Cardinals tie game on Kershaw's wild pitch (0:29)

You can't fault Dave Roberts for leaving in Clayton Kershaw to close out a dominant 1-0 shutout, even if he did have Kenley Jansen in the bullpen. He was cruising with a two-hitter, but then made one mistake, a wild pitch that allowed a hustling Randal Grichuk to score all the way from second base to tie the game.

The Cardinals activated P Tyler Lyons (right intercostal strain) from the 10-day DL on Tuesday and optioned P Sam Tuivailala to Triple-A Memphis following Sunday's game in a corresponding roster move.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is back to his dominant ways, and Cody Bellinger has proved he's as good as advertised. Meanwhile, the Cardinals have been happy to have Lance Lynn back, and Matt Carpenter's patience at the plate has been a plus.

Revisiting preseason questions: Cardinals

In mid-February, we wondered if Dexter Fowler could bring stability to the lineup and defensively. So far, he has given St. Louis some pop out of the leadoff spot, but the advanced metrics haven't been kind to his defense.

Power Rankings: Cardinals suffer steep drop

Losses in four of their last five games have the Cardinals back outside the top 10. Starting pitching has been a strength, but Adam Wainwright needs to continue improving.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Carlos Martínez is the 1st Cardinals pitcher to throw at least 9 scoreless innings and NOT get a win since Matt Morris in 2004.

Everybody wins the Matt Adams trade. The Braves needed someone to fill Freddie Freeman's shoes for the next two months-plusat first base, the Cardinals needed the roster spot with Stephen Piscotty due back soon from the DL, and Adams needed to be liberated from the danger of ever starting in left field ever again. He makes a fine temp in Atlanta, and could be a good bench bat for them to flip to a contender after Freeman returns.
