News
Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia had a solid season-debut in Thursday's loss to the Mets. Garcia, who had been out since the middle of last season with a shoulder injury, pitched seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits. He struck out three and walked five on the afternoon.

"We have had a couple starters in this spot throw close to 100 pitches and not get us out of the third or the fourth," manager Mike Matheny said, per MLB.com. "The fact that he was able to throw seven for us, that means that he was good, and he kept us in the game. Jaime's stuff looked right. It was good to have him back."

Garcia allowed an RBI single in the bottom of the fourth, and then was touched up for a solo home run by Lucas Duda in the sixth.

"I felt fine," Garcia said. "I didn't even know how many pitches I threw. I was just trying to compete and make pitches until they took me out of the game. It was as good as it can be."

His next start will likely be Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

News
Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha improved to 6-0 during a 10-2 rout of the Mets on Tuesday, joining Bartolo Colon and Felix Hernandez as the only pitchers in the majors with six wins.

The right-hander allowed two runs on four hits and two walks in seven innings. He struck out five. His only real blemish of the game was allowing a two-run homer to Daniel Murphy in the fourth inning.

Wacha has allowed more than two earned runs just once in eight starts.

"I think he's a better pitcher," manager Mike Matheny said, per MLB.com. "I think he was a guy like a lot of the young pitchers we bring up who was a two-pitch pitcher with a real good fastball and a changeup. The curveball is a legitimate pitch now, and so is the cutter.

"He's improved. I think he's just getting a better idea of how to use his stuff each night, and he's adjusting real well. [Catcher] Yadi [Molina] is a great help, too, to figure out what's good that day and ride it out."

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny and pitcher John Lackey cleared any tension that lingered over from Monday's seven-inning outing, per MLB.com.

Lackey, who spent 12-plus years in the American League before making his National League debut this season, was visibly frustrated after he was pulled out in favor of a pinch hitter in the eighth inning after tossing only 76 pitches because the team down a run with six outs remaining.

"You hate to ever insult a guy and give him the obvious [explanation that he can't hit], but it is obviously different," Matheny said. "I would say if that was an American League game that I'd be hoping he was still pitching in the 14th. But it wasn't. And we have to do what's best for everybody."

Lackey told reporters that he understands Matheny's decision to pull him out, though he wasn't pleased with it during the game.

"He gets where I'm coming from," Lackey said. "I get where he's coming from. Everything is fine. ... If Peter [Bourjos] gets on base, he can steal two bags. If I get on base, what the [heck] am I going to do? Stand there?"
