Rzepczynski helped Cards win 2011 title

The '11 trade deadline was very kind to the Cardinals, who went on to win the World Series after acquiring Marc Rzepczynski and three others from the Blue Jays. Rzepczynski pitched 7 1/3 innings in the NLCS and World Series, allowing one run while striking out eight. July trades that paid off in October

Rare blown lead for Jeurys Familia, Mets

The Cardinals pass the Mets in the wild-card standings after New York -- for the first time this season -- loses a game it led after eight innings.

Familia's saves streak ends at 52 in Mets' loss

Yadier Molina and pinch hitter Kolten Wong each stroked an RBI double in the ninth inning, and the Cardinals ended Jeurys Familia's streak of 52 straight saves in rallying past the Mets.

Pretty epic battle between Adam Wainwright and Yoenis Cespedes in the seventh inning. Wainwright was riding a string of eight quality starts in his previous nine outings and he has regained manager Mike Matheny's trust late in games, so he was facing Cespedes even though his pitch count had gone over 110 with two runners on in the seventh inning. After Cespedes fouled off a good high fastball on 3-and-2, Wainwright hung a curveball on his 117th pitch and Cespedes hit it off the facing of the second deck for a two-run home run, his 22nd, that gave the Mets a 4-3 lead.

The Cardinals remain noncommittal about who will start for them Saturday in Miami, but they continue to call top prospect Alex Reyes' removal from a Triple-A start Tuesday as an emergency measure in case one of the in-house options is unavailable. The likeliest pitcher to start in an important game against the Marlins is reliever Tyler Lyons. "He's doing everything he can and needs to to earn that. We're still heavily considering him if all things work out right up to that point," Matheny said. The Cardinals envision Lyons as part of their rotation long-term, but they are carrying him in their bullpen because he is out of options.

Shades of Stan Musial for Jedd Gyorko

Gyorko has homered in both ends of a doubleheader twice in the last six days. The last Cardinals player to accomplish the feat twice in a single season was Hall of Famer Stan Musial, who did so on Aug. 23 and Sept. 11, 1949, per the Elias Sports Bureau.
