractors with another 15 wins in 2014, his third straight season with at least that many, but this time, he managed to avoid the midseason slump that afflicted him in 2012 and 2013. The result was a career-best 2.74 ERA, including 2.33 over his final 21 starts. Of course, it came with a predictably high WHIP, but he made up for it with 180-plus strikeouts for the third straight year.|
Playing time status: There have been times over the last couple years when those detractors were at their loudest and those slumps at their slumpiest that the Cardinals entertained the idea of moving Lynn to the bullpen and in fact did for a stretch in 2012. But coming off the year he just had, his job security couldn't be greater right now. No real injury concerns either.
2015 outlook: Roto purists have tended to shy away from Lynn on Draft Day, fearing regression because his ERA and WHIP don't jibe, but after three years of the same, it's safe to assume he's just exceptional that way, able to survive higher-than-usual hit and walk rates because of a lower-than-usual home run rate. Maybe last year's 2.74 mark was a little too good to be true, but as an innings-eater on a perennial contender, Lynn is a safe enough source of wins, not to mention strikeouts, to draft among the top 40 starting pitchers.
