Cardinals may not be able to keep Pat Neshek


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Cardinals reliever Pat Neshek may have to test the open market this winter, according to MLB.com.

The performance earned him a trip to the All-Star Game. The team will likely attempt to re-sign Neshek, but there's a sense he can get a more lucrative deal elsewhere.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner worked eight strong innings Thursday against the Cardinals.

Bumgarner allowed three runs on five hits, struck out five and walked two. Bumgarner gave up his first run in the third inning. After putting two men on base via the walk, Bumgarner allowed an RBI double to Jon Jay.

Cardinals Adam Wainwright goes seven strong in final start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
