    St. Louis Post-Dispatch: DeJong homers, drives home four RBIs and Cardinals rock Reds with 10-run inning

    The Cincinnati Reds skated to a 7-0 lead by the middle of the fourth inning and forced Wainwright from his start before he could get an 11th out. Rather than steadily, consistently chewing away at the lead as the long-ago Cardinals did for Wainwright against the Nats, these Cardinals binged. They scored 10 runs in the sixth inning at Great American Ball Park and with a 12-11 victory forged their biggest single-game comeback since May 12, 2002. The Cardinals trailed that night, 8-0, before rallying to win against Cincinnati, at the same ballpark.

    Shortstop Paul DeJong had a two-run double in the decisive inning and a two-run homer to expand the Cardinals' lead later.

    Viva El Birdos: Checking In On Harrison Bader

    Harrison Bader is a productive member of the 2019 Cardinals. Let's get that out of the way first. He hasn't had consistent playing time, what with the constant surplus of outfielders on the team and the obsession with playing Yairo Munoz in the outfield, at-bats and innings have been hard to come by. Marcell Ozuna's recent downturn provided Bader a chance to play every day, but Tyler O'Neill's subsequent breakout has closed the door again.

    That curtailed playing time hasn't affected Bader's defense, of course.

    Fansided: St. Louis Cardinals: Keep Dylan Carlson in the Minors until 2020

    The St. Louis Cardinals occasionally will push a prospect very hard in their path to the Majors. They don't do it with everyone because not everyone can handle the rigors of adjusting from college/high school baseball to what the game is like as you get closer and closer to the MLB.

    The prospects that have the ability to get through the rigors of quick promotions usually end up being stars in the league for years. Recently, the only two young players the team has risked quick promotions on have been 2016 and 2018 first-round picks, Dylan Carlson and Nolan Gorman.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch: As he enters the Hall of Fame, Lee Smith thinking of Bob Gibson

    As former Cardinals pitcher Lee Smith touches up his Hall of Fame speech in the next few days before Sunday's induction, his thoughts are with another Cardinals Hall of Fame pitcher who won't be at Cooperstown, N.Y. That would be Bob Gibson, who has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy in Omaha, Neb.

    "My prayers are with him," said Smith. "I wish he could have been here. He was always a guy I looked up to -- guys like him and Nolan Ryan -- because I wanted to be a starting pitcher.

    "I always looked up to the starting pitchers because that was the stepping stone you put your career up against.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch: BenFred: Cardinals' miss on Luis Robert is starting to sting

    The Cuban prospect the Cardinals made a push for in May 2017 is already making Class AAA look like child's play.

    Between his early-July promotion and Friday, Robert was 13 for 30 with five home runs and an absurd batting line of .433/.486/1.067. That gives him a 2019 minor-league slash line of .356/.409/.659 through 82 games (331 at-bats) since he started this season at a Class A Advanced affiliate.

    The righthanded slugger has knocked 21 home runs, 23 doubles and seven triples across three minor league levels this season. He's also robbed 32 bases. Robert's rise has launched him to No.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Cardinals using changes, partnership in attempt to reboot, 'modernize' analytics department

    CINCINNATI -- A shift in role for the executive directly in charge of the Cardinals' analytics department and a new partnership with a technology company has prompted the team to begin restructuring that area of baseball operations, a team official confirmed.

    Dane Sorensen, who has been with the Cardinals the past eight season and spent the past three as their Director of Baseball Development, is returning to his native Minnesota as his wife pursues her career there. Sorensen will continue to work for the Cardinals as an analyst and in the analytics department, but he will no longer be a part of its day-to-day operation as a manager.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Why won't you find two upcoming Cardinals games on TV? Thank MLB

    The Cardinals will be affected twice this year, just as they were in 2018. And again it will be weekday afternoon contests. But unlike last season, when the two games Fox Sports Midwest lost were early in the season (April 11 and May 30), the pair that are set to be pulled from FSM this time are in the stretch run -- including one in the final full week.

    Those are part of a package of 13 games, all after the All-Star break, that MLB has sold to YouTube. The first was the Dodgers-Phillies game Thursday, with Indians-Blue Jays up next at 6 p.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Edman's sixth-inning slam caps Cardinals rally against Reds

    MLB

    CINCINNATI - In his first two-bats of the game, both against Reds starter Tanner Roark, Cardinals rookie Tommy Edman had already been fed his recommended daily allowance of curveballs. Roark struck him out twice with a curve, and the only thing that travels faster than a spent sunflower seed through a dugout is a scouting report.

    No compatible source was found for this media.

    "I was pretty confident that Stephenson was going to try and spin me, spin me into the ground," Edman said. "Watching the at-bats before (mine) he was throwing tons of sliders.
