It manages to not look as hot as it feels.

The Cardinals' Kolten Wong appears to have injured his left leg trying to avoid 1B umpire Dana DeMuth. Doesn't look to be serious.

The Cardinals were planning to start Tyler Lyons Sunday, but after a while, manager Mike Matheny decided to "go after this with everything we've got," and instead used Lyons in extra innings. Lyons provided 4 2/3 scoreless innings to set the stage for the team's 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in 16 innings. The Cardinals will figure out who to start Sunday on Saturday. Matt Bowman is a candidate.

In a game that tied for longest in Dodgers vs. Cardinals history, Matt Adams hit a game-ending home run to give St. Louis a 4-3 victory in 16 innings. "Finally!" a fan shouted.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dodgers and Cardinals appear to be in an even battle tied 2-2 in the seventh inning. Tucked away in the linescore, however, is the fact that the Dodgers have 11 hits and have left 10 on base. The Cardinals have one hit and have left one on base.

Mark Saxon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cardinals felt they needed an extra arm in their bullpen, so they designated catcher Michael McKenry for assignment to make room for Miguel Socolovich. Now, they have lost McKenry, who elected free agency Friday after clearing waivers. In parts of seven seasons with three organizations, McKenry has batted .238 in the majors.

Matt Holliday emerged unscathed from a 95-mph Andrew Cashner fastball that struck him on the nose Thursday night. Holliday's brush with danger brought back memories for Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, who got hit in the mouth with a Rich Loiselle fastball in 1998. Matheny lost most of the teeth on the left side of his mouth and said he still gets follow-up dental work, but -- like Holliday -- played the next day. "I remember that well and every few months, the dentist and I remember that particular night together," Matheny said.
